You might have seen the new, hilarious, commercial from that crazy guy who sells the Sham Wows. His new gadget is the Slap Chop and it's actually a nice step up from normal choppers.
I first saw the commercial while I was up late at night eating nachos. I had actually spent about 20 minutes chopping all my onions, peppers, beans and cheese and nuking it all in the microwave. I nearly missed the funny commercial because I was slap-chopping so long!

The funniest line came when he was talking about tearing up while chopping onions, "Life's hard enough as it is, you donâ€™t need to cry anymore."
That was hilarious, but so true. I hate tearing up and blowing my nose every time I want some onions.
I had gotten one of the push-down choppers before, but it didn't work so well. The blades were positioned in an X so all kinds of food would get stuck in the empty spaces between the blades and sit there while I chopped the rest of it far too small.
The thing that caught my eye was how the blades on the Slap Chop were situated, they were in a W shape with very little space between the chopping areas.
When it arrived -- along with a great cheese grating gizmo -- the Slap Chop actually lived up to the late-night hype.
I made myself a batch of nachos in about two minutes; most of that time was used finding all the veggies in my fridge. I even wiped down the blade in the minute that the nachos were sitting in the microwave.
I have to say I'm quite impressed with the food chopper. And the cheese grater was fantastic for pasta dinners.
Check it out yourself and buy a Slap Chop, you will be happy.
