I love to cook, but chopping and slicing food can take up so much time.
And as your Smart Shopper, you know I’m not going to waste cash on pre-cut foods.
So when I saw the Chop Magic I had to try it out.
It's supposed to chop, mince, cube, slice and dice your food fast and easy.
And when I saw the claim that it can chop a whole onion in one second, there was no way I could pass up trying it out.
So I grabbed onions, carrots and potatoes and started chopping.
The Chop Magic comes with two blades, a dicing blade and slicing blade.
The instructions say trim your veggies, so I cut off the outer part of the onion.
I started with the slicing blades and they went right through the onion.
The first impression is a good one.
Then I tried the dicing blade on the onion.
I pushed and pushed and pushed some more and finally got the onion diced.
It definitely took more than a second.
So we tried cutting the onion in half and still it took a whole lot of effort to dice it.
Next up are the carrots.
This time the bigger part of the carrot got stuck in the slicing blade.
A little better with the smaller end, but I want the whole carrot!
Finally the potatoes -- this time the Chop Magic did a great job. It quickly sliced and diced right through the potato.
The Chop Magic cost $19.88 at Walmart and although it worked on some items, I don't think it's worth the cash.
A better option... the Chop Wizard .
I've been using it for years and we tried it again on the same veggies and it sliced and diced with no problem.
It'll cost you about $20 at Target and I'd say it's a much better use of your cash.
