Thanks for finding that.
Maybe it was a stray thought...

In either case it was in the wrong thread

BTW, I remembered what I wanted a melon baller for...
For when I made those Baltimore coddies that you eat on a saltine.

Okay, next time you want to buy a melon baller and can't remember why, ask us or do an advanced search for "melon baller" and that was posted by you.

hmmm, advanced search...
I did an Advanced Search this morning for that bean recipe. I used my name (of course) and the words: bean hole beans. How much more direct can you get? I think I got 11 pages of crap. The AS doesn't appear to be as effective as it once was.
So I'll just ask you what I wanted a melon baller for if I forget again

The sharper the better to slice, right? I regularly sharpen my 4" Henkels Zwilling paring knife since I use it for practically everything. I'm a bit clumsy with cutlery and a bigger knife can cause problems. Anyway, I use that knife for slicing/chopping tomatoes and cutting up eggs - all without smashing a thing.

I saw that post. I just figured you were high on bacon.

Out of all tomato slicers that I have ever seen on the market the only one that works is a commercial food processor and cost probably in the area of 5 to 15K, depending on how fancy you want to go. None of the store bought stuff rally works, at least not for me.

MC, I thought that looked familiar, so I rummaged through a gadget drawer, and found one exactly like it, but with a wooden handle, that I inherited from some unknown source many years ago. I had no idea what it was for.

I think my mother has one of those. She brought it with her from Soviet Union. It is probably not as old as the one MC showed. I bet it is only from early 60's.
