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.
I use this product often to slice tomatoes, onions and cucumbers. Very sharp and easy to set the thickness. The thickness cam and julienne blades are easily removed for cleaning. The thickness adjustment only ratchets in one direction, so be careful to not rotate it with the safety guard in place or the julienne blades will jam. Ask me how I know. Still the best mandolin slicer I ever saw. Glad I purchased this product. I highly recommend it.
I really like this mandoline! It is very adjustable and extremely sharp but I don't feel unsafe using it. The food pusher has very sharp spikes and it grips the food really well. I bought it to make microwave potato chips and it really did a great job.
I like having the gloves for items that might hard to control with just the guide.
This is my first mandoline food slicer and it will take a little learning curve to get used to it. The slice size increments on the adjustment knob is measured in millimeters and not tenths of an inch, so a couple of sample slices were needed to see the thickness it produces. I hope it will work well with beef, pork and poultry to make deli sliced meat for sandwich's with the price of deli meat per pound in the grocery stores.
