From the discussions here, the consensus seems to be that the Benriner mandoline is the one to buy. But I'm a little confused about the distinctions in the products offered on Amazon.com. Maybe it's a matter of semantics, but there's a "Benriner Japanese Mandoline Slicer" http://www.amazon.com/Benriner-BN1-Ja...; a "Benriner Vegetable Slicer" http://www.amazon.com/Japanese-Import...; a "Benriner Japanese Mandolin Vegetable Slicer" http://www.amazon.com/Benriner-Japane...; and a "Japanese Mandolin Benriner Fruit Vegetable Slicer #0815" http://www.amazon.com/Japanese-Mandol.... Then there's also the "Benriner Wide-Body Large Slicer" http://www.amazon.com/Benriner-BN3-Wi... Are these different names for the same product (except the wide-body), or are they essentially the same product with different names? Do I want/need the wide-body version or is the standard size okay? Can anyone help me sift through this? Thanks!
BTW, I plan to get a Kevlar glove, too.
