im very dissapointed with this. it arrived cracked on the face plate, and defective from the manufacturer to boot. yes it is sharp and yes, it does have 3 settings...it shaves, shaves thinner and the 3rd is"wow, this only has one side!".but it is in absolutly no way useful for normal prep work.i needed something that would give me normal uniform slices and THIS IS NOT IT.
I was looking for a mandolin slicer without spending to much. This is perfect! Easy to use and very sharp blade. Dishwasher safe is a plus as well.
So glad I got this mandoline slicer. It makes summer salads a breeze to put together. I wish I had purchased one sooner. The thickness settings are really helpful too.
