I have a Kuradori Mandolin - I think it is available in the States, there is a patent nbr for US, UK. Probably more pricey than the OXO but I quite like it.

Has a case for the blades and the safety handle also becomes a lemon juicer. Like all mandolins - very sharp... my little finger does not match shape with the rest of my digits, missed the bone but came close!

I also really like the Apple Slicer/Corer by Kuradori - again, very sharp and I think the slices are thinner than other corers, which I like.

Gotcha. So far, I only have arthritis in my knee. Good to know if it wanders to my hands.

LOL sounds like this thread has changed from

"What could we not live without?"

to

"What do we now desperately want" (not need - want).

you are too funny, SPGrass....have to ask.......where does the term sparrow grass originate from? truly `i really want to know........never heard of it before....... obviously it doesn't grow in TX or is that well-known.........definitely not in `oman......or the middle east.......

Try your hardware store.

expatgirl, sparrowgrass is an old name for asparagus. My favorite veggie. I have been using that 'handle' on the web for 20 years now. :) My two acre 'ranch' in the Ozarks is 'Sparrowgrass Hill'. I have a big asparagus bed, plenty of wild plants, and will be planting another row in the spring.
