Any members have an inexpensive Mandoline Slicer they'd recommend?
Here's just two from the myriad of offerings:
AMZ #1 is the Mueller Austria V-Pro 5 Blade @ $30 link

AMX #9 is the HomeNative Adjustable Mandoline Slicer 5 Blade @$15.39 Lightning Deal link
(Mueller knockoff ?)

I thinking $40 tops for light, home use.

We have a simple inexpensive generic one from BB&B similar to MikeF's OXO just without the handle .
1/2 the time I just reach for a knife and a cutting board and for a large quantity pull out the food processor if that will work for the job. It actually slices pretty good the things that fit.

Two Act Play: Life with a Mandoline, or Be Careful with the Death Machine

Wife: Be careful with that thing, you should not use if for potatoes.
Me: It's OK. I will be careful.
[Wife leaves. I slice potato and slice off a piece of thumb. In trying to extricate myself I manage to slice other thumb. Now I have two thumbs bleeding while hanging over the sink. Wife returns.]

........

[At Urgent Care]

Doctor Christine: Its nothing, just two nasty slices missing. I bet you were using a mandoline? What is it with men and mandolines?
Me: [shrug]
Doctor Christine: You will be fine, just don't use your thumbs for a week.

I'd sort of like to get one so as to make waffle french fries (fewer calories) and waffle apple slices.

Nix on waffle thumb slices.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Make sure you pick up a pair of cut resistant safety gloves to go with that mandoline.

Get the one with a V blade. They slice better and don't crush your food like the single slant blade.

I'd bet that if you looked around in thrift shops or yard sales or those types of places you'd find a large selection of them for free. Mandoline slicers are tops amongst those kitchen gadgets bought frequently then abandoned soon afterwards.

And the dried blood cleans off the stainless blades pretty easily.

I have the first model you link to. It does a great job removing finger tips. Ask me how I know sad smiley

I like it and use from time to time. My family won't go near it, nor will they eat anything I prepare with it, recalling my accident.

We tried the cheap ones and eventually bought a good one. There is a round handle/gripper thing that holds the food and keeps your hands away from the razor sharp blades.

Life is too short for cheap tools.

I don't recall the brand, but I can look it up if you care.

I have this one. Ceramic blade with 4 thickness settings. I like it for onions and cucumbers. I have not tried potatoes or tomatoes but the blade is very sharp. I do have a kevlar glove (now) and a regrown tip of my finger.

I have a brand new one still in the box that my sister bought for me a few years ago.

I've heard plenty of horror stories about those fiendish devices!
