What is it supposed to do?
You put whatever you would like chopped-up in the little container at the bottom. You then put the top on and push down on the plunger. The zig-zag blade slices the food and then shifts about 90 degrees as it comes up, ready for the next chop.
Does it work?
I've tried it with onions and nuts; it did an ok job of dicing the onion but really struggled with the nuts. It occasionally got stuck chopping the onion. The bottom bowl can be put in the dishwasher but the top needs to be washed by hand.
It was pretty difficult for my wrists chopping either with it as you have to really push the plunger down and then it sort of springs back up so it feels pretty high impact. I think if your main problem is your grip though, this could be very handy.
B- Must try harder.
You can buy the chopper online here and there are lots of similar gadgets around. If you have come across a better version, let me know!
