  • lol yeah i think i’m good lol i’m pretty efficient as is


  • I love it! Very smart indeed!


  • I find chopping vegetables to be quite relaxing actually lol


  • Clever! My award winning tip is to marry a chef – like I did! He cuts everything up super quickly and even gets the kids to help; usually with a blunt knife and a mushroom.


  • I was giving a chopping thing-a-majig. It has different blades for different sized chops, they click onto a container, so all your chopped bits go straight into the bowl…..no mess. It mostly sits in the cupboard and I still chop with a knife


  • What is that kitchen tool (or is it just a perm comb?!?!) – love the idea about the onion, those little veggies drive me nuts trying to chop finely.


  • What a great idea!
    So quick & convenient!
    I have a terrible habit of almost squishing tomatoes so this will be a lot easier for me!


  • Clever hack for slicing veggies – may just give it a go?

    • May be a few sales of this at shops this week?!


  • I actually have one of these and it just sits in my gadget draw.


  • Oh wow, I need one of those things pronto!


  • Thats what thats for thanks for showing me I will use it now lol


  • I have a wee thing like that at home but never use it lol !


  • This. Is. BRILLIANT!!!!!!! I LOVE IT! Thanks so much for sharing!


  • Clever way to use up that old perm comb that’s still sitting in your drawer.
    However, think I’m faster without it.

    • Lol, is that what the comb thing is?
      I had no idea what it was, whether it was just an ordinary comb or some comb-looking kitchen thing!!

      • This kitchen gizmo might look like something that was worn in your parents afro’s circa 1967, but it actually has more of a purpose than showing how thick your fro is. The Precise Onion Cutter stabs into the onion to provide a track for your knife as it slides into the emotion churning vegetable.

        The cutter is also usable with tomatoes, making sure your slices are even and clean. Even if the onion makes your bawl your eyes out, the slices shall be smooth.


  • Ive got a brilliant little gadget that chops and slices fruit and vegies quickly and in similar sizes. Love it and can’t imagine my kitchen life without it
