Has anyone seen this?

I saw an ad on tv about a little kitchen appliance that fits over a glad bowl and slices, minces, etc - similar to a food processor. Has anyone seen this and what do you think about it?

i think it's a cheap version of a food mandoline.
i have started to look into buying one, and have found prices (and probably their assocaited quality) range from $19.95 to $130.

anyone have a recommendation for a good mandoline (not ridiculously expensive since it will only get occasional use)?
i have been looking into the oxo-good grips one, at about $70.

It does some of the same things as a mandolin, but is electric. If it is as good as it looked, it would be worth the cost - seems like about $50.00. It is made by a well know kitchen machine company, but I can't remember who.

oops, sorry, i didn't realize it was electric.
the one i saw was a cheapo, or is that another term for ronco, infomercial.
it was a cheap plastic mandoline that fit over tupperware type bowls.

I found it. It is called Hamilton Beach Change A Bowl. I ordered it and hope it works well. Thanks, anyway.

I must admit you totally threw me for a loop on this one, Licia! I quess I don't watch enough TV, or the right channels, to have seen this. I was out scouring the "As Seen On TV" website ...

For buckytom, and everyone else who read this thread without commenting, here is the link to the info on the Hamilton Beach Change-A-Bowl gizmo.
