My first chopper

Screen Shot 2012-02-06 at 9.13.19 PM

Wrote Denise Landis in the February 1 New York Times Dining section about this implement, intended for children who'd like to take part in the kitchen: "An excellent first cutting tool, this chopper can be gripped on the top by two small hands and pressed straight down to make wavy-shaped slices of carrot, zucchini or other vegetables. The edge is sharp enough to do the job, but will not cut without pressure."

Stainless steel blade; plastic handle.

Ages 4 and up.

Think outside the kids' space: might be just the ticket for those with limitations due to arthritis and its ilk.



Note added at 11:51 a.m. today: reader Jeri Dansky just pointed out to me that this chopper is named after me, with the clever addition of a "!" to avoid my lawyerbots and a charge of copyright infringement.

Where's my Crack Legal Team®™© when I need them, anyhow?

Prolly out back with the Research Team, doing stuff I'd rather not know about.

I can see the defective products lawsuits coming. "Little Susie was mad at her big brother and cut off one of his toes..." Susie, a four year old, could not be held liable for amputating her five year old brother's toe while mom was busy changing the baby.

Yep, the folks who came up with this gadget didn't have kids....
