One of my favorite kitchen gadgets. Perfect for slicing tiny Tim or grape tomatoes. Serrated blade cuts cleanly and safely through tomatoes and the plastic sleeve works nicely to release tomatoes directly into a salad or pasta
I just received this item, washed it, used it right away...Love it!!! It holds 9 grape tomatoes and slices through clean & instantly. It saved me so much effort & time making a sheet of slow roasted tomatoes. It’s no longer a chore.
Okay, I love kitchen gadgets, but I do not add one to my collection unless it does a thing no other gadget or a good knife will do, and I will use it again and again. Most single use gadgets just pile up in a drawer and then go to the donation box. I have to remember, that a lot of these gadgets are invented for people that need assistance. So, I try not to disparage single use gadgets. That said, I have a hard time standing and slicing for a long time. This seemed like a useful tool.
I fantasized about this for a year, at least, as it resided on my wish list. It was an add-on item one day, and I could not resist. Cherry tomatoes are a favorite and I buy them weekly or more when they are in season. They are a pain to cut individually. There was a suggestion, online, to put the tomatoes between a plate and then slice. That didn't work. So I'd slice these tomatoes, and roast them. I pretty much stopped.
One side is open, and the other closed with a slot that allows the knife to pass. The handle has a triangular blade that is serrated on each side. You basically fill the tube with tomatoes and run the blade all the way through the bottom. It is fast and so easy. The triangle sides just slip through the tomatoes, since you can use the handle from either side. It's simple, useful and efficient. That said, since the tube is wide enough to fit a fat little cherry tomato, the elongated ones do not slice in half perfectly, nor do small ones. For my purposes, though, it's perfect.
