Used it to slice paper thin parmigiano reggiano on salads - perfect
Perfect cheese slicer
I have several mandolins acquired over the years but I now use this one most. It's handy and sharp and does the job for any small, firm fruits or vegetables. The pusher, as noted, isn't the greatest, but I use a protective glove and either toss the last bit or use the pusher, which does usually work fine with a short piece. ANY mandolin can be dangerous if you're not careful! I've used them for years and haven't cut myself. Yet! Buy a glove and use it!
Granted, it could be wider, but it does what it does well. I would be interested in a wider handheld with ceramic blade, but I'd still use this one for what I use it for now, mostly slicing and julienning (great feature to have both in one unit!) vegetables (carrots, radishes, cucumbers, zucchini, small peppers). And the price is right!
I've never used one of these before and have just relied on a sharp knife for slicing tomatoes, onions, etc., but now that I've used this, slicing is so easy! It's pretty easy to use - but very sharp, so just be super careful - and cleaning it is really easy too. I also like that it's pretty compact for storage. I would highly recommend!
Perfect for slicing vegetables for my daily salad.
