  • Does anyone know of a good device to use for chopping vegetables?

    I have chopped bell peppers, mushrooms, and onions in my omelet every morning and it takes me a while to chop all of them. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with any devices that would do a good chopping job? Like the slap chop or the ultimate chopper or something? I bought an inexpensive chopper from Target I think and it sucked.

    Thanks!

    I use a knife... it's a crappy knife but it serves me well :-)

      Are you taking the time to chop every single morning? I chop all my omelet veggies on Sundays for the week par cook them, and I'm good to go.

        Chop it all up the weekend before, put it in a baggie, use it straight from the baggie during the week.

          I've bought a few, and have never been satisfied. Learning to use a knife skillfully has been the thing that worked the best and fastest.

            I also chop everything over the weekend then use them throughout the week... ... well... for zucchini I usually cut julienne or sliced...but that can easily be turned to diced if the moment requires...

              That's what I do; I chop them all at once with a knife and keep them in a bag in the fridge. I was just wondering if there was a quicker/easier way...

                    I absolutely adore my global knife, and I love my Japanese mandolin slicer.

                        I had one of those vegetable chop & measure... pain in the ass to use and pain in the ass to clean! YMMV :-)

                          Wow I loved the slapchop commercial haha! Never heard of that kind of thing before, but it DID look useful and that guy was so energetic... I should probably go to sleep..

                              A decent knife. I have a large one with a slightly curved blade, that rocks against the board. Works well. Tried a load of gadgets but they are always a PITA to clean up and some of them send bits flying everywhere. A good knife, and improve your knife skills. (Watch the pros). Struth, veggies for one doesn't take that long. A minute or two.
