plastic lettuce knives

are these really good as they say on the tin, ie by not making a lettuce go brown at the edges?

for some time i have known not to cut lettuce as it makes the edges go brown, rather to rip the leaves of, but then i chop up for "plating".

am just wondering if those plastic sort of knives sold in lakeland really do work and do what they say, and what other uses those knives have, ie are they sharp enough and good enough for slicing cucumbers and tomatoes?

Sam, I have two of these knives, one slightly bigger & I always use them esp for Hearts of Romaine for Caesar salad. I prefer to use a sharper, slightly serrated knife for other things.

Yes they do work but like Elpe, I prefer to use a serrated knife for other things. One fab use though is for cutting up brownies or tray bakes without scratching the baking tin.

Yes they do work, but you don't have to go to the expense of buying one specially.

Some fast-food outlets, cheap coffee shops & outside catering events nearly always use the small white plastic knives with a serrated edge which work perfectly well. They don't last very long, but I just collect & save them & use as needed.

Work for me!

I concur that the best use for them is cutting cakes or lasagnes and the like in their tins trays without them scratching the tins etc!!

Would it just not be an bit more environmentally friendly to spend four quid and get a permanent one?

" Still, most of us get more than enough nutrition judging from the number of invalid vehicles on the pavements, where the 'invalid' seems to be suffering from nothing but a surfeit of nutrition."

Not really sure thats anything to do with the topic......

I'd say commenting on people in invalid cars and their weight is way off the subject of a plastic knife to cut lettuce..... No one mentioned nutrition apart from yourself, for you only to say you think there are too many fat people in invalid cars....

Its just confrontational.

I have just shredded some lettuce with a cheap plastic 'throw away' knife and it worked better than my lettuce knife from Lakeland.
Surely more environmentally friendly due to getting extended use from it.
I wouldn't buy again.

Ah, cool, lets forget it. Its hard to get a feel of the tone when reading the written word. :)
