    Lots of them out there. Americas Test Kitchen likes Swissmar- Borner V slicer. I had a Pampered Chef that I gave away to a friend that likes it but it wasn't good for me.

    What are you slicing on?

    Tought Cooks liked the OXO which is what I got. Works well. But get a safety glove for protecting yourself, they are dangerous. I have one made by Tucker.

        This thing looks well built

      I bought the blue one first but it wasn't big enough. then I got the jumbo.

          Yes, I love them both dearly.

        If by mandoline slicer you mean the slicing side of a 4 dollar box grater then yes, I have one. I had one but it wasn't adjustable so...I got another that wasn't adjustable...


          I do everything in my power to avoid using a mandoline, primarily because chunks of my fingers have wound up in too many salads. I have yet to find anything it can do that I can't do as quickly with a sharp knife or my french fry cutter.


            I hear ya Keith. I'm just looking for that consistence. Sometimes my knife skills are a bit like my typing skills.


              Pampered Chef makes two of them. I have had them both and the more expensive one is safer but doesn't work worth a toot. The inexpensive one is great but, dangerous like all mandolin slicers. I have had a couple of dum moments with mine and have paid the price like Keith but there is no substitute for a good mandolin slicer. I have the Pamp Chef inexpensive one. The blade is not replaceable and mine is over a year old and a lot of use and it is time to get another one.


                I can't cut paper thin slices of potato with a knife for potato chips, or red radishes.
                They come in handy when slicing brisket or thin slices of chicken breast for sammiches.


                  I really like the OXO Good Grips Mandoline slicer. It seems to be a little safer then the restaurant quality ones I have nearly taken my fingers off in the past with. If you are really worried about your hands, you can always use a protection glove. I've used one in the past and find it to be a really good investment. Rather spend $15 on a glove, than have trip to the ER!

                    Amazon link? Given my wife's tendency to put a bit too much of herself into her cooking, I might get her a pair to use with our knives.

                Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
