We are planning a trip on an airplane from Canada. We wanted to know if we could bring fruit aboard, and went to a government of Canada website that explained that we could. However, on the same website there is also this line, that seems to me completely counter to what I think people do on planes:
If you plan to prep your food on the go, keep in mind that small kitchen appliances with blades 6 cm or less (e.g. personal/hand-held blenders, coffee grinders, cheese slicers) are permitted in carry-on baggage.
Website is here: GC guidelines
What does it possibly mean? Why wouldn't the blades of such things be not allowed on a plane, and would someone really bring, say, a blender or a cheese slicer and prepare food on a plane?
