For starters do not buy from this listing. two of the pictures shown are of the fake product, including the last box. How do I know this? I purchased the real slap chop from a local store long ago. I wanted to buy another one to give to someone, but after seeing the horrible quality of the box, I wanted to see what was inside. I opened it up and to my dismay, i found the one I purchased from this listing is not as nearly as the quality as the original.

There are several inconsistencies between the two products.

First - the box. The blue box I received is very blurry with pictures that are off in color. The box they have shown on the pictures of this listing is the fake box, you can see how blurry it is. There are many grammatical mistakes, the most prevalent is how they spelled the word Parmesan. Furthermore the box states it comes with a 10 year warranty, where as the real slap chop only gives 3 year warranties since it began selling. It says " See inside for details ", regarding the 10 year warranty. However there is no manual or paper inside giving details about the warranty offered. What's even more disturbing is that there are no customer service numbers you can call anywhere on the box!

The product itself is cheap and made from cheap plastic. Not only that but the writing " Slap Chop " on the fake product started to fade after I touched it. The real one I have had for almost 2 years now and it still has writing on it no matter how many times I wash it. The seams are not flush and one is able to feel the grooves and see the two molds do not go together when its closed. They are not flush as the original. The hinges that opens like a butterfly is held together with a paperclip thin pieces of metal. This fake one feels flimsy and not nearly as sold as the original.

I also noticed that the blades on this slap chop are glued to a Piece of plastic. Where as the real slap shop's blades are held with a metal beam. If you look at the picture where they show you the blades, you can see they are doing their best to hide the difference. I believe this defeats the purpose of having the fake slapchop, because you can't clean underneath the blades. You can clean the real ones all around. The blades themselves have a difference of day and night. The original ( real ) slap chop's blades are thick and do not bend easily. Where as this fake one I received are made with some sort of thin metal that can bend easily. It made me wonder if they would stand the test of multiple daily chops.

Don't even get my started in the graty!

I have reported this product to the seller and they pretty must insulted me by saying their product is real. My next step would be to report this seller to amazon.I have the real slapchop, and the one I received from this listing is not anywhere near the quality as the real one.

Please stay clear away from this listing. There is another listing where amazon sells these themselves ( not fulfilled by amazon, purchased and sold by amazon) purchase from there and you will get what you paid for.

The slap chop and graty are tools...and like any tool, they have their benefits and their drawbacks. I now have these, a v-slicer, and a regular food processor. I use the food processor for large batch jobs, the v-slicer when I am slicing large foods, and the slap-chop when I want to chop small batches.

First, you have to read the instructions and make sure the locking ring (the black bit just under the plunger) is locked down. If it doesn't feel like it's engaging, check to make sure you're turning it the right way. Also, don't overload the chamber. If it feels flimsy, you haven't put it back together properly.

Like any manual tool you have to get a feel for it. When I started with mine, I had some trouble at times.

The upshot: you have a tool that does as well as a powered mini-chopper (if not better, you get finer control), and it's dishwasher safe and cleans thoroughly. Unlike the infomercial, you do have to clean between jobs, but if you have a sink sprayer, you can rinse off the gunk if you're going to use it immediately. Otherwise, you break it down, put it in the dishwasher, and run it.

On the graty: this has so far surpassed my Zyliss crank grater for medium cheeses (cheddar, monterey jack, etc). The Zyliss will still be good for hard cheeses like parmesan, but the graty now works best for cheddar on nachos or chili. There is one thing to remember...if you want results like in the infomercial, REMOVE THE COTTER PIN. You can do without it, and if it turns out I'm wrong, you can get replacements at most hardware stores.

BEWARE THIS IS NOT THE ORIGINAL AS SEEN ON TV SLAP CHOP. Very cheaply made and the blades were bent when I received it. I would not recommend this to anyone. Already returned it.

I ordered this product in the hopes that my wife would not complain so much about chopping up onions. The product works reasonably well. What really ticked me off was that I paid the extra for the graty only to find out that I still had to send away for it and pay shipping and handling. This was very misleading and I am greatly disappointed that this was not better explained in the product overview. I would have bought the slap chop alone and enjoyed an okay product for as long as it works.

Looks good in the TV videos. Performance is not even marginal. A huge waste of time and money. Do not buy.

First my product came without a gratey...the company did reimburse half the price for it though. Then the slap chop broke after about 3 uses! It is poorly constructed and does not work as easily as in the commercial. Food is always getting stuck in the blades. I do not recommend this to anyone.

I bought the item for my girlfriend who really wanted the Slap Chop as she loves to cook and thought it would make prep time quicker. When we got the package to our dismay we found that this item is not at all a slap chop. It is some generic no name "chopper". Nowhere on the packaging or chopper itself does it say Slap Chop. It isn't even black and white like the picture, it is blue and clear. The item *does* however open up "like a butterfly" for easy cleaning, which some noted theirs did not.

I haven't even used it, I'm just pissed that the item is being advertised as a "As Seen On TV Slap Chop and Graty" and it is not at all.

I love the slap chop. It is great for cutting walnuts, onions and anything else that needs to be slap chopped. Seriously saves a lot of time in the kitchen. It cleans up just like the commercial. Does not work well on tomatos, however, and it ends up smashing them, but what do you expect. For tomatos, use a knife. For everything else, use the Slap Chop.

Get this product if you wanna save money, save electricity, get a little bit of a workout, and chop single serving portions. It's easy to clean because it opens up and dishwasher safe.

Don't get this product if you expect to be chopping a lot of things at a time. It works best with thin layers of food. The blades get stuck if you pile up the food in the chopper. It takes some work and it'll probably tire you out or hurt your hand if you have too much to chop.
