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.

  1. i'm a fan of knives. less clutter. why buy a gadget that only does one thing?

    1. 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.

      1. works great, but don't put in the dishwasher

        1. 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
