      ITA on the 'developing good knife skills'. It really does change everything about cooking....for the better.

      And for the knife: a 6" and 8" Wustof or similar chef's knife simply cannot be outdone.

      This is an excellent, inexpensive sharpener ($10)

      And this is a phenominal, very expensive sharpener:

      I was actually at amazon, ready to pull the trigger on the $$ one when I saw the cheap on with it's amazing number of positive reviews. Instead of dropping $170, I spend $10 and have been very very happy.

      I'd also recommend a Cuisinart Food Processor...at least 11-c but preferably 14c. It's much better than any other FP on the market (though the kitchenaid ones will 'do') and it makes chopping veggies a breeze. I use mine nearly every day.

      I keep meaning to get a very nice mandoline slicer as well.

        I've tried a lot of those chopping gadgets. The result is that I bought a nice knife and a better hone-- and put the gadgets in the trash. A good, sharp knife is really the only tool you'd need for those tasks.

          I buy the fire-roasted fajita veg from Trader Joe's - peppers & onions already rough-chopped and fired. I keep it in the freezer & pull out what I want & chop smaller if I want before putting it in the food.

            I use me dremel for everything. It really is the all purpose tool. If you're looking for a good tool, I suggest a dremel.

              I'm fairly surprised you haven't found a way to chop vegetables using a potato... but I suppose the potato could be the dremel bit couldn't it... ?

                I use a 10"santoku, 3" santoku, 18" slicer, or 10" slighly curved chef's knife for all my chopping. A cheapie chicago cutlery paring knife does all my detail work.

                  wait...what?

                  chopping vegetables?

                  I would never use my dremel for that.

                  I just use a knife.

                  Or the food processor if it's going to be more than 5lbs. worth.

                        I use an ulu and a cutting board with a "bowl" scooped out of it. I also have an old wooden Japanese mandolin. I only chop in quantity ahead of time for stews, soups, etc. If it is to be eaten in salads, I prepare it fresh.

                          I use my food processor with the S hook at least twice per day..dump in a ton of raw veggies and use for whatever I'm using them for..mere seconds....although, that being said I do have them pre-washed and broken into large chunks already...then , those chunks go in for a quick pulse or two.... I couldn't live without my food processor... ;-) I eat WAY WAY more vegetables when they are teeny tiny.....

                            The Large Hadron Collider was actually built to turn my vegetables into subatomic particles for easier digestion.

                            Best investment I ever made. The only downside is the chance I could create a black hole, but my nutrient absorption ratios are much more important at the moment.
