We are very pleased with the purchase — the product is great! This price is appropriate since the product is very well built. It doesn’t squeaks nor bents. Looks great in my apartment. It is inconvenient to use due to the size. I am going to get something different next time.
garlic chopper Buyer’s Guide
This will determine how your vegetable chopping machine will administer its chopping force. There are two different functioning methods, manual and electric. Manual vegetable chopping machines are most effective for chopping nuts, slicing and dicing fruits and vegetables, mincing, and julienning. Electric vegetable choppers are much faster and can handle larger amounts of food at once. Because of the increased speed and application of the electric chopper, these machines are able to achieve cuts from dicing to pureeing.
What’s better than having one cutting option for a vegetable chopper? Having multiple! Depending on how cuts are applied and the construction of the appliance, some vegetable choppers will have different cutting options for your food prep needs. These can range from your standard chopping to pureeing, julienning, and dicing. Understanding the kinds of cuts your chopper can provide will be a huge determining factor in choosing which appliance is perfect for you.
Vegetable choppers come in all different shapes and sizes. Some fit right in the palm of your hand and others go along-side your other counter top kitchen appliances. Smaller vegetable choppers can be easier to handle but may sacrifice quantity of prepared food, while larger choppers can handle larger quantities of food at once and offer more of a variety of cuts. We chose choppers that were the perfect size for at-home chefs to easily use, clean, and store regularly.
So now that you’ve gotten the hang of your vegetable chopper, we know you’re probably going to get a little chop-happy. That’s why some vegetable choppers come with an extra storage option for your leftover vegetables. This can be particularly useful saving you that last step of pulling out the cling wrap, plastic bags, or tupperware to store extras.
This little handy chopper lives up to its name; it truly is a Ninja! The sleek matte black exterior and smooth ergonomic hand-held design is BPA free and allows chopping almost any vegetable fast and efficient. The Ninja Express Chop is constructed out of simple parts so you don’t have to worry about trying to put together a jigsaw puzzle to mince your garlic. Don’t let its small stature fool you! This chopper has a whopping 3-cup capacity with measuring lines, so you don’t have to break up the separate measuring cups when prepping your ingredients.
What makes this little Ninja stand out from its competitors is that it applies 200 watts of power for every pulse, causing the tiered blades to gyrate and astounding speeds. This movement allows your to chop, dice, mince, blend, and puree depending on how many times pulses are enforced, allowing you to achieve these complex cuts with the push of a button.
The Ninja Express Chop also has a no-slip grip base so the whole device stays steady while applying the powerful chops. We got a little excited using this machine and made a little bit too much salsa for one sitting. It comes with an extra storage lid making clean up a walk in the park just by placing it over the chop base and into the fridge, while the blades went into the dishwasher.
Everybody know’s the phrase, “Size matters,” but is it really true? In this case, I’d say, hell yeah! Except we’re not really looking for something big, we want something handy and easy to put away (that’s right). KitchenAid has done it yet again with a fantastic kitchen appliance that is not only effective, but also fits in any size cooking area.
Running on different speeds, this chopper makes it easy to manage the size of cuts you want to apply. You can do everything from dicing tomatoes and other vegetables to grinding nuts or making crust for pies. The two stacked blade technology works at an angle so the most surface area of the vegetables are sliced. Plus, all the dirty parts fit conveniently into the top shelf of your dishwasher, so you don’t have to spend extra time scrubbing away.
In the end, this is a great chopper for any household. It’s easy to use with a push of a button, and can chop pretty much any kind of food item. We definitely recommend this product because of its affordability and it’s easy-to-use functionality.
OXO Good Grips Mini Chopper
A great tool for mincing and chopping onion, garlic, shallots, and nuts. OXO Good Grips Mini Chopper features knob that can be pressed for even chopping and easy storage. This chopper also features removable blade cartridge; thus it is easy to clean. Interestingly, it is selling at a very cheap price; thus, ordering one now to protect your fingers from cuts.
Prepworks from Progressive International is an ideal one handed food chopper. From chopping nuts, onions, fruits to chocolate and cheese, this compact chopper can do it all. Moreover, it features built-in side blade which reduces the need for precutting. This package also comes with cleaning tools and storage box. With this food chopper, you do not have to use cutting board and knives which are dangerous anymore.
Chop Magic Chopper
If your current machine’s motor base is so lightweight that the appliance stutters across the counter when in use, you should consider upgrading to model with a heavier build.
For processing small batches of ingredients, you might want to consider getting a mini food processor—even if you have a full-size version. A mini model will process smaller quantities more efficiently, and its diminutive size means it’s easier to move around a counter, store, and clean.
If you have an older machine that still works well, stick with it. But if your current machine’s motor base is so lightweight that the appliance stutters across the counter when in use, you should consider upgrading to model with a heavier build. And if your processor is 1cups or smaller but you cook for more than two people, you might want to switch to a model with a larger bowl for blending wet ingredients or making bigger batches of shredded veggies or grated cheese.
How we picked and tested
After testing food processors over the past four years, we still think the Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup (pictured fourth from the left) is the best for most people.
At its most basic, a food processor consists of a work bowl that sits on a motorized drive shaft. The bowl’s lid has a feed tube for inserting food to be chopped, diced, sliced, ground, or even kneaded (in the case of dough). Most food processors come with S-shaped blades and various disks for grating and slicing, but a host of other attachments—such as julienne disks and citrus juicers—are also available.
Flaws but not dealbreakers
We read a few reviews that dislike how the Cuisinart Custom’s lid locks with the feed tube in the back rather in the front (standard for most models). However, we think it’s actually easier to see the ingredients in the bowl when the feed tube is positioned in the back of the lid.
The Cuisinart Custom’s shredding disk isn’t adjustable like Breville Sous Chef’s, which has multiple settings similar to a mandoline. That said, you can still buy additional slicing disks through Cuisinart. The included slicing disk makes approximately five-millimeter slices, which is fine for most tasks, but you’d probably want the mm slicing disk for making homemade potato chips.
The only task the Cuisinart Custom didn’t excel at was chopping nuts. Most were evenly chopped, but there were a handful of nuts that remained in large pieces. But since the Cuisinart Custom mastered every other task, we don’t think this is a dealbreaker.
Long-term test notes
After four years of long-term testing, we’ve consistently liked using the Cuisinart Custom. We’ve made slaws, grated cheese, blended dips, and kneaded pizza dough in it, and it has worked well. The 14-cup bowl doesn’t leak, and the controls are exactly what you need.
The bowl has scratched a bit (because we’ve stored the sharp blades inside the bowl). We’ve also noticed on other Cuisinart models that the plastic on the S-blade attachment discolors slightly with prolonged use. However, we haven’t tested the Cuisinart Custom long enough for this to happen. Overall, we still really like using this machine.
We were impressed by the KitchenAid 3.Mini Food Processor, which proved to be a workhorse in our tests.
KitchenAid 3.Cup Mini Food Processor
The KitchenAid produced more even textures than the other mini processors we tested and did so quickly. It chopped onions better than our former pick, the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus. (We recommend cutting a whole onion into eighths prior to pulsing for best results.) It also chopped a quartered tomato very evenly; we had to cut a tomato into smaller pieces to get the same results using the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus. The KitchenAid also cleanly cut parsley, whereas the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus tore it, causing it to oxidize faster.
Both the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus and the KitchenAid Mini Food Processor made perfect batches of mayonnaise. However, the KitchenAid excelled at dicing carrots while the Cuisinart struggled to chop a tough jumbo carrot and took nearly three times as long. The residual carrot juice also dyed the white plastic parts on the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus and discolored the bowl. Neither model excelled at chopping whole almonds, however; we think full-sized processors are best for this task.
The Mini Food Processor looks almost identical to a full-size processor, except that it has a knob that can be adjusted for chopping and pureeing. The chop setting moves the blade at a slower rpm, while the puree button operates at a faster rpm.
And, of course, the KitchenAid 3.Mini Processor is quite a bit smaller and easier to move around than bigger machines. Most mini choppers don’t have hefty bases like a full-size processor, and the KitchenAid is no exception. However, at just under pounds, it has a slightly heavier base compared to our previous pick, the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus. We didn’t notice any straining or stuttering of the KitchenAid 3.Mini Food Processor’s 240-watt motor, even when chopping a tough jumbo carrot. Since you won’t use it for heavy tasks such as making bread dough, we don’t think there’s much risk of burning out the motor.
The KitchenAid 3.Mini Food Processor excels at emulsifications. In fact, of all the food processors, blenders, and immersion blenders we’ve tested for various guides, we found making mayo easiest in a mini food processor. That’s because its lid has a small indent to hold oil and a small hole that allows the oil to pour directly onto the blades so you have a consistent, measured stream. With this method, the mayonnaise comes together without your having to control the flow of oil.
Making mayonnaise in the KitchenAid 3.5-Cup Mini Food Processor is exceptionally easy due to a small well and hole in the lid for adding oil.
Our testers preferred the handle on the bowl of the KitchenAid 3.Cup Mini Processor. Other mini models, such as those sold by KitchenAid and Farberware, lack this feature. We struggled to remove the bowl on models that didn’t have a handle, especially when working with greasy hands. We also love the push-button activation on the KitchenAid, where the lid meets the handle. We found it easier to operate than holding down buttons on the base of the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus. The plastic ring around the lid can also be removed for easy cleaning.
Our testers liked the placement of the push-button activation on the KitchenAid 3.5-Cup Mini Food Processor where the lid meets the handle.
The KitchenAid 3.Mini Food Processor comes with a one-year warranty. If you experience problems under normal household use, contact KitchenAid for support.
The Breville Sous Chef performed best overall in our tests, but it’s far larger and has more attachments than most people need.
Full-size food processors
The Breville BFP660SIL Sous Chef 1Food Processor did well in our tests, but it didn’t outperform the 16-cup Breville Sous Chef or our top pick, the Cuisinart Custom. In our tests, the Breville BFP660SIL Sous Chef wasn’t able to chop tomatoes or almonds as evenly as the 16-cup Breville Sous Chef. Its smaller 12-cup capacity was also more limiting than the Cuisinart Custom’s 14-cup bowl.
We were not impressed with the Magimix by Robot-Coupe 14-Cup Food Processor. In our tests, it wasn’t able to produce as even a chop as the Breville Sous Chef or Cuisinart Custom. The feed tube on the Magimix is very wide, so thin items like carrots fall to the side and produce an uneven grate. The rounded lid also creates a wide gap around the perimeter of the slicing blade, which allows large pieces of food to slip through into the bowl. The machine also seized up while preparing pizza dough and was noisier than other models we tested.
The Cuisinart FP-13DGM Elemental 1Cup Food Processor and Dicing Kit was not able to chop as evenly as our picks. Our testers were impressed with the dicing kit, which chopped firm vegetables like potatoes and carrots into even cubes. However, since this was the only task it excelled at, we don’t think it’s best for most people. The motor on this model was noisy and the base is very lightweight.
We decided not to test the Braun FP3020 12-Cup Food Processor since it’s the same price as our top pick with a smaller capacity. We can’t justify paying more for a smaller machine. The Braun FP3020 is also only 600 watts versus the 720 watts of our main pick.
In our tests, the Cuisinart Prep 1Plus didn’t mix big batches of dough as well as the Cuisinart Custom due to its smaller bowl. It also struggled to grind bread crumbs and leaked around the shank at the center of the bowl when processing wet ingredients.
The KitchenAid 13-Cup ExactSlice was our least favorite of the large processors. The base shook and the motor eventually seized when processing pizza dough.
The Cuisinart Elite FP-12DCN performed well in our tests, but it comes with a gasket on the lid that frequently trapped flour and sticky ingredients. Our testers also preferred the Cuisinart Custom Pro’s 14-cup capacity over the Elite’s 12-cup capacity.
In our tests, we found that a 14-cup capacity food processor bowl is ideal for most people. For this reason, and based on other reviews on the web, we were able to rule out many models from Cuisinart, Breville, Braun, Hamilton Beach, Magimix, Procter Silex, KitchenAid, Oster, and Black+Decker with bowls under 1cups.
Mini food processors
The Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus was our former mini chopper pick. We still think it’s a powerful machine, considering its diminutive size, but it wasn’t able to chop as evenly as the KitchenAid 3.Cup Mini Food Processor. In our tests, it moved across the counter as it struggled to chop a tough jumbo carrot. It also tore the parsley we chopped, whereas the KitchenAid produced a clean, even cut.
The Farberware 3-Cup Mini Chopper lacks a handle on the bowl, which made it difficult to remove from the base, especially when working with greasy hands. Also, this chopper left behind an entire piece of onion after pulsing and produced the most unevenly chopped almonds out of all the models we tested. And it doesn’t have holes in the lid for making mayo.
Our testers found the base of the VonShef Food Processor to be too large for a mini-chopper. However, the biggest problem with this processor is the wide gap between the top of the slicing/grating disk and the bottom of the feed tube, which caused onions and cheese to roll around and create irregular slices. Also, this model couldn’t make mayo; the gap between the blade and the bowl was too large to create an effective emulsion.
How we tested
Lately a whole world of gizmos has sprung up, promising to do everything from chop, mince, and slice to shred, grate, and crush garlic—and even remove its smell from your hands. We tested five new tools to see if any were worth adding to our arsenal. In the end, we didn’t find anything that we couldn’t live without, but we did love a mini mandoline that smoothly churned out perfect slices of garlic. Two of the gadgets were amusing and effective but hardly essential: a stainless steel soap bar with an impressive ability to neutralize garlic odor (any stainless steel surface will do the same) and a rolling garlic chopper that resembles a toy truck. The last two, a rocking garlic crusher and a plastic garlic grating card promising to get the job done without shredding your knuckles, were nice ideas but performed terribly.
Instead of a Rasp Grater
For grating garlic into a puree, the GarlicCard, a textured piece of plastic the size of a credit card, promises to get the job done without shredding your fingertips. It did work, but its small grating zone made it much slower than using our favorite rasp grater and its nubs trapped garlic so that we were left with a reduced yield and tedious cleanup.
Better Than Soap and Water
The Amco Rub-A-Way Bar is a block of stainless steel shaped like a bar of soap that claims to erase garlic smell from your hands. It worked like magic, with just a little cold tap water. Theories abound as to how it works—the most plausible being that the metal binds to garlic’s odorous sulfur compounds, removing them from your skin. We did get the same results from rubbing our hands on a steel bowl, but the soap bar shape was easier to use (and to clean).
Design Trifecta 360 Knife Block
Admittedly expensive, this handsome block certainly seemed to live up to its billing as “the last knife block you ever have to buy.” The heaviest model in our testing, this block was ultrastable, and its durable bamboo exterior was a breeze to clean. Well-placed medium-strength magnets made it easy to attach all our knives, and a rotating base gave us quick access to them. One tiny quibble: The blade of our 12-inch slicing knife stuck out a little.
Schmidt Brothers Downtown Block
This roomy block completely sheathed our entire winning knife set using just one of its two sides—and quite securely, thanks to long, medium-strength magnet bars. Heavy, with a grippy base, this block was very stable. An acrylic guard made this model extra-safe but also made it a little trickier to insert knives and to clean; the wood block itself showed some minor cosmetic scratching during use.
Schmidt Brothers Midtown Block
This smaller version of the Downtown Block secured all our knives nicely, though the blade of the slicing knife stuck out a bit. With a base lined with grippy material, this block was very stable. An acrylic guard afforded extra protection against contact with blades but made it a little harder to insert knives and to clean; the wood itself got a little scratched during use.
View Wish List
One of our most popular kitchen tools, the Food Chopper makes quick work of chopping veggies, cooked meat and nuts in seconds. It’s the solution to tear-free onion chopping! It’s equipped with a unique stainless steel blade that rotates with each press of the plunger for consistent results. The more you press the plunger, the finer the chop.
Blow torches are traditionally used for the finishing touches on desserts and dishes. They are relatively small and light weight and are ideal for browning meringues, caramelising desserts and crisping meats. Blowtorches have a refillable cylinder so they can be used time and time again.
Inserts and trays for holding your cutlery inside your drawer are great for organising and keeping together sets of cutlery and small utensils. Getting the perfect fit can be achieved by measuring and buying a suitable organiser, however some drawer inserts are available that can be expanded in one direction to fit the width of the drawer. These drawer inserts are generally constructed from wood or moulded plastic, both can be wiped clean.
Herb & Spice
Herbs and spices are used every day in the modern kitchen and need to be stored and dispensed. Ground herbs can be kept in jars in a rack or carousel and can be refilled and relabelled as required. Spice grinders are small mills that can be used specifically for grinding your own fresh spice mixes and storing them yourself. Herb cutters can strip can chop herbs for you to collect and store for a short time. ‘S’ shaped hooks can be used for looping one end over a structure and the other for hooking on a towel apron or utensil. Other pan and utensil hooks can also connect via different ways to an existing rack, with particular hooks for that rack like a swivel hook.
Nut crackers are used to break through the shell of nuts to be able to get to the nut itself. The two handled tool is designed to squeeze the nut where to two handles meet, there is usually a grip here too that will hold the nut in place.
Pantry bags are linen bags ideal for keeping your onions, potatoes and other root vegetables out of strong light and keeping cool in your larder. The bags will be sturdy and thick to allow the vegetables to be in the dark, this prevents them from spouting roots or eyelets to reseed. Keeping these foods cool are essential to prevent the vegetable softening.
Pot racks can hang from either the ceiling or the wall. They will have many hooks on them used for hanging saucepans and other pots with handles. The racks can be just a single line or several in a complete rack. Hooks can be added later if more are required. Racks are generally made from a strong metal and sometimes wood and come in a variety of finishes.
Roasting bags are ideal for cooking meats and marinated food in the oven, after marinating meat and adding other ingredients, the bags can be sealed and put on a baking tray. This will keep everything together whilst roasting. Also for a roast dinner the bags will help crisp up the meat and cook through perfectly.
Skewers are ideal for summer barbeques and evening treats. You can skewer on meats and vegetables or seafood and place across your barbecue or oven grill to create an interesting meal. Skewers can be made from wood for one time use or metal for use time and time again. Metal skewers tend to have flattened side to help stop the meat and vegetables from spinning around when you turn the skewers over.
Correct food storage is essential to avoid waste and mess, especially after something has been opened but not fully used. This applies to liquids and food alike. Freshness is a key factor and keeping bacteria at bay is also very essential. Plastic tubs with seals and clipped lids work perfectly as the lids are safe and secure and even leak proof for liquids. Check each product for dishwasher and microwave safety as they may not always be suitable.
Freshware KT-403-in-Onion Chopper
Another favorite among users is the Freshware KT-403-in-Onion Chopper. It can slice, chop and mince several onions at once saving you time and effort. Aside from that, it can also chop various fruits and vegetables. Unlike other choppers where the food is processed inside the bowl, this chopper pushes food down through the blades at the top, effectively slicing them as they land in the compartment. There are three interchangeable stainless steel blade designs that are very sharp but also safe to use. The plastic compartment is BPA-free and does a great job of keeping odors from escaping.
Kitchen Aid KFC3511GA 3.5-Cup Food Chopper
When it comes to electric choppers, the Kitchen Aid KFC3511GA 3.5-Cup Food Chopper is one of the best. It’s a small food processor that handles all your chopping and slicing. This electric chopper is also equipped with heavy-duty stainless steel blades and a powerful motor, plus it includes an attachment for incorporating wet ingredients to your food. It efficiently cuts up onions, as well as other vegetables and fruits. The plastic container is BPA-free and holds up to and a half cups of chopped food. There are two speed settings to choose from: chop and puree.
OXO Good Grips Chopper
One of the easiest to use and most budget-friendly choppers is the OXO Good Grips Chopper. You merely press down the top of this manual chopper to get the blades inside the container to spin and start slicing. Using it requires little effort, and assembling it and taking it apart for cleaning is quick and easy as well. The compartment is also well-constructed to keep in odors like those from onions, while the base of the chopper is made of non-slip material to keep the chopper in place while you’re using it.

Furthermore, it wil gives you an additional blade option to change the type of spaghetti.
This way, you can have much more different type of option for food arrangement.
Selecting the brand
There is a reason why brand is important. More often is that the brand have spent so much time in their marketing campaign and they do not want to lose their reputation image. As such you may consider choosing some reputation brand such as black and decker.
Homepuff manual pulling food chopper
This food shopper does not only handle soft fruit but also fruits that come with skins and a very easy to control pull cord.

The stainless steel housing and pusher, the knife holder made with the cast aluminum and blades for tempered stainless steel. Cutting vegetables into strings in no time with almost every piece in the same width and style.
Number of Blades
A product with several options for blades means your vegetable chopper can replace many of the tools in your kitchen, saving you cabinet space and streamlining your prep.
Many manual choppers come with a variety of blades, including small and large dice, as well as slicing and shredding. Similarly, some electric models come with more than one chopping option, allowing for coarse chops for chunky salsas and soups, to fine minces for onions and garlic.
As you’re considering the right chopper for you, think about the options you need and the environment you’re working in. Are you looking to stock your RV, which has limited kitchen and counter space? Do you just need a single tool that relieves you from the monotony of dicing carrot after carrot? These requirements will help lead you to the tool that is as simple or as customizable as you need.
Manual and electric vegetable choppers usually use a bowl or container that catches the chopped food, and can also function as storage. If you’re just cooking for one or two, a small container will get the job done (and won’t take up unnecessary space), while those cooking for crowds or doing weekly meal preps will want to opt for a larger capacity.
If your prep style varies from day to day, consider a model that doesn’t rely on a container or bowl, and allows you to put a container of your choosing to catch the chopped veggies.
Bisphenol-A, or BPA, is a chemical added to plastics to harden them and give them shape.
If you are someone avoiding BPA, look for products that are labeled “BPA-free.” At the very least, you can look for choppers that do contain BPA but use BPA-free plastics for the areas that come into contact with food. You can get as strict or lenient with this as you feel comfortable with.
What We Disliked
The vegetable chopper from Progressive features an ergonomic design that allows cooks to chop perfect vegetables with a one-handed press of the pusher lid. With that single motion, food slides through the sharp stainless steel blades and is collected in the container base, which can function as a measuring cup and a storage container.
At the top of our price range for manual vegetable choppers, this model may cost more than some home cooks are willing to spend on such a tool. However, the product has overwhelmingly positive reviews, and does prove to be convenient – no mess on your cutting board, a considerable decrease in prep time, and less chance of injury to hands and fingers are all benefits of this product.
The Progressive Vegetable Chopper is BPA-free and dishwasher safe, making it a healthy and easy tool to have in your kitchen. However, some reviewers note that the blades are not strong enough considering the price, and struggle with hard foods.
Effective Power Motor
It has a 70-watt motor for fast mincing and grinding and all the pieces come apart for easy cleaning; it is also dishwasher safe.
The single blade limits chopping choices (no fancy cuts) and you do have to cut large pieces before putting them in, but overall it does a good job for anyone who wants finely chopped and minced foods quickly.
If you want to get the best value for your money then this is the model for you, thanks to its great pricing and multi-purpose design.
It creates smooth, tasty, hummus, pesto, guacamole and other sauces. It also works great for making crushed ice (ideal for a summer party).
All the pieces can be cleaned on the top rack of the dishwasher and since it works by hand you can take it with you if friends and family are having a party.
Chopped Veggie Salad
This is a basic recipe everyone should have. You can use fruits or vegetables in the recipe, which works great all-year round.
Ingredients: whatever you have in your fridge. Take a mix of different vegetables, like broccoli, carrots, cauliflower and cucumbers, put them in the chopper and chop to the desired size.
Q & A
A. Not really. Most work easily with a little push, although some do require more arm action, so if you have arthritis you may want a pull-cord or electric model.
Ninja Express Chop
How It Works
But, before we go on, what do you actually know about onions? Did you know that they have been cultivated for more than 7000 years? That’s a long time! Or, in fact, that the wild onion – from which we can only presume the present-day cultivated version emerged – is actually extinct? That’s true: there are no genuine wild onions, anywhere in the world, and those that may grow wild have been seeded by cultivated onions! For this reason, nobody knows where in the world the onion originated, although we do know they were actually revered in Ancient Egypt, and were widely used in Chinese and Persian cuisine many thousands of years ago.
Features to Consider
Mains or Manual – the big question: do you want one that does the job for you, or do you want to push a plunger, shut a lid or pull a cord to shred your veg? There are many different forms of operation here, so consider carefully.
Style or Function – some of these are designed purely for function, others have a sense of style built in. If you like your kitchen implements to look good, there are some that are more handsome than others.
That’s rally all there is to it when choosing a device to chop your onions, so all that remains now is for us to wrap things up.
Let’s Wrap It Up!
First of all thanks for reading my article to the end! I hope you find my reviews listed here useful and that it allows you to make a proper comparison of what is best to fit your needs and budget. Don’t be afraid to try more than one product if your first pick doesn’t do the trick.
Most important, have fun and choose your garlic chopper wisely! Good luck!
