This is a screen shot of a vintage, never been used used original Slice-a-Slice device, offered recently on Ebay. As I developed The Nicer Slicer product and company over the last few years, I scoured the internet for references to the old slicer device. I was struck by the number of people who had found one at a yard sale or antique store, attempted to use it and, in frustration, posted online that “it didn’t work.”
If you are reading this, you must have at least a passing interest in preparing food for yourself, friends and family. As the Creative Director here at The Nicer Slicer, my job is to provide you, our visitors, with interesting, delicious and even entertaining information about using our product. Bread in all its various forms has been around for thousands of years and is a deep part of almost every culinary culture. We’ll explore some of those connections to human sustenance in the coming months.
