The Bread Pal™ is a superior bread slicer made with hardwood and hardwood faced materials and a high density polyethylene cutting surface. It's spring loaded design is quick to set up (2-3 seconds) with absolutely no assembly required; and it folds up just as quickly to a 2 inch height for compact storage with your bread maker, on the counter or in a drawer.
Dimensions: Size when folded for storage is 1 1/2 inches tall x 7 1/2 inches wide x 12 inches long. When opened for slicing the Bread Pal is 12 inches long, 6 1/4 inches wide and 6 inches tall. It will accept a 6 1/4 inch wide loaf and any length loaf as it will simply extend out over the end of the cutting surface. To cut round loaves simply cut in half and lay cut side down on cutting surface. Half of the knife guide slicing slots are for 1/2 inch slices and the other half of the slots are for 3/8 inch slices. A knife blade that is 10" or longer is best.
Here's how simple it is to use the Bread Pal.
To use: Rotate the spring loaded knife guides to their open position. Insert the bread stop. Position and hold the bread loaf.
To store: Remove the bread stop. Push both knife guides out of the retaining notch before rotating under.
The Bread Pal™ slices 1/2" and 3/8" pieces; however, slicing in every other slot produces extra thick slices for those homemade bread lovers that like thicker slices! For instance, if you are slicing in every other 1/2 inch slot you will have a 1 inch piece. Half of the knife guide slots are for 1/2 inch slices and the other half of the slots are for 3/8 inch slices. You simply place the loaf at the end that has the size you want. The Bread Pal's slightly wider cutting surface also allows for wider loaves. A 10 inch or longer bread knife or is required. Bread knife sold separately.
A bread stop is included with the Bread Pal slicer and we offer the bread stop for purchase separately for customers who have lost their stop through the years. We have learned through our customer feedback that there has been some confusion as to the purpose of the bread stop and some have been concerned that the stop might be too “flimsy”. The bread stop is made from a very tough, flexible plastic material. It’s purpose is to simply provide a stop (if desired) to line up the loaf before starting your cut. To slice: Place your loaf in the slicer with the end of the loaf to be cut NEXT to the bread stop (no need to force the loaf against the stop), hold the loaf and cut. Although the bread stop will not break, if pressure is applied it will flex some with out causing any problem. Watch the video below for the correct use of the bread stop.

Received today. Great product. Well made, heavy duty and very adaptable to various slice widths (ie, skipping slots) for baguettes, rustic slices, Texas Toast etc. Very pleased. I had researched MANY units short of an electric slicer, most of which were junk, albeit some being cheap imitations of your unit - until I happened on your site. Glad I did.

I ordered a Bread Pal several months ago. I love it. It is wonderful. Made well. Easy to use. Makes cutting my bread machine bread easy as pie. Straight even slices. Folds flat for storage which I love. Definitely worth the money. I'm so glad I purchased it.

We are very happy with our product. Easy to use and store. Cuts nice uniform slices. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a way to slice homemade bread.

Just wanted to say the bread pal had made its way home from New York.
It is as good as you suggested (once I bought a long enough knife ) and wonky bread has been banished!

I've had the BreadPal for several months now and don't know how I functioned without it. I do like that there is 2 options for the thickness of your slice. Most other slicing guides only have 1/2" slots. It is well made, and I'm glad I made the purchase. If you don't own an appropriate bread knife, purchase the one offered. I already own that knife, so I didn't buy it. It does a great job slicing. As another reviewer stated, the only way to make this BreadPal better would be to have a less flexible bread stop. I have to take care that I don't push too hard on the bread. I'm afraid I'll break it the first wood prongs if I continuously put pressure on them. Don't get me wrong, the BreadPal is well made , is nice looking and is made in the USA. If I accidentally broke my BreadPal, I purchase another.
Bread Pal Writes: Thanks so much for your comments, Cookie! The optional bread stop is not designed for pressure to be placed on it. It's there simply as a guide to line up the loaf to the slots to get you started. After that it's not even needed. Our video shows the proper use of the Bread Pal and bread stop. No need to worry about breaking the knife guides as they are very strong, we've never had one break.

This is a great, well-made slicer. It's sturdy enough to hold up to frequent use in our house. The only thing it doesn't do is slice VERY thin slices of bread. Sometimes we like to have slices about half the thickness of normal store-bought sandwich bread and we find this slicer doesn't go that thin. But for all other uses, this slicer is well worth the money. It's the last slicer we'll ever have to buy!

The Answer is Bread Pal. Simple, good design and it works great. I bought it in the USA and brought it back to The Netherlands by plane so I had to buy a knife seperately ;-)
The Bread Pal is great and I could en would recommend it to everyone.
I only have three minor improvements. I probably push the bread to hard, but a less flexible bread stop would be fine. 2. And because I push to hard, not only a bread stop but also a bread pusher would be nice to have. 3. My bread is smaller than the width of Bread Pal. It would be nice if you could make something so that the bread couldn't go anywhere.
But, as I said before, the Bread Pal is great!

Makes bread cutting so very easy. Have owned other boards, but this is definitely the best. Wish it had a crumb catcher. That is the only downside. However, I can live without a crumb catcher.
