Maybe there is a version of this implement that works, but don't waste your money on this product. I wish I had believed the other bad reviews.
I am editing to add a note to this review. I have found one use for this slicer - it makes wafer thin slices of raw potato, which placed on a silicon sheet in the microwave for four or five minutes make delicious and totally fat free crisps. The slicer will be staying for that reason. other than that the critique stands as above.
Overall, don't bother.
It's main job is slicing for microwave crisps, and I've produced many successful batches (a fantastic fat-free snack for people fighting the sat fat war).
This mandolin also has a Julienne feature, which I now use several times per week. It only takes a couple of minutes and the resulting carrot sticks microwave in 3 or 4 minutes. I've discovered these are popular with people who aren't otherwise very keen on veg. However the Julienne blades are unforgiving and you do need to make sure you keep your fingers away from them (been there, seen it, done it, wearing the plaster).
It goes through the dish-washer happily on the top shelf, but unsurprisingly the clear plastic deck is starting to become discoloured.
The hand shield is another matter entirely.
It has shaped edges that suggest it should clip to the slicer in some way (which it doesn't) and the spikes to hold the food are so short they're of no use at all. Every food I tried came loose, causing the food to cut incorrectly, the guard to drop taking my hand dangerously close to the blade and usually leads to the blades cutting pieces out of the hand guard, which won't do the blades any good. I have come very close to cutting chunks out of both fingers and the hand itself. It's worrying that I'm finding it actually less dangerous to not use the guard/holder whilst slicing the food, but that's not an option if the julienne blades are in place.
The Julienne blades don't seem to work quite so easily as the plain slicer, but they work well enough once you get the method right.
In all, whilst the slicer works well, because of the hand guard, this slicer is extremely dangerous and I wouldn't like to recommend it to anyone. I'm actually in the process of reporting it to Amazon as a health risk.

Excellent, does the job of slicing etc. But buy some protective gloves as otherwise you will take off bits of your fingers. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
