Sturdy, well built
October 18, 2012
I have had no difficulties inserting blades or adjusting the machine. I like the handle because it allows me to really bear down when I push the vegetable holder down the slide. I wore a protective glove but did not need it. This machine is sturdily built out of thick plastic which does not flex or warp during use.
I bought another brand at the same time for comparison---and sent the other one back. The difference in quality was evident.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Accuracy, Quality, Time-saver, Easy to Clean, Easy to Store, Size, Design, Weight
Cons: blade thickness dial numbers hard to read.

Very hard to remove and insert blades
September 7, 2012
This mandoline sliced, diced, and julienned everything beautifully. It was very easy to figure out how to use the different blades and set the height. Inserting and removing the blades was another story. I read the book, watched the video, and still had a huge problem. The v-slicer was the worst to insert. The plastic frame seemed to be slightly too small to insert the blade easily. I had my husband try it, as well as the salesperson at William Sonoma. Neither one of them was able to remove the blades or insert them. I was able to do it eventually, but it took a long time, and more effort than it was worth. Maybe a metal frame would be better. It's a shame because once the blades were in it worked better than any mandoline I've ever used. Unfortunately I had to return it.
Pros: Easy to Use, Accuracy, Time-saver, Easy to Clean, Versatile
Cons: blades are extremely hard to insert and remove

The blades are tight for a reason and will loosen
I believe the blades start out very very tight because the construction is plastic. Over time the whole thing loosens up and the blades are easier to slide out. I just ran them under hot water for a while to expand the material and they slid out pretty easily.
