The original Bread Pal™ foldable bread slicing guide has been manufactured in the Pacific Northwest since 1994 and is designed to last.

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. For more options see the Bread Pal Combo.
Here's how simple it is to use.
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.

Easy to use but it takes some practice with the end guide as it flexes when you hold the bread in place.
Bread Pal writes: We love hearing comments from our customers! When slicing correctly, the bread stop will not flex. Forcing the loaf against the bread stop causes the stop to flex. Simply hold the loaf with out forcing it against the stop and slice. You can check out the video for proper use.

I ordered this for my wife. She is an avid bread baker and makes all kinds of bread for our family. She has had issues with getting even slices on some of the bread and this I think has fixed the frustration. It made the easy to cut loaves easier to cut and made those hard to cut loaves easy. I read countless reviews on Amazon about this and knock-off brands and I am very glad I purchased this for her. She loves it (her words).

Everything worked just as advertised. I have been cutting by eye for more than a year ... this is the first time for a perfect slice of bread. This device really works.

I love the Bread Pal. It makes slicing homemade bread so easy. I was always getting different thicknesses in the slices until I got the Bread Pal. I used a bread knife with a 10 1/4" blade and it worked pretty good. However, I would recommend using a 12" blade so you can make longer slice strokes. It also folds up and stores very nicely.

I reviewed a number of bread slicer guides and luckily stumbled on to the "Bread Pal". It is as everyone says: an extremely good product. It's easy to use and helps me slice consistent evenly slices of home baked fresh bread. I love it. Word of advice: You will need a 10 inch knife. I have an 8 inch knife. It works, but would be so much easier with a longer blade.

After extensive research, I purchased the Bread Pal as an Christmas present for myself - in fact, I got the package deal, with the bread knife (guaranteed lenth for the slots), plastic bags and very nice clips (3). I compared to much cheaper models but BP kept popping up as the best rated. And, the whole package, cost-wise, was more economical than just buying bread bags + shipping (with no ties!) from King Arthur. I made the decision that I wanted to start baking all my family's breads homemade, from dinner rolls to sandwich bread. But, I do a hack job cutting anything, and especially homemade wheat bread can be a pain to cut thin, uniform slices. Well I LOVE my Bread Pal, there is NO assembly required, a quick wipe down is all that is requires, the knife is very good (I don't want to spend $50 on a knife), and you get LOTS of bags. I have frozen my presliced loavesor 2 months at a time and they aren't freezer-burned. I love how neat and store-bought my loaves look, and I have eager fans of my bread who love it when I present them with a prettily bagged, presliced loaf of bread, ready for sandwiches. Much healthier than store-bought brands, and cost-saving over the long run. I heartily recommend making the $75 investment if you're a serious bread baker and it makes slicing a breeze.

Because of the price I was careful to read all the reviews and comments I could find before purchasing this Christmas Gift for myself. I want to say I am very happy with my Bread Pal. I find that by holding the bread, not pushing, against the end stop, I have no problem with the stop bulging. And, if I am careful to get the knife within the slots and use shorter, even strokes, I get great, evenly sliced bread. I really love the nutty THIN slices of wheat bread.
