Slicing a steaming hot dog is kind of a PITA.
It makes the lengthwise cut as well (the outer diameter of a hot dog and the inner diameter of a 2-year-old's trachea are roughly congruent).  It is fun for the crumb crunchers.

ggyy59gy: 天啊!! 我從來不知道可以把香蕉切成一片一片的, 我一直是用吸的方式, 把整支香蕉吸完... 直到...

今天凌晨2am, 一位老美女性朋友狂打我的手機(missed calls 43), 把我正在跟Emma親熱的夢吵醒
不耐煩的我接起我的手機時, 她狂吼的說她再過5分鐘後就會到我家. 掛斷前還聽到她嘀咕的說著banana...
我還以為發生了甚麼意外(accident with banana), 的確.. 五分鐘未到, 她就已經在敲打我的門了.
打開門, 她衝進來... 二話不說的直問我的香蕉在哪裡, 我驚訝的回答... 冰箱... 在冰箱裏...
她用力掰開冰箱的門... 拿出香蕉... 放在桌上... 然後, 從她口袋中拿出一片黃黃,有間隔的香蕉骨架!
妳要幹嘛!!! 我失理生氣的說著! 妳這瘋婆子衝進我家就為了香蕉?! 誰半夜吃香蕉啊!! 那五條香蕉跟妳有仇嗎?? 需要你半夜姦殺嗎?!?
說時遲那時快, 瘋婆子已經把一支香蕉的皮剝掉了!! 另一隻手把這香蕉骨架壓上... 頓時, 香蕉切片應聲而落...

我... 活了這麼大, 第一次腳軟... 跪在地上呆望著那香蕉切片...
等我回神時... 瘋婆子已經不見了... 唯一留下的... 就是那香蕉骨架...
我上網找了好久, 才找到這裡有賣... 這個發明太神奇了, 這遠超越過中國筷子4-5000年的歷史

就算借錢, 賣身, 拿高利貸... 不管如何,您一定要買這Banana Slicer.
不然, 您算是沒活過...


God!! I never know that you can cut into a piece of banana, I have been using smoke, the entire banana sucking out ... until ...

Early this morning, 2am, an old beauty sex friend beat my cell phone (missed calls 43), I'm awakened dream affectionate with Emma
Impatient when I pick up my phone, she howling said she will be to my house after another 5 minutes before hanging up, hear her muttering about her banana ...
I thought something happens (accident with banana), indeed .. five minutes yet to come, she has been knocking on my door.
Opened the door, she rushed ... apart from anything else directly asked where my banana, I was surprised by the answer ... refrigerator ... refrigerator ...
She was forced to break apart the refrigerator door ... come up with banana ... on the table ... and then from her pocket and took out a yellow interval banana skeleton!
To whom you want to why I am the lost grounds angry her! You this crazy biatch into my house in order banana?! Who midnight, bananas ah!! The five bananas thee any grudges?? Need you at midnight rape and murder it?!?
Just at that moment, the crazy biatch has a banana skin peeled off!! Your other hand on the pressure of this banana skeleton ... suddenly, banana slices drop as ...

I ... live so large, the first is once Jiaoruan ... kneeling on the ground stared banana slices TV drama ...
I returned to God ... crazy biatch has gone ... the only thing left ... is that banana skeleton ...
I surf the Internet and for a long time to find here have to sell ... this invention amazing, far more than 4-5000 years of history over the Chinese chopsticks

Even borrow money, sell their bodies to take usury ... No matter what, you have to buy this Banana Slicer.
Otherwise, you can be considered never lived ...

i was thinking of alton's stance against "uni-taskers" throughout this entire thread


I think it'll also slice a butter stick into 1Tbsp slices, and that can be pretty handy when you're building a pan sauce or baking. I've been thinking of getting one of these banana slicers so our toddler can help in the kitchen without a knife.

ZzeusS: Call me curmudgeonly, but isn't this the third or fourth go-around we had with this?


Something tells me you were simply looking for a reason to use curmudgeonly.

Another device I recommend is the crinkle cutter. It is a simple hand chopper which can be used to make crinkle cut vegetables (cucumbers, carrots, zucchini and so forth) and also crinkle cut french fries. Real home-made french fries are easy to make, even if you do it the traditional way and par-boil and dry the French fries for a couple of minutes before letting them cool and deep-frying them.

The only advance on stone age technology (apart from using metal) is the crinkle pattern, but the tool is perfection and simplicity. Truly one of the great inventions of all history. And it rinses as easily as a knife, making it much superior in every way to the patent french fry devices made of plastic and aluminium.

The trouble with labour-saving devices is that the slight gain in time from using them is completely lost several times over when you clean them. Take for example, the fruit juicer. A $2.00 hand-juicer takes a bit of elbow grease to operate but can be rinsed under running water in a moment, while you have to disassemble and wash the juicer after each use, which takes as much as half an hour. Net loss of time results, and you lose an opportunity to exercise your upper arms.

About the only labour-saving device that actually saves labour is the microwave oven (well, and the toaster). That's one reason why we love the microwave oven, the other being that it is one of the rare househould appliances that will last for years even if you buy a cheap model. A good microwave oven should work for at least 15 years and many people are probably still using their Amana microwaves from the Sixties.

Some gadgets I recommend:

* citrus fruit juicer (manual, glass, good exercise)
* boiled egg slicer (easy to clean)
* bagel holder for slicing bagels (much safer, can be rinsed occasionally)
* egg-poaching cups for microwave (easier to clean than the stove-top version, which also requires a pot to boil water)
* a really good ultra-thin Swiss or German paring knife (very sharp, easy to use and clean, inexpensive)
* microwave-save dishes (Corelle ware is easy to wash, nearly unbreakable unless you drop it just so)
* paper-bags for popping microwave popcorn (sandwich bags will do, watch carefully to avoid burning)
* a small electric coffee-grinder (for grinding all sorts of things besides coffee, making crumbs, etc.)
* electric kettle for boiling water (faster and safer than using a regular kettle, saves energy, can be used anywhere there is an outlet). Oddly enough, this seems to be a common item in Canada but virtually unknown in many countries. The French, for example, insist on using burners that are so hot that their non-heat resistant glassware is at risk of exploding. Thus it is very difficult to make tea in France without boiling water in a metal pan. Very strange.

Cheron: This is a valuable product. You've just been invited to a friends, niece's fourth bridal shower you are a bit put off by the invitation for someone you haven't seen since she stopped by trick-or-treating 19 years ago. Social decorum says you have to buy something but she already has all the latex nighties and palm sanders that anyone could use so you go for the passive aggressive gift. This item will sit unused in her junk draw until she is well past menopause causing her husband to periodically shout "can't we just through this away?" Of course she can't though a gift from a bridal shower away so the tension between her and her husband keeps growing over a banana slicer.


so basically it's a cheap fondu set? Niiiiice.

I can't wait to try some of those sliced bananas with a cool glass of Tuscan 2% milk while wearing my Three Wolf Moon T-shirt.
