While in Switzerland I watched my daughter in law quickly mince some onions with a handy little cooking tool, totally manual. I don’t think I’ve seen these in France and I dimly have a memory of chopping something with a chopper type device that my mother had many years ago. I was happily given a gift of one for myself. Being Swiss, it is a little more high tech than some I’ve seen, with a little device inside that turns the blade every time after it cuts.
Here it is. You just place the clear plastic part over the food you want to dice and…
and this blade comes down and starts chopping.
And in not time at all, your onions look like this. Much faster to my way of thinking, than using my cuisinard and easier to clean. Little things in life can make you happy.
