The other day I was looking at my egg slicer and thought…
Wow, this is getting old. It was a hand-me-down from mom back when I had my first apartment in college…and I know she had it quite some time before that. I wonder if I shouldn’t get a fancy new one?
Then I saw one at Bed Bath & Beyond for $8 (!!!) and decided I could stick with my old-fashioned one (plastic, not stainless or aluminum).
So guess what happened a day or so later? Yep. I was slicing an egg and…a piece broke off! So, I can still use it, I will just have one double-width piece. But, I am going to look elsewhere for a new, cheaper model than the pretty one at BB&B. It just needs to slice eggs, it doesn’t need to be aesthetically pleasing.
EDITED TO ADD: Crap, I just found the one I really want—it’s $16, but it’s a 3-in-1 that slices, cuts wedges, OR uses both screens to cut teeny pieces for salads! I must have this egg slicer!
