I received my Mandoline today, and upon opening the box I noticed that there were some markings on the top surface, and that the blade was dirty. Upon closer inspection I found some food on the bottom of the blade (see photo).
Have been after a Mandoline for a while now. Was originally going to get the original Benriner that you see all the chefs using on TV. But after looking into it, was worried that someone may get hurt using it incorrectly and slicing a finger. Opted for the Oxo Good grips mandoline slicer because. V shaped blade seems to make it easier to cut various items, from starchy potatoes, hard carrots, soft tomatoes, onions, lemons, oranges etc, It cuts very well. It is very easy to adjust the thickness of the cut with a simple dial. No need to worry about adjusting both sides to make it even. One dial controls the thickness. It has a built in stand that lifts up the top and at a slant so you can slice away with ease, not having to manually support the weight of the mandoline as you slice. Included with the kit was julienne attachments, which are very useful they make great french fries. The finger guard works well, leaving only a small amount of fruit or vegetable behind that cannot be cut. Storage, the whole thing including attachments clip and store inside the mandoline making storage a breeze. Clean up is ok, however before using it, I remove any attachments I don't need and set aside, otherwise they will get dirty even though your not using them. Very happy with this purchase, makes food prep a breeze and saves a lot of time.
Brilliant gadget - perfect for making homemade coleslaw - and the easily swappable blades make grating just as easy as finely slicing. It's easy to use, easy to clean and being from OXO Good Grips it's a sturdy piece of kit. It also takes up very little room in the kitchen (which is a plus).
I love using this — the balance is good, results are excellent, and it’s easy to clean. I did find it quite difficult to fit together at first, but I seem to be getting the hang of it now. I bought it because I wanted something more advanced than my little hand-held Oxo mandoline (which continues to be useful for small jobs), and I have always found Oxo equipment to be highly usable.
A brilliant bit of kit that is very versatile. It has a lot of different (treacherous) blades cleverly hidden within. The only thing is it is a bit fiddly to clean. Definitely a dishwasher job if you don’t want to inadvertently slash yourself! All said and done though it slices beautifully and quickly and if used carefully is very safe.
