I don't see the problem!”
This is a super piece of kit. If one reads how to use it properly, then there is no problem. It's ideal for the bread that I bake in my breadmaker. Easy to use, does not slide (has to be used on the worksurface though). One thing that you must use with this item is a really good serrated bread knife.

Good product and is easy to use - if right handed! I struggled as a left-hander and after decimating a small loaf decided to return it to the shop. Being kakhanded, I had to cut slightly backwards which I found awkward and couldn't keep the bread knife flat against the metal strips. Turning the machine around did not help as I then need to cut r/handed! A great idea, just not for me.

I bought this product specifically to cut home-made bread - wish I had clicked through and read all of the earlier reviews before I did so, as it is much too narrow to use for bread from my Panasonic bread maker. The design of the product itself is great - simple to use, and sturdy. It just doesn't fit my bread!

Having read the reviews on this product - some of which were negative and suggested not buying it - I was unsure but went ahead with the purchase because of the Lakeland guarantee and also found nothing else on the market to compare. I need not have worried - I love this product! It doesn't move around and I am careful to remove bread to the bread board I stand it on to finish the slice so as not to cut through the plastic. A spare plastic part would be very helpful but other than that it's a wonderful breadslicer for a small sized loaf, eg 1lb.

Not a good product”
by Mrs mitchell
Thought I had to try this myself despite the reviews. But I have to agree with the negative ones. It's awkward to use, you cannot cut the loaf all the way to the bottom. It was worse using it with the electric knife as that wanted to cut through the plastic. Loaves from my Panasonic bread maker don't fit it either. That said, Lakeland didn't quibble, just gave me a refund ; the amount of products I have bought in store & online which I love, far outweigh the negatives. We all still love Lakeland, don't we?!

Great, but beware!”
by Mr Firth
I love my Evenslice, but when it arrived, I ran my finger along the knife guide and got a sliver of plastic in my skin. My own fault, as if I had first cut a slice of bread, it would have removed the offending plastic.

I make my own bread but was always hated when it came to slicing it as it was always too thick. I bought this slicer and it has been great, slices are now thin and even, I never buy shop bought bread anymore make it all in the bread maker and use this to cut it, excellent product

Bought this to help with slicing home baked loaves from my breadmaker, however it's not wide enough for the loaf to sit in between the guides so I have to squash it in which defeats the object of the exercise. Have stopped using it, so bit of a waste of money.

I was eagerly waiting for this to arrive we recently bought the Panasonic bread machine (fabulous) and finding it hard to slice evenly, ordered the even slicer. It isn't wide enough I've had to try and cram the loaf into it resulting in uneven slice's and I think it's very flimsy for the price, and because it wasn't cheap I'll be returning it

do not buy this”
by monica reggler
this item is rubbish, the bread does not slice evenly, you end up with some thin slices and some so thick they cant fit in your toaster

Does what is says”
I bought this item to cut my homemade bread and it works well enough. I am not proficient at using it though, because i still get uneven slices, so am going to buy the electric slicer instead.

Good but needs a bit of a redesign”
by Mr Jolley
After using this occasionally it slices bread nice and easily and also holds the bread steady as slicing. The bread cuts nice and evenly so it does what it's designed for, but the major fault lies with the design of the knife guard,After using less than a couple of months the knife guard has very deep scores in and is very close of cutting right through, It should be made of a harder material or at least supplied with extra knife guards. Looking online you can't buy the replacement part, it does clip in so it seems it is a replaceable part. Come on Lakeland ,you're better than this.

The Bread slicer that works but needs spare parts!”
by Mrs Linda E Brown
Just bought yet another Bread Slicer! I love this slicer as it is ideal for machine made bread. But it doesn't like the bread knife which eventually cuts through the knife plate no matter how careful you are. What I can't understand is why we all have to pay out another £20 (or near enough, the original slicer cost £12 many years ago), just to get a replacement knife plate! Come on Lakeland, I am not the only one, it's about time you sold SPARE PARTS for your equipment. I am not happy to pay out this cost every few years, but as I make all my own bread and this is the only bread sl

I rarely experience disappontment with any Lakeland purchase but I'm afraid this time I have to agree with other negative reviews. This does slip around my worktop a fair bit and beng aware of the warning not to cut into the plastic base ensures my slices are far from uniform in shape, I also find the little spikes very sharp indeed

DISAPPOINTING, POOR VALUE”
by Eileen Washer
I usually like Lakeland products and enjoy shopping there but this Even Slice should be called "UNEVEN Slice". I have read the other reviews and it seems there are a great many people who have the same thoughts as me. It is extremely difficult to get even slices from any size of loaf. I make my own bread in a breadmaker machine so the loaves are always uniform in size but trying to cut even slices is a near impossibility so it looks as if this was a very bad buy and it is back to the old method and another piece of useless equipment put at the back of the cupboard or in the bin.

Won't be buying one!”

I think I'll stick to my knife, it has infinitely adjustable thickness control. And takes up less space.

would not recommend”
by Ms Mitchell
I hesitated to spend £20 on this item but have always been satisfied with Lakeland purchases in past so I went ahead. I found that an ordinary medium loaf of 12 cm width will not cut evenly when fresh, and certainly not if you hold it as shown in the picture on the website. Also if you wash it, the water and any residual crumbs stick in the side channels as a ‘mush’ which are impossible to get out. I feel this will be 'redundant' in the back of a cupboard and has been a waste of money. Wish I had read the number of negative reviews before - lesson learned!

OK: not great; expensive”
It's OK. It is a fiddly thing to use - in making it easily fold-able the ledge upon which you rest the bread to cut it is really too small, and the simple truth is that if you don't have the open surface of the bread 100% flat on the facing plate, the bread you end up with will have a perfectly straight cut but not necessarily uniform thickness. It is expensive for what it is - a penny shy of £20 which is not a bad markup for what must cost a very small fraction of the selling price, but if you really have trouble slicing bread I'll give it a 7 /10 for function and a 4/10 for value.

A little disappointed on opening the box. I feel it is rather overpriced for what it is. It is definitely NOT non slip on my granite worktop and I have to wedge it against something. The slot-in thickness adjuster slips out rather easily - beware as I didn't notice (till my son said he couldn't find it) that on shaking off the crumbs it had joined them in the bin. I agree about the knife cutting into the plastic piece below - I hope spares are available in the future! Having said all this, it does enable everyone in the house to cut good even slices.

Worst buy ever”
I am so disappointed with this item. Asked a friend to bring it over to France. It's useless. I should have looked online first as it isn't the same bread slice guide that you used to sell. It's too flimsy. Will last years as I have no intention of using it again. A complete waste of £20. Not your usual standard Lakeland. Friend back in UK otherwise would have asked her to return it. So disappointed. Every other thing I've bought from Lakeland has been brilliant and worth the money. Wouldn't even give it 1 star.
