    Default Picturetastic Review of Slap Chop

    For those of you who don't know what a Slap Chop is, watch this:



    ---

    When I told BeserkerCatSplat that I finally gave in and ordered a Slap Chop, he demanded that I write a review on it. Given that there are tons of Slap Chop reviews on the Internet already, it would be pretty redunant for me to do yet another one.

    What I noticed about the reviews, however, is that they're all text-based. Sure, there are video reviews on YouTube, but none of them show the Slap Chop close up, and they just focus on its performance rather than the actual build. Thus, I figured I would take a bunch of close-up photos for you to see the product in detail - both inside and outside.

    Click on the photos for a high-res version

    Your standard product shot:


    Close-up of the cap. The cap is twisted off to open the Slap Chop:


    Another generic shot:


    View from the bottom:




    With the plastic protector removed:


    The Slap Chop opened:


    Close-up of the blade. The end is fairly sharp, much to my surprise:




    Product description on the box. The thing is made in China, unsurprisingly:


    So I will be using the Slap Chop mainly for making my sandwich spread, which includes sliced celery. It's pretty time-consuming to be slicing really thin pieces, so I wanted to see whether dicing it with the Slap Chop would work just as well. I did three tests, each one with an increasing number of slaps. I used one piece of celery for each one:



    Here's what the celery looks like with 6 slaps:


    12 slaps:


    and 18 slaps:


    Personally, I found 18 slaps to be the right amount for the size of the celery bits I wanted. I had to slap the Slap Chop quite hard so it cuts properly. Good for venting out anger, I guess.

    As expected, bits of celery got stuck in the blade and around the plastic lid:


    I decided to do a fourth test with two sticks of celery instead of one, and rapidly chop it with the Slap Chop, just to see what kind of result I would get. I think I did about 30 slaps before my palm gave in:


    As you can see, the celery is almost like a puree. Perfect for making salsa.

    Cleaning the Slap Chop is definitely really easy to do, as it - quoting Vince - pops open like a butterfly. Just rinse it with water and everything comes right off.

    nice review. next, you should review the cock shot haha http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfYijyWMAjo

    we have one of these chopper things, but it isn't actually a slap chop but instead some other brand. basically the same exact design, though. i don't use it as I find you don't really have control over the chopping. if you're like me and are really anal about the size and shape of your resulting pieces, you won't like this very much at all. it gives a really inconsistent product - there are small pieces, big pieces, etc. of all different shapes. some pieces get stuck on the sides and don't get chopped at all, which is a waste of food or time depending on if you take them out and re-chop them, or send them right to the compost. I much prefer a good knife, heavy chopping board, and (somewhat) skilled hand.

    That's pretty cool, it could totally come in handy for chopping smaller items, but for bigger stuff I think I'd stick to a knife.

    Also, I LOL'd at Vince's creepy, creepy visage on the box.

    That part where he turns the sandwich meat into a spread was disgusting though

    Some people are funny. They spend money they don't have, to buy things they don't need, to impress people they don't like.

    I know...If you look up Ron he lost all his money at one point.... my mother had all those gadgets...the slice-o-matic was so sharp my mother was afraid to use it after she shaved a layer of skin off her finger. They use to sell them at fairs and woolworth stores.

    The Slap Chop? It's US$19.95 + shipping. I bought it off slapchop.com, and I think that's the only place you can buy it.

    You're right - it's $40 for the standard package at Canadian Tire. Guess I'll be going there this weekend. xD

    Nothing anymore.

    I'm sure for shakes and stuff like that it works well, but I think the whole chopping up cheese etc for whatever doesnt work that well. It just puree's the stuff on the bottom and doesn't mix it up at all hahaha.
