This is the third one of these I have bought. Not because they break but when I lend it to someone it seems to get lost! It is a really good tool which tops and tails the beans and then you can cut them into slices of just the right thickness with the stringy bits falling away from the sides of the cutter. It is easy to use its only problem being it doesn't deal well with thick old beans or with really bent ones but for all that I wouldn't be without it in my kitchen.

This gadget is okay but I am not sure it adds a huge amount of utility to what I would deem the traditional type of slicer that my mum used to use.

It features a blade at the top, which enables you to chop the ends off of the beans. The beans are then passed through a sliding spacer into more blades that both strip the edges from the bean as it passes through and cuts it into strips as you do so. If the bean is stringy or too wide, it won't go through the mechanism - the traditional slicers stop stringy beans but are able to cope with larger beans than this slicer.

I found it a little tricky to use initially, but I soon got the hang of it and I ended up with nicely chopped beans in a short amount of time. I suppose the integral blade to remove the ends helps speed up the process, but you can achieve much the same using a knife (it just takes a bit more time) and I never was all that bothered about removing the edges. I suppose it is okay, but I'm sentimental and would prefer to use my mum's traditional slicer instead - if I hadn't given it to my sister.

This bean slicer has to be the best invention. It's a pleasure to use and vey efficient too. The stringy bits fly out at the sides for easy removal, leaving lovely long spaghetti strands of ready to cook bean. I would not reccomend this for pods with huge beans inside, but you probably wouldn't want to eat such a mature bean anyway.

I have owned one of these for many, many years and have just had to replace my original which finally disintegrated. It's a brilliant device for preparing runner beans - simple and efficient, it leaves you with perfectly sliced beans with the strings removed. I wouldn't be without one, and I'd recommend it very warmly.

This product makes stringing & slicing runner beans a doddle. I've used other beans slicers and the job is long and laborious, & they never actually do a great job as you have to trim & slice the sides off the beans before running them through the slicers. The Krisk bean slicer does everything with a blade at the top to top & tail the beans before running them through the sharp slicer, which strings them as you slice, no need to have an knife handy & keep putting down one thing & picking up another to finish the job.
