Has anyone used the Rosle adjustable slicer before? It appears to be better made than many without the rubber or germ collecting parts. The blade can also be replaced.
Thoughts? If you know of a comparable/better option I am all ears. Thanks for your thoughts and time.
I use one very similar to this... It works well - though I don't use it a ton.
When you get it be very careful - IMHO - it's by far the most dangerous tool in the kitchen.... I have cut myself alot using it.. That said, I think it's very handy to have - make quick work of potatos or other vegs that needs uniform cuts.
I have two. One, an OXO, which I've had for a while now..and another, smaller one--a Pampered Chef mandoline. The one I use more often is the smaller one because it takes up less space..but you really, really have to be extremely careful with any mandoline you purchase--when you get to the end of a veg---or fruit you are slicing, you take great risk at cutting yourself.
Have the Rosle and have had it a year or two, still made in Germany, and it's fantastic. Had one of the plastic ones and they are junk, the Rosle is very well made and easy to use and store. I highly reccommend it. Call me a Euro-snob if you will, but the fact it's one of the few pieces still made in Germany makes it more pleasureable to use for me. Oh, it doesn't come with a guard, so get a cut resistant glove to save your fingers.
My brother gave me a Matfer (French made) almost 20 years ago. It is solid stainless and constructed to be a kitchen heirloom. Ultra accurate julienne blades and razor sharp slicing blade to this day despite countless cleanings in the dishwasher.
