Slicers: Borner vs. Benriner

dippedberry | Sep 29, 200601:49 PM     2

I'm shopping around for a mandoline-type slicer and I have pretty much heard such great things about the Super Benriner, the inexpensive Japanese-style slicer, that I had decided to get it. But I just found a deal on the Borner V-Slicer and I'm wondering if it would be as good. The Borner is European with German-steel blades, so I think the blades are set at a different angle than the Japanese slicers. The Borner also comes with one of those veggie holders that you clip onto the veg to prevent your fingers from being sliced; the Super Benriner comes with a finger guard attached to cover the blade.

Unless anybody has a compelling argument why I shouldn't get the Borner (which is a third of the price) I think I will order it since it's a small investment.

Would value your input.
