I've had a cheap plastic one from a Chinese grocery store that has lasted me
6 yrs in making Welsh chips. The drawback is the pronged holder that
prevents you from cutting yourself. You waste about 1/2" of veggy. But that
isn't a bad idea of adding a mandolin to the feast tools.

I've got an Oneida that I got at Target for about $30 that has
features similar to the Matfer? that we had in the kitchen of the
catering company I used to work for.  I really like the screw
adjustment for cutting thickness and the removable blades for
vertical slicing at the same time.  It seems fairly sturdy.

I haven't used it in a feast yet.  I'll probably be bringing it to
help with prep at Black Oak Lodge but that's in a month.
