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?

I tried many things. But none of it solved my or suggested some answer.
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 was wondering how you could put enough pressure down on the teeth in order to cut on the smooth side. Maybe if you have a mallet or long piece of wood to press down on the teeth when you cut?
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.
I don't think any purpose holding a vegetable with the teeth side of it. I have to cut them from the bottom side of the blade. The bottom edge cuts the vegetables into pieces. It is not good even for mincing or crushing with those teeth.
Did you buy this brand new or was it purchased used with modifications made on it by someone else?
It is purchased new from the market in our city, Hyderabad. Now, I see it is available online also. Which I have mentioned below in some other comment. You can have it from amazon.com at the price of $25 ( their product is costly).
Maybe you can just remove the teeth, and use the device without the teeth in place.
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.
That sounds very logical, Rochelle, about the tenderizing.
Yes, Rochelle. I forgot to mention that fact. I thought it is obvious from the image. It is raise and vegetables placed on board and cut holding the handle. The pieces fall into the hollow depth side of the board.
