I think bananas are the most relaxing of fruits and I like to eat one everyday of every season. As much as I love bananas, I don't understand the point of this banana slicer. Unless one plans on making a massive amount of banana splits, why on earth would you need a banana slicer? I see the benefits of using it to add banana to your morning bowl of cereal, but is the amount of time saved really more than the amount of time it will take to wash the slicer by hand? I doubt it. What do you think?
