Here's something that might interest you!!

I was browsing in a Bed Bath & Beyond store today in, what else, the kitchen gadget section. I saw this thing that's been advertised to TV, and right away, I thought about you and your extreme dislike for chopping onions.

It's called the Nicer Dicer. It sells for about $39.00. You can also visit their website at http://www.nicerdicer.com. You might be able to get it from there as well. Good luck!

Thats what I'm looking for, nice, small compact, hate having to lug the food processor out then clean it afterwards. Anybody have any hands on experience with this product or will I be the first to test. I will buy probably towards July.

thanks,
Allen

I was tempted to get it- even today when I saw it!

But I had already bought a scanner from Staples and some diabetic cookbooks from the Joslin Diabetes Clinic.

I may still get it, but at a later time.

Reminds me of the egg peeling tool from last year...

It's difficult to determine how big the hopper is that holds the item about to be chopped. I'm guessing it won't hold a very big onion. That means that, in addition to peeling every onion, you have to cut up anything larger than a small lemon.

Also, nothing soft will work in this chopper. You'd end up making a mess.

That may also be a deciding factor as well.

I know that the large yellow Spanish onions which I always buy, won't fit through there whole.

For most of my dishes except for pasta salad and potato salad, I always use the Cuisinart for slicing (did this by hand for the Bolognese sauce yesterday), since it's super-fast and the onions bell pepper and celery disappear anyway when the dish is done.

Chefs Catalog has one. It's called the Alligator Chopper, so-called because it has the shape of an alligator's mouth and it costs $25.00.
Visit http://www.chefscatalog.com to find out more.

Just type onion choppers in the search bar and click on the SEARCH button.
