I have a chopper that I use. It is great for mincing garlic or jalapenos. I also use it for chopping nuts. For those purposes it does a great job, especially since I have little patience with doing those tasks in the kitchen. But if you asked me could I live without a chopper, I would have to say yes.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
