So I purchased what I thought was the Super but mistakenly ordered the Jumbo.
This is the biggest in the range, it doesn't come with any teeth for cutting julienne strips
It just slices....
Instead of returning it, I realised it would be very useful for certain tasks in the kitchen which it found out to be. So I kept it
On all 3 models the finger guards new design is absolutely perfect!
Long story short I have now ended up with all 3 models of the new design in white
Once again another Amazon 5 Star 🌟 🌟🌟🌟🌟 product! Great Price, Great Quality and Supersonic Delivery Speed!! 🕺👨🍳👍☺️
I did a lot of research before deciding on this mandolin, it was worth the time, it is a professional tool made to last and a pleasure to use.

I also own the previous version of this mandolin. In order to adjust the cut thickness on the old model, it was necessary to dial in two small thumb screws on the back. This new model replaces the screws with a large dial which greatly simplifies thickness adjustments — it's definitely a big upgrade not having to fiddle with two small screws.
My first mandolin was a Selkin Borner V1 which for some reason was very highly rated (it was America's Test Kitchen's pick & they are usually pretty good about their picks). However, I found it to be flimsy & a pain to store with it’s sharp, bulky blade attachments (by contrast the Benriner's blades are small & thin & easy to store). Eventually, I got so fed up with the Borner that I upgraded to my first Benriner
I'm not sure if they are still making a "narrow" version (the old green colored model). I recommend getting the wide version as it's extra width comes in handy while still being ergonomic. I haven't seen or tried the new jumbo model, but if you are slicing something like large eggplants, it might be for you.
Regarding some of the complaints in the reviews, if you are finding it difficult to use, I would recommend watching a YouTube video or two — for example, ChefSteps has a quick video of Chef Grant using the old model. The blades are crazy sharp, so if they are not cutting your product properly (also a complaint in the reviews) check the manual or watch some videos.
And a finally a word of caution: Mandolins are famous for cutting fingers. If you are at all uneasy about using the slicer, use the included safety guard keeping all digits on the guard. Otherwise use a good technique as Chef Grant does in his video or use your palm as you'll see in restaurants.
P.S. The picture was my mise en place for BBC Good Food's Horseradish Potato Dauphinoise recipe. I can also highly recommend this dish, and it would be a great way to introduce yourself to your new Benringer mandolin!
My only real complaint is with the interchangeable inserts - they're not blades. Just hard metal spikes in the way of the blade. So because they are blunt spikes instead of razor blades the inserts end up tearing/shredding the food into strips (rather than actual slicing), and it is much harder to push food through these blunt spikes.
If I were to start over I would get the Swissmar Borner - The cut depth isn't infinitely adjustable, but the cutting inserts are actual blades, and the hand guard is better too.
The removable blades are quite blunt, so only capable of cutting very soft uniform vegetables like courgette, and only when pushed through with considerable force.
It's useless for onions despite the instructions showing this as working - you end up with a half-cut onion that breaks apart under the force required to push it though.
Amazon Prime - delivered in 2 days, no duty etc.
Size of cutting bed is 9.5cm x 30cm
1 x-axis blade with one cutting edge, i.e. not reversible
3 y-axis blades of various cutting widths for Julienning (I watched 'Master Chef' once).
The slicer is better than the one I was expecting. Definitely "super" sized.
I already cut my fingertips on my previous mandolin slicer, and will be trying not to do it again.
