More Than 16,000 Amazon Shoppers Swear By This Time-Saving Chopper
Yes, slicing and dicing foods like carrots, tomatoes, and apples with a razor-sharp knife is satisfying. Maybe even soothing, if you enter a flow state. But it's not something we relish in a rush-especially when we want to jump right into cooking our meal.
That's why this time-saving tool from Fullstar caught our eye. It perfectly dices fruits and vegetables with a stainless steel grid, and has a jaw-dropping 16,000 five-star ratings on Amazon. In fact, several users have even called the chopper "life-changing."
With the Fullstar Pro Chopper, even beginner cooks can produce pro-level cuts. It includes two different stainless steel blades for large and small dicing, as well as two more attachments for spiralizing. The interchangeable blades snap into the BPA-free plastic container, and are secured with a safety lock. All you need to do is push for consistently chopped fruits and vegetables.

"I cannot say enough good things about this," wrote one customer. "I used it yesterday for the first time. My potatoes and bell peppers were washed, diced, and in the oven within 10 minutes."
A second said, "This great little chopper saves me lots of time in the kitchen. Prep work is something I dread so much that I will sometimes change a recipe. This great little tool makes prep easier and MUCH faster."
In addition to cutting down on prep time, the device is designed to keep cleanup to a minimum. Rather than trying to maneuver your knife around piles of peppers or onions on the cutting board, your fruits and vegetables drop right into the Fullstar Pro Chopper's container. It holds a generous five cups and also features a rubberized non-slip base so your food won't go flying with an extra-strong push. Best of all, unlike a standard cutting board, the entire device is dishwasher safe.
Amazon reviewers say they use the gadget to chop a wide variety of foods, from apples to zucchini, but they gush about how well it dices onions. One wrote, "It has a permanent place on my countertop and in my heart. We love to cook with onions, and this has transformed my life."
