I thought this bread slicer would be an ideal companion with my breadmaker. I find the wood flimsy and after slicing my (1.5lb)whole wheat bread a few times, the slotted sidewall guides came tumbling down. The tiny wood screws that came with it are too small and the wood is too soft to keep the wooden guides on. However, after using the proper woodscrews and bonding the the wooden guides with Gorrilla Glue(any wood glue will work), that thing is almost indestructible. I also find the bread slices are too thick( considering it's made of wood, the guide would break like matchsticks if they were any thinner). For the price I paid for it, you get what you pay for.
Pros: Price is reasonable, entry level. It does the job of a 1.5lb breadloaf
Cons: Somewhat flimsy construction
Breadloaf larger than 1.5lbs can be a tight squeeze(made from a Breadman breadmaker). Otherwise if you use a regular oven
breadpan, it's ok.
