Advantages: great carving knife
Disadvantages: slices chicken bones
I treated my self to this carving knife for my birthday at the begining of this year as i had had enough of always struggling to cut up joints of beef into managable slices and thought it would be realy useful to cut the bread from my bread maker instead of me hacking away at it and making a right mess.
Since getting this knife i couldnt imagine life without it, it is small enough to store away easily although mine never stays away long.
It makes light work of slicing my beef joints for our dinner and gets me nice thin slices of beef very easily, it is great for cutting the bread as its even cutting motion makes the bread not end up with lumps missing out of it like it does when i calv it by hand.
Although it makes light work of carving up the chicken i prefer not to use it as it also goes through the chicken bones very easily and i have found that sometimes i get slivers of bone in my meat.
It is easy to hold and get a good grip of so no worrys about dropping it, it has an easy to operate on/off button and a quick release button for removing the blades which can be washed by hand or in a dish washer and are made from stainless steel.
It is a nice weight to use as it is only 1/2 a kg so wont make your arms ache and is powered by electric.
I payed £9.99 for mine and am very pleased with the quality and performance for the price.
Summary: a great item necesary in my kitchen
