The Review

Let’s start with a video unboxing and then move on:


The mandoline comes packaged well with bubble wrap for protection. This is a mandoline and a storage box, all the accessories are shipped in the box.

Once you get everything unpacked you’ll find a bag with three blades in it, safety food guide, clear box, peeler and the mandoline itself.



They do include a free bonus peeler but it’s really cheaply made, the whole handle crushes when you squeeze it. The safety guide or food holder as they call it isn’t the best as the metal prongs stick out farther than they need to and once you get so far down on the food as you’re cutting the prongs scrape the plastic mandoline and scratch it and scrap pieces off into your food. Not good at all.

There are four blades included, three on the side and one already installed for you. You’ll get a two grating blades, big and small, a flat blade and a julienne blade. The blades are very hard to get off and on to switch them, I’ll be honest, I was afraid I was going to cut myself while trying to switch the blades out. It’s just too difficult to switch them out and not safe at all.

The main part, of the actual mandoline isn’t the best quality at all. There are extra pieces of plastic hanging off of it in various places, it just looks really unfinished and it feels flimsy overall.

You’re supposed to be able to adjust the thickness of your cut with a dial or wheel on the top near the handle but it’s virtually impossible to move at all. It just won’t move at all with one finger or two or however I try to turn it. When it first arrived it moved slightly, very hard to turn, but after using it only twice it won’t turn anymore at all. I only used it to get some potatoes and then some carrots, and there’s nothing it, it’s clean but yet the dial will no turn. If you can’t turn the dial then you can’t adjust the thickness which means you basically can’t use the mandoline anymore unless you get it stuck on a thickness you always want to use… So it worked twice for me and now I can’t use it anymore. The deck or surface has adjustment lines on it so you can gauge the thickness of the cuts when adjusting it but they really don’t line up with anything at all so they’re useless.

This is one of those products that I wanted to like and was kind of excited about but it was just a letdown really.

The quality is bad, there’s extra pieces of plastic hanging off it, and it just feels cheaply made and flimsy.

The blades are very hard to change to the point where it’s safety issue.

The adjustment dial was very hard to turn when it first arrived, and now it’s impossible to turn at all, it’s stuck, frozen where it is. It’s clean, there’s nothing in it to stop it from moving, it just won’t move anymore, so the mandoline is rather useless at this point.

I’m sorry, overall the Brieftons Mandoline is just a bad product really. Bad design and bad quality controls make it something I would never want in my kitchen or anyone else’s either.

As of now it’s going in the garbage, none of it is worth salvaging. My advice, spend a little extra money and get a decent metal mandoline if you’re serious about getting one.
