This machine has three buttons for thick, medium, and thin slices.

Granted, when slicing at home (regardless of whether you're using a machine or a knife), you have even finer control, and can even cut slices of varying thickness from the same loaf.

For real, we don't put up with that silly shit – you'd be ousted and making a national apology faster than a dildo hitting an MP's face on Newshub...

But seriously, I once went to America and had the weirdest experience the first time I ever stepped foot in a Walmart – this old dude in a long trench coat was getting escorted out by the security screaming all types of nonsensical jibberish. I had only just made it about ten meters through the front doors as they pulled him past me, so naturally, I pull out the popcorn.

Just before they toss him out, he suddenly breaks free, rips off his coat, then runs fully naked around the front of the store yelling at the top of his lungs like an absolute madman. The Security guards caught him again quickly and dragged him along the floor back to the entrance where the cops were waiting to meet with him.

As a Kiwi, I thought all that crazy stuff you hear about Walmart being a nuthouse was just over-exaggerated dross. Boy, was I wrong.

They really aren't.

In my general area there's 3 categories. There are the rural walmarts that carry everything from firearms to fresh fish. They used to sell live livestock but haven't done that in a while. At least not inside the store. They don't discourage it in the parkimg lot.

There is the scary walmart in the downtown city where there has been large amounts of blood on the floor both times I've been. Someone was either stabbed or spontaneously lost a pint or two. They do not sell firearms or ammo and keep their knives all locked behind the counter. We warn people about this one.

Then there are the nice walmarts. They're about half the size of the other walmarts, have slightly fresher produce and frozen food than Target, bake whole grain braided things and use a green/blue color scheme instead of the blue/white.

Honest question, does freshly sliced bread taste much different than pre-sliced?

u/Strifethor 7d ago edited 7d ago

Bread that is not pre sliced avoids either preservatives or early oxidation. It stays nice and moist until the time it’s cut and up until about 2 days after

161

u/LeonidasSpacemanMD 7d ago

Yea, I was just thinking this is nice if you’re going to use a lot of this bread today. But I prefer to cut as I use the bread so it takes longer to get stale in the middle. Maybe it’s just in my head but I feel like the ends get a bit stale but the rest stays ok, if you slice it this way it all gets stale at the same pace

139

u/NotsoNewtoGermany 7d ago

I must explain, German bread is amazing. There are over 3000 different local loafs, and every bakery knows how to make all of them. Every single time I come back from Germany, as I live in NL, even from the supermarket, the bread is so freshly baked and fantastic, that I can't help but go through the loaf in 2 days. Egg toast with mustard for breakfast, chicken sandwiches for lunch and soup for dinner, belle I even know it 2+4+4, 10 slices of it is gone.

Seriously good stuff.

u/LeonidasSpacemanMD 7d ago

u/Monsi_ggnore 7d ago

Contrary to popular belief the foodstuff Germans care most about isn't beer, it's bread. Ask any German who comes back from a long, great vacation how it was, the answer is always the same: "it was fantastic, but the bread... :( ".

There are nations that consume more, and depending on who you ask also produce better beer, but no one comes even remotely close to Germans when it comes to making and consuming bread. The German word for dinner is literally "evening bread" (Abendbrot).

If bread is your thing then a visit may be worth it indeed.

In large parts of Europe bread is a huge part of the culture. Being norwegian I'd say it's what I continuously eat the most of in any given week. But then I also like it to be as whole-grainy as possible with a soft core and a crispy crust, which you only get if it's as fresh as possible.

german here, part of our culture as well. Most Many people eat bread twice a day, and our word for the evening meal is Abendbrot, literally 'evening bread'.

u/The_R4ke 7d ago

Bread that's been sliced will dry out faster. If you're going to use all that bread in a day or really need precise slices for something it's good to get it sliced, othewise it's best to cut off what you need when you need it for the most freshness.

This is also a particularly complex slicer. The bakery I go to uses a much simpler one that's just several sharp blades in a fixed location that slice the loaf. It probably doesn't cut it as cleanly as this does and is only one size, but I also imagine it's less likely to fail and easier to fix if it does.

More like stupid Americans that would figure out how to override the safety measures because they want their bread cut thicker or thinner.

Why is this unusual?

These machines are everywhere in European supermarkets

u/wickbrand 8d ago

They are in the US and Canada too. Not sure why so many people are amazed. Maybe they’ve never noticed it before? 😁

At Kaufland there are mostly used from my experience.. but the hygiene of the customers is.. questionable at best.

I like to go to the bakery instead

u/BeBamboocha 8d ago

Usually the modern machines already cut it all at once :P How do they do it in other countries?

u/rendezvousnz 8d ago

Yeah, Bakers Delight in NZ cut their bread for you, the machine has multiple blades and all slices are cut at once.

Lidl has disposable plastic gloves next to where you take the bag that the lady is using to pack the bread. She just didn’t take a glove.

The would be such a shitshow in the US.

A decade working customer service at a grocery store has shown me that this is why we, as Americans, can't have nice things.

That's probably why the slicer at my local store has been unavailable since covid started.
