Banana Slicer Oats

When I was in NYC last weekend, during my visit to the Chelsea Market I picked up a new little kitchen appliance.

Behold, the Banana Slicer!

I forget whose blog I saw this thing on, but I knew if I ever saw one, I would have to pick it up for myself! I was so excited when I saw one in this random kitchen appliance store!

I swear, this might be one of the most unnecessary kitchen gadgets I have ever seen, but I am sort of in love with it.

If you aren’t sure of the whole concept of the banana slicer, all you do it put the banana down, put the slicer over top and push down.

It made perfectly even banana slices in seconds!

This is the part where you go <OoOoOohh> and <AhHhHhHh> because you are so impressed by this creation!

You know you need a perfect, evenly sliced banana in your life!

After getting overly excited about my new gadget, I knew I had to put my perfect slices to good use!

What do you get when you have Banana + Oats = Banana Oats!

Make oats as you normally would and then add your perfectly sliced banana into the mix! I usually add half a banana to my nanner oats, but this time I just put that whole bad boy in there!

I completed my banana oats creation with some fresh strawberries and some peanut butter smack dab in the middle for good measure!

Do you have a favorite (but possibly completely unnecessary) kitchen gadget? 

I saw this strawberry huller the other day and totally added it to my registry. Unnecessary? Maybe. But cute? Totally!

    I don't know how you have lived the past 25 years without a banana slicer…. for that matter how am I surviving without one?

    Late to comment, but I have a cherry pitter for my useless appliance. It actually is useful though if you are making fruit salad and want to de-pit cherries quickly or don't feel like spitting out pits!
