We believe these choppers are best utilized by a small family, with the number of family members ranging from 2 to 5.

How We Tested

Once all 10 vegetable choppers were with us, we shared them with four different households who used them for a period of two to three weeks on rotation. This was crucial because durability should be an important benchmark, and observations from someone using these on a daily basis would be valuable. We took their feedback into account, and also tested all 10 vegetable choppers in our lab for a week. We used these to chop onions and tomatoes, separately as well as together.


The parameters to judge these vegetable choppers included noise, effort, color/look, and any other USP or differentiation they had to offer.
