I collect kitchen gadgets and I’m really not what you would ever consider an avid cook. However, I walk into Williams-Sonoma, see something like this professional multi-chopper, and instantly daydream about how it will magically transform me into a master gourmet chef, wearing pearls with a stylish apron while sipping a glass of Cab in one hand while using a spatula in the other, finishing up something delicious with locally grown produce and fresh herbs for a classy dinner party. (I’ve yet to throw this type of party. The biggest parties we’ve ever thrown in this house were pre-baby and involved our ping pong table and mini fridge in the garage. Those were not occasions in which we used our fine china, crystal, or silver.) So, I have cabinets stuffed with random appliances and kitchen gadgets. This is one such gadget. My husband thinks its a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the most ridiculous and 1 being something useful like a frying pan. I actually love the thing, and use it much more frequently than some of the other items I’ve purchased on a whim.

The thing will cube, slice, and do other choppy things. It’s very cool! It’s easy to use, easy to clean, and all of the parts fit inside the chopper so it’s easy to store.
And if you decide to give this as a gift, you have my permission to use my clever headline as a note with the gift:
If life gives you lemons, may they always be perfectly sliced.
How perfect is that?
And wouldn’t this just look so pretty out at brunch:
I actually took that photo Sunday morning, while I was making breakfast in my PJs because I had out the slicer and thought “this would make a great blog post!” I got a chair to grab my Tiffany pitcher, chopped the lemon and took photos. It’s quite possible I’ve lost my marbles. I’m pretty sure if you’re a blogger, you’ve done something similar. Always thinking about post ideas, right? RIGHT? Please confirm I’m not the only one.
