I started looking to purchase a mandoline yesterday.
Every search engine brought me to mandolin stuff. I looked it up in Webster's, to be sure I was spelling it correctly, and it wan't in there.
So I drove to the kitchen store to see if they had any at all, just to be sure that the internet was wrong, and there they were.
I returned home and added some slice-and-dice words to my search, and bang, scores of 'em.
$20-$250. Hmmm? Was planning to top out @ c-note.
Let's check out some of the user reviews for the better ones.
This is the one i bought for Christmas, sold to local restaurants.http://www.bron-coucke.com/version_gb/index.php
Wanted one with a stand so one hand is not 100% concentrating on holding the unit upright, needed to be adjustable, completely washable, can be resharpened and a preference for at least two slicing types.
