The Alligator Original Chopper allows you mince, dice, julienne, or cut chunks of ingredients in seconds. Simply place what you want to cut on the grid and push the top down (like an alligator's jaw), flip over, and voilà – the pieces are in the clear collection basket, ready to become dinner. This flat style of chopper was invented by Alligator, out of a desire to cut lots of onions without sweat or tears, but can be used for a myriad of ingredients, from carrots, cucumbers and potatoes to hard cheese and even boiled eggs. Since the blades don’t hit a hard surface (like a chopping board), they stay sharp for ages – it will take chopping approximately to 1000 kilograms of onions to dull them. The blades are concealed, making it safer to use when cooking with children. Ingredients are chopped on a detachable grid that prevents food from sticking to the base, making cleaning is a breeze. All parts are dishwasher-safe, but we recommend washing blades by hand to prolong sharpness. This 3-in-1 set is comprised of two choppers. The larger chopper has a single base with two interchangeable heads featuring medium (6x6mm) and large (12x12mm) blades. There is an additional small chopper with 3x3mm blades – ideal for mincing garlic, chillies, shallots, and other ingredients you want to cut very finely.
Why we love it
'It's a great way to give your hardworking knife a break and significantly speed up prep when entertaining – or when you want to (quickly) prepare salad and salad dressing, salsas, tapenades, pasty or samosa fillings, and so much more.'
