A couple of weeks ago YumSugar pointed out that you can use an egg slicer to cut more than just a perfectly hard boiled egg. She recommended using it for slicing strawberries or mushrooms, but forgot to mention my favorite use for this wonderful multi-tasking tool: cutting fresh mozzarella for caprese salads. Fresh mozzarella is quite soft, making it difficult to slice with a knife, but with an egg slicer all you have to do is separate the cheese into pieces.
