What is the use of these teeth in this cutter in the image?


I can't understand the use of these teeth side of the cutter. I am using this cutter since more than one year and cut vegetables from the plain edge of it. In doing so, these teeth hurt me sometimes scratching my fingers and hand. I wonder why they have put the teeth at the upper side of this cutter. Do any of you use this type of cutter?

    Your reply is somewhat reasonable. But, I didn't find any use trying that way also. Best way is to use only one side (the plain smooth side) of it and ignore the teeth side. That is what I am do. But cutting that way the teeth are top side n hurt you

    I never tried slicing of cheese or bread with it. I use a small knife for those items.

    That was my first thought. You could jam a head of lettuce or a cabbage down on it, but I'm sure that's not right.

    OK-- Now I am getting the idea that the handle of the blade raises and lowers, like a paper cutter. I think the 'tooth side" might be for tenderising meat-- and you probably do not eat meat.
