When I first got this mandoline, I was as disappointed with the finger guard as many other people. It simply doesn't work. Plus it takes too much muscles and elbow grease to get the job done, because of the awkward ergonomics of angled motion. On the bright side, the blades are all razor sharp. So the slicer itself is still a keeper. I researched a bit on the Internet and saw people use those cut proof gloves. Yes they are awesome and keep you safe. But for the fellow minimalists out there, here's what you need --
As ridiculous as it sounds, this is all you need. Just stab a stainless steel fork onto the top part of whatever you're slicing, have those fork teeth parallel to the blade, and start rolling! (As opposed to positioning on the side of the veggies when using the default finger guard, you want to insert the fork on the top. Say you're slicing a carrot, you would leave the fork into where the leafy part of the plant goes. I should have took a picture to make this easier but oh well...) It's so much easier, faster and safer. Angle the fork smartly and you'll get a metal shield from the natural curve of the fork. And it requires so much less strength. I mean, if a 5'3 110lbs Asian girl can do it, I don't see any reason you can't.
*** Size doesn't always matter ***
Some people mention the size of the mandoline. I haven't found this to be an issue. American vegetables are notoriously large in size. But you can always cut things in half to fit the working area. Especially for veggies like cabbage and onion, they are going to be in slices or strips or ribbons anyway. I've julienned half of a medium sized butternut squash (pictured) without any problem.
*** Mandoline vs spiralizer vs food processor ***
If you want to make things like zucchini noodles, this mandoline is proved to work well. You will get straight noodles instead of curly spaghetti, which could be great depending on your preference. Plus you could do a lot of other stuff with this slicer. Chips, paper thin ribbons, lasagna sheets, you name it. Spiralizers look a little stupid anyway... Food processor is another workhorse in the kitchen. But it doesn't julienne veggies as beautifully as a mandoline or a spiralizer. The match sticks tend to be shorter...than a match stick.
*** Waste ***
Yeah there will be a little chuck that won't go into the blade at the end. It's more wasteful compared to using a knife. But it doesn't bother me that much as I get so much out of the slicer already. Plus you run into the same problem with a food processor as well.
The second was upgraded version and had better hardware, knobs and screw.
1/4'' cut blade times were straight but after first use of making shoestring fries the had the bent hooked shape as well.
I would say this slice needs to be used very carefully and lightly to avoid damaging it and hurting yourself.
Along with the slicer, I purchased some cut resistant gloves which any one in the kitchen should have.
the safety device included is a waste of time and potentially dangerous.
The one thing this is good for is slicing very thin.
Makes for great caramelized onions, thin cukes or zucchini but there are probably much better designs on the market.
This one is sufficient for now but does not deliver as you would expect from video and description.
Once I wear out the blades, I would look for another.
This slicer will cut perfect paper thin slices and thicker. I use it to prepare veggies for our chef's salads. The extra blades work well (until you run one thru the disposal.....buts that's another story). I'll be ordering a new one soon.
Great product. I have the larger one to, but use the smaller green one almost all the time. It's quick and produces beautiful slices. Just be careful as you would with a very sharp knife. Do not let inexperienced people use this. I have a sister-in-law that cuts herself with a butter knife. No way do I let her use this.
