Do you suppose that the second one will do the potato ribbons and onion strings?
It appears the link you posted leading to GourmetSleuth would make potato ribbons with the flat blade (I think it's $98?) I would NEVER consider the motorized one unless, of course, I was in "the business". The one we used, at the restaurant, was the other one at GourmetSleuth - it did a great job and made salads look great with a topping of carrots that were shredded this way.
