This knife is amazing, exactly what we were looking for! The sizing wheel is easy to use, the slices of bread are the perfect thickness every time. I cut the bread on the edge of a cutting board as another user recommended, but my partner doesn’t need to, finishing slicing with the tip of the knife. We both totally recommend it!
I make homemade bread for my husband and he would always wind up with either a slice that is so thin you could read through it or a slice so thick that you can make a whole sandwich with it you slice it in half again. We have used the Deli Pro and we are very pleased with the results. Looking forward to using and meat.
I started making bread in a bread machine, and was looking for help in making slices straight and uniform. This item is ALMOST perfect. It helps keep the slice uniform, and the serrated edge is good for bread. However, the design doesn't allow the knife to cut fully through the slice of bread -- it stops about 1/2' from the bottom of the slice. The"guide" is lower than the knife, so I wind up using the tip of the knife to slice the rest of the way through, and, well, that isn't a straight slice.
For six bucks though, what the heck. I'm keeping it and using it for bread...."Most" of my slice will be good.....but there is probably something better out there.
UPDATE: I figured out how to use this darn thing to slice bread well, as I hoped it would do. I put the bread on a cutting board, on top of a thick (folded) towel, so there is a "drop" from the edge of the cutting board to the counter of about an inch. I put the loaf of bread out beyond the edge of the cutting board (in mid air, to overstate it!) and cut....the knife keeps on going and when it finally "stops" on the counter (its the guard that hits, not the knife), I've cut through the whole slice without having to wiggle, twist or do anything but keep a straight even slice. I cut several slices at once doing it this way (feeding six men at a time), so it is easy.
Strongly recommend. I took those other bread slicers off my "wish list". This is small, handy, inexpensive and works great.
Next to my Showtime Rotisserie and NuWave Oven, this is one of the best As Seen on TV purchases that I have made. It is sharp and the guide adjusts from 1/4" to 1" thickness. I used it to slice through a loaf of turkey ham that I had been avoiding because I didn't feel like butchering it with a knife or pulling out my food processor to slice. I sliced the whole loaf into 1/4" slices in less than 5 minutes. The knife also does a great job cutting even bread slices, and it works like a charm when slicing tomatoes. This is a really good kitchen tool to have. Well worth the price!
I bought it be from a second hand store years ago! I love this knife I use it to cut everything. It stays sharp. Cuts everything perfectly!! So I bout another one for my fiancé to use when I’m using mine. I even sent my mother one!
I got this for slicing home made bread loaves. At the low price on amazon, I figured it would not be much of a financial loss if it didn't work very well for this purpose. However, I have been pleasantly surprised at how well it works! It cuts the bread evenly into uniform-thickness slices. It works well on soft, freshly baked bread regardless of the type of bread. The blade is serrated and very sharp, so be sure to use a cutting board! Just one nit-pick: the knife I got is usable best by right-handed people. Lefties will have to practice using it in their right hand. Or maybe they make a left-hand version - ? In any case, this knife works great for slicing bread.
I have to say I bought this due to the good reviews... Sure its not the highest possible quality but you know what...? It works exactly as advertised and it is only 6 bucks and change.
I bought it to slice bread and its perfect. The only negative is that if you adjust the knob allot, especially at the outside size extreme, I can see this not holding up. For me I am setting it to one size for cutting home made bread.
Its perfect. Knife is sharp. Guild works. I give this a 5 star! I am order two more right now. One for myself and one for my wife's family.
