As others have said, it's too bad they don't make a stainless steel version of this. I would gladly pay $100 for a model that would not break with everyday use. Heck, I've already spent $80 on four of the dang things, what's another $20?? :-) Obviously I love this device and I refuse to be without one in the kitchen, but I only wish it didn't break so easily. I'm not abusing it or overloading it, it's just that Vidalia chose to keep the cost down by making it out of plastic. That's not a bad thing, and it is NOT cheaply made. It's just that even with careful use, it still has a tendency to crack at certain stress points.
You have to be very careful when chopping with the Chop Wizard. I've learned this after breaking three of them. :-) I primarily use it for chopping onions, and occasionally potatoes, celery, carrots and bell peppers. It's awesome at turning a big ol' onion into small diced cubes in under a minute. I always quarter my onions before I chop them, or if the onion is large, I will chop it vertically into 6 or 8 wedges. But even then, if the onion skin is a little tough, it may not be able to fully push the outer layer through the slicing grid. You have to really make sure that the onion wedge is not too large, is centered on the grid, and that the onion's skin is not overly tough. Otherwise you run the risk of that tough layer preventing a full closure of the lid, which puts too much pressure on the hinge, and then, well, you're back on Amazon buying another Chop Wizard.
The hinge is an obvious stress point because of the leverage involved, but I have to confess I have absolutely no idea why the clear base broke last night. It was weird. Just chopping as usual, nothing felt out of place, but after chopping an onion wedge the base just blew apart. Thinking back, since I mostly use this for chopping onions, every time it broke it was while I was chopping onions, not any other vegetable. So if you are chopping onions, take extreme care on the size of your onion wedge, and if you get resistance when chopping, stop immediately and check to see that the outer layer of onion is not too tough. If it is, remove it and chop it with a knife, or throw it away. Otherwise you may be back on Amazon ordering another. :-)

My cut up onion always results in my crying. From both the onion itself (hate that!) and the always end result of my hacked up sad, ugly onion being different shapes and sizes, widths and lengths. Sort of like how no two snowflakes are the same.
Like I could teach kids their shapes with my onions. This is a square, this is a triangle, this is a rectangle, this is a circle, this is a rhombus, this is a scalene triangle, this is a polygon, this is a trapezoid.
The onion can be cut into different pretty shapes on purpose(!) for different meals. Like finely chopped into little cute cubes for tacos or your spinach dip, or medium sized cubes for your omelette, or julienne cut for sausages, or even razor blade thin circles for your salad or medium sized thickness circles for your cheeseburger. I freaking can't do any of them properly.
Our 9 year old has even picked up on my incompetent vegetable cutting skills during Taco Tuesday dinners.
But, I fear no more as I am the proud owner of the Chop Wizard. Hallelujah. I have proclaimed it to be my favorite best tool in the kitchen. My husband doesn't agree though because his chopping abilities are spectacular and his vegetables always turn out beautiful and the same size and shape and width and length.
So now I don't cry anymore while chopping my onions with my handy gadget Chop Wizard. Because #1, they are the same size and shape, width and length and #2 the fumes don't get into my eyes because this thing chops it so fast it doesn't even have enough time to waft into my face, and the catch container helps trap the fumes.
The catch container also makes it easy to just take the lid off and dump everything into your pot, pan or bowl.
I do recommend you use the larger cutter for your green, yellow, orange, and red peppers because the smaller one kind of just disintegrates the peppers.
Yes, sometimes I have to put all my might into pushing this chopper, but it's still quicker than chopping by hand for me. Also, my 9 year old always requests to chop a couple things, as he has a blast doing it.
On a side note, I do wish it came with 2 little brushes for cleaning the insert discs... kind of like a mascara brush style... one for the little insert disc and a little bit thicker one to clean larger insert disc. The plastic comb that comes with it cleans the top plastic lid of the chopper wonderfully and easily in my opinion, but the actual cleaning of the metal choppers can be a pain sometimes. Two brushes would help immensely with those or maybe a brush could be attached to the other end of the plastic comb cleaner or something. But to me it's worth the extra time and some hassle washing them because I have some good looking professionally cut veggies, and totally looks like I belong on Top Chef.
And yes, this product will break if you put too big of a piece in there and slam it down unevenly. I sadly broke the lid doing just this. But I do use this so often that I've definitely got my money's worth out of it, and it's worth it to me to just purchase another one.

He reports that it makes cutting onions etc so much easier but that it is a bit of a pain to get the onion skin out of it again. Overall though he would recommend.
However, I must stress that this is my third chop wizard. The plastic container breaks after multiple uses. I think they plastic needs to be stronger. Had the plastic been stronger I would award this product five stars.
The price varies for this product on Amazon. If it is more than £25.00 I would wait till it falls in price. I wouldn't recommend anyone this product if it were to be priced above £25.00.
