I have a food questions for everyone. My family loves egg rolls. The only thing I do not like about them is the time it takes to julienne the carrots and celery properly to get the best texture in the egg roll. I have been using a slicer like this to do my julienne:

It actually works great, but it is reallllly time consuming.
I would LOVE to get a mandoline that is capable of julienne-ing carrots. I have tried a couple, but with no luck. I got a gift card for Christmas and thought I would try this one because I had a good impression of OXO (Ihadn't read any reviews at the time):
Amazon.com: Oxo Good Grips Mandoline Slicer: Home & Garden
It was awful. I could not julienne a carrot with that product if my life depended on it, it just was not nearly sharp enough. I understand I may have to invest more $ than I did this last time, but I would prefer to look for something under $200. I will absolutely use it for regular slicing tasks as well, but I am not willing to invest my money in something that cannot julienne carrots!! Does anyone have a recommendation for a mandoline that can handle this task?
