De Buyer La Mandoline V Professionnelle
Professional mandoline slicer
If you want to make crinkle and waffle cuts in addition to slicing and julienne, this versatility sets the stainless-steel De Buyer La Mandoline V Professionnelle apart from the pack. Reviewers say well built, safe and easy to use, and the food pusher/hand guard is well designed. Unlike cheaper mandolines, the De Buyer La Mandoline V Professionnelle also has a stand, making it easier to use. The De Buyer La Mandoline V Professionnelle turns out paper-thin slices, julienne, crinkle and waffle cuts with minimal effort. Not only is this model dishwasher-safe, it comes with an unusual extra: an instructional DVD. This mandoline does, however, cost four times as much as the Benriner, and it weighs 9 pounds.
