This food chopper delivers exceptional consistent chopping and dicing of fresh produce, nuts, chocolate, onions, shallots, and more thanks to even rotation with every push down on the easy-grip plunger. Even chopping means even cooking. No need to pull out a measuring cup after chopping with the chopper; the unit features a detachable cup with measurement markings. The detachable cup allows for convenient collecting of chopped foods. “Wiper” blades on the interior optimize chopping performance. A winged, clamshell-hinged lower body opens to allow for easy blade access and cleaning. The removable base allows for chopping directly on your chopping board. The soft-touch, non-slip plunger locks down when not in use and makes for compact storage – reducing the chopper height by 25 percent. A blade cover protects the blade and hands, and does double-duty thanks to an integrated scraper element to round up stray chopped items.
