Have you ever tried slicing a fresh loaf of bread and ended up with crooked slices and uneven crumbs?
Yup, you’re not alone.
Sure, slicing bread is not THAT hard. It can be easily done with a manual bread slicer or serrated bread knife. However, being able to slice it evenly and beautifully is a whole new ball game altogether.
Even when using a manual bread slicer to mark the thickness, paired with a sharp bread knife, cutting a loaf by hand often results in bread slices with uneven thickness.
Worse still, if we apply too much pressure whilst trying to prevent the bread loaf from moving around, we may end up smooshing and deforming the shape of the loaf.
There’s nothing quite like having a freshly baked loaf of bread… only to end up in uneven slices when trying to slice it up. That’s one part of the experience that can be frustrating to say the least.
What’s even more frustrating is having the bread dry out faster than we would like.
Why Do Uneven, Jagged Bread Slices Dry Out Faster?
Did you know the more jagged and uneven the bread slices are, the faster the surface will dry out? This is because jagged and uneven bread slices have more exposed surface area if compared to smooth, evenly sliced bread. This means that there is more surface area for moisture to evaporate from, which can lead to the bread drying out faster.
Furthermore, the ragged edges of the bread slices can trap air pockets, which can also contribute to moisture loss. When air gets trapped between the bread slices, it can create a barrier that prevents moisture from moving freely through the bread. This can lead to the bread drying out on the surface even if the interior of the bread is still moist.
This is definitely not an ideal situation for bakeries but fret not as we have got a solution for you.

Manual VS Bread Slicer: Check out the Difference
We bet you can tell which bread slice is cut manually, and which is sliced using the Hakura Seiki AT700Z bread slicer. Let’s take a closer, zoomed in look:
- USING AT700Z (L): The thickness of the slice is even, and the cross section is clean and neat.
- USING BREAD KNIFE (R): Uneven thickness, slightly thicker on the ends, with jagged edges.
The difference is not just on the aesthetic part; the unevenness also affects the overall texture. The jagged edges will create a rougher and more uneven surface, which can make the bread feel drier and more crumbly.
The edges may even catch on the tongue or teeth, which can be unpleasant. Sliced bread with smooth, even edges will improve the texture and mouthfeel of the bread, also making it more enjoyable to eat.
When loaves are sliced using the AT700Z, not only does your bread look well-presented, even your customers get to enjoy them softer and fresher for longer! Don't let a low quality bread slicer ruin your perfect loaf of bread! ;)
