V-Slice or Straight blade mandoline

Gold D | Jul 26, 2010 03:45 PM

I'm confused as to which of these would be "better"... I do realize it is somewhat relative to usage. It seems as though the more expensive models have the straight blade but I have read that they are not very good with softer foods. Do they offer other advantages?

Using Oxo as an example, their straight blade lists for $20 more than their V-slicer, while the V-slicer won their mandoline testing.

Anyone have any info on the relative pluses and minuses for the different types?
