Slice a Bagel - Not Yourself!
When we teach in person bagel classes we spend some time teaching people how to slice a bagel safely. Someone told me that the most common reason for an emergency room visit weekend mornings is when people hurt themselves cutting a bagel. According to Freakonomics, bagel injuries are the 5th most dangerous kitchen activity!
It recently happened to a friend on the west coast, so we realized it was TIME TO DO SOMETHING! We could have started a bagel slicing service, or we could have put together a video on the subject. Of course, we put together a video.
You don't need special tools or bagel guiolotines to safely slice a bagel, just a good knife and some common sense! Bagel cuts? Don't let that happen to you!
