I personally hate absoluately hate chopping onions. They are messy, make your hands smell and as always make you cry. Typically while I am crying when I am cutting the onions, I wipe my eye and usually it accidently hits one that has touched an onion and then my eye starts to burn. Needless to say, I would only chop onions once a year. After they were chopped, I would freeze them so I would never have to deal with the mess until I run out. I found the Kuhn Rikon Vegetable Chopper and decided to try it. I knew of friends that have had vegetable choppers, but they didn’t seem to like theirs. It is very durable and makes chopping onions easy. All I have to do is to remove the skin cut it in quarters and then chop it up with the chopper. Now, what use to take me hours, only take me minutes with my Kuhn Rikon Vegetable Chopper.
