OXO Good Grips Adjustable Handheld Mandoline Slicer
This super-affordable, no-frills model is small and flat enough to fit in a drawer, has three thickness settings, and was sharp enough to cut tender tomatoes without turning them into mush.

Urban Trend Mistral Mandoline Slicer
Is speed your thing? Then this is the gadget for you. The double-sided blade cuts in both directions, and the sturdy base keeps it stable so you can focus on the food.

PL8 Professional Mandoline
If we're being honest, this souped-up model won us over with its awesome waffle-cutting blade. (Hello, waffle fries!) When you're not frying potatoes, you can choose from four thickness options and two julienne blades.

Benriner Mandoline Slicer
Serious home cooks and chefs are fans of this mandoline, which cuts wafer-thin slices with ease. But the instructions are minimal and the blades aren't integrated and have to be manually switched out, so this one isn't for beginners.

Food holders and finger guards are great, but if you want extra protection, invest in a cut-resistant glove. We like the OXO Good Grips Cut Resistant Glove, which comes in three sizes, is machine-washable, and works for righties and lefties.
