    love, love love these ideas, Tara! We are huge avocado, mozzarella, and (gulp!) tube steak fans over here, and an egg slicer would do the slicing job!

    Thank you!!

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this segment of your blog. I always leave feeling so uncreative.(That’s a compliment to how creative you are!!). =) How could I have been ignoring this handy tool in my drawer for so long, especially with young kids in the house?!?!

    oh!! My child like to eat the butter too. I never occurred to me to cut it up and let her do it . . . it grosses me out so it’s more her trying to outwit me to get some.

      LOL! If it’s in thin slices, I can say, “You may have one piece of butter for your bread.” and then if she eats it, she eats it. It’s better than the sneaky kiddo trying to attack the stick of butter with her spoon. 🙂

    I’ve thought about getting an egg slicer before, but I was afraid I wouldn’t use it enough. Now, I’m totally getting one! I love the idea for avocados. They’re my favorite salad topping, but one of the most time consuming to dice.

    I ordered one at a Pampered Chef party this summer to use on strawberries but still haven’t gotten it from the host. I was bummin’ since strawbewrry season is over — but now I have a ton of other uses. Thanks!

    Just in warning Do not use an egg slicer on portobella mushrooms (or baby bella). I would only use it on the white button (the normal ones that have been in the veggie section for 30+ years).

    I totally messed up 2 egg slicers trying to slice baby bellas – the first one I thought was cheap but the second one was my pampered chef egg slicer.

      Really? I don’t think I’ve ever tried portobellos. Thanks for the tip!

    Do you have an egg slicer you recommend? I broke my last one on mushrooms (I think crimini/baby bellas, actually).

    I would be careful of slicing other items in an egg slicer. I broke my Kitchenaid egg slicer by trying to slice strawberries.

      Really?! Was it defective? I’ve used mine for strawberries many times.
