Not going to lie: the crumb catcher fell apart the moment it came out of the box. The little wooden slats are very fragile and come off easily. We glued it back together. No big deal.
I could TOTALLY see how someone would give this a bad review. I can't imagine cutting bread in this with a manual knife. It would be difficult to line everything up and hold the bread straight simultaneously.
If you have an electric knife, this contraption works very well. I bought it at the same time I bought my Cuisinart Knife. If you line the knife up well, you get consistent slices from even the grainiest breads. Really, all you probably need is an electric knife and you'll get uniform slices from your bread without this slicer.
The major thing I don't like about it is that it takes up a lot of cupboard space. I'm sure one day it'll end up in the back of my cupboard, forgotten.
I would not recommend purchasing this item but rather look for a narrower version that can be used properly or purchase a knife with the longest blade possible.
Too bad it is not about an inch or more narrower. A great idea would be to have an adjustable width feature.
Price is high for the quality.
Update: Purchased 10" bread knife on Amazon. Works well now. Needed a manual blade for cutting when others are sleeping. Using the electric knife was like using a chainsaw in terms of noise!
Overall, this was well worth the money. I love it.
The board itself needs to be treated as it scratches and cuts easily. I also noted that the screws were not included. This is not a big deal as it only cost 30cents to get 4 of them at the local hardware store.
