So how do you chop up cabbage for slaw? I like fresh made much better than the dry pre-chopped stuff in a bag. I found the antique pictured and after refurbishing it and trying it out on a cucumber it seemed to be great until one of my fingers instantly became about 1/8" shorter. Just tried a pro model Dalstrong mandolin from Amazon and packed it up for return. Way more work than simply using a knife or grater box. Had cabbage all over the kitchen including the floor and still had to pull a lot out of the pile for further work with a knife. It preformed equally poorly on carrots and celery as well, gave up on it before trying green peppers. Maybe I'll order a cut resistant glove and give the antique another chance.
