Meet my newest kitchen gadget. Maybe I exaggerate
a lot just a touch in the post title, but this thing is NIFTY!
It's a Tupperware Chop 'N Prep (I love my tupperware) and my kids won it at a 4-H horse show! I like the horse show prizes, the kids, not so much! See the little white handle on the top of the lid? You pull it, just like starting a weed whacker, to chop up your vegetables - chop only (no slicing, dicing or julienne-ing. I just thought that was a catchy title).
You put your vegetables in (or I guess it could be whatever kind of food you want chopped) and close the lid. It's kind of small (you get about a cup of the chopped whatever), but we'll call it fun sized. Then you pull the cord 5 or 6 or 10 times, and voila, chopped up stuff!
I chopped up cabbage for these pictures, I'm going to make egg rolls later. DD#3 made fresh salsa last night in about 5 minutes, which we scarfed down in under 5 minutes! I am also going to try chopping up a leftover grilled chicken breast to make chicken salad for lunch today. This would be a great gadget for a younger child to be able to help in the kitchen. Self-contained - no mess and no chance of chopping off your fingers! Would also be great to take camping, no electricity required.
