Vidalia food chopper advertised on t.v.- anyone tried? [moved from General Topics]
i'm guessing that this gadget may work but that the blades'
sharpness would go -after a decent amount of use, w/ no options to sharpen. anyone have experience with one of these?
this gadget has 2 blades- one for chop; one for mince- for assorted veg's, and you pull down on the handle to push the vegetable through the crosshatched blades.
Yes a good knife is always best. However, I ordered this for my mother in law who does not see very well and should not play with sharp implements. This thing is awsome so far. I even chopped a whole tomato with PERFECT results. I also bought the mini chopper which works well also and its cute. As for the blades.... thats yet to be seen how long they stay sharp. Happy Chopping
Never seen it, but have a friend who is afraid of knives and uses chopping gadgets. Results are always poor. I'm sure I'll be getting a call from her about this too.
Nothing beats good knife skills for prep. It takes time, care, precision, yes. Results are worth it. Perhaps too many advertisers know about knife-fear, thus the glut of chopping-things?
Don't spend the money, in my opinion.
