    Question Question for scientists on CF

    What is the physical and/or chemical property inherent in a sandwich that makes it undeniably tastier when cut diagonally?

    Trick question: As long as the sandwich is made by a woman, it will always taste undeniably tasty.

    Cutting it diagonally exposes more of the tasty toppings/fillings on the inside and in turn it will create a more satisfying bite with high expectations.

    I believe cutting diagonally creates 2 triangles which is a much stronger sandwich structure than a rectangle. This leads to better much more enjoyable sandwich experience.

    Re: Question for scientists on CF

    While Fitzy speaks the truth, I point to this out:

    D x S = TS
    W x S = TS
    W + D = M
    then it comes to reason that
    M x S = SS

    Key:
    D=Diagonal Cut
    S=Sandwich
    TS=Tasty Sandwich
    W=Woman
    M=Mom
    SS=Superior Sandwich

    Diagonal cut also decreases the crust:no-crust ratio of each sandwich halve, which some might find more appealing.

    Exactly what I was going to post. Great minds think alike.

    Cutting diagonally creates unique sheer stresses in the bread while cutting which release flavor-enhancing peptides. The exact source of the peptides is unknown but they are believed to be related to transglutaminase enzyme which is added to the flour to improve the liquid-holding capacity and elasticity of the dough.

    It's a myth perpetuated by those companies that sell the diagonal sandwich cutting jigs.

    Wrong, you just don't have the right one. Pay the extra money for the organic sandwich cutting jig. It will change your life.

    By cutting the sandwich in half, you nearly double the surface area of the sandwich, thus vastly increasing the surface area per volume ratio of each individual sandwich.

    When my nephew was young you better cut it into what he called "sticks and triangles" or he flipped out.
    2 thin slices and then a diagonal cut across what was left.
