Assemble the Nicer Slicer and a sharp (preferably serrated) knife with an 8” blade on a clean workspace.
With Slicer open, insert a slice of bread, toast or bagel half and press it gently against one perforated side. Pull curved top handles together firmly, taking care not to crush the slice.
While holding Slicer upright with one hand, use knife in other to cut through the slice. Use a smooth, sawing stroke with little downward pressure. If knife binds, release pressure slightly on the handles and on downward stroke.
Open handles and remove two thin, ready to use slices. Assemble slices with fillings or toppings of your choice and enjoy your culinary creation!
