- Cutting and dicing vegetables can be an arduous and time-consuming process that’s just not enjoyable.
- The Fullstar Vegetable Chopper ($19.99) drastically cuts down on the time it takes me to dice vegetables. I also use it for fruit and cheese, and to spiralize vegetables too.

Spending time in the kitchen is a great stress reliever for me, but spending too much time in the kitchen when I have other things to do has the opposite effect.
I love making huge batches of chilis and soups especially during the colder months so I can freeze some for later, but prepping all the ingredients is one of my least favorite cooking tasks. Well, “was.”
My time in the kitchen has been cut in half, thanks to the Fullstar Vegetable Chopper ($19.99). The first time I used it, I was able to dice an onion perfectly in under a minute. I was so impressed that I promptly announced to my husband that the gadget has changed my life. Especially with a young daughter, the quicker I can prep meals and get them on the table, the better.
The vegetable chopper comes with a measuring bowl, multiple blade attachments, and two cleaning tools
- Alicia Betz
It comes with a large plastic measuring bowl, spiral blade, ribbon blade, cleaning brush, two different-sized blade grids, and a detail pick to easily clean the blades without risking injuring yourself or ruining your dish sponge.
The design is intuitive and user-friendly. Once you choose which blade grid attachment you’d like to use, just slide it into the base and lock it in place. Then place your vegetable, fruit, cheese, or whatever you want to dice on the base and clamp down on the lid. For hard foods, you might need to push or pound the lid a little bit. For the spiral and ribbon blades, you’ll need to manually turn the food.
My prep time has been cut in half with this chopper tool, and I can spiralize my vegetables too
The vegetable chopper makes it so easy to get uniform pieces, which is essential for making something like potato hash. When the pieces are uneven, you end up with some that are burned and others that are undercooked.
But, as I mentioned earlier, this tool’s best feature is its speed. Every few months, I make a huge batch of veggie pasta sauce full of mushrooms, onions, peppers, squash, eggplant, and broccoli. In the past, I would spend so much time in the kitchen dicing all of those veggies, but with this chopper, I have them all diced and simmering in the sauce in less than half an hour.
The spiral and ribbon attachment blades work fine, but making zoodles took me longer than expected. If you’re planning to spiralize often, you’d get much faster results with a product designed solely for that purpose.
All the extra attachments fit into the big measuring bowl perfectly, so it saves space in my non-existent pantry
I have a lot of kitchen gadgets but without a proper pantry, I don’t have much room to store them. The last thing I need is a huge appliance. I love that all of the blades and attachments fit right into the container, so it’s easy to put away and hardly takes up any room.
Whether you hate dicing vegetables or it just takes you forever, you’ll find this tool really handy. It’s saved me so much time prepping in the kitchen and cleanup is pretty convenient too.
Honestly, you could even buy it in secret so your family thinks you need a full hour in the kitchen to get dinner ready – just chop your veggies in five minutes and use that extra alone time to do whatever you want.
