If you're someone who struggles to slice a good, even piece of bread, you've probably thought, "there's got to be a better way to do this." And you know what, there is! While you can always buy presliced bread at the grocery store or get a pricey electric slicer, there's an easier way to get uniform slices at home. There are tons of manual bread slicers out there that can help you evenly carve through the dense, tough crust, and we've rounded up the top picks for 2024 below.

Yes, bread slicers exist, and we aren't just talking about those guillotines that effortlessly slide through even the most dense of bagels. No, these are bread slicers that'll transform the way you chisel your way through bread, often built with tough wood and equally spaced slots -- wide enough for a bread knife -- that'll guarantee identical bread slices. 

Below are some of our favorites that you can buy right now. Whether you're prepping large batches of french toast or grilled cheese, or you simply need a bevy of equal-size slices (we get it, symmetry is important), these are sure to do the trick.

Norpro bread slicer with crumb catcher

This bread slicer is split into two parts: a wooden box topped with slats to catch crumbs, and acrylic sliding guides drilled into the wood to ease your chopping woes. The sliding guides ensure uniform slices, and once you're done, you can easily dump out crumbs and any other mess.

French bread server, slicer and display tray

This smart bread slicer acts as both a display tray and a slicer, built to look like a small table. It'll really only work with baguettes and other skinny breads, as it's narrow and long. Just slide your bread into the tray and slice hunks from the knife slot at the tip of the tray.

America's Bread Slicer

Built in the Pacific Northwest, this bread slicer will make chopping easy. The slicer is equipped with a wide cutting surface, allowing for even bigger loaves of bread if necessary, and folds up easily -- to a height of 1.5 inches -- so it can be stored away. To use it, just rotate the knife guides to their upright position, insert the bread into the cavernous space and guide your knife through the slots.
