Slice Your Bagel Safely With Ease! The BAGEL GUILLOTINE is the Fast, Safe and Easy way to slice bagels. Cuts sustained while cutting bagels are one of the major reasons for Emergency Room visits. The BAGEL GUILLOTINE has a cradle that holds the bagel while two clear acrylic safety shields keep fingers away from the patented bagel piercing blade. Slicing a bagel is fast (people are known to have sliced as many as 24 bagels in a minute) and easy. Just lift the handle (which includes the blade and safety shields). Place a bagel in the cradle. Place the blade handle unit over the cradle and push down with a rapid motion. Voila! Remove the perfectly sliced bagel. XYLAN® coated blade for smooth slicing and durability. The BAGEL GUILLOTINE will slice one-handed and has received the AMERICAN SOCIETY ON AGING-SILVER AWARD. It doesn't get any faster, safer or easier.
