Watermelon Slicer

Melon Cantaloupe Watermelon Stainless Steel Slicer Splitter Creates 12 Equal Slices

Watermelons can be imposing. I mean, they’re huge! But they can be beaten. Imagine a fight between a watermelon and a pumpkin or even a jack o’ lantern; I think we all know who would win. Take this Melon Cantaloupe Watermelon Stainless Steel Slicer Splitter for example: it is of the familiar push-down-to-slice variety, but huge enough to tackle a watermelon. Of course, just because it is a huge, gigantic slicer doesn’t mean it will work. It would appear a good deal of force is still necessary to push it through the great green monster — but at least it won’t be grinning at you mockingly while you try!

***UPDATE 9/9/15*** … and the watermelon wins! This thing is getting slammed in the reviews. About as hard as it must be to try to make this watermelon slicer actually work!

Start Your Own Carny Cart For $169.99

10w Stainless Steel Automatic Food Slicer Cutter Twister Machine

There is one thing that every food stall in every carnival or fair must provide: fried food. Once this understanding has been understood, the next step is to decide what to fry. Naturally, potatoes come to mind for having a good ratio of deliciousness to cheapness. But still, one needs to put a spin on things to stand out.

The 10w Stainless Steel Automatic Food Slicer Cutter Twister Machine is exactly what the carny ordered.

For the low, low price of $169.99 you too can be making tornado potatoes from the comfort of your very own food stall. Or perhaps even the home, it being time for back to school and all — which in that case this little rotary cutter is a double bonus! Use during the school year might not provide the healthiest options (oh, just put an apple in there or something), but when summer rolls around next year, the family will be all set to rake it in from the rubes.

PS: One order, please.

PPS: The last time BTKS featured a similar rotary slicer it had a price of over $500!

Zyliss Garlic Slicer

Zyliss Garlic Slicer

Oh, garlic how good you can be. Added to anything and your distinctive aroma entices. You can be smashed, chopped, baked or broiled. And let’s not forget sliced. ‘But sliced garlic can be difficult to handle,’ some might say. True, slickery little cloves try to run away. But not when enshrined in the Zyliss Garlic Slicer.

The garlic gadget consists of a food holder designed to contain any wayward cloves. Just peel a clove off the bulb, pop it in the contraption and slice away. Then fry, bake and sauté for all to delight. And no worries, the base stores any excess. Better yet, the device is less than ten bucks. Sliced garlic, you belong in everything.

Oh, and if you happen to be a dachshund. Just look at that happy face!
