Bought the De Buyer. Comes with a big round pusher protector as standard. Surprisingly, the place I bought it included the very long protector as well in the price (€130 including delivery from the Spanish online site cocinarencasa - a bargain compared with what I've seen it going at on sites in the US by the time you take the long pusher into account). Amazing tool. If you've never bought a mandoline because you're worried about losing the tips of your fingers, check out this one. If you use either of the pushers, you're unlikely to have an accident. While waiting for it to arrive, I'd been pricing up kevlar and steel mesh gloves but they're absolutely unnecessary. The blades are very easy to change as well. The only quibble I have is that setting the plate needs more care than I'd expected to get it to sit flat. As someone with very small hands and arthritis, the round pusher seems a bit big in the palm as well but not unusable. Other than that, I'm extremely pleased.

I am rather a newbie to the world of mandoline, which we just bought about a month ago... yesterday I learned a painful lesson to use the safety handle before it is too late... (rubbing on my bandaged middle finger which is tempted to stick itself out to the offender...)

I learned that sad mistake with mine last year.

Keep ALL fingers on the food holder and NEVER let any of them stick out.
I use mine now and then, but my powerful K'Aid Pearl metallic Food Processor can also quickly handle slicing veggies in short order.

We have a Benriner ....advertised...it will process any kind of vegetable into thin slices. New double possible blade. Cabbage wil be cut in half and sliced with flat blade only. Made in Japan. Can't read more of the foreign writing.
Works great and very easy to clean. AND has a finger guard. Love it.
