I was just about to order another egg slicer because the previous one (same model) I purchased was a miserable failure. It failed to slice completely through hard-boiled eggs leaving you to extricate remnants from the base. I thought I had just been unlucky. Now I see others have had the same very disappointing experience. I have always been pleased with my purchases. Sadly no alternative offered!

I had my last egg slicer for around 15 years this one has not lasted 15 weeks. I have used the slicer a few times for eggs and as a result all the wires have bent. Very disappointing to receive such a poor product from Lakeland.

Really Awful - Not Fit for Purpose”
by A Baker
The first time I used this product I sliced both eggs and mushrooms for our salad. It didn't work well on either. When I picked it out of the dishwasher I noticed that the wires were all bent and therefore could not be used again. I assumed it was just a faulty product and exchanged it in our local Lakeland store. The second one's plastic feet fell off when taking it out of the packaging and this time we used it only for eggs assuming the mushrooms were too hard. The wires have bent again and will need to be returned. Pathetic product. Not fit for purpose. What a rip off. Beware!

Appalling, not fit for purpose.”
by Fran Thomas
This is the only item I have ever needed to take back to Lakeland because of utter bad quality in nearly 20 years. First, the little feet fell off the second it came out of the package. Then the items cut, eggs and mushrooms, stuck because the design does not allow the wire to compltet the cut all the way through. Lastly the wire is so weak it became caught on the "grid" part of the upper body. Not fit for purpose. This item has really let Lakelands quality promise down, how on earth did it get past the testing stage?

A note from the team: Thank you for placing your review. We're sorry the egg slicer hasn't worked as well as expected. We are please our customer service team have been able to help. We'd recommend you push the slicer through the mushroom or egg and then just pull or slide the mushroom/egg off the base.

Used this once for a large egg and have been left with small bits of egg "trapped" in top part where it is impossible to remove - although pouring water onto it moves them about, but still can't get at the pieces. What now?

Could be better”
Says on the tin that it could be used to cut eggs and mushrooms, well you can't because of the design. Cuts eggs perfectly but anything else including mushrooms remain stuck at the last point as the wires donot go fully across. I have seen better designed ones but will keep this for eggs.
