I love kitchen gadgets. I'm a real sucker for them. I'm particularly vulnerable to infomercials. The last time I wanted to order something, I had to call my sister and beg for an intervention. But it didn't work, I ordered it anyway. It was the Redi Set Go Express Cooker. I've used it twice and it now sits inside the cupboard where it will probably stay.
But today I saw a really neat tool on the Today show. I'm a particular sucker for slicers and dicers. I could stand for hours at the county fair watching those hawkers slice and dice onions and tomatoes with a varied assortment of choppers and special knives. Here's the one that caught my eye on the Today show:
It's from William Sonoma and I can't vouch for it but everyone who commented on their site gave it 5 stars. Do you think those comments on company's sites are true? I always wonder that. Another nice thing about this particular chopper is that it's not electric so uses no power. Just a lot of elbow grease that probably could be beneficial to those upper arms.
Anyway, if you're making salsa to go along with your guacamole this weekend, it seems like a great tool to chop all your veggies. What do you use? Do you have the ultimate chopper?
In case you're like me and really can't make it to a county fair this year, here's a sample of some great dicing and slicing videos that I found on you tube. Some of them are really long, so just watch until you can't stand it anymore.
Would you let your kid handle this machine. Yikes. But he seems to be a real pro:
I really love this one. He rarely wears his shirt in his videos. What a show-off. Love the open up truck with his supplies behind him.
This one's pretty heavy-duty and you have to like reading subtitles:
I saw this man on the Sunday morning show a few weeks ago. Amazing rags to riches story. He's dead now, but his daughter has taken over his spot:
