I had one of those cheese slicers many years ago and it broke on me.  How do 
you keep it working?  I had a similar problem many years ago with one of 
those egg slicers.  But now mine is working perfectly.  No one told me when 
I first got married that you put your peeled hard-cooked egg in the little 
cup and shut the wire down on it to slice it.  Then you leave it shut and 
dump the slices into your bowl or wherever.  Never open the egg slicer back 
up with the egg slices still in it!  Boy did I learn the hard way.  It is 
just a one shot thing, put the egg in there and shut the thing once and that 
is all.  I have had this slicer for years and it is a snap when you know 
how.
It is shocking but we have about all of the things Charles mentioned.  I 
still get nervous about learning to use a new appliance until I get used to 
it and then I wonder what I ever did without it.
