Deglon Finger Guard Digiclass
If your knife skills are not quite up to par, you might just want to check out the newest gadget to aid the less-than-confident slicer and dicer.
Given that the best tools in the kitchen are attached to the ends of your arms, many cooks want to be sure that their hands and fingers are well-protected.
Deglon, famed upscale French knife makers since the 1920′s, has created a stainless steel finger shield worn as an adjustable finger ring. Cooks simply attach the guard to their middle finger, place the bottom edge of the shield on top of the food to be sliced, position the knife against the gadget’s edge, and chop away. The device holds the food in place, thus eliminating the chance for finger slippage or skittering scallions.
The finger guard is dishwasher-safe and is of a superb welded technology designed to be a long lasting and reliable kitchen tool.
Purists may consider using the finger guard cheating, but for many cooks, any device that is well-made, speeds the plow, and builds kitchen confidence is worth it. The Deglon shield sells for $9.95 and is sure to keep fingers firmly attached.
