My wife, Lorena Bobbit, wanted one but I said no. I'm so thankful she didn't have this lying around in the kitchen.

Necessities 101 for the Recovering Fruit Ninja,This product has helped me through one of the most difficult phases in my life.
October 24, 2012
I was one of the rare black belt fruit ninjas raised on Incorporated mountain when my career took off as a master of fruit destruction. Apple had hired me to decimate their fruit population and I was a rising star when the worst happened. During a routine banana extraction I lost focus and, as with all great fruit ninjas, threw a bomb at my chopping board and decided to cut it in half. Needless to say this did not end well and the road to rehabilitation was a long one at Halfbrick Hospital. My experience had traumatised me and I was unable to cut bananas without becoming violently ill. As a result of my fruit free diet I devoloped scurvy and several pirates at the hospital attempted to maroon me on an island. It was at this island that I gained the trust of the local 'Hutzler' tribe and in thanks for my help rescuing the chieftain's daughter I was granted their totem treasure, the 571B. With this treasure in hand I am free of scurvy and on my way to recovery. Thankyou 571B Banana Slicer!
Thanks A Heap, Hutzler!,I've been slicing Bananas for my family for YEARS the old fashioned way-with a knife. Then one day after having breakfast at my sister's, the Hubs wanted to know why HER bananas were in such pretty even sliced pieces while the ones I've served for years are raggedy about the edges and not so consistant in size....so I said "Well HER husband gave her a Banana Slicer-what do I have to slice with-a knife! I gave you my youth, I've cooked & cleaned for you for years, the least you could do is have gifted me with a Banana Slicer.But NOOOOOOOOO....no Banana Slicer for me..." Needless to say that it ended in such a row that the neighbors called the cops and both the Hubs & I landed in the pokey for disturbance of the peace and now the money I had carefully saved to buy my very own slicer I needed for bail....so now I am penniless, husbandless ( did I mention he left me for a gal with her own slicer?)and without a slicer which I can't use anymore anyway 'cause since the Hubs left me I have been banana-less, too. So I'm switching to cucumbers-got a slicer for that, Hutzler?

Must Have! Don't question it, just hit BUY NOW!,For those of you like me who are getting ready for the Zombie Apocalypse, this is a MUST HAVE tool! I had already packed my survival bags when I came across this item and I just couldn't pass it up. When food supplies are low this 571B tool will help you divide bananas equally so no one feels like they are getting ripped off (which could lead to fights and cause noise that could attract zombies). THIS PRODUCT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE!

The only downside that I've found (which on it's behalf is rather amazing) is I lost it yesterday and was searching my whole house trying to find it. I tore through the kitchen drawers and looked everywhere. Then sadly looking at the bananas I realized I'd never be able to slice again, I saw it. Snuggled warmly between two juicy bananas. Great camo 571B, great camo.
Size does matter!!!,Before buying this product I used to carefully measure my bananas with a measuring tape, or a yard stick! I used to tactically slice every little piece to exactly 1.2 cm. The task was ever so tedious. I used to stand in my kitchen for hours making sure every slice of my fruit was absolutely perfect. If it wasn't I would just throw it away and start a new one. Over the years I have had many mental breakdowns due to this obsession, but I refused help.

Then one day after being admitted into a crazy hospital after having a tantrum in the produce isle at the grocery store, I was informed about this banana slicer. So I purchased it. From that moment on, I knew I was going to be okay! The healing process is so much better with this slicer thank you so much for such a great invention!
Some things are worthy every penny....,

This review is from: Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer (Kitchen)I ordered the slicer last Christmas. Oh my, you should have seen their happy excited little faces that Christmas morning. Sure, at $6.00 it was over budget but you just gotta splurge and treat yourself sometimes, right? Besides, I could not have my children attend school with a banana that wasn't sliced! And what about when the other kids all have bananas with precise measurements? Something like that could ruin a kid! Nope, I decided I would spare my offspring the embarrassment of having a mother with absolutely NO banana slicing skills.
These days money is tight for everyone. When times got tough and I had to find ways to cut spending in my family and it wasn't easy. We sold stuff we didn't need and bought cheaper brands at the grocery store but after a few years of this we got down to the nitty-gritty and had to make our final choice. We were down to our last two items and had to choose what to keep. It was between our triple-ply quilted toilet paper or our Hutzler Banana Slicer. If I was a selfish sort of a gal, I would have picked the toilet paper but I'm a mother - and moms put their kids first. I choose to slice instead of wipe. Sacrificing is what motherhood is all about.
Since last Christmas our family has seen a dramatic change thanks to all the time and effort we have saved. My husband became Mayor, my kids each made the Olympic Banana Peeling team, our dog now fights crime and I am currently filming a reality show where we go around America staging Banana Interventions.
Thank you Hutzler Banana Slicer! You changed my life.
