Food Choppers Buying Guide

Standard food choppers that chop a single ingredient, such as nuts, have been on the market for years. Now, however, these handy tools have developed into versatile gadgets, designed to accomplish more than a single chopping task. Depending on the model, you can chop, mince, and even puree foods with the simplicity of a food chopper. The popularity of this easy-to-use gadget is growing, and new versions are evolving.

Types of Food Choppers

Types of Food Choppers

When it comes to chopping and mincing, a food chopper can shave minutes off ingredient preparation. Food choppers chop and hold 1 to 3 cups of food at a time; a food processor is a better choice if you need larger quantities. The first thing you need to decide when purchasing a food chopper is whether you want an electric or a manual model. Beyond that, most food choppers accomplish the same task: They chop food.

Electric food choppers

Similar to a food processor, an electric food chopper is perfect for small jobs. Chopping an ingredient, or a small amount of a combination of ingredients, takes little time with this appliance. Although larger, harder vegetables such as carrots and onions need to be sliced into smaller chunks before adding them to the chopper, the tool still trims time off prep. Because it chops, minces, and even purees, an electric chopper is great for prepping foods such as onions or nuts, and it is also handy for making salsa or chunky sauces.

Manual food choppers

A spring-loaded food chopper neatly and easily chops nuts, fruits, and vegetables in sizes from coarse to fine. A small portion of food is placed on a cutting board or in the unit’s container, and then the food is manually chopped by applying pressure to ultra-sharp blades. Another model allows food to be pushed through a set of blades that cuts it into pieces, slices, wedges, and more. Most manual choppers are inexpensive and easy to use and clean.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

To purchase the right food chopper for your kitchen, think about the tasks you want to achieve. Some simply chop, while others chop, slice, wedge, and puree.

Style

Because food choppers are available as an electric appliance or a manual gadget, you need to decide which style you prefer in your kitchen. If you are considering an electric model, give some thought to where you want to use it and whether there are outlets nearby.

Mechanics

Food choppers work in a variety of ways. The electric version chops with the push of a button or flip of a switch, while manual choppers offer a few options. Those that are spring-loaded chop with several hand pumps that move the blades in an up-and-down fashion in a container or on a cutting surface. A second design chops when food is pushed through a set of blades into a container. Another manual option is activated by the pull of a cord and can do everything from chop to puree, depending on how many times the cord is pulled.

Blades

Different models offer options for cutters or blades. Some have blades that simply chop and may be designed for a specific ingredient, while others offer interchangeable blades allowing you to cut a variety of ingredients into slices, sticks, wedges, and more.
