I had purchased other mandolines and was unimpressed. Thank goodness I found this one! It works really, really well and it stores away nicely. It does discolour, but that doesn't affect the performance at all. Highly recommended!
I have had one of these for over 25 years. It has discoloured with age but still works great. I use it all the time and would love a new shiney one but since the 25 year old one is still slicing dicing and shedding like new can't see a reason to. I believe I paid about the same price for it back then too!
I have bought more expensive mandolines in the past, made of heavy stainless steel. However they were not as sharp as this one and the fruits or vegetable would get stuck half way, making it more dangerous to push down top finish the job. Here the blades are sharper which makes them safer. I have had mine for over 10 years. I would recommend this mandoline over others. I give it 5 stars
