Vegetable & Herb Choppers

Every great meal starts as an assortment of ingredients chopped into perfectly sized portions, but what do you do when you don’t want to wield a knife in the kitchen? Try using a vegetable and herb chopper. This kitchen tool chops, dices, slices and wedges everything from potatoes and onions to garlic and parsley, producing uniformly cut pieces that cook evenly and in less time than it takes to do the same work with a knife. Choppers also work as alternatives to food processors, especially when you don’t want to drag out a bulky machine to chop a handful of nuts or a single onion. Our selection of cooks tools at Williams Sonoma includes vegetable and herb choppers with features like ergonomic handles and one-touch press functions that make it easy to process each ingredient.

Functional Features

Look for a vegetable chopper with convenient features. Interchangeable blades provide multiple chopping options so you only need one tool to slice, dice and chop a variety of vegetables, fruits, herbs and nuts, saving valuable prep time. A detachable compartment collects the chopped ingredients in a single spot, reducing clean-up time. Built-in measuring marks let you know exactly how much you chop so you add the right amount of each ingredient to get the flavor blend you want. This also reduces waste since you can stop chopping as soon as you see you have enough of the item. Select a chopper with dishwasher-safe parts if you want to toss it in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.

The Perfect Cut

Select a chopper with blades designed to cut through the ingredients you use most often in the kitchen. If you only plan to dice onions or mince garlic, try a plunger-style chopper that produces both coarsely and finely chopped food depending on how many times you press the top. These double as an herb cutter or nut chopper. For uniformly cut pieces, look for a chopper that uses a blade assembly shaped like a grid. As you push the food through the machine, the blade cuts it into pieces shaped exactly like the grid sections. The result is perfectly cut French fries, apples and tomatoes that cook evenly in the pan. Make your own salsa or chutney with a rotary chopper that uses a rope to spin the blades. As the blades rotate, they coarsely chop the food inside. Look for stainless-steel blades that are more durable and less likely to stain or form rust than other types of blades.

The Right Size

Choose a chopper big enough for the job yet small enough to store in your kitchen. If you cook just a few portions at a time, consider a small chopper with a capacity of 1 to 2 cups. It’s the right size for slicing a single onion or a few cloves of garlic. You can always transfer the chopped food into another container if you need to dice more. At the same time, think about where you plan to store the chopper so that it is convenient to grab when it’s time to start dinner. A large chopper may be convenient to use when you’re cooking for a crowd, but you may get more use out of a smaller one that easily fits in your available cabinet space.

Sharing a home-cooked meal with your loved ones is one of life’s pleasures. Choose a vegetable and herb chopper from our collection so you can spend less time preparing meals and more time enjoying them.
