I carefully read the text and looked at the pictures. The name Benriner, the leading supplier of Japanese-made mandolins, was mentioned several times, so I knew it was good quality. I placed my order and soon I received a turning slicer made by an unknown company - in China, not Japan. I returned it immediately and left the seller feedback, with my reasons for returning it. It has been two weeks since the seller has received my return and so far they haven't acknowledged it or my email (sent four weeks ago). I can't recommend thejuicercompany or its product.
