As Seen On TV - OneTouch Cordless Electric Knife

We've tested the OneTouch Can Opener and the OneTouch Jar Opener. Well, this week we're testing the OneTouch Cordless Electric Knife.

Could the turbo-charged kitchen tool make quick work of our food items? Or would it be slow to make the cut?

The big selling point of the OneTouch is that it's relatively compact, should fit into a drawer, the blades are machine wash safe, and there's no cord so you're not encumbered walking around the kitchen when you have to cut stuff.

The manufacturer says this is a turbocharged cutting tool -- two thousand blade strokes per minute -- and can go through a variety of different food items including vegetables, meats and bread.

How about a tomato? Those are always kind of hard to cut; you don't want to end up crushing them.

Well, it wasn't like cutting through butter. You had to put a little force behind it, but it did a very nice job cutting the tomatoes -- didn't gouge them at all. So far, so good.

How about some ham? What if I want to take the skin off? How would that work -- filleting the ham, so to speak?

Now, how about a hard loaf of bread?

Well, as you saw, by the time we got to the bread the one touch was struggling a bit because I think the batteries were running down. So, my word of caution is if you buy one of these be prepared to maybe use more batteries than you like. And because of that we're going to give it the thumbs up, although not an enthusiastic thumbs ups.

The OneTouch Cordless Knife uses six AA batteries, not included. I suggest buying some rechargeable AA's.

I paid $20 for my OneTouch at Walgreens. You can find them at many stores and all over the Internet.
