Genius or Crazy? Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer

Occasionally I see things online and I can’t decide if they are genius or crazy.

In these cases I think you should tell me.

Today on Amazon I found this Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer.

  • Faster, safer than using a knife
  • Great for cereal
  • Plastic, dishwasher safe
  • Slice your banana with one quick motion

Okay parents- genius or crazy?

    I have a banana cutter similar to this product by Garden Fresh. When I used it on multiple bananas, the blades retained mushy pieces of banana between cuts. Kind of messy. I have since bought another slicer from Target for $6.99. It is the same or similar to the one pictured at this link Works great! Was able to slice multiple bananas quickly and easily. Slices were a nice size for my banana pudding, not as wide as the flat cutter.
