Prepping is the most important part of cooking which is why having enough choppers is very important. While knives, cleavers and scissors are vital, they are tedious and sometimes just don’t bring out the professionalism you want in your vegetables, fruits and sometimes meat. When you get a reliable chopper, you can cut and mix up more vegetables with the push of a button or press of a lever and everything will be nice and clean. There are lots of options in the market for commercial and home chopping and it may be confusing but these 10 are a great way to start.

Just push down the lever and collect your cucumber, potato, apples or whatever you need in a bowl below the blades. You can also disassemble the whole thing and wash the blades and handles.

All you do is press on the lid and a five-second run by the blade will get your chopping job done. You can always press it for a second run if they need more chopping.
