1. Swissmar Borner V-1001 V-Slicer Plus Mandoline
We have had a hard time choosing our favorite mandoline slicer so we decided to choose two. The first one is the Swissmar Borner V-1001. It has the classic look and design you would expect from such a unit, with an ABS plastic frame and a special holder that allows you to slice any type of food you want without endangering yourself. It uses surgical grade stainless steel for the 3 different types of blades it comes with and it is as sharp and precise as any scalpel. We also love the fact that it was designed to be used by both left handed and right handed users.
2. Paderno World Cuisine A4982799 Tri-Blade Vegetable Slicer
Our second most favorite product is the Paderno spiral mandolin slicers. It uses a fairly innovative spiraling design that allows you to turn a handle to push the vegetables or cheese closer to the cutting edge as you are slicing it. It takes a little bit getting used to but the system itself is much easier to use and a lot safer. The cutting knifes are extremely sharp but your fingers never get close to them and the food is firmly held in place by the prongs on the gripping end. What is even more impressive is the fact that the Paderno spiral mandoline slicer has earned a 4.4 star rating on Amazon from over 2,600 users.
3. Benriner Japanese Mandoline Slicer
When it comes to finding the perfect metal and sharpness, there is no better product than a Japanese one, and that is why the Benriner Japanese Mandoline Slicer is our second most favorite product. It uses a traditional diagonal blade system and a safety grip so your fingers never get close to that extra sharp blade. However, the thing that most drew us to the Beriner is the fact that it is one of the cheapest slicers you could hope to find on the market and it has still earned a 4.3 star rating on Amazon from over 260 users.
4. Swissmar Borner V Power Mandoline, V-7000
In the world of mandoline slicers you would be hard pressed to find a better manufacturer than Swissmar, and that is why we have decided to feature several of their products. It has the same hard ABS plastic frame and 3 surgical quality blades, but with this model you can also choose between 4 different colors of the frame. The V-7000 also comes with a patented thickness adjusting button so that you can easily choose different levels of thickness regardless of the type of blades you are using.
5. Prepworks from Progressive Folding Mandoline Slicer
Of course a mandoline slicer needs to be more than just functional, when you are preparing a meal for a special someone, you need to also make a good impression. That is why we decided to feature the Prepworks HGT-110 on our list of the best mandoline slicers of . It is not quite as sharp as the others, although will hold its own in any kitchen and it even comes with 3 blades with different ends so that you can get a total of 6 different cutting types. But the real piece the resistance is the shape of the Prepworks HGT-110 and color which makes it an impeccable fit for any kitchen.
6. Swissmar Borner V-Prep Mandoline V-5000
The V-5000 is the last Swissmar we are going to review here, but we had to introduce it because it comes with the same high quality grades and ABS plastic body and, this time, for basically the same price, you also get a multi-purpose bowl with lid. We were impressed by it because it is usually quite difficult to find a bowl that a mandoline slicer will work with. So this time you get the perfectly designed bowl to go with the slicer.
7. Norpro Mandoline Slicer Grater with Guard
The Norpro mandoline slicer solves the problem of finding a perfectly fitting bowl in a much simpler way. It was designed to sit at a tilted angle over a cutting board so you can slice away in any shape you want from julienne to a simple grading style. Once you are done you can simply pour the vegetables or the cheese directly into whatever bowl you may need to use straight of the cutting board.
8. OXO Good Grips V-Blade Mandoline Slicer
Another excellent mandoline slicer manufacturer is Oxo and we are going to feature two of their products: the V-Blade and the hand-held. We believe that the V-Blade we have featured here is the safer option because it uses the same type of grip with prongs that many other slicers use. It is also set an angle from the cutting board so you do not need a bowl with it.
9. OXO Good Grips Hand-Held Mandoline Slicer
The Oxo Hand Held mandoline slicer comes with an excellent grip so that you can simply hold it over whatever bowl or pot you need to grade in. You will need to make sure to have a pretty strong grip and you will not be able to grade as many vegetables as you would with a regular unit. Still, there are situations where you just need to slice a little cedar cheese over some pasta, and that is where the Oxo hand held will be of great help.
10. Kitchenaid Classic Mandoline Slicer
The final unit we are going to feature on our top 10 best mandoline slicers of list is the KitchenAid unit. We love the wonderful color choices the Kitchenaid comes with and also the fact that it comes fully equipped with its own bowl. We have chosen the crimson slicer as our favorite, but both the blue and yellow ones would be wonderful alternatives.
