This mandoline has a bunch of different attachments that enables it to be very versatile and have many different uses; however, I have found it sort of inconvenient and difficult to use on a regular basis. I cut up vegetables on a daily basis and thought that a mandoline would assist me in cutting my vegetables more evenly. However, it is sort of a hassle to dig out the mandoline and select a blade to use. The blades are not the best and it is somewhat difficult to slice my vegetables especially when it gets to the end pieces. I don't think it's the safest mini appliance to have. I would prefer to have a mandoline that will slice things better than one with different attachments. I also tried to use it to slice a whole block of cheese and again it did not slice it very well nor did it slice it evenly. Although the mandoline was very affordable, it was not very good quality. It was not very easy to assemble and it is somewhat difficult to clean because of the blades that get in the way. It is definitely not for expert cooks.
