The Bread Pal™ makes perfect slicing easy! We manufacture our bread slicer with exceptional quality using all American hardwood, hardwood faced materials (No Bamboo and No Splinters) and a food safe cutting surface. IT’S FULLY AUTOMATIC spring loaded, solid locking design is quick to open with absolutely no assembly required; and it folds up just as quickly to an incredibly small height of just 1 1/2 inches! DIMENSIONS: Size when folded for storage is only 1 1/2 inches tall x 7 1/2 inches wide x 12 inches long. When opened is 5 1/4 inches tall and will accept a 6 1/4 inch wide loaf and any length loaf. CUTTING SURFACE: The Bread Pal's slightly wider cutting surface allows for wider loaves if needed. SIMPLE TO USE: To use: Rotate the spring loaded knife guides to their self-locking open position. Insert the bread stop. Position and hold the bread loaf. To store: Push knife guides out of the retaining notch before rotating under.

1) There is absolutely no crumb catching being done. No grooves, no channels, no slots, no nothing! Not terrible, but I am sure a little thought could have been put into this concept and still maintain the folding feature.
2) The piece of plastic you slide into the end to hold the bread in place is just a little too cheap. Does it work? Yes, but it flexes too easily and wasn't perfectly straight when I received the unit.
Overall, a great piece and I highly recommend it despite the 2 minor downsides.
Then I found this very attractive slice guide. But the positives ends there. It was disappointing when I start to use it:
1. Slice is either too thin or too thick (skipping a slot). Thin slices of soft bread is difficult to stand up on its own, and easily get squashed by ever slight pressure of pushing the loaf into the plastic end piece. This often resulted in badly cut slices for 3/4 of my loaf. The alternative is to cut a piece and take it out, then cut next piece - which defeats the purpose of this.
2. Does not catch crumbs, so when using it on kitchen island, I get tons of crumbs to clean up after
3. For high rising loaf, which is very typical for 2 pound loafs and often with 1.5 pound if yeast had a good rise, one must "eye ball" align and pray cutting in will result in knife go into the slot. This is a real skill! The other way is to rotate the loaf 90 degrees if the rised loaf did not rise too high.
The above problems occur for SOFT BREADs, like the one I buy from super markets. So a premium bread knife is absolutely required. Short or dense breads are get better slicing results, but that is not the type of bread my family likes.
I don't mind spending more money as long as it's value justify the price. From the build quality and esthetics, it's top notch and very "gourmet". But I highly question the designer's choice for such thin gap, unless it's really for dense breads. There are a lot of us only prefer real soft breads, and the slices are just too thin (or too thick) for the soft breads.
I noticed that a few reviewers claimed, "...it takes some getting used to"...poppycock! Flip-click, flip-click and you're slicing bread. How hard is that??
The Bread Pal Slicer is constructed so well, that I believe my kids will inherit it, if they're inclined to enjoy fresh bread, like I do.
I only have one warning:
The instructions are NOT kidding when they say to 'terminate' your 'cut' just before getting to the bottom of your 'slice'. If you've got a nice sharp knife...and you don't, it will score the little white cutting board.
Speaking of knives: You'll need a LONG knife for this unit. 8 inches is way too short and 10 inches is barely long enough. So, as long as you're shelling out this much cash for a slicing guide; why not go the extra mile and buy the super bread knife that I got through Amazon? The Winware 12" Bread Knife is made of Stain Free High Carbon Steel; and, will run you just over 11 bucks [plus shipping]. You won't regret it!
I looked at a lot of slicer guides, and thought a long time before spending this much money, but since I wasn't making much progress in slicing reliably without a guide, I'm glad I got it, since it should hold up for a long time.
