Opened up my Yoshi Blade…seemed to cut up an apple well enough.  But then I read the care instructions, which I’ve transcribed here for your reading pleasure.  Remember, this is NOT a metal blade, but a ceramic one.  Still, some of these warnings are a bit extreme…I’m kind of miffed about not using it to “chop”.

“The Yoshi Blade is for slicing only — not for chopping.”

“Use Yoshi Blade on a plastic of wood cutting board only.”

DO NOT use the Yoshi Blade or the side of the blade to chop food”

DO NOT use the Yoshi Blade to cut frozen food”

DO NOT use the Yoshi Blade to cut hard cheeses”

DO NOT use the Yoshi Blade for carving poultry or meat with bones”

DO NOT cut on ceramic plates, marble, stone, glass or tile”

DO NOT bend, twist, pry or apply force on the tip or side of the blade.”

DO NOT use Yoshi blade to smash garlic or other foods with the side of the blade”

DO NOT place Yoshi Blade in or near open flame or heat source, as ceramic blade will get hot”

“Yoshi Blade is NOT dishwasher safe. Hand wash only in warm water with mild soap”

NEVER let the Yoshi Blade soak in water for any period of time.”
