Kitchen DIY: Use an Egg Slicer to Slice Strawberries

Kitchen DIY: Egg Slicer as Strawberry Dicer

Buy at Amazon

This is an easy tip that is pretty self evident.  I sometimes have to cut up strawberries into slices.  Most often for my brandied strawberries.  I don’t like doing it, so I use an egg slicer to slice strawberries.

The process is stupidly simple, and it takes no time at all to do.  However, a strawberry is a little harder to slice than an egg, so you may want to stay away from the cheapest level of egg slicers.

I like an all metal version like the one pictured.  I find they are just a little stronger and cut more uniform slices of strawberries.

I also like to use firm ripe strawberries.  If they are overripe or too soft they will tend to smash and smoosh rather than slice cleanly.  I hate when that happens and I get threads of strawberries hanging off of the slicer.

It may also help is you take out the center stem before you slice them.  I have a video on how to do that using a straw.

I hope this tip to use an egg slicer to slice strawberries works well for you.  I know I use it whenever I need sliced strawberries.
