We created the first OXO mandolin slicer in 2004, and we've been perfecting the art of slicing and dicing fruits and vegetables ever since. The OXO chef's mandolin slicer 2.0 combines the best features from our original mandolin slicer, with some updates to make it even easier to use, like an angled blade and a top-view indicator window to make switching between blade settings quick and seamless. Create up to 21 different cuts with thickness settings in 0.5-Mm intervals, straight and wavy blades, and built-in julienne and French fry blades. Prep like a chef without needing professional knife skills - or a knife at all.

OXO has always made great quality kitchen accessories, I own several OXO products. The OXO Good Grips Chef's Mandoline Slicer 2.0 follows along in the company tradition of quality materials and construction with thoughtful design. I had previously owned a Swissmar Borner V-1001 V-Slicer that used a V-blade design, but I had not used it very much. V-blade slicers, to me, are the form of mandoline slicer that have always made me most paranoid about cutting myself. For whatever reason the OXO does not produce this fear reaction. All mandoline slicers these days come with protective food pushers. The pusher on the OXO is large and has a wide enough skirt to make accidental cuts highly unlikely. Nevertheless, DO NOT copy chefs that you may see on TV and videos who casually run food through a mandoline slicer bare handed. They are professional fools. You must be an amateur adult and use the pusher. The straight blade assembly design and the way that the blade is removed and changed on the OXO impress as a generally safer idea than the V-blade design on the Swissmar and similar slicers. The OXO Good Grips Chef's Mandoline Slicer 2.0 is to me superior in general to the Swissmar slicer as well as superior to the already excellent original model OXO Good Grips Chef's Mandoline Slicer. I expect the OXO to get a lot of use around here. RECOMMENDED.
Large yet compact and completely self contained, what a great design! No more blades in additional storage bins that can fall out or get lost or you risk cutting the heck out of your fingers searching around in the drawer they are hiding in. A dial selects the thickness of the slice and at the end also pops out cutters for either French fries or Julienne cuts. Turn the primary blade around and you get a wavy cut. So cool!
I have found the V-slicers tend to get dull at the V point while it is nearly impossible to slice off to the sides, rendering the entire unit useless. A slanted blade solves that problem nicely since you use more of the entire blade when cutting and don't get stuck like it can happen with a V-point slicer.
The blade guard is quite large and makes it nearly impossible to cut yourself even if you slip. Last night I sliced a bunch of potatoes very thinly to make German pan fried potatoes with lots of equally thinly sliced onions and bacon bits. Yumm! A pain to do with my worn out V-slicer, a breeze with this race horse of a slicer.
I own quite a few Oxo kitchen utensils and gadgets, and none have ever disappointed. Their salt and pepper grinders work very well. And I have spent a lot of money on slicers over the years in search of the one I could actually live with and that didn't have me end up in the ER for stitches. I now always wear a cut resistant glove when I use a slicer, and so far, so good.
By the way, I also tried slicing a ripe tomato into fairly thin slices, and this slicer did it flawlessly.
Now, the Oxo has a really nice, wide food holder that is 6-1/2” in diameter. It really is a safety feature in a way because if I’m holding on to it, there’s no way I can slice my hand. I found it quite easy to hold and work with. Mind you, using a mandoline does take a bit of practice and Oxo recommends working with a firm potato to get the hang of it. I had zero problems whopping and chopping, so to speak, but it will take some time for many to perfect that waffle cut (mine was miserable).
Personally, I’d rather purchase my waffle fries in the frozen food department as they are so inexpensive. Now, sliced apples aren’t and I loved the fact that I could slice one so rapidly. It was so fast I thought the food holder was stuck, but no, the job was done. I noticed a tiny bit of food waste, but no problem, I ate the rest. Everything I tried was easy and quick. I do have a nice KitchenAid one, but frankly, I like this one better.
Everyone is always yelling about how much space things like the Oxo mandoline slicer take up. Well, once again take a pass if that is of utmost concern. The Oxo goes back into the box quite nicely and can be stored elsewhere. It’s not exactly something I’d put on the counter anyway so it matters little to me. I have purchased an Oxo for my daughter-in-law and she had zero complaints about either the performance or the storage issue. It didn’t end up on her lawn sale so that says something.
For me, I would highly recommend the Oxo Good Grips Chef’s Mandoline Slicer for anyone who is putting up a harvest. Dry those apples, prep those cukes for pickles, and whop and chop for the freezer. It’s coming up time to do just that and I’ll put this mandoline to work. Pricey? Yes, but certainly a kitchen tool that many will get a lot of use out of. I’m getting better at making those slices look perfect (it takes practice), but I can eat the rest and / or toss them in a salad.
