Do you use a mezzaluna?

Kagey | Nov 10, 2006 11:24 AM

I was thinking of posting this on the "useless clutter" thread, but I'm not sure yet.

I got a mezzaluna as a gift recently, and used it to chop some parsley and garlic. It worked ok, but I still felt I could do better and faster with a knife. I also felt a bit awkward with the way it moves. It also seemed quite sharp, but still the parsley looked kind of crushed, and not as cleanly chopped as when I use the knife.

I'm not giving up yet. But I wonder if any of you hounds use a mezzaluna, and why you might or might not prefer it in some situations...
