Too many years ago, I used to run across an informercial for the Super-Slicer. I think the major cash outlay was for the items to be sliced. The demonstrator was a man with strong new Jersey/New York type accent. For 30 minutes he demonstrated how to slice things and arrange the slices attractively on a plate. That was basically like a spread deck of cards. Little variation. As a bonus (!)the buyer would get a plastic tool to slice into things like radishes or oranges; it would also peel them. These could then be used to garnish a platter.

I used to catch this now and then, very late on Saturday nights. Kept waiting for Gallagher to show up with the Sledgomatic and Patented Pans. It was that cheesy.

It was wonderful to see the Wilkins Coffee and Esskay ads again. I'm from Baltimore and have vague memories of them. My mother said that I used to watch Kermit do the weather segment on WTTG, an even vaguer memory.
It's hard to believe that I've been a Muppet fan for over 50 years.
