My favorite is one made by Oxo. Paid...70 bucks for it I think?

What I like most about it is I don't have to change into 9 different blades. All you have to do is turn a knob. There's one blade you can swap out, but in general? Good stuff.

How fat's your wallet? It would probably be hard to beat this Shun mandoline. And only $379.95!

It's this one, UB Leifheit Vario Vegetable Slicer (Germany), Model 23201 (usahardware.com)

I bought it in a hardware store about 20 years ago, before I knew what a "mandoline" was. Probably paid less than $10 for it.

This works great, but doesn't get paper thin or cut anything other than slices.

De buyer

De buyer is the best for me. They made 3 standards.
Mandoline swing, itís the simple one
Mandoline classic, itís the best deal for me because you can add a spiral slicer and itís great for the decoration and also an extra long pusher.
Mandoline V, for professional is perfect for long hour of use. The thickness is precise and easy to adjust. And you can add an accessory: the extra long pusher.

I have the Bron and love it. I have had a plastic base mandolin before and didn't like the "give" it had when cutting some things.
