5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT Gift, August 3, 2012
Once I figured out I had to peel the banana before using - it works much better.
Ordering one for my nephew who's in the air force in California. He's been using an old slinky to slice his banana's. He should really enjoy this product!

A hair pick also works well - just another alternative!

WAIT!! You have to PEEL the banana??? I just returned my Victorio 571B because I thought it was defective......

Yeah, but a slinky -- now there's an idea!

It would allow for multiple banana sliceage.

The product still works even if you don't peel the banana until after slicing. The only disadvantage is that you have to peel each individual slice. For some of us that's a feature and not a bug. :-D

And this device also works as a hair pick, so that's fair!

Just be glad that he's in the Air Force and not in the military.

I was in the Navy and worked with the Air Force, so I think that's actually funny.

Once your nephew chews through the tape on the package to get to his 571B, he'll have to ask for help on reading the directions to peal the banana.

For those of you expressing concern over the need to peel the banana first, rest easy. There is also an ingenious peeling solution that complements the Hutzler 571B.

I present to you the Koziol Fips Banana Peeler!
