This banana slicer is an Amazon treasure worthy of discovery by Indiana Jones. Its easy-to-use manner and 4.5 star rating are nothing to scoff at, but what makes this slicer worthy of purchase are the over 5,500 customer reviews that make it pure gold.
A quick review of how the slicer works: line up the banana-shaped slicer with a banana and press down to create perfectly sliced pieces. It eliminates the potential cuts produced by knives, is dishwasher safe, and is arguably faster to slice with.
I wasn’t convinced this tool was necessary until I read a few of the thousands of Amazon customer reviews of the slicer. Let me tell you, they’re extremely convincing. They’ve even made review videos.
For decades I have been trying to come up with an ideal way to slice a banana. “Use a knife!” they say. Well…my parole officer won’t allow me to be around knives. “Shoot it with a gun!” Background check…HELLO! I had to resort to carefully attempt to slice those bananas with my bare hands. 99.9% of the time, I would get so frustrated that I just ended up squishing the fruit in my hands and throwing it against the wall in anger. Then, after a fit of banana-induced rage, my parole officer introduced me to this kitchen marvel and my life was changed. No longer consumed by seething anger and animosity towards thick-skinned yellow fruit, I was able to concentrate on my love of theatre and am writing a musical play about two lovers from rival gangs that just try to make it in the world. I think I’ll call it South Side Story. – SW3k, 5 stars
We got our Hutzler 571 today. Realizing how much $$$ we are able to save, we had to fire Consuela. She was our banana slicer since 2010. We are going to miss her. – Jeanette, 5 stars
I can’t believe I wasted so many hours of my life, in the past, slicing bananas! Now, 1 pass and my banana is completely sliced and I can get on with fulfilling all my dreams. Had I found this 30 years ago, I could have been retired now, living off of all the money I could have been making, during the time I wasted slicing individual banana pieces. Don’t let this happen to you!!! – Cheech, 5 stars
This banana slicer has been used as a perfect gift too!
Gave it as a wedding gift with a print out of all of the best rated reviews. – KaeSue, 5 stars
When I read the reviews on this product I was encouraged and ultimately ordered this. I was so sure that the purchase would be helpful I purchased three to pass on to my adult children. The slick device has really helped my marriage….thanks Hutzler 571…looking forward to 572! – Greg Richardson, 5 stars
Now if you’re wondering why the Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer only gets 4.5 stars instead of 5, it’s for reviews such as these:
I tried the banana slicer and found it unacceptable. As shown in the picture, the slicer is curved from left to right. All of my bananas are bent the other way. – Jim Anderson, 2 stars
It only works if you have a banana and these are not included… – Nadja Velez, 1 star
