First, the switch: Because it is a cheap push-in button, which must be constantly depressed to keep the knife on, you lose optimum control quickly. The handle is badly placed for this, as your thumb must always be on TOP of the handle and forward toward the front of it, but you can't hold your hand up there because your wrist angle will be completely wrong for cutting. In addition, keeping that button depressed is difficult not only because it does require a constant application of pressure at a different direction from both the grasp and the application of the knife, but because the button sinks deep into the handle, so your thumb is inside the handle as you're trying to hold and control the knife: Quick cramp. Moreover, as you're pushing it in, if the food you're cutting is moist (like a turkey), juices may run onto the handle, your thumb--and into the hole into which you're pressing the button. NOT safe. A couple times I've wondered whether that shooting pain in my thumb was from nerve torture or electric shock; either way, it wasn't good.
Then the weight distribution of the knife is not very good. Look at the huge bulk of the motor--and then look at where the handle is located, and how it is designed. There's no way to hold this at a proper angle with the handle shaped as it is. Add in the need to be depressing the power button as you're holding it awkwardly, and...
2 stars for effectiveness; minus 3 for bad functional design.
However, all the manufacturers would be wise to lengthen the knives to the size they were decades ago and charge a few more bucks.
This is the biggest drawback of the Toastmaster -- it's blades are shorter than other models.
... Not exactly what it's made for... but then again, I'm a vegetarian.
But the blades are only 8 inches long so they're not long enough for many slicing jobs to include slicing large pieces of meat. The motor is not strong enough to cut through ligaments or joints so you can't cut up a whole chicken with this one.
But it was only $5.00 and it's lightweight, it's easy to pull out for making my croutons, it cleans well. So depending on the price it would be good for the little jobs. I would not recommend if you need one for cutting up chickens and other heavy slicing jobs. This would be perfect for the crafter or someone that needs it to cut small pieces of foam, sandpaper, you can just put one blade in and cut paper with it.
So I can't say it's bad but I also can't say it's good. It's good for what I use it for but it's not good for other uses. I like it because it is lightweight; the button on top does not ergonomically bother my hands but I could see where those with arthritis might have trouble with it. My kids have used it for their school art projects so it's been used in our house frequently and has kept going. HTH.
The answer is a lot! I bake all my own bread. After trying it on two loaves, I put it in the charity donation box and bought another Cuisinart. Clearly did not save any money but I'm happy again. This knife would not go easily through a hard crust loaf. On another loaf, it cut unevenly and vibrated excessively. It was not made for ease of operation. Felt clumsy in my hand and the on/off thumb switch was difficult to keep activitated.

I really thought that an electric knife is exactly what I need to cut my home-baked bread. This particular knife is not heavy duty and did not do the job as well as I prefer.Published on June 19, 2014 by Kay. Pierce
