It's so sad, I had such high hopes for it. You see, I own something similar to it but it's tucked away in storage. The other device I own is pretty amazing. It allows me to chop up onions and other veggies so fast and I don't have to do anything extra to or with it. Not the case with this one.
When I first used the new chopper, I thought maybe I was doing something wrong. Pieces of onion kept getting stuck in the grooves and I'd spend at least five minutes trying to get them out. I gave the chopper the benefit of the doubt for 3 meals--yes, I was being very patient. Each time, Scott would see me struggling with it, he'd just chuckle...yeah, it was pretty comical. I even tried it on more solid foods like carrots, but no luck there either. The chopped food pieces would get stuck in the grooves and the grooves were too sharp for me to stuck my finger in to pull them out, so I'd have to pull out a knife to wiggle them out---ugh!! I thought about giving it away or donating it, but why put someone else through the same pain and frustration I experienced only to learn that it's a faulty tool? So, I've finally decided to lay this device to rest. Good-bye!
Have you ever seen a kitchen tool like this? Does it work??
