I just want to spotlight something I'm finding very useful. It is called an 'simpleslice' and it is brilliant for cutting consistent, even slices of bread. It makes sure that I get eleven slices of bread from my 10p loaf - 1p a slice and one slice 'free'!
It's a hand-operated gadget and I have found it so easy to use. You can find the web page here
And a video demo here.
It's not cheap but neither is it outrageously expensive either, it takes little space and I now always use it when slicing bread. There's no fiddly setting up and a quick wipe and it's clean again.
If you make your own bread or buy bread unsliced, it is well worth a look.
(and I haven't been asked for or paid for this post, it is just my own recommendation)
