I've gone through three different slicers before settling on the Benriner. No doubt the best I've had yet. The blade is like a razor and the infinitely adjustable depth can be set as fine as you want. Scary as hell to use - the food holder/ guide is quite small which makes it tricky sometimes and there's a large gap in front of the blade to allow for the cross slice blades to slot in. Everything comes apart, including the ability to remove the blade. Not perfect, but the best I've come across by a long way.
The mandoline is a pleasure to use. I previously bought a cheap one and really there is no comparison. I was surprised by how well the additional julienne tool works. Just be very careful when using it, it's very VERY sharp. The build quality is impressive, it's plastic but feels very sturdy and solid.
Made my first sauerkraut with my new Benriner and extremely happy with the results. 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.
