Advantages: slices evenly
Disadvantages: not for childrens use
I quite look forward to our family get togethers with each other at the end of the week, so I like to cook a sunday roast as the family come round and we all sit around the table together and catch up with each other at the end of the week and I like to have a home style carvery offer for us at dinner time.
I work in the kitchens sometimes in the care home that I work at when I'm not doing care work and they have a James Martin Wahl ZX773 electric carving knife to use on the meat there, I hadn't used one before I took my turn in the kitchens, but once I had got used to the gadget at work I really had to go out and buy one as they make carving so simple and quick.
I bought mine from an electrical store in Hereford town centre, but you can get them on Amazon if you want to order one and I paid £25.00 for mine but they are cheaper on Amazon at around £19, but I was happy to pay what I did as I could have it there and then and take it home without waiting for it to be delivered to my house.
It's quite a solid gadget and comes with two blades, one for the meat and one for carving bread, both fresh bread and frozen, the handle is quite chunky but not too heavy and it plugs into the mains, so you have to use it near a plug socket , but thats not too bad as I have a few plug sockets in my kitchen above the work surfaces.
The caseing is plastic and it comes in white with a black plastic part where the on/off button is, to turn it on you just press the button on the top and the same to turn it off.
The blades have a plastic piece at the back where they slot into the groves of the handle and this helps to holds them into place.
Be carfeful when fitting the blades or when your changing them, remember to turn off the carver at the mains or change the blades when it's unplugged as if you touch the on/off button the blades move straight away and this also has to be kept out of reach of children as the blades are very sharp.
Once the blades are fitted into the handle you can turn it on and just have to place the blades onto the joint of meat or loaf of bread you want to slice, so that the movement of the blades cut the meat or bread, you don't have to press down hard , just move the blade slowly down for an even cut.
This makes carving meat and bread very easy and frozen bread can be cut too. I like this gadget as it saves me making a mess when slicing bread, as I can never get the uncut bread sliced evenly with a bread knife and this does it great for me.
I'm happy to recomend this to you as a labour saving device that is useful and works really well.
