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.
This mandoline is decent enough for just slicing foods. I appreciate the adjustable depth - it adjusts with screws instead of fixed-depth inserts, so you have extreme control over the thickness of slices.
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.
I really like the slicer but the cutting board has a warp and it is difficult to get even slices. I'm sure this is only this one item and needs to be replaced. I'll will inquire about it today. otherwise it meets my expectations. Be aware that there is a maximum thickness of only 3 mm.
