I have the second one right now, fourteen years later.
I was a cook at home girl with a lot of veggies, but over the last few years I ramped that up.
I have cooked three full meals for four plus people every day for more than four years.
The V bottom is dull so I use the guide and cut carrots on the higher part of the V (towards the sides).
When I say carrots, I mean a pound at a time for dinner. This is the BEST and fastest veggy slicer I have ever used.
You could make sushi veggies on it! I LOVE this item. The only issue is that it never gets put away.
Salads, omelets, nachos, soup...
I use it to dice onions and peppers in seconds when I make chili, sloppy joes or tacos. I use it whenever I make hashbrowns, potato chowder, potatoes au gratin or even french fries as I can safely and swiftly slice potatoes into cubes, thick or thin strips, chips, scalloped slices or fries. It can julienne tender-crisp delicate slices of veggies for stir-fry or a salad or side dish. You can make quick easy carrot and celery sticks for snacking, cucumber slices for salads, tomato slices for burgers -- you name it this does it.
I love my Borner V-slicer and recommend it to everyone. I still buy this for every wedding gift and housewarming party that I've attended since 1999! Yes, there are less expensive mandolins and more expensive ones, but for the ease of use, super quick clean up, handy storage/safety holder and just overall sturdiness and reliability of this little tool I rate it 5 stars all around. I know I sound a bit over the top raving about it, buy I could not recommend it more enthusiastically.
Wait--I can! This thing rocks! Buy it, try it, you will adore it!
It has drastically reduced my preparation time on many dishes and it has become as essential to my kitchen as my chef's knife and fry pan. But again, this is a high quality product with German-made blades that stay sharp longer than you will. It's super sharp and slicey.Read more ›
Averaged 200 lbs tomatoes & 50 lbs onions per week. After about
a year it would lose a little edge but I took it home for personal
use or gave them out to customers. Superior over restaurant types
(never used my Tomato King... again). Its cheap and easy to
clean & sanitize. Beware of cheaper plastic types.
The V blade is the best...
Here are some of the distinctions that you might not notice from a distance.
First off, it is a great slicer. The parts fit together securely and it feels like quality. It's made in Germany and has a stainless steel blade, which does eventually get dull. It can be sharpened, but it's a little awkward.
Just because you haven't cut yourself with a knife for years, doesn't mean that you're safe with this tool. The cutting action with this tool is distinctly different from using a knife. Take my advice and use the safety handle... even when you think you don't need it.
I remember cutting an orangeonce; my hands were wet... the blade hit a seed and my hand slipped. In a flash I had cut half way through the tip of my index finger. The good news is that it was a really clean cut and healed within a week, but I learned my lesson.
You have two different sizes of julianne cuts. One is nice for french fries, the other is more like shoestring potatoes. There are also two different thicknesses of slices.
If you want to make some quick diced tomatoes or salsa, just make a few cross-cuts on a tomato (after placing it into the safety handle) and then run it through the larger julianne blade.
I imagine that you will be happy with your purchase if you chose to get one. I gave everybody a satisfaction guarantee, and only had one come back, from someone who was just scared to use it.

The main blade was literally so dull upon arrival that I could run my fingers up and down with no concern. I think that it left the factory without being sharpened. Read morePublished 1 day ago by brian
