Good Grips Chopper
Chop vegetables safely with this easy to use food chopper. It features a knob on the top to push down on for blades to chop food in an enclosed cup or on a cutting board. Dissemble easily for cleaning and it is also dishwasher safe.

Price: $21.95

Reeve Review: The chopper is definitely easy to use and the blades were sharp enough to cut. It does have multiple parts which made washing a little tiring. I like the lid for storage directly in the container, no need to transfer things into another storage dish which was great for saving a dish and saving the hassle of another step trying to transfer. You can also chop directly on the block which was great since the bowl that comes with it is so small. – Christy Earheart, T12
