Smile Nicer Dicer (Infomercial Product)...What do you think?

I stumbled across the nicer dicer infomercial this morning. As many of you know, I LOVE and am addicted to kitchen gadgets. This one actually seems kind of cool and something I would use. Here's a link to the site, let me know what ya'll think. http://www.nicerdicer.com/

I'm going to see if I can wait and find a better deal. I really like the one that does the small dice.

Personally, I've purchased a few kitchen gadgets but after a few uses they end up at the bottom of one of my kitchen drawers. I love the feel of the chef knife in my hand. Its kind of theraputic to slice and dice for me.

As much as I hate to admit it at my age, I probably need lessons instead of more gadgets. I'm never happy with the gadgets I get.

I DID see this gizmo advertised on one of those infommercials.

Maybe I'll wait until it comes to one of the stores before I buy one.

I'm also afraid that it will end up at the bottom of my already full kitchen drawer. I went and read customer reivews (on amazon) for this product. Got pretty bad ratings, but I found a competitor that's cheaper and got decent ratings. Alligator cutter. I might try this. Not sure how much I would honestly use it. I like to chop/dice too, but sometimes it seems to take so long.

I know what you mean, htc!

I'd much rather use the old trusty French knife, since it helps me stay in touch with my knife skills. Not that I lost them at all, but since I've been going to Culinary Arts class it helps.

But this WOULD be something nice to have at home to get me out of the kitchen fast! Like I don't have enough kitchen gadgets already.

Like most kitchen gadgets that I see on tv... I doubt that it would work as good as they say it does.

One of the things I LOVE about cooking is using my knives. While I love gadgets, this would not be the one for me.

Yeah, most of them usually DON'T work as promised to the consumer.

And BTW, both my Cuisinart and Robot Coupe food processors can do the job that this gizmo can.
