I bought this to replace a cheaper moel I have had for years. This model i so much easier to change cutters and size it made everything simpler. I should have bought a better one first.

I have used this several times now. Hash browns and French fries were fast and easy. The blades are very sharp so cutting doesn't take a lot of effort. I like the way the blades store right in the unit and it folds into an easy to store shape. I wish it had a better way to measure and adjust the thickness of cut. Sliding the ramp thingy up and down seems a bit haphazard for the money. It is easy to use except for that and I like it a lot

This mandoline is well made and makes food prep quite easy. My only quibble is that when I tried to cut leaf vegetables (namely cabbage) and small items (namely carrots) it was a little difficult to hold the item steady in the receptacle, and required a little practice.

Imprecise thickness adjustment.
Not as sharp as I expected it to be.
Would not recommend it as a quality product for daily use.
