The SAFE way to cut lettuce!

I hope you will share!

I just have to share this because I am the QUEEN of cutting the tip of my thumb almost every time I cut lettuce. I cut lettuce almost daily in our house and my poor left thumb tip pretty much has not feeling left in it. I tried to take a picture of it, but it is hard to see. If you can you can see a little white spot on it and that is where I about cut the whole tip of.

This is the clearest close up pic I could get.

Anyway…you may be laughing at me and saying “seriously Tawna why are you posting this? Well…I found the most awesome lettuce cutter and it does not hurt or draw blood when I cut myself and I figured I can’t be the only one that does this. I just happened to run into this int he grocery store a few months back and knew I HAD to have it. Here it is

How awesome is this? I am serious I love it. I don’t even know what it is called but it is plastic! I am pretty sure the company should call this the “Tawna cutter” because my husband has had blood free salad for awhile now and that makes me happy!

It really does work well for lettuce too. The other plus is that the salad does not turn brown as fast because you are not touching the lettuce with metal. When you use a regular knife something happens that causes the metal knife to make the salad turn brown faster. I believe this was only like $3. This is probably the best $3 I have ever spent!

If anyone knows what the knife is actually called leave it in a comment! I found it on amazon and posted the link! It’s called a “lettuce knife” novel idea!

    I found mine at our local grocery. it was pretty much the same price as the one I posted form amazon (minus the shipping). I let my daughter use this knife too when I am using a real one. It makes her feel like she is doig the same thing as me.

    I wish that would last (the kids wanting to be jsut like us) but I know it will pass iwth age!

  2. heya tawna,

    i think i saw this kind of plastic knife being used in the 'Junior master chef Australia' program, for safety purposes i suppose & i think it's cool. i would like to find something like it for my son since he likes helping me out in the kitchen but i wouldn't let him use the normal knife…so he uses those butter knives instead! ;P
