The Knife Glider from Brilliant Inventors LLC is now rolling out. The product is a plastic shield that protects the user’s hand and makes slicing and chopping easier and safer, the company said.
The transparent plastic gadget is said to fit any size knife and is BPA-free and dishwasher safe.
“It all started when my wife Jennifer, who is an experienced cook, had to go to the hospital for stitches after a kitchen accident,” said inventor-owner Samuel Shipp. “After that experience, Jennifer and I developed a product that’s safe and easy to use with either hand, snaps together to keep attachments from getting lost, and folds to fit easily in the knife drawer.”
Made in the U.S.A., the Knife Glider kit comes with attachments and has an SRP of $19.99. The Knife Glider was originally funded via a campaign on the crowd-funding site Indiegogo and is now available at Amazon and Ebay. In addition, the Knife Glider will also soon be sold on The Grommet.
