It also works on cheese and is the right shape for roma tomatoes. I have to peel the tomatoes first since it doesn't cut through the skin very well.

It's an egg slicer. That was too easy.

This is a hard boiled egg slicer, without a doubt and it still works great!

It's a hard boiled egg slicer. They used to have "infomercials" advertising them on television.

Rounded would make it a mushroom slicer.

Mine is an egg slicer from the mid 60's. Does not say Presto. Base is completely round.
