Ah, thanks. I obviously didn't think to do that.
In that case, I've found the Professional Model 3839 for $135 with
free shipping here:
http://www.acitydiscount.com/NEW-Professional-Mandoline-with-Guard.0.22095.1.1.htm

Is that a good deal?

We've been using our cheap plastic V Slicer quite a bit now, and it's
starting to crack and lose its edge.

Is the Bron still overpriced at $135? Are there any other
attachments/accessories that are necessary, and that will jack up the
price?
 
Not required but you might want to get the other widths of julienne
cutters. I don't see them at that site though...

There's some Asian device that is said to be just as good as the Bron,
but much less expensive. Can't remember the name of it - check out an
Asian market.

Benriner. Made of plastic instead of metal, but definitely worth a look
(at about $40) before shelling out $135.

If you actually try to buy it, you will see that the replacement blades
are $52, and the actual mandolin is $155 (still not a bad price, but
probably not great)

Just watch for any parts made with "chrome", which is a Chinese word for
"instant rust upon first washing".

Not a problem with Benriner, a quality Japanese slicer with an
excellent resharpenable blade. The only thing that might be an issue
to some is the max 3/8" max slice thickness. If you ever want a half
inch slice, you're SOL with a Bennie.
