I don't use it for cabbage, either. I tried, but the cabbage layers wouldn't stay together. The glove would be good for that. I also put shredded red onion and carrots in my cole slaw, so I use the mandolin for them, since I already have it out.

My sweet SousChef just finished making slaw, also with onion and carrot. He loves the mandolin for doing it.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

I have a v-slicer but really dislike it. I'm going to someday replace it with a straight blade. I guess since my mom used a straight blade and she taught me how to use it, the v-blade just seems more difficult to use. Also the plastic surfaces and angle of the set just don't seem right to me. I usually end up putting the end up on something else to get a better angle to push.

As the main souschef in this house, I highly recommend this mandolin. It is fantastic, but a word of caution. I once had to go to Urgent Care to get 2 fingers sewed up using a poor plastic imitation of this one.
