This is an excellent slicer. I've used everything in it from carrots (when making my carrot version of thai papaya salad) julienned into matchstick thickness to wide thin slices of Korean radish. Never failed me.

Two drawbacks though:

1. The safety guard is a joke. It doesn't hold the veggies very well and is a pain to use effectively...which means I usually don't use it. I've cut my fingers on this mandolin twice now, which isn't bad for two years of regular useage, but I don't like the sight of blood so I'll leave it as a major detractor. Luckily for me, I cut myself on the julienne part and not the actual wide slicer. In other words, my finger meat was left shredded but intact. Whew!

2. The metal parts rust. Yep. They rust. Hence the reason I am now shopping around for another slicer. Don't know yet if I'll get another Benriner. Might look into the Bohn.

***Update***
Apparently Benriner realized the metal parts rusted because their mandolins now come with plastic screws to hold the julienne blades in place and to adjust the thickness level.

The French Laundry Cookbook says this is what they use. I'm a banquet cook and this is what we use. They are a great buy and will fit in a roomy knife case. Those little safety handles don't work on any of the plastic mandolines from any maker, and we have a classic expensive stainless steel mandoline that NO ONE at work is willing to use, because it doesn't have a safety handle either, but grave bodily damage promises to be far greater in severity. There is a Shun mandoline (retail 500$) that actually has a handle connected to a sliding rail that looks like it will work in theory, but Cook's Illustrated rated it at the bottom. Watch your fingers, hold veggies with a towel and use the leftover scrap for a stockpot instead of trying to get the last chip from a potato or shred from a carrot.

I bought 5 of it. I got another cheaper slicer. Smaller size and with cheaper plastic screws for blade.

At this moment I would like to warn potential buyers to avoid this cheating.

This little guy works great, but unless you are absolutely positive that you will never want to cut anything larger than a medium sized mushroom, do yourself a favor and get the "Super" model. It's essentially the same thing only it's wide enough to take on whole potatoes, onions and fennel bulbs, and it has metal adjustment knobs to boot.

It's my understanding that these are high carbon steel blades, and yes, that does mean that they will rust if you put them in the dishwasher or forget to dry them thoroughly. Nothing a little Barkeeper's Friend can't fix, and a light coating of vegetable oil after washing can help keep the rust at bay if you live in a particularly humid environment.

A cut resistant glove would be a wise investment whatever model you end up with.

One star because I don't trade safety for a few bucks. I was a professional chef for 20 years... as soon as I held the safety guard in my hand, my hand knew something was wrong. The guard itself puts your fingertips one little slip away from pain! Not only that, but because there are no rubber feet anywhere, you have to hold the mandoline up with one hand and try to keep it stable while slicing...maybe a wet towel under the front edge would help, but not worth it. The "guard" has a few plastic teeth that are inadequate for holding most items for julienne. It's sharp, and is wonderful for making micro-thin slices of whole carrots and cukes. BUT the julienne function requires so much force (try doing 1/4" potato sticks) that any accident is going to be serious.

Hate that it doesn't have a stand, but this is a must for home cooks. It really cuts down prep time in the kitchen (ba-dum-tss). I broke in this item julienning carrots and daikon so I could pickle them for a Vietnamese vermicelli bowl and it worked so well, I nearly cried. It was my first time using a mandoline and I was deathly afraid of slicing myself, but when I started using it, I found the experience not daunting at all. Can't wait to slice onions and get slaw out of this really great mandoline.

I do the cooking in our house and cutting vegetables takes up way too much time, so based on the reviews I thought I would try this product.

Pro's;
1). The unit is very easy to use.
2). It is very easy to clean/hand wash
3) The blade seems even sharper than a razor blade. It really cuts with out pressure.
4). It is flat so it is easy to store.
5). I have the wide version n I find it easy to hold on to with my left hand n slice with my right.
6). Slicing veggies is now fast an effortless.

Cons;
1) The device provided to hold the veggies while slicing is worthless. They should save money n not even send it. As a result, I have to hold the veggies in my hand to slice which is very, very dangerous, n yes I too sliced off skin on my finger with the first use, n I was being Sooooo careful too!
2). Because of the above, special gloves are mandatory!! Do not even think of buying this slicer without buying slicing gloves. The cheap ones work fine. The blades are unbelievably sharp.
3). Considering how simply made this device is, basically a large razor in a wide piece of plastic (that can not go in the dish washer), I feel it is way over priced.

On occasion I use a fork to hold the veggies being sliced, but this is not as fast as holding with my gloved right hand, but the blade frequently hits the glove, so far with no damage. I have learned that for me, the best method is to hold the slicer at a 45 degree angle over a plate n not try to slice flat over a bowl. It seems much easier to,hold the slicer this way n for me is safer.

Hope this was helpful!
