If you are considering the Swissmar Borner slicers for your potato or vegetable cutting, then you probably have seen the V-1001 and the V-4000. But what’s the difference? Why are there two models that look so similar? Which one should you really buy?
The Swissmar V-1001 and the V-4000 are both well loved by its users. These two mandoline slicers are part of Borner’s lengthy product line of slicers.
The main difference between these two slicers is that the V-1001 allows for a 1/16″ cutting blade and NOT a 1/8″ blade. The V-4000 will has the thicker 1/8″ but NOT the 1/16″ blade. Your choice will depend on what you will be using this slicer for.
Swissmar Borner’s V-4000 also has a safety “0″ setting for safer storage of the cutter too. The V-1001 has a the blade tucked away safely in the holder for storage too even though they don’t mention the safety storage feature.
Another thing is that the V-4000 comes with a separate holder for all of the blades. On the V-1001 there is a holder for the mandoline which also compartments for the extra blades in the back.
