I'm sick of the cheap japanese mandolins. Probably going to do at least 6 parties a week of 150+ with julienned carrots on most of the salads next spring. What is a beast of a mandolin to invest in? Two I'm looking at right now is the Matfer Bourgeat 215000 and the Bron Coucke 215030. The matfer Bourgeat 215000 doesn't seem to have many reviews and the blades for juliennes being detachable have me a little worried that they'll behave similarly to japanese mandolins. The Bron Coucke has had some negative reviews for blade sharpness and not being durable enough for high volume. I guess another question is if there is a power version that can make nice juliennes?
