To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The blades are sharp, so they do a decent job at cutting. Not sure how long it will take until the julienne blades will become blunt. The slicer blade can be sharpened, as it comes out. But since the blade is mounted in the mandolin with a screw, there are litlle spaces both on the front and back where the food goes in and are impossible to clean. One needs to use a tooth pick and a special brush to take the stuff out. I'm worried that professional kitchens won't even bother. Anyway, the time spent cleaning can easily be used for slicing with a knife. Terrible design!
I first bought a benriner classic 25 years ago. It was better than many other makes at delivering the fine cut veg I wanted and was still going strong five years ago when my husband and I opened a coffee shop. We used it many times daily (home made coleslaw!) and when it eventually gave out, had no hesitation in replacing it. We sold our shop a while back and lost it in the process. Have been meaning to buy a replacement since then - have just ordered the newer version and am very happy. It has some useful new features (non-slip grip on the base, hook for resting on bowls etc) that are great - wish I’d had them on my old ones. A good, reliable cutter that will give you fine shards of veg. Beware, it is very sharp and you can seriously injure yourself if you don’t use it carefully. The veg holder is a good idea, but we found it much easier and safer to use a non-cut glove protector. Although you do still need to be careful even then. Can be tricky to clean the channels for the blades, but everything comes apart and for the harder to reach places we used a purpose-bought toothbrush to get in the nooks. All round, I absolutely recommend this.
J'ai hésité longtemps avant de me procurer le modèle récent beaucoup plus cher. Cependant je dois dire que je suis pleinement satisfait: extrêmement coupant(c'est écrit dessus "Watch your fingers", facile à nettoyer, simple, robuste, l'antidérapant est efficace, l'ajustement de la lame est très simple et son aiguisage un jeu d'enfant.
Easy to use and easy to clean. Works like a charm. Sure glad I bought this mandolin slicer. I highly recommend purchasing it without any reservations. Only one warning, the blade is super sharp, so use the holder to move the item you are slicing across the blade. Enjoy.
Do not NEVER use this slicer for carrots or potatoes.....the tooth are bent so I can't use it anymore. I bought this because I thought it would be stronger than others. The quality is just same as MADE IN CHINA $20 slicer.
