The Swissmar V-Prep V-Slicer Mandoline set is a joint venture by two well established kitchenware companies. As long term partners, Swissmar clearly knows that Börner, with their 50+ years of experience and being the makers of the Original V-Slicer®, were the perfect manufacturer of the V-Prep V-Slicer. Combined with the Swissmar designed multi-functional bowl, this set provides everything you need - it's safe, easy to use, compact, stores completely protected and offers the performance and results that one expects from a Börner made V-Slicer. You too can prepare foods like a professional, with the safe and simple to use V-Prep. The V-Prep Mandoline is made of durable ABS plastic with German surgical grade stainless steel blades. Three inserts allow you to slice, julienne and shred cuts. The ambidextrous Food Safety Holder has a serrated edge to safely push food off slicer and requires very little pressure. Steel pins grip most sizes and shapes of produce to create even slices every time. The multi- function bowl with lid stores all parts when not in use and catches all sliced fruits and vegetables when in use. Easy to clean; rinse under hot or cold running water immediately after use.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
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...
When people say this is sharp, they really mean it. The main blade and the two julienne inserts are EXTREMELY sharp. Don't even look at them wrong, because they will cut you. For a slicing device, that's a great thing, but make sure the pets (or kids) never touch it. I'm stating the obvious, but this would be a useful tool in prison. Just saying, one slap with this thing and ears and noses would be hitting the floor.
Where was I....oh yeah...
First time I used it, I put it through it's paces. I had 12 different vegetables ready to slice & dice. Carrots were first. I julienned them like a pro, but using the food holder left a quarter of each carrot chunk stuck on the main blade. Plus the carrot had stained the white plastic. No amount of soap and hot water got the stain out completely. At this, I was disappointed. I may have to use something stronger to take the pinkish/orange stain off. I'll revisit this issue later on.
Next, it was time to slice tomatoes, cucumber, daikon, onions, zucchini, bell peppers of various colors, in which it did an excellent job....and not a single drop of blood spilt.
I then shredded some lettuce and cabbage, with no real problems once I cut the veggies down to fit the width of the guide.
It took 6 days to eat the pounds of vegetables I had processed with this thing. It was quite a few healthy meals I enjoyed. A nice change from the normal carnivorous diet of mine. Perhaps there's something to that vegetarian diet that someone mentioned to me. A discussion for another day perhaps.
Lastly, on the seventh day, I made french fries to go with my much anticipated steak. I have to say that that was the fastest I've ever prepared homemade fries. Color me impressed (or something beige maybe).
Finding a good bowl (with a solid base) helps this whole process along. I've got 10" and 12" steel bowls which work great to catch the food. The small notches on the bottom end of the mandoline locked on the bowls perfectly. Anything smaller than 10" or larger than 12" probably wouldn't work.
Being left-handed, I still haven't found the perfect grip for the food holder yet. But I'm sure with time, I'll figure that out.
Overall, I am extremely satisfied with my purchase so far. Hopefully, as long as I keep using the food SAFETY holder, I'll keep all my fingers intact and attached.
Have a wonderful day, and happy slicing,
UPDATE (1/30/17): My mandoline is still going strong. Suprisingly, I still have all my fingers. Why is the 7-piece kit cheaper than the 5-piece? It makes no sense! I used a little diluted bleach to clean the stains, and it looks brand new again, although my black shirt that I was wearing does not. Bleach and black cloth makes brown. Who woulda thunk.
Review subject: Swissmar Borner V-1001 V-Slicer Plus Mandoline
There are two things to remember: the blades are extremely sharp - I can't stress that enough. The second thing is to remember to use a light touch, don't press down, let the blades do the work. Seems to work well slicing tomatoes that are firm and not overly ripe. I recommend using the thicker slicer I think that's the wavy side, or the tomato will just mush up.
The unit cleans very easily as do the plates by just running them under hot water and letting them air dry. Haven't tried dicing yet but will follow the advice of one reviewer and rotate the vegetable 90° with each slice. The only downside is I'm having a problem getting the blades back into the holder. Can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. But all in all a pretty good gadget for the money.
Just a heads up to those who have access to YouTube, put the name of the item and the model number in the search box and you can see a video showing how to use this.
