I reviewed at least a dozen bamboo bread slicers before making my decision. Most of them had many bad reviews so I used what was bad about others to select one that corrected the common problems. I settled on Mama’s Great Bamboo Bread Slicer and and am very delighted with it. The cutting guides and two (yes two) end boards slide under the base in a slot custom cut to fit the pieces for compact storage. The width of the slicer can be adjusted to a choice of three widths by which base slot you insert the guides in, baguette, small loaf or large loaf.
