When I first got this mandoline, I was as disappointed with the finger guard as many other people. It simply doesn't work. Plus it takes too much muscles and elbow grease to get the job done, because of the awkward ergonomics of angled motion. On the bright side, the blades are all razor sharp. So the slicer itself is still a keeper. I researched a bit on the Internet and saw people use those cut proof gloves. Yes they are awesome and keep you safe. But for the fellow minimalists out there, here's what you need --
As ridiculous as it sounds, this is all you need. Just stab a stainless steel fork onto the top part of whatever you're slicing, have those fork teeth parallel to the blade, and start rolling! (As opposed to positioning on the side of the veggies when using the default finger guard, you want to insert the fork on the top. Say you're slicing a carrot, you would leave the fork into where the leafy part of the plant goes. I should have took a picture to make this easier but oh well...) It's so much easier, faster and safer. Angle the fork smartly and you'll get a metal shield from the natural curve of the fork. And it requires so much less strength. I mean, if a 5'3 110lbs Asian girl can do it, I don't see any reason you can't.
*** Size doesn't always matter ***
Some people mention the size of the mandoline. I haven't found this to be an issue. American vegetables are notoriously large in size. But you can always cut things in half to fit the working area. Especially for veggies like cabbage and onion, they are going to be in slices or strips or ribbons anyway. I've julienned half of a medium sized butternut squash (pictured) without any problem.
*** Mandoline vs spiralizer vs food processor ***
If you want to make things like zucchini noodles, this mandoline is proved to work well. You will get straight noodles instead of curly spaghetti, which could be great depending on your preference. Plus you could do a lot of other stuff with this slicer. Chips, paper thin ribbons, lasagna sheets, you name it. Spiralizers look a little stupid anyway... Food processor is another workhorse in the kitchen. But it doesn't julienne veggies as beautifully as a mandoline or a spiralizer. The match sticks tend to be shorter...than a match stick.
*** Waste ***
Yeah there will be a little chuck that won't go into the blade at the end. It's more wasteful compared to using a knife. But it doesn't bother me that much as I get so much out of the slicer already. Plus you run into the same problem with a food processor as well.
First of all, my benriner mandolin (old version) looks different from my coworkers benriner mandolin (old version). They’re are not of the same color. Mine is the one on the right as seen on the photo. Second, the blade on my mandolin is VERY DULL!! I was kinda expecting it to be sharp because it was my first time using it. Lastly, the blade had already scratches on it so I’m assuming that this is already pre-owned when I clearly bought a brand new one.
I’ve been ripped off. I hope they would still replace my item because this is very unfair.
Only complaint (aside from this inspiring mild fear in me) is that you need to be careful about drying the blades off after you rinse it clean. It will rust in like....30 minutes. DONT AIR DRY, unless you live in a fantasy warm land of warmth.
TL;DR: It inspires a little fear for my finger, dry it off after use or risk a little rust.
Buy the white one instead, that one is manufactured to a similar level of tolerances as the old ones; the current green ones are noticibly off, and function poorly. The food ramp does not line up with the blade, the blade is glued in, and the blade is not seated correctly, allowing food to accumulate under the blade.
Perhaps Benriner sold the equipment used to make the green mando, and someone else is building them now? The QA is just not the same.
