This Banana Slicer Has Some Of Amazon’s Best Reviews And It’s Now On Sale

Font Size:

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.

So simple to use! (Photo via Amazon)

Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer on sale for $5.99

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

So if you’re sold on the Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer, you can get in on Amazon on sale for $6, over 45 percent off the original price!
