What every best has:
A reporter for WVEC in Norfolk, Va., tests the Slice-O-Matic at a viewer's home and finds that the directions are hard to follow, it slices unevenly and the julienne blade is a hassle to install. Reviewers at KDAF in Dallas has slightly better luck in their test but gives it a grade of C for being flimsy, saying it might be a good tool for children to use in the kitchen. In another TV review, a reporter at WPMI in Pensacola, Fla., deems the Slice-O-Matic a dud, saying it's useless for slicing larger produce. A group of journalists try out the Slice-O-Matic for Ohio.com and say that while it's no better or easier than using a knife, it might appeal to people who like having gadgets. Customers on Amazon.com are far less forgiving, with most giving the Slice-O-Matic the lowest rating, saying that it breaks easily when slicing harder vegetables and can't even fit many commonly used fruits and vegetables.
