Does anyone know if those slicers actually work? If you've ever sliced a tomato, you know you need something rather sharp, elsewise the tomato kind of gets smushed. And from the picture, that slicer does NOT look sharp.

Looks like "slicer" is a misnomer in this case, they are more of a guide. You put the tomato in the slicer to hold it then use a knife to slice through it. Fark's looking out for us, allowing us to keep our full complement of digits.

I've had four of these for three years. The same four. No rotting, no falling. I also got the plant hanger made for them. I grow cherry and grape tomatoes on the deck right outside the kitchen door. I went with these so I could have them on the deck and not have the dang cats laying all over them. Note: These are semi-feral cats that I'd normally shoot on sight but they do keep the rodents, snakes and bugs down, so we lay down just enough cat kibble to keep them hanging around.
Yep they are heavy, damn heavy, when fully loaded. I use half potting soil and half compost, water them daily when I feed the animals and harvest a ton of salad tomatoes. They haven't rotted or fallen and used correctly, produce well even when the plants get leggy in the fall.
When the season is done, usually October,I clean them out and store them in the shed.
