In the test kitchen, we love the sturdy, affordable OXO Good Grips Egg Slicer ($10). The base cradles the egg in either direction, so you can get oblong or round slices.

Strawberries

Put hulled strawberries in the slicer to speed up prep for your next batch of shortcakes. Or add slices to a spinach salad with goat cheese.

Mozzarella

Putting together a caprese salad? Spare yourself wrangling with slippery fresh mozzarella and get perfectly even slices with an egg slicer.

Kiwis

Peel a kiwi, nestle that perfectly egg-shaped fruit in the slicer, and then slice away for pretty rounds to top tarts or add to fruit salads.

Mushrooms

Save some cash by skipping presliced mushrooms and putting trimmed button or cremini mushrooms in the egg slicer.
