Be a bit of a struggle if Euro rules come in and we have long straight bananas. Its rather difficult to wash up and it does not come with a banana peeler. The slicer is the same colour as the banana skin which could create a hazard under Health and Safety Regulations and for the same reason a receptacle should be added to stop any slip on banana skins. A special insurance should be introduced to ensure that the supplier is covered for all these eventualities.
As far as slicing bananas go, this item excels. However, when I try to use it on other foods, it is a veritable nightmare.
I have tried to utilize this for all my other fruits, vegetables, meats and grains, but I cannot seem to find a way to get it to complete the desired activity without creating a devestating mess or outright failing. Even when I cut the steak into the ultimately awkward shape this cutter was molded to, I can, at best, get the steak only a quarter of the way through, and this is with the assistance of many other tools. I suspect this is an issue with how sharp the slicer is.
It wasn't until I cut the steak manually with a knife that I was able to get it into the mold, but at that point, this is more of a holder than anything else.
I use steak as an example, but this has been my experience with just about all other foods also (except for those that would instead crush). Therefore I must withhold 1 star until these deficiencies are remedied.
Once again, the Hutzler 571 came through in a pinch. I was making baked ziti for the family when my picky daughter decided that she was going to make a peanut butter and banana sandwich instead. Before the 571, I would have had to stop cooking in order to slice the banana by hand, delaying the meal for the rest of the family who actually enjoy their father’s cooking. The 571 allowed my picky child to be able slice an entire banana by herself in a single stroke, saving the day. She has requested a revision to the 571 to make narrower slices, to which I told her to take a hike.
Sadly, I have a unique problem. The bananas I bought this week curl neither to the left nor the right; my bananas curl upwards. Nearly sliced my d*** fingers into neat 1" chunks. Guess I'll have to wait for the right-curl bananas to be stocked at my local grocer.
