My sister-in-laws raved about this little kitchen tool, saying that it was amazing and that it worked just as well as they said it did on TV....well, I am a huge pessimist when it comes to the supposed latest and greatest from late-night infomercials.
But this little chopper has earned my full and complete respect...they insisted that it was worth the $20 so I headed to Target and picked one up a while back. Seeing as how I tend to have problems with sharp knives and graters, I figured if this thing really worked, I could save myself quite a bit of blood loss and steer clear of a few more scars.
I used mine for the first time last night to chop potatoes, carrots and onions....and it was amazing!!! It worked just as well as it does on the commercials and it cut my prep time down by probably a half hour, if not more...AND I didn't have to worry about cutting myself...YAY!!!
It made all the veggies look all neat and pretty, and made it so much more enjoyable to prepare a meal without all the tedious chopping. I chopped a whole bag of carrots, about 4 pounds of potatoes and an onion in a matter of 2 or 3 minutes (after I peeled them of course...where's the miracle machine for that??).
Anyways, if you have ever seen the commercial for this little gadget and wondered if it really was as good as it sounds, it is!!! So head to your closest Target and pick it up off the ever popular "As Seen on TV" shelf that is in the middle of the store...but resist the urge to pick up any of the other infomercial rejects there, you'll probably only be disappointed!!
Unless...any of you have any great "As Seen on TV" finds?? Go ahead, tell me about them...I promise I won't laugh that you actually bought that tube of Mighty Putty or package of Hercules Hooks if they really were worth the money!!
