best 'cheap' mandoline slicer?

looking for a reasonably priced (willing to pay around $30-35) mandoline slicer to use for vegetables? I live alone and only cook in relatively small quantities, I'm wanting to use this for a faster, easier way to get thinly sliced veggies. thanks!

will add my voice to the OXO, but I do use a "kevlar" glove because I'm a klutz with them

Speaking as one who has cut off the tip of her thumb using a mandoline (Oxo, but entirely my fault, not Oxo's), might I also suggest that when you buy your mandoline, you also get a cut-reisistant glove or gloves? After the thumb incident, I never use a mandoline without those gloves on! The blades on mandolines are super sharp, require very careful handling. I know of what I speak...

Excellent point - I also left a snack sized chunk of finger on my mandoline the first time I used it (trying to be cool like the TV chefs - slicing bare handed with no guard - don't do that) if you order your mandoline from Amazon, throw a pait of kevlar gloves in your basket. Here is what I have:

haha thank you! (and thank you aargersi for the link). have been reading horror stories on amazon reviews as well...thinking a glove would be a good addition. :)
