Now for the positive qualities:
The main blade height has four preset positions. Initially I thought I'd dislike not having the option to vary the blade height to suit my requirements but each setting is perfect for the job in hand, and due to the positive locking and rigid design, there's no flex in the mandoline deck thus ensuring consistently excellent results.
A clever, side-mounted slider raises and lowers vertical blades, in separate stages, allowing for julienne or chips settings as desired, and the reversible main blade makes it easy to switch between fluted or straight cuts for waffle cuts etc.
I particularly like the well sliding holder which is clipped to a rail on the side of the mandoline and can be rotated clear of the main deck, if you feel like risking your fingers. It's designed in two parts, much like a food processor funnel, allowing a high degree of control with minimal down pressure. Furthermore, a built in stop prevents any accidental damage to the blade due to the food spikes hitting it, and does so with the minimum of wastage.
In short, despite being a little tiresome to clean after use, I think it's excellent design, sturdy construction and excellent performance more than make up for it.
Be warned: Every mandoline will get you at some point. It's just science. Although the useful protector and guide kept me safe from slicing part of my finger off, it didn't protect me from picking it up whilst the julienne blades were exposed out of the dishwasher..doh.
As for the product, great quality, great slicing, buy it.
I brought this as an upgrade from my old exhibition brought mandolin.
its great for preparing salad and cutting chips etc.
very sturdy build and easy to get started.
There are adjustable knobs to use for depth of slices you require and very safe
with the guide and the fact you do not have to handle the blades (like on my old mandolin)
it also is dishwasher proof so easy to clean too.
not the cheapest - but you get what you pay for.
Looked at other cheaper mandolins, but this one appeared to be the one that others are modeled on (note the PL8 pressed into the bed).
Good sturdy machine, love it.
