Summary

An average tool with limited usability. The stainless steel blades are fairly sharp as it serves the purpose of thin slicing of nuts. However, the functioning of this tool is not smooth and requires a lot of effort.

Today multiple kitchen tools are loaded in the market that promise to reduce time and effort in the kitchen. However, many of these fail to deliver the results or are extremely difficult to work with. 

We recently ordered a 3-in-1 dry fruit cutter that functions as a cutter, slicer and a grinder. After testing this in our kitchen for several days, what are our observations on this tool? Is it smooth to function? In practicality, is it ideal for daily use? 

All the answers to these questions and more information on the product is covered in our Dry Fruit Cutter review below.

Dry Fruit Slicer – Detailed Review

Design 

The overall design of this tool involves four different parts that are the following : 

  • The first part: It is the base where all the blades are attached. 
  • The second part: This involves a hollow container where all the nuts are placed. 
  • The third part: It is the ring which locks the base cups and helps in rotation.
  • The fourth part: It is the topmost part of the tool where the pressure needs to be applied. It will help create the motion.

Packaging 

This dry fruit slicer comes in a box pack. All the parts of this tool are separated and require assembling.

Our Observations 

Assembling 

Once we figured out what part will fit in where, the overall assembling was a quick process. There is a small graphic given on the box, which is easy to understand. There is no manual inside the box. (Check out our reel to know more).

Utility 

To better examine the functioning of this tool, we sliced multiple nuts including pistachios, almonds and cashews. 

What we liked about this tool? – The blades of this dry fruit slicer were quite sharp. We were able to get thin but uneven slices of the nuts. Due to its lightweight, we did not face any issues while handling. 

It has a very compact design making it easy to store. Also, the overall maintenance of this tool was pretty hassle-free. No complaints here. 

What does not work? The overall rotation of this tool requires a lot of effort and isn’t particularly smooth. The topmost part of the tool needs to be pressed really hard in order to rotate.

Despite us using this tool multiple times, the motion did not become swift and neither did the effort/pressure lessen. Apart from that, the ring keeps becoming loose and requires a lot of adjusting.

The Verdict?

Although this has very limited usability, for someone who needs thinly sliced nuts everyday/regularly – this tool can prove to be useful. But if you require thinly sliced nuts occasionally, we would say not to purchase this as the motion isn’t smooth and effortless. There are better tools available meant for this specific purpose in the market.

Note – Slicing nuts with utmost thinness using a knife is a tedious and time-consuming task. In fact it may cause thumb cuts too. Such a tool (not this design in particular) helps prevent it when you are doing this job in bulk.

  • The functioning of this tool requires a lot of effort.

Slicing nuts regularly? A tool like this could be a decent addition. But there are better designs with a more swift motion available in the market.
