Its too hot to eat heavy in the summer and both my mother and I are trying to eat healthy this summer. This fruit salad gizmo has helped us keep on track with making salads and chop the salads, it also makes the perfect portions for carrying to the park for mini me's munching. A true gem. Wish I found it sooner.
Very nice little chopper , actually neither then what I thought it would be .Thas chopper comes with a removable bottom ,and makes it easier to empty the container out . I was able to chop up potatoes, cucumbers and cabbage without a problem .The only thing is if I keep using this chopper I will definitely build some muscle. You do have to apply a lot of force to chop some of the harder vegetables.
While I am scared to use a mandoline or similar device for fear of injury, this handy chopper did not instill any fear in me. It makes preparing scallions, onions, celery, and other veggies for tuna salad so much easier. I even use it for mango, with the peel side down, and then use a spoon or fork to separate the chopped fruit pieces from the skin.
Makes chopping up veggies and fruits super easy. The blades are nice and sharp...easily cuts through onions and carrots. There are four removable parts for easy washing, and the chopper has two sides that flip out to be able to access the blades for washing and cleaning. Comes with a green cover so there is protection from the blades. This tool is a kitchen must have.
I ordered this as I make my husband's lunch every day as he can not leave the job site. Anyway he like to have a salad a couple of times a week and 5:30 am comes around very early. It is so easy to add the a handful of the toppings he likes, push the handle down a couple of times and I have every thing chopped for his salad. Its nice not to have to cut each thing in the morning anymore. Very happy with this purchase.
