Holder did not hold the potato I was slicing because it has no spikes, merely small plastic pyramid shapes. My hand slipped when the potato slipped and I cut off my fingertip. Amazon reviews report a high rate of injuries with this product. There are also many comments about the inadequacy of the holder. Some even say they know the product is dangerous, but they use it carefully. A few even say they use it without the hoder, that they know it is dangerous, but continue because it cuts well and they are being careful. Acidents can happen.

I hope that you check Amazon reviews and other sources as many never file a report and it is free information.
