  1. For the, the divider test were completely ruined by the knife, or even the guy holding it. You can see that, with the cuts with the protactor too.

  2. ?Darn that 1st cheesecake was hard to watch! The slicer must be rinsed under hot running water in between slices! Clean slice every time ?‍?

  3. Lmao that sliding cake slicer is so stupid. Did someone really think that the cake would slide off the surface it's resting on just because it moves forward?

  4. Simply looking at Dan trying to slice with the curved cake slicer is making me grab my palms and cringe as to how uncomfortable that must feel ?

  5. That first cake looks like it would have made a mess either way, maybe the knife was bad or something, even if you tried to cut it normally it'd still come out from the sides as you pulled your knife out from the look of it.

  6. I think the reason why these baking gadgets failed is that most of the baking utensils available lives up to high, if not perfect design. So, there's really no need to try inprovising a new way. It's just my view on the matter, but someone had to say it

  7. Dude has no clue how to use a saw. You dont push in while you saw and with something like this you want the blades slightly angled down so that it doesn’t rise up. I agree that it could be made better but you have no clue what you’re doing.

  8. Curved cake slicer: Could turn it over so the next slice is flat to flat edge. All other issues remain. Basic question is WHY? Why would anyone care for a curved slice of cake?

  9. It's like these product designers don't even test their own products lol what a frustrating group of gadgets to trial through

  10. I feel like the cake divider could be totally redesigned. Imagine something like a desk lamp, but it has a laser projector at the top. We can already make laser pointers that show lines, and different kinds of shapes. You could basically have a perfectly stationary laser show you a grid you could follow without actually touching.

  11. The cake divider could easily be replaced with a set of pronged wires. Even if there were seven or eight pieces (one for each number) the required storage space would be roughly the same. Alongside this, the reduced bulk and lack of moving parts would make it less destructive to the cake itself. As it is, the product is 100 times more complicated than it needs to be. It's been overdesigned just so it can appear more gadgety and eye catching. Give me five minutes, a pair of pliers, and a box of paper clips, and I could make something that does the same thing but better.

  12. "I'm in a bit of pain"

    YOU PUT A DAMN CLOTH UNDER THE HANDLE. Also, the whole " the edges don't work because they're different" is solved by "FLIPPING THE CURVED SLICER AROUND". Christ
