The Slap Chop is a manual chopper machine that works when you slap the plunger part. Every slap triggers the 3 blades below to chop and cut the food. The more you slap the Slap Chop, the finer the food gets. Chop up potatoes for home fries, or add mushrooms and green peppers for a tasty side to your eggs. Even use the Slap Chop for vegetables like carrots, celery and radishes for an instant salad. Nuts and chocolate are chopped easy for toppings on ice cream. The Slap Chop is great for onions and even garlic so your fingers don't smell and it saves time. The Slap Chop's base opens up to expose the blades for easy cleaning.
