    Have you ever used any "as seen on TV" chopping gadgets?

    If so, did you find any useful?
    I found the Vidalia Chop Wizard (http://www.asseenontvguys.com/vidalia-ch… ) extremely useful... 'til the second time I used it and the plastic portion holding the blades literally snapped in half while chopping a vidalia (believe it or not).

    Recently have started trying out the Vidalia Slice Wizard (http://honestinfomercialreviews.com/home… ) and am finding it more and more useful the more I get the hang of it! The "safety holder" is already showing wear and tear after only a handful of uses, but I think it's from when I was starting out. Can't wait to make homemade baked French "fries"!

    A staple "dicer" we have is something pretty similar to the Slap Chop--only we got ours in the early '90s. The blades are easily bent out of shape if too much is loaded, but you get used to knowing how much to load at a time--Don't know if the Slap Chop has this issue.
    Have quite a few other "as seen on TV" gadgets hidden in cupboards that I'm just now discovering (like a fold-away plastic strainer, a blender/mixer/chopper thing, and a microwave "perfect pasta" thing)--Shall have fun with most of these in the weeks to come!

    And I'm always looking for ones that actually work to get after I find out the ones Grandma bought don't work like they're supposed to. :P
    Ahhh, the links didn't work!

    I used the nicer dicer a few years ago but it was very hard work, not really like what you see on the demo. Some things would cut easily, but others not at all and got stuck in the blade grid.

    They are what they are. Buy a decent chef's knife and practice. Quicker results and less washing up
