If you are looking for a mandoline slicer that can do it all, this is the set for you! The Fullstar slicer comes with 6 sharp blades--3mm mandoline, 5mm mandoline, julienne, ribbon cut, grater, and spiral cut--so you can slice, shred, and spiralize to your heart's content. The spiral cut blade is a real bonus, saving valuable cabinet space by having two handy tools in one. An easy thumb dial controls the thickness.
All the stainless steel blades are extra sharp, which is great for prep but can be a bit of a safety hazard, especially if you're new to using a mandoline. That's why we love the fact that this product not only comes equipped with a finger guard, but includes a safety glove for added protection.
Unlike other models, the Fullstar mandoline comes with a handy catch tray with non-slip base so you don't need to try and balance the tool over a bowl or cutting board as you prep. An added convenience is the included blade box that makes storing and organizing the assortment of blades a breeze.
When it's time for clean up it couldn't be simpler--the product can be fully disassembled and is dishwasher safe, though we recommend hand washing the blades to prevent rusting or dullness.
With 5 interchangeable blades for slicing, julienne, and and unlimited thickness settings, the sky's the limit for meal prep with the Mueller mandoline. We particularly love the knob-controlled, fully adjustable dial that makes it super easy to adjust thickness settings so you get a perfect cut every time.
While this option doesn't have a spiralizer blade or catch tray, what really sets it apart is its quality materials. The German engineered ultra-sharp 420-grade hardened surgical stainless steel blades and ABS plastic base are built to last, and for added peace of mind, Mueller offers a customer care promise to replace or refund your purchase.
The board folds flat when not in use, and a handy box safety stores the blades. As a safety glove is not included, we would recommend purchasing one separately as this baby is sharp!
The Prep Naturals mandoline slicer comes with 3 interchangeable blades for cutting, grating, and julienne slicing. While not as many option as our top picks, it still equipped with the basics, so unless you're looking to add a wavy design to your cuts, this option is still very useful. Additionally, a built-in switch allows you to easily choose the thickness of cuts between 3 different sizes for added versatility.
We love that this set comes with an adjustable spiralizer that also can make cuts with 3 different thicknesses to make healthy and delicious zoodles, toppings for a summer salad, or oven roasted veggies.
Equipped with a large 1.5L tray, you can rest assure your food won't end up on a mess on the counter. A built-in finger guard and protective glove also helps ensure what is ending up in your catch tray is just your food!
Clean up is a cinch thanks to being top-rack dishwasher safe and a bonus cleaning brush to easily and safely remove any stuck bits.
The HomeNative set comes with 5 interchangeable blades for slicing, julienne, and 3 grating options. The multiple grating options is especially useful if you plan to frequently grate veggies for baking or cheese for a variety of dishes and most sets usually only come with one grating blade. An easy to use dial knob can adjust the thickness in a multitude of ranges for more customizable control.
Similar to most of our other picks, we love the convenient catch tray that has a non-slip base to keep the slicer and your meal prep in place! The set also comes with a cut-resistant safety glove for your added protection, which we can't stress the importance of using enough.
We love that this set is top-rack dishwasher safe, making clean up simple, but again, we recommend washing the blades by hand.
When in the market for a mandoline, at first glance most options will look similar, but there are a number of small differences to pay attention to when choosing the best product for you!
The very simplest mandolines are set for just one thickness, which can be limiting. Consider how much control you want to have over the thickness cut, and how much variety you will need. For those that adjust, some options will have fixed ranges, will others will have a more customizable range. If you do purchase a mandoline that you can manually adjust, ensuring that your desired setting can lock into place is important for uniform cuts.
More is not always better when it comes to the number of blades included. Consider your personal use case and what types of foods and cuts you will want to make.
Cleaning the sharp blades of your mandoline can be tricky. While many products are advertised as dishwasher safe, we recommend washing the plastic-only pieces on the top rack if desired. Like any knife, hand washing the sharp blades will ensure its product life, preventing rusting or dulling.
To get easy, accurate cuts, mandolin blades are SHARP. Many models include a finger guard, as well as providing a safety glove. Whether coming with your set or not, we always recommend cutting with a glove on--it could potentially save you a pricey trip to the ER.
For mandolines, there are often multiple parts and blades that come as part of the set. Consider how and where you plan to store your mandoline. Many of the sets we reviewed store the blades inside the catch tray or other organizer for added convenience.
