What experts liked
The box-style model of the 7-piece Swissmar Börner is great for storing the slicer and its attachments, but it has a major design flaw.

It produces even slices, offers great slicing action, comes with blades for making baton (french fry) and julienne (matchstick) cuts, and has a relatively simple-to-use hand guard that keeps hands away from sharp blades.

The V-Power comes with a sturdy hand guard that spikes the food, and slowly releases it using a plunger.

The best feature on this mandoline is the way you can adjust the size of the slice that you’re creating.
- Appliances Reviewed
The blades being very sharp, you can use it to slice just about anything – including soft veggies like tomatoes!
- Cut Sliced Diced
The V-7000 also comes with a patented thickness adjusting button so that you can easily choose different levels of thickness regardless of the type of blades you are using.
- Expert Product Reviewer
Compared to other models it has an exceptionally good hand guard that fully protects your fingers.

What experts didn't like
This mandoline doesn’t have a hand-held grip or retractable feet, so the storage box is also used as the mandoline’s base while you slice.

The tool is pretty bulky, though, and if you have limited space you might find storage a chore.

Some Amazon reviewers complain that they do not like the runway and blade design, as they feel like the insert doesn’t snap easily into place.

Although the price point on this mandoline is a little higher than other compact counter models that fit into a drawer, the extra quality can immediately be seen.
- Appliances Reviewed
This model does not do crinkle or waffle cuts, but the 3 inserts that are included will let you julienne, shred, cube, and cut basic French fries.

From The Manufacturer

Add creativity and style to your meal with the Swissmar Börner V Power mandoline. It includes three inserts for ten different cuts: a 7mm blade, 3-1/2mm blade, and a thick/thin insert for meat, allowing the V Power to julienne, shred, cube, and create French fries. A patented push-button adjustment allows you to change the size or thickness of the cut without removing the insert. The blades are made from surgical-grade stainless steel and they cut from both angles. The plane has a safety position covering the V-blade when not in use. The frame is made from tough ABS plastic with slip-resistant rubber feet. An ambidextrous food safety holder requires little pressure and holds the food in place with prongs to guard your hands from the blades. The set also includes an insert holder that doubles as a drying rack. Instruction manual included. With over 50 years of experience and knowledge, the maker of the Original V-Slicer has re-confirmed their position as the leader in the mandoline category. German made Börner V-Slicers are world renowned for their durability, precision, quality and safety. These attributes remain true with the new and innovative VPower V-Slicer that provides 10 different cuts. It features a patented push button that allows size and thickness adjustment without removing the insert. Börner’s patented safety setting provides worry-free storage that is both convenient and compact.
