    I have a customer who is ordering the mandoline and wants to know if it slices cheese well. I'm sure it slices it, but is it easy/smooth to do? Anyone know? She's definately getting it, but isn't sure if she should get the cheese knife too??

    Spray it with Pam and see how it works first!

    I HATE using it for cheese.

    I don't think it's intended for cheeses, except for the grating blade.

    I don't like it for cheese. It ends up getting stuck or something and you are trying to still sell it while it's tearing up the cheese! good times!

    I don't like the mandoline for cheese either...including grating it....but that's my own personal issues I think!! If she's slicing, I'd definitely reccommend the cheese knife.

    I agree with the cheese knife. I don't even like it for grating cheese. I love it for everything else though.

    Go for the cheese knife - I am not a big fan of the madoline to begin with - I love my forged cutlery instead -

    We have a cheese knife or a DCG for cheese - use the grating blade for grating/shredding things like carrots, zucchini, cabbage, etc.

    I tend to agree with most. If anything, use for grating and make sure that the cheese is cold, like 10 minutes in the freezer and it will grate nicely, other than that, deluxe grater and cheese knife.
    Cheers

    I love it for shredding cheese... and I have the best success with it when the cheese is room temp... no clumping and glides across very smoothly.
