What experts liked
Stainless steel blades and a professional-looking design.
- BestReviews
The setup is very simple: there’s the regular blade on one side, which allows you to get a precise, consistent cut.

The brand that popularized Japanese-style diagonal mandolines, this razor-sharp tool can slice through anything that’s thrown its way.

On the positive side, this is one of the few slicers with a blade that can be removed and sharpened, so it's possible to get it even sharper if you know your way around a whetstone, or are willing to take it to a good professional sharpener.
- Serious Eats
Inexpensive and lightweight, this small, basic mandoline has a narrow slicing surface and easily slices tomatoes for a salad garnish or a BLT sandwich.
- Good Housekeeping

It also features a safety guard to hold smaller pieces firmly in place during the slicing process in order to protect your fingers against accidental cuts.
- Savant Magazine
What experts didn't like
Flimsy body.
- BestReviews
The other primary complaint is a lack of instructions in English.

It's worth noting, though, that the Benriner has no measurement markings on it, meaning that while you can set it to any thickness you want, there's no easy way to know exactly what thickness you've chosen unless you break out a ruler to double check.
- Serious Eats
Tomato slices had torn edges and were not uniform in our tests.
- Good Housekeeping

While it is the best for adjusting blade size (a screw allows you to choose any size you like), and it is comfortable to hold, the bridge is susceptible to kickback as you use it.
