Ergonomic Pizza Slicers

Aerospace Engineer Designs the Midnight Slice to Ergonomically Slice Pizza

— May 21, 2021 — Lifestyle
Aerospace Engineer Michael Chou designed the Midnight Slice, an ergonomic pizza slicer. Designer of the ergonomic ice cream scoop called the Midnight Scoop, Chou's new product is a huge success on Kickstarter.

The designer, known for his redesigning of humdrum objects, aims to advance the way kitchen tools are made. This pizza slicer boasts a sleek design that allows users to push through food using larger muscles in the chest, rather than weaker wrist muscles. It includes only three parts: the ergonomic handle, the sharp cutting wheel, and the wheel-tightened screw.

The handle features grooves for an easy grip and weighs 10.9 0z to facilitate seamless slicing. The Midnight Slice cuts through all kinds of food and is completely dishwasher safe.
