I came across a pin the other day that suggested cutting bread upside down to help eliminate loaf flattening while slicing. I can’t find the original pin but I think you get the idea. Here’s my attempt at using this trick:
Maybe it’s because I had fairly sturdy bread, but I didn’t notice a difference right-side-up or up-side-down when it comes to flattening the bread. However I did find that cutting it upside down helped me make equally sized slices. So overall I think I will use this trick again.
