I have a Matfer and really like it. I think you can get them for about $125.00, often with free shipping thrown in. It's easy to use, and easy to clean.

I think that is the one I have too Loprraine. Mine is a dark grey color. It is plastic, but very hard strong plastic. the blade is adjustable and also comes with a julliene blade. The only think I do not like about mine is that there is no stand, so I need to rest it on the blow that I am cutting into. That can be a pain in the butt sometimes.

LOL!

The one I have is similar to this:

Matfer Mandoline 2000-S - $101 to $200 Gift Ideas

It's a godsend when making pickles!

I have one I got at Williams Sonoma a few years ago. It was around $200. It works well, but I need to use it more often! It's got a cutting guard, but sometimes the vegetables don't fit inside the guard.

Gee, I have a really inexpensive one that my husband bought me as a sort of joke gift. I think he paid $20 for it back in 1995.

It's still going strong & slices veggies paper thin at the drop of a hat. I LOVE it - especially for slicing onions for French Onion Soup..

And imagine that - he paid less than $20 for it & it's still going strong over 20 years later.
