In July of 1928, the world experienced the event to which every other scientific accomplishment is compared. Pre-sliced bread first appeared on store shelves and marked a key step in the mechanization of daily life.

Iowa-born jeweler Otto Frederick Rohwedder invented a crude prototype of his bread slicer in 1912, but a series of problems, including a fire that destroyed his blueprints as well as the prototype, prevented him from refining the design and building a working model until 1928.

Thanks for interesting factoid. The summer camp I went to had a slicer in the kitchen. Since I bake 2 loaves a week in the Zojirushi, I have often wondered what happened to it grin2

Sliced chicken is really a good thing.

Pre-sliced bread pretty much means its not good bread though... Most of the time my wife bakes bread and with a good bread knife its not a big deal to slice it, plus you customize the thickness for each kids sandwich.

I could never slice homemade bread thin enough. But I certainly prefer it.

I can't draw a straight line, much less cut one. yeah, I can get something to guide the knife. At the moment, it's just easier to buy a loaf of bread.

Sliced bread is nasty bread, I usually stay away from it.
I very much prefer slicing my own baked bread with a knife as I needed, fresh and more satisfying, like changing your own oil...

...kneading the bread? (hand made bread... is going to be a work out better then your bike...)
my ultimate creation was french baguettes on a Saturday morning....

you can think of as training for christmas decorations....

...and anybody complaining about straight lines, "...remember about how the settlers lived" ?

I see from time to time bread slicing guides at the local thrift store. I myself like bread on the thick side. Have a 50 plus year old toaster and it can digest a slice about 3/4 inch or just throw them in the toaster oven buttered for a real treat. The flavor of toasting the bread with the butter is great, especially with some home made raspberry jam
