If you saw our Slap Chop Unboxing post, you know we previously received our Slap Chop and unpacked it for use. We thought it might be fun to put it to the test by preparing a simple three-course luncheon with the aid of Vince Offer’s magic chopper. Vince promises us the Slap Chop will endow us with an exciting life. So how did it perform?
We’re happy to say that the Slap Chop performs pretty much as advertised. You push down on the plunger and foods get chopped. The blade is sharp. While it’s not by any means a precision instrument, the Slap Chop seems plenty sturdy and its butterfly hinge makes it easy to clean. Our major mistake was not re-watching the commercial before we started. Perhaps with some study we could have replicated Vince’s trick of removing onion and garlic skins in one piece. We do think it’s possible to accomplish this feat outside of the TV studio, so we’ll try again next time we chop. Bet Vince didn’t get it on the first try.
We always aim to prepare tasty and healthy meals. Ours is not the home of the boring tuna. So our lives may not be radically transformed due to this kitchen gadget, but we’re pleased to report that the Slap Chop did its job admirably. And we thoroughly enjoyed the gastronomic results. On today’s menu: Tuna salad sandwiches on focaccia, using quality Italian canned tuna in olive oil, homemade salsa with organic multi-grain chips, and vanilla yogurt topped with nuts, berries and dark chocolate. Yes, it was delicious.
