Re: Recommendations on mandolins?
I have an old classic French manoline that I still use but I have to say it freaks me out a bit as it didn't come with a finger guard. It also is a pain to get sharpened.
Kimberley (from Rouxbe) has an Oxo that is pretty nice to use. Also, the great thing about Oxo products is that they are guaranteed to work, which is a total bonus for me.
There are also many Japanese mandolines that are quite popular with chefs. They can be expensive (at least where I have seen them) but they are light-weight and easy to use.
Wow there sure many mandolines available these days. I just did a quick search on Amazon and there were tons. Perhaps you may want to check it out and read some of the reviews there as well. Best of luck!
