To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this thinking it looked like a handy thing to have. It was inexpensive with free shipping so I thought why not. Well, it got used maybe once. It is more of a pain to use than any real help at all. One blade is smaller than the other so it doesn't cut all the way down to the counter or cutting board in one slice. I have no idea why the one blade is smaller. Unless you use a certain sawing motion or tip the knife up, it makes it difficult to actually slice right through anything. I wouldn't recommend it. It sits in my drawer.
It broke within the first minute of use. We asked for (and got) a refund. We have a similar knife that we bought 25 years ago and it's still working fine...thought we'd try this one at our summer camp.
I gave this 1 star because you have to assign a star. I ordered this because I wanted something inexpensive to thinly slice small roasts with for sandwiches & that was easy to clean, since we are a small household. Well, when I opened it up, read the directions & touched the adjustment wheel, it broke off in my hand.
Amazon return system is great! Issued a UPS pickup so all I had to do was pack it back up & leave for driver! Wish the product had lived up to the reviews!
I received this knife yesterday and before I could even use it the knob broke off. Now I see why it is priced this low. It would cost more to return it then it did to purchase it so I will just keep the knife part for now. I thought Amazon screened their vendors better than this.
