If You Find Using A Butter Knife Difficult And Dangerous, The Banana Slicer Is For You

Banana, sliced.

In our hectic modern world, it’s difficult to find time in the day to pick up a butter knife and slice up a banana. I eat at least once sliced-up banana with peanut butter every day, and know this feeling well. That’s why someone decided to invent the Banana Slicer, which chops your banana into uniform slices with a single stroke. Because apparently that’s something that people want.

Washing the Banana Slicer is a concern. Yes, it goes in the dishwasher, but I don’t run my dishwasher every day. I do eat at least one banana per day. With my slicer in the wash, I would have to hand-wash the slicer, use a knife, or buy multiple slicers. Look how many problems this device causes!

“Pretty much anything but a banana cuts a banana,” notes Drew, who brought this item to our attention through his site, The Worst Things For Sale. And yet, if you struck a peeled banana with an unpeeled banana with sufficient force, it would cut the banana. It would also squish the banana, but that’s semantics.
