What experts liked
Features super-sharp, on-board blades (straight, wavy, julienne) instead of attachments.
- BestReviews
When it comes to the tool design, it is also second to none. Made of stainless steel and top-quality plastic, the food cutter is durable, wear-resistant, and will serve you for a long time.
- Best Advisor
With a dial design, it is really easy to use and doesn’t have a sharp learning curve like some other tools in the market.
- The Top Pro
As the blades are already installed in this mandolin food slicer it is easier to get the desired thickness of the food by adjusting the knob and switching between blades.
- Food Gear
It is also quite wide as far as its slicing deck goes, which allows food to glide easier when secured with the safety hand guard.
- Savant Magazine
This model gets lots of very high marks for being sturdy and having super sharp blades that make for easy slicing even on harder foods.

What experts didn't like
Blade guard may warp the blade over time.
- BestReviews
You'll need some practice to get the hang of all cutting modes.
- Best Advisor
If there’s bad news it’s that this mandoline is big, about 16 inches long, so it’s going to cost you some storage room.
