I also slice mushrooms with my egg slicer.  Just be sure the 
mushrooms  are not too large.

When I use my egg slicer I not only slice the egg in one 
direction but also
in  a half turn other direction to achieve something that looks 
like egg
sticks I use this especially if I am making egg salad or place 
chopped eggs
in my salad.

After awhile, the wire in the cheese slicer stretches! Or 
eventually breaks
with heavy use! It works best for softer types of cheese, and 
stresses the
string when you attempt slicing harder types of cheese.  I did 
not know about
leaving that egg slicer shut and gathering up the little slices.  
It also
works good for slicing cheese and strawberries, such cute! 
Little! Slices!
I guess those wires also could break after years and years of 
use!! One
thing that I have learned is that nothing is forever!

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.

I downloaded 2 books of recipes for the George Foreman grill, in 
brf
format, from

 www.nbp.org

 quite some time ago, thinking they would be good for other
 applications,
 and out of interest.  You have to purchase them.  I don't know 
if they
 still are available, but you might check.  They are excellent.  
The reason

 I mention them is that I now have a George Foreman indoor grill, 
which I
 really am liking more and more as I use it.

 Other gadgets I like, if you can call them gadgets, are an 
outdoor
 electric smoker that is also a grill, the microwave oven, a 
safety deep
 fryer that has a locking lid that you raise and lower the 
baskets of food
 from the outside so you don't have to worry about the hot oil, a 
Hamilton
 Beach big mouth food processor, and an electric meat slicer.  
Those are
 the big items.  Small ones, and this might be more of what 
you're asking
 about, are a hand held cheese slicer that uses a stiff thin wire 
to cut
 the cheese.  It has a thumb screw for adjusting the slice 
thickness
 between the wire and the roller that travels along the block of 
cheese.  A

 talking kitchen scale for measuring to within a tenth of an 
ounce, up to
 11 pounds, a talking meat thermometer, flame retardant oven 
mitts, and, of

 course, measuring spoons and cups.  There is a measuring device 
that I am
 looking for, but cannot currently find.  It is sort of like a 
big surringe

 that you stick down into liquid and pull up on the plunger to 
fill.  It
 dispenses 1 tablespoon of liquid.  If anyone knows of where I 
can find one

 of these, thanks in advance.

 Hi everyone,

 I'd like to know what cookbooks and cooking gadgets you find the 
most
 helpful.  If you'd rather write me off list, that's ok.

 Thanks in advance,

 Nancy Martin
