I would like a mandolin and wonder which is best. There was a thread on here on the topic quite some time ago but I can't remember which one was the most highly recommended - was it the V-slicer?

Mandolins.

I remember it being discussed, Kilmroy, but cannot remember.

I tend to think its one of those things that never gets used, but then, when Im trying to thinly slice something I wish I had one!!!!

I shall put it on my list I think.

I've got one which i use when stuff needs to be very thin. It is'nt a V slicer which have had good reviews on earlier posts. Think mine is dangerous, always very careful when using it, making sure i always use the guard and when changing the blades. In the new Lakeland brochure there is one, a Zyliss Smart Guard, with more safety features.Have a look and see what you think.

I have a V Slicer too and it is good.
When the Zyliss one came out I thought it looked very good and more compact - easier to store. Too late by then though!!

I have a "V" slicer and think it's great, sure all these gizmoes are dangerous if you are careless when you use them, used correctly you should not have any problems.

Mandolins - thanks

Thank you all for your replies - like James I'm not sure how much I'd use one but think I'll put it on my Christmas list.

I had one of the old fashioned wooden ones. I bought it in France when I was first setting up my kitchen as a serious cook (around 1974). It was the devil's invention and sliced me as frequently as it did my veg! The modern ones of the V slicer type look much safer and appear t do the job as well as the old fashioned type. As far as it finding a home at the back of the cupboard - leave it out with your knives and it will be in sight so you'll use it.
