Yeah I actually enjoy playing with the chef's knife and cutting board too. As with most things, the more I do it the better and more efficient I get.


Still.....cool tool CD. Thanks for sharing.

I have both of them. I use the Pampered chef for garlic only. The other one, I never remember I have it, and use a knife instead. It is great for onions.

I commend you for outing yourself like that CD. I'll admit it does look like a neat gadget, but that would take some of the fun out of cooking I think, for me at least. I love playing dodge the finger.

Speaking of dodge the finger, I tried to play it drunk the other day and lost. I had a buddy come over to smoke a turkey on the day I made that turkey pastrami. I was dicing up the pickles for the thousand island and cut pretty much the tip of my finger off. So I throw the pickles the knife and the board in the sink. Grab a new board, new pickles and a new knife, hand it to my buddy and tell him to dice the pickles. I go upstairs to secure a band aid, not 20 seconds later I hear 3 people yell "hey Jason, grab another band aid while your up there." It made me feel better knowing I wasn't the only one bleeding that day. Heck the sandwiches were good no matter what ended up in there.

My mom gave me some old Slap Chop she had laying around. I actually have very good knife skills, somehow. Youtube helped a lot, but I've always been good with a blade. Putting an edge on them has been a learning experience, but when it HAS an edge... oh buddy, watch out.

I might pull out that Slap Chop thing and see if it's worth keeping.

For everyone lopping finger tips off, google claw grip. Your tips will thank you, your knuckles might get angry for the first spell of the learning curve.

I too have a slap chop. I do have a decent amount of knife skill, but sometimes I am flat out lazy and bust out the slap chop. Only drawbacks are the pieces are not quite uniform, and don't try slapping a piece of onion or potato that takes up all the chopping space in the chopper. If you overload it the blade will stick somewhere along the way.

That WS chopper the OP has looks cool and all... But COME ON! Vince didn't promote it! Everybody loves Vince...

Yeah, I like to think I'm getting pretty good at the claw grip...that is until I get to that little bit at the end. I just don't know when to say when. According to my wife that's a problem I've been having for years though.

CD,

Interesting gadget and glad it works for you.

I keep working on my knife skills and sometimes I get better, sometimes I scare myself.

Casey just keep practicing and you'll eventually get there. That gadget is nice and all, but the blades do become dull. At least with a knife, you can re-sharpen with a nice stone. Just my 2 cents.
