I've just bought a food dehydrator, so having uniformly sliced produce is suddenly quite important. I chose the Zyliss mandoline as it looked good enough quality for my needs. The 1st time I used it, the fold out leg bent the plastic that supports it, & broke it completely on the 2nd time of use. I also found that the slicing runway is not sufficiently rigid at its pointed end; if you need to push down to slice harder products, it causes the runway to flex, giving uneven slices. The dial to change slicing thickness also moves while slicing, again causing uneveness. Sorry, it's going back.

Thanks for your feedback. We're sorry the support leg broke on the mandoline, and we'll contact you to put this right. Mandolines do the work for you so we recommend not using too much pressure.
