Hi everyone. Been looking at v-slicers/mandolines for a few days and maybe interested in getting something. I would like to start out with a lower end unit (no $150 SS Unit) to see how i like it and to see how usefull they are. Don't want something that just sits in the basement and i never use. I've been trying to look at the difference between a madoline and a v-slicer and it looks like the mandoline will just give you must finder adjustments on cut depth and maybe you can't get the ultra thin slices for potato chips on a v-slicer that you could get with a mandoline. Am i correct?
Ive been looking at this unit:
Amazon.com: Swissmar Borner V-Slicer Plus: Home & Garden
rates pretty high.
Its hard to find a descent price mandoline that rates high. Ive been pretty happy with most of my oxo stuff but the oxo mandoline doesn't rate very high on amazon:
Amazon.com: OXO Good Grips Mandoline Slicer: Home & Garden
What do you guys think. I think i'm going to go with the swissmar v-slicer but trying to decide if there is any reason i should reconsider.
