The BLACK+DECKER 9-Inch Electric Carving Knife, Black, EK500B is designed with safety in mind. The electric knife includes a safety switch that needs to be pressed in order for the motor to work. Not a single reviewer admitted to cutting themselves which is a testament to the safety functions. BLACK+DECKER made this electric carving knife to be sharp. It carves through roasts and turkeys with easy, but reviewers also used to knife to slice bread and even packing foam. Everyone was impressed by how cleanly the knife sliced through these crumbly materials without leaving behind a mess. The electric motor created accurate and clean slices.

Reviewer's biggest problem with the BLACK+DECKER 9-Inch Electric Carving Knife, Black, EK500B was the safety trigger. They appreciated the attempt for safety, but the trigger was awkward to use. Some had to use both hands to hold the trigger while running the motor and carving all at the same time.

In the end this was a simple matter of a learning curve. Once users became accustomed to how the BLACK+DECKER 9-Inch Electric Carving Knife, Black, EK500B operates, the electric carving knife became intuitive to use and a reliable tool.

The knife sliced the bread with ease, and the bread slices turned out nice and thin.

The safety switch must be squeezed in one direction while you're simultaneously squeezing the blade trigger....making one handed continuous operation impossible. It locks up again any time you let go of the trigger.

I bought this to cut a 3-inch memory foam mattress bought pollen masks thinking it'd blow all over the place in spite of reviews that said it cuts like butter.
