1.0 out of 5 stars Banana Slicer? More like Banana Squisher, October 21, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fox Run 4069 Banana Slicer
I wanted a way to quickly slice bananas for making dehydrated banana chips. Being able to cut the entire banana in one stroke seemed like a great idea. The fact that it was curved to produce more uniform slices in spite of the fruit's curvy nature also seemed like a plus. But since it is hard to tell about these things from a picture on a web page, I also ordered a competing product, the Chef'n Bananza Banana Slicer to try as well. Both products arrived today, and I had some firm but ripe bananas waiting for them.

Unfortunately, this slicer is a miserable failure. It squishes its way through even a fairly firm banana. The "blades" are thick and dull. The slices are a bit too large for dehydrating. And the "curved to fit the fruit" idea, while nice in theory, does not line up well with real bananas.

I cannot recommend this product, in spite of what at first glance appears to be a clever idea. Fortunately, my backup plan, the Chef'n Bananza, was a much better solution. See my review of that item for more details.
