Slap Chop introduced by our old pal Vince, brings us his newest innovation. I have to admit that Vince really had me at the tuna and veges part of the infomercial. I REALLY wanted to pick up the phone and order this kitchen gadget.... You see, it’s perfect for anyone preparing single meals like myself. Be amazed as you watch Jack Scalfani test out the Slap Chop and see if it really does what it claims to do.
What is Slap Chop?
The Slap Chop is a manual chopping machine. You slap the plunger and three blades cut and chop your food. Your food gets finer the more you slap the plunger. The Slap Chop's base also opens up. This exposes the blades for easy cleaning.

Slap Chop Video Reviews
Heartland News did a really great review on Slap Chop. Please read Eric and Chicette's comments at the bottom of this post. It seems the quality of the Slap Chop is pretty bad. I've heard of food not chopping well even with the tricks that Jack Scalfani uses.
Jack Scalfani tested the Slap Chop with the following:
Celery - Jack learns how to smack that Slap Chop just right in order to break the skin of the celery. On the first chop it gets stuck in the blade. The next few chops did a great job of dicing celery the way he likes it.
Garlic - He takes one garlic clove to chop. He breaks the skin in a couple of chops. He then takes the skin off and effectively chops it into really small pieces.
Tomato – He first cuts it in half with a knife. When he put the soft side of the tomato up and it doesn’t work. It just smashes it up into a big mess. You have to turn the round side up in order to dice it up properly.
Nuts – Jack chops the hell out of them and produces beautiful, finely chopped nuts for his stuffing.
Onion – He first cuts the onion in half with a knife. He chops it really hard a few times and takes the skin off. It didn’t really dice it properly and he found pieces of onion every where. You may need to take the skin off first and cut it in smaller pieces before you Slap Chop it.
Graty Cheese Grater - This is your free bonus. Fit cheese in, press and rotate. Shreds the cheese really well. It's the same amount of effort as a cheese grater.
A nice thing about the [tags]slap chop[/tags]cover that fits over the bottom, is that when you have really small pieces of food, garlic or nuts it keeps it all together and chops it efficiently. It also saves your home cutting board from getting messy as well.
I have to show a recent Consumer Reports review as well.
Everyone’s making fun of poor Vince because of his latest brush with the law. I'm thinking it’s actually a marketing gimmick to sell more Slap Chops. You can read about it here at The Smoking Gun. Poor Vince looks pretty sad and beat up.
Slap Chop looks it's got some quality control problems and some angry consumers. There have been parts breaking and I've even heard of the blades rusting not too long after buying the product!
