Bought this about 7 years ago to slice potatoes thinly enough for gratin dauphinoise. I'd previously used my food processor but the size is much better with this mandolin, you can adjust it to suit you perfectly.

One great thing about it is it takes minimal space in a drawer so is great for people like me who don't have the luxury of a big kitchen (or even a medium sized one!) and have to utilise their space. It can also be used for julienne and grating but I predominantly use it for the purpose I bought it for. I no longer have a food processor, just knives and this. And of course the Kenwood Chef for cake mixtures which I'd never have trusted a food processor for anyway (not enough air).

At the time I bought this mandolin, it was either £20 or £30 for this from Peter Jones or Lakeland or buy a professional mandolin or £150+. This is super sharp and I nearly sliced my fingers off when I first got it so I wouldn't be surprised if those shops had stopped selling it for health and safety reasons. I've learnt that it's better to actually use the guard they thoughtfully provide or waste a bit of food instead of slice your finger off, so as long as you're on board with that, I think this is a great buy. There are now options which are between the two price ranges, I haven't tried them but seven years later, I'm still happy with my purchase.

I have this mandoline since few months, I didn't buy it in amazon, but in a local shop in barcelona (a smaller one, cost me 50 euros! In amazon costs only 35! should have checked here before I bought it, although in Amazon USA it cost only 29 USD!!! So I am sure the seller can lower the price in amazon uk).

I know this looks "ugly", not fancy nor resistant as a inox one may look like, but it works great and very resistant! A lot better than a WFM inox one I had. Super sharp slides, with 4 different functions (slides, coarse, Julianne and "very fine Julianne"). Very easy to change the blades, not difficult as those mandolin with V shape blades.

And I must said it is used by lots of chefs/food writer like Gordon Ramsay, Michael Ruhlman... etc.

There are also bad sides like everything in our lives. It cannot do grating and dicing. But I think for grating it is better to buy a microplane zester or grater, it is not the best task for a mandolin. On the other hand, the finger protector is too flat and too small, you can only apply it when the food only left a small piece, but probably you have already cut yourself before that if you are not very careful.

For dicing, I haven't found yet any gadget can do so, with a reasonable size, without complicated assembling process. If anyone has found it, please write me your comments! Thanks a lot!

I've used a number of different mandolins and this Benriner is simply the most efficient and best slicer.

The beauty of this model is that you can adjust the thinness of the slices by turning the small button on the back of the mandolin to raise or lower the top part of the mandolin. It's therefore effortless to set your desired slice size and with no additional parts, so simple to clean.

You receive three blades for juliennes. I inserted the medium blade to julienne a carrot and I was simply amazed that a) this mandolin could actually julienne it properly and without applying huge force and b) that the juliennes were perfect. Passing the "carrot test," which my other mandolins could not manage, indicated that I was working with a quality product.

I've since used it for slicing shallots, tomatoes, lemons and cabbage, all of which it managed beautifully. Incidentally I set the blade to the thinnest slice size and sliced a lemon, the result was so thin, it was like a microscope specimen.

Some other reviewers have cast doubt on the efficiency of the accompanying finger guard. It's not brilliant compared to those with a larger plunger style grip but it does work, better with some things than others.

As a product the only negative thing I can say about it is that it's a little thin for larger items but so far, that's not been a problem for me.

In regards to the shopping experience, buyers should be aware that if you purchase this from Amazon reseller EIKOKUJIN NI AKIHABARA [ Send Tokyo style ] who are based in Japan, there is a high probability that you will be charged VAT and a Post Office handling charge before your delivery is made. In my case this totalled £18.85! There was no mention of this anywhere on the Amazon order page. So while the product is excellent, I would strongly recommend purchasing from a UK based supplier. You will pay less in the end.

I picked this mandolin slicer as the other reviews said that it was well made, and that's fair enough: the quality is decent, especially the blades.

Two big downsides, though. First, the instructions are not in English. In fact, they're not in any Roman alphabet language, so I can't even run them through Google translate. I figure it can't be that hard to use, but if there's any nuance to the technique beyond "rub vegetable up and down over the blade", then I've missed it.

Second, the design is not very ergonomic. It's too easy to cut your fingers on the impressively sharp blades. There's a big screw poking out of the back, so it doesn't lie flat. It's very difficult to clean the last bits of vegetable (and finger) out from under the blades. There's nowhere to store the other blades. The finger protector just doesn't hold things properly until they're already 90% sliced.

Credit where it's due, the julienne blades work very well. But is it worth the time to get it out, swap blades, julienne a carrot, apply a band-aid, clean the thing and then hide it again where the kids won't find it? Given that you need a knife a chopping board anyway, to get things down to small enough chunks for effective mandolining, I tend to just manually slice everything unless I really REALLY want perfectly neat (and slightly bloodied) sticks.
