Product Review: The Knife Glider

The Ranting Reviewer does not get paid or receive any revenue from manufacturers or retailers of products reviewed. I occasionally receive products that I am asked to use and see what I think. I take a look, try them out and tell you all about them.

The other way is to place The Knife Glider on the food and use the face of it as a shield against your knife. I found this to be easier.

I used it for jalapeños that I didn’t want to get the hot oils on my hands.

The peeler attachment makes it easy to hold on to veggies as you peel them.

My take: If you spend any time around professional chefs or even prolific home cooks, you will find that everyone has sliced into their fingers multiple times. The Knife Glider is built to keep that from happening to you. It is versatile and easy to store and clean (dishwasher safe). While someone truly experienced with knives may not choose to regularly use it, it is ideal for new cooks and those who are nervous while cutting and chopping. The Knife Glider can be purchased here.
