Comments: Does it do just what it says it will do? Yes, it does – it cuts lettuce. Do you need a special implement to cut lettuce? Many make do, and many tear their lettuce to have rougher edges for dressing to cling to. But for those who cut lettuce with a metal knife and are troubled by brown edges on the lettuce, this plastic blade does the trick.

But, wait, there's more! It can also be used to cut things (like brownies) in a nonstick pan without damaging the pan. It's also great for working with children in the kitchen, as it does not pose the same threat as a sharp metal knife.

And you thought this was a one-trick pony….
