Lifetime Brands Hoan Bagel Guillotine Slicer
Forget using your ordinary bread knife when slicing bagels in half. There is only one kitchen gadget that is up to the task, slicing bagels in an effortless manner and with great precision. That tool is Lifetime Brands’ Hoan Bagel Guillotine Slicer. Its thoughtful design keeps your hands out of harm’s way.
Lifetime Brands drew inspiration from the late 18th century French contraption for implementing the capital punishment. Instead of beheading hapless individuals, however, this kitchen tool splits bagels after bagels with absolute precision. As long as the bagel can fit inside its bagel holder, the Guillotine Slicer can give you precise slices of your favorite baked goodies.
The Hoan features a solid frame that feels solid every time you use it. It comes with a comfortable grip that doesn’t have any adornment or unnecessary designs. The handle secures the slicing blade made of high-carbon stainless steel. The edges of the slicing mechanism come with serrations for more efficient cutting. Also aiding in the effortless slicing of bagels is a blade that’s coated with Xylan nonstick material. One can think of the slicing blade as the modern incarnation of the French capital punishment tool.
To safeguard your hands from accidental cuts, Lifetime Brands integrated a clear acrylic material in the handle frame. This serves as a safety shield while allowing you to see the cutting or slicing of the bagel. The blade itself comes with a triangular shape, the tip of pierces through the top of the bagel. With a gentle downward push, one can have perfect halves of bagels in no time. Four brass rivets secure the blade to the handle frame. They also provide a good contrast to the unicolor design of the kitchen tool.
The bagel holder features an access slot. It allows for easier removal of the bagel once sliced. There is also a slot or groove in the middle of the V-shaped upper section of the bagel holder. This aids in centering the baked item for more efficient cuts.
The base of the Hoan is wide enough to help secure it on your countertop. However, there are no suction-cupped feet for better stability. Regardless, it is still a stable platform for slicing your favorite bagels.
The Hoan Bagel Guillotine Slicer is a more efficient and safer way to slice bagels. It also features a minimalist design to complement a modern kitchen’s existing aesthetics.
