I just ordered the Bron that's on sale. It seems to be a good deal. I hope that I'll like it. I also ordered the butcher's glove to save my fingers.

I now have my Bron. Does anyone know of a video demonstrating this particular mandoline? I'd like to see it used, before I give it a try.

Uncle Bob,
It really is an amazing tool!!!!
I think you'll enjoy using it. I've just started, but am getting comfortable with it's use. However, I know it is very sharp, so I use the guard and a butcher's glove.

Thanks for the report Miss Essie! Just don't get to comfortable with it. Take your time, go slow and "keep your eye on the ball"

Enjoy!

I love my Bron, Essie. I have a Kevlar glove that I wear when I use it. I guess that's the same as a butcher's glove. You will grow to love and appreciate your mandoline.

Essiebunny and Katie E,
I was at a local appliances store and I don't know how or why, they had a Bron.
I asked the sales lady for a price since it seemed that was there since the beginning of time (broken box, no manual), she said "It is yours for $100".
So, right now I am also a proud owner of ones of these beauties. I coveted this for years -never had the courage to pay retail-, but she made me an offer I couldn't refuse.
I feeling like slicing carrots right now LOL

Potatoes Dauphinois will now be no trouble at all! I also use it a lot in the summer for cucumbers, sour cream (vinegar, sugar, s&P) - I grew up on this stuff and I used to cry if my mother didn't slice the cukes thin enough .

Homemade potato chips!!!!! Yep, and carrots...don't forget the waffle fries too!

Congratulations on you great buy!
You will really enjoy using it. You sliced foods will look so "professional".
Please do be very careful when using it.
You will find excellent directions when you do a google search for mandolins.
