I've had a number of people post me messages about the bean slicer I used in the video on how to preserve runner beans.
It's from Lakeland Plastics. Here's the link the the product:
Generally I find it a useful product, the two drawbacks are that it does not often remain fixed to a work surface and its base stops you from putting a collecting tray or plate conveniently below the blades. You can get an idea from the photo below of David chopping beans.
Nevertheless, I would recommend it, especially if you grow lots of runner beans. It does make the job of dealing with large quantities much easier. It's currently selling at £19.77.
And to illustrate the point.....
And just because I feel very proud of my runner bean crop this year!:
