I had put off buying a mandoline for a long time because I have heard some many horror stories of people cutting themselves while using one and I am decent with a chef knife. But when I saw this in the Aldi Finds Aisle for just ten bucks I figured I would try it out since it comes with a hand guard that holds the vegetable so your fingers don’t have to get close to the blade. Picking it up it seems solid and well made, it is plastic but has a nice feel to it, similar to OXO brand products.
Aldi Adjustable Mandoline Initial Impressions
I picked it up this afternoon and tried it out for dinner by slicing some shallots on the thinnest setting. It worked like a charm using the hand guard to hold the shallot. I had a long skinny shallot so I did cut it in half to shorten it so the hand guard could hold on easier. It produced nice thin slices of shallot that were much more consistent than if I had done them with a knife.
Based off my initial impression I think this is a good buy. Similar non-brand name slicers are selling for about $15 on Amazon and an OXO brand mandoline that looks like it has similar features sells for about $18 at the time of writing. I’ll put a link below for the OXO that should show the current price for you.
If I start using this a lot I will probably get a cut resistant glove if I find the handguard isn’t convenient to use all the time.
Update December 2022: I used this a lot over the summer, mostly cutting cucumbers and onions. It has held up well and is still sharp. The three settings work well for most of my slicing needs. The version that is available in December has a new hand guard that looks like it would be more convenient than the one I bought. I haven’t ran it through the dishwasher much which may have helped keep it sharp.

Aldi Mandoline Reviews
Worked the first few times then cracked
I really enjoyed it at first and then the white piece that you slice over cracked in a few of the grooves. Will call the toll free number to see what they will do.
Gonna speed things up in the kitchen
Just got it and tried it out once. Seems well made and sharp. Sliced evenly and thin.
