Mandolines: Ratings of Sources

Michael Sullivan, Oct. 31, 2017

Wirecutter spent more than 30 hours researching a number of popular spiralizers, putting several to the test in a head-to-head comparison. Their criteria were spiralizers that don't take up too much space, are easy to use, and consistently produce evenly-cut, sturdy noodles. Elsewhere on this site, mandoline slicers are reviewed.

Editors of Cook's Illustrated, May 2016

Experts at Cook's Illustrated test six countertop spiralizers, along with a KitchenAid mixer spiralizing attachment. The best models are chosen based on their ability to work with fruits and vegetables in various sizes and densities, the sturdiness of the unit during use, and the amount of waste produced. Elsewhere on this site, mandoline slicers are reviewed.

Sarah Karnasiewicz tests seven spiralizers on a variety of foods. Each is evaluated on ease of use, ease of cleaning and storage, sharpness and variety of blades, and performance – including consistency and smooth cutting action. The overall sturdiness and size of each spiralizer is also taken into account. One overall winner is chosen as well as a compact budget pick.

Editors at Tasting Table evaluate "an array of slicers at various price points," testing each mandoline slicer's performance using different blades to slice various foods.

The Good Housekeeping Institute Kitchen Appliances and Technology Lab put 10 mandolines and slicers to the test by slicing hundreds of pounds of produce. Ratings are awarded based on safety, ease of use, cutting options, and other considerations.

Lindsay D. Mattison, Feb. 28, 2018

Daniel Gritzer, Not Dated

Daniel Gritzer "ordered every mandoline-style slicer sold through Amazon for $50 or less," as well as one that costs slightly more. His results factor in cutting ability, mechanical function, ease of use and safety. He chooses three winners, all of which have safety settings that keep the blades locked in position while in storage.

Contributors to Amazon, As of March 2018

Thousands of mandolines, slicers and spiralizers are available at Amazon, and quite a few get hundreds or even thousands of reviews. Mandolines also tend to get very good ratings overall. This is the best resource for how a mandoline or slicer performs over time, and in real-world use as a prep tool.
