This product is great in theory, but doesn't work very well. There's 2 main problems. First, I read the reviews saying it wasn't large enough, but I thought they were referring to those massive, gourmet strawberries that are the size of plums or small apples. They weren't - this device is too small for many of the strawberries I get every week. You have to cut them in half to fit, which results in ugly slivers that are hard to eat. Second, the blades are not sharp at all. This might be a safety or liability issue, but I wouldn't even call them blades so much as metal strips. They don't do the cutting, your hand pressure does. What this means is that you squeeze and squeeze, and when the pressure gets great enough the device pops and the strawberry is forced through the strips. The strawberries get bruised and come out very wet from being squeezed. This device requires enough pressure that I think someone with any sort of coordination or strength issue in their hands would not be able to use it. What's disappointing is that the device seems like it would work well (small size aside) if decent blades were provided. I'll use it until it breaks and then look for something different.

I use this for mainly strawberries. Freeze abunch for winter desserts and cereals. Cut prep time by 70%, really. Great for mushrooms too. Well built. Blades won't break or stretch like wire type egg slicers. You will be happy with this item, PROMISE!!!

This is undoubtedly the best strawberry slicer around. REAL blades; not flimsy wire. Blades are firm and SHARP! They will cut- not SQUASH the fruit- the way some of the cheaper slicers with wire blades will. I primarily use this to prepare strawberries for dehydrating, and consistently receive evenly sliced berries. I can easily slice 5 pounds of strawberries in less than 10 minutes. Clean up is easy- just watch those blades because they are sharp. You cannot go wrong if you purchase this.

Oh my gosh, where has this been most of my life?
I have spent many many years slicing by hand with
a knife & have tried other types of slicers, but gotta
say this is "AWESOME"!!!!!!! Get one you'll never use
anything else again!!!!

I had high aspirations for this slicer. I was so disappointed. I purchased slicer six weeks ago and have used it three times. This morning when using it for the fourth time the housing broke and the blades fell out. Amazon did not support return or replacement because it was past the 30 day return window. Seriously, how often do you think the average person slices up strawberries that a customer only has 30 days to find out that an item is poorly made? This item was sold by Amazon and they claimed they would support it 100% - for 30 days. So now I have to deal with the manufacturer to be reimbursed in someway.

Our children LOVE to see this thing work! Built heavier than expected. It works very well, but be warned, it will launch you slices about six feet if you have it aimed up!

Bought this item along with several other kitchen utensils - it broke after inserting first strawberry for slicing .. Returned this piece of junk and found that the egg slicer I bought does a much better job..

This smushed all of the strawberries instead of slicing them. When it sliced them, only 1 of the slices came out well. Hard for kids to use. Slices very thin -- maybe good for strawberry shortcake, but not for eating.

The tool is very simple, but it really works. I cut nearly 35 pounsd of strawberry every day and it last almost a year. It pay off the price.

Difficult to initiate the slice move. You press hard and then it snaps causing a tendency to pinch the skin on your palm.
