    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.

    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.
