We performed a set of activities to develop a list of the ten best vegetable choppers this 2020. Our first step was to learn what the common description of a vegetable chopper was today, and how lots of kitchen lovers expected it to work. Also, we identified the key benefits of a vegetable chopper and the major advantages that the most popular products have over competing brands.
This enabled us to move on to the next step in our process, which was to extensively research the most widely used vegetable choppers in the market this year. We went to Amazon among other eCommerce platforms that focused on offering kitchen products. Plus, we went to a variety of online communities where we frequently hang out to talk about kitchen-related stuff. Our objective in this step was to look closer at ratings and reviews left by lots of buyers all around the world who were kind enough to share their experience in using their preferred vegetable choppers.
After this step, we had a shortlist of the top vegetable choppers of the year. But we knew that this list needed to be trimmed down based on actual tests. So that’s our third step — We created a list of step-by-step testing procedures.
At this stage, we needed to build a team of testers. So we contacted our friends and announced our activity across the relevant online networks that we frequented. We knew that our team needs a mix of pro chefs and those with beginner to intermediate kitchen skills, so that’s what we did.
So we formed a group of testers that performed a series of tests. Now, this is what our final list of the ten best vegetable choppers of the year looks like:

#1 – FullStar Spiralizer Vegetable Slicer
The FullStar does it all. It comes with five blades that will work on a wide variety of food. There are two dicer blades, large and small. There is also a blade for julienne (thin sticks), mandoline (cucumber slices), and a grater.

This set is a true value for money. If you aren’t satisfied for any reason, Fullstar offers a 100% money-back guarantee.
What We Like About It:
The box was like a never-ending gift with all the extras. One thing everyone agreed on was the practicality of the blade organizer. It keeps all the blades safely inside so you aren’t tempted to throw them in a drawer.
We also marveled at the number of things we could do with the Fullstar chopper. For the non-professionals, we could sake spirals, and ribbon cut veggies that made our dishes look amazing. Many online reviews used it to make zucchini noodles, which we hadn’t thought of.
The chefs were pleased with its efficiency. It chopped through all vegetables without having to exert any force. Fires and wedges were cut in a matter of seconds. Thanks to the protective guard, we all sliced smaller things like garlic and didn’t feel unsafe.
It’s so easy to clean; you don’t even have to use the dishwasher. You can rinse it off with soapy water, and the little brush works its way around the blades.
Altogether, we loved the Fullstar vegetable chopper for its price and ease of use. It was brilliant for saving meal prep time and elevating the appearance of our dishes.
#2 – Mueller Austria Premium V-Pro Vegetable Chopper

What We Like About It:
When we opened the package, the first thing we noticed was the quality of the materials. It was lightweight, but it still felt sturdy. While we were expecting the two blades, it was a nice surprise to receive the little cleaning brush.
Most of us started with an onion. The professionals had no issues here because of their experience in the kitchen. However, we loved the fact that we didn’t cry! When dicing harder vegetables, it was a lot easier than we expected.
One online reviewer used the Muller chopper on the cooked steak to add to a baguette. Another cut cooked chicken for a salad. So its versatility was well tested.
The blades were easy to change over too. Overall, it was a very easy chopper to use. Being able to put it all in the dishwasher was another time saver.
#3 – Geedeel Hand Vegetable Chopper
The first on our list is one of the newest vegetable choppers to 2019. It is multi-functional and works as a chopper, mincer, and blender. You can use it with onions, olives, carrots, garlic, meat, and eggs. Fruits can be turned into salads and ice into ice chips.

In the lid, there is a hole. This hole is for adding foods gradually without having to take the main lid off. There is a large red handle that complements the red lid.
What We Like About It:
The chefs in our test group weren’t too sure that this would do the same job as a hand whisk, but it did a great job. They liked the fact that there were three blades instead of just 2. In terms of chopping ability, the Geedeel diced and chopped to the right size, even hard vegetables and meat.
Cleaning was a breeze. The chopper was easy to take apart, and each part can go in the dishwasher. Our kitchens were spotless after using this.
There aren’t hundreds of online reviews just yet because it is so new. However, everyone is speaking highly of this vegetable chopper. The general opinion is that it is lightweight, easy to use, and clean, and it can be used for a lot more than it’s advertised for.
As well as being effective and well-priced, we were pleased that it came with a 1-year warranty and lifetime technical support.
#4 – ZYLISS Easy Pull Vegetable Chopper
This vegetable chopper can make chunks, small-diced food, or purees. It has a 25-ounce capacity, yet it’s small and compact enough to travel with you. You can use the ZYLISS to prep food, make sauces, smoothies, and breadcrumbs, and even ice cream.

What We Like About It:
What stuck out most of all was the simplicity of the design. There were no complicated parts to fit together. We were ready to use it the moment we took it out of the box.
The booster arms worked. This meant we didn’t have to get a knife out and start pushing food around. For many, this was a huge advantage.
The blades were extremely sharp about had no trouble chopping everything from tomatoes to potatoes. We were surprised at how accurate the instructions were. We pulled the string 5, 8, and 12 times, and the food was chopped to the correct size.
The non-slip bottom reassured us, although you don’t have to pull the string hard. The handle was larger than others and felt comfortable in our hands. It’s a quality little chopper that is well priced for its design.
#5 – Fun Life 4-in-2 Vegetable Chopper
This vegetable chopper has a range of options for dicing and slicing. You can create spirals, juliennes, and ribbons. The box design has a 0.83L capacity, large enough to individually prep ingredients, or make an entire salad.

The blades are very sharp, and there was no difficulty in cutting all different types of food. The blades were simple to change, and it was easier than we thought to get different shapes, like the ribbons.
We saved a lot of time preparing food. Previously, people would use a knife rather than a processor because it was quicker to clean up. With this cutter, you can cut things like garlic, and clean-up is much faster.
We were concerned about the size. It is certainly not as easy to store as others but is not too big to sit on the kitchen side or into a cupboard.
It does the job exactly as you would want, and online reviews, as well as the testers, liked the price.
#6 – Brieftons QuickPull Vegetable Chopper
The Briefton food chopper is ideal for chopping and blending vegetables, fruit, nuts, and herbs. You can use it to make your dips like hummus or guacamole. All plastic parts are BPA free, and the three blades are sharp stainless steel. This is the large version with a 4-cup capacity.

What We Like About It:
Everyone who tested the Briefton chopper was amazed at how well it chopped all different foods. What was nice is that it didn’t go all mushy like in a food processor. The food kept its form, just in smaller bites. It was easy to choose between finely chopped food and course food; you just had to pull more or fewer times.
The professionals had great fun making entire salads in one got. All they did was add all of the ingredients and pull the string until they got the right size food. They found that if you want different sized ingredients, you could add the larger foods in towards the end.
A few of our testers were skeptical at first. So were a couple of online reviewers. After testing, they were completely convinced that this was a better option than hand chopping.
It is much easier to control the chopping than with an electric chopper. It is also a lot easier to clean, which saved us time.

The size, shape, and style of the foods we could make was brilliant. We felt that the set contained everything we needed plus some extras. The chefs may not have needed the egg separator, but we found it useful.
We also liked how uniform the vegetables came out. It helped to have the anti-slip base, so there was no movement when we were using the chopper.
Because of everything that was included, we felt that this is a great gift for practically everyone.
#8 – Edofiy Manual Vegetable Chopper
You might think that the Edofiy manual vegetable chopper is more work, but one turn of the handle is equal to 12 cuts with a knife. Rather than flat blades, there are three suction cup cylindrical blades. Blades are inserted into the unit and turned clockwise to lock.

Testers and online reviewers were impressed with the shredder. It worked well on potatoes for making hash browns. It took a lot less effort than we had imagined.
The cylinder blades were ideal for people with joint problems, as it wasn’t fiddly to change them. They were easy to identify as well, so it’s a good set for people who don’t have the best eyesight!
It’s a lovely bright vegetable chopper, and it was great fun to use. Some thought it was a little expensive, but we disagreed and felt the price was justified.
#9 – Culinary Cooking Tools Vegetable Cutter
Here you have a basic looking vegetable chopper, but it has all the right features. At each end of the chopper, there are two folding arms. Once you pop out the arms, the chopper sits angled for easy cutting. It can be used for making fries, grating cheese, and slicing fruit.

The V-shaped blade design provided uniform slices, and it was easy to switch out the blades to create different shapes and sizes.
It is certainly worth the money for the range of blades you get and the quality of the materials. We also got a lot of ideas from the eBook that comes with it.

If you can’t create the desired size and shape with this set, you’ll struggle to find another that will. There are a total of 11 accessories to dice, mince, chop, grate, and shape. Included are three dicing blades, two julienne blades, a grater, a slicer, and a grinding blade.

What We Like About It:
Like others, we were dubious about buying from a very known brand, but there was no need. The blades were excellent quality, and the plastic felt sturdy. It slices and dices potatoes and carrots easily.
The instruction manual is easy to follow, and we were more than impressed with the level of customer service. The reps were very friendly and knew what they were talking about.
Even the caddies to store the blades were good quality and practical. The cleaning brush was more like a plastic scraper, so it worked better at getting food out of the blades.
The thing we loved the most it that this is way more than just a slicer. This is such a great set for any kitchen with so many recipes and meals you can create. We felt that this is perfect for someone who is just starting in a new home or a student moving away. In comes with so many tools, you will save money and space.
You could spend less on a chopper, but you certainly wouldn’t get such a great deal.
Warning: We feel there is one important thing to mention about our list. While reading through hundreds of product reviews, we noticed there were many negative reviews because the blades were sharp! All of the blades are incredibly sharp, and if you are expecting them to slice through potatoes, imagine what they can do with a finger. Even with several safety features, care must be taken.
We greatly valued the online reviews as they pointed to aspects that we were then able to test. Overall these choppers made it onto the list because of the results that came about from our friends and family using them. This feedback is how we were able to put together the top 10 vegetable choppers for 2019.
And after performing a series of thorough tests that simulated actual situations, we were able to finalize our list of the ten best vegetable choppers for your kitchen this 2020. We’re confident that this can allow you to make a more informed decision while you’re taking a closer look at our list of the top 10 vegetable choppers this year.
What is Vegetable Chopper?
Simply put, a vegetable chopper is a kitchen tool that’s designed to make it quicker, simpler, and more convenient for you to chop up your favorite vegetables. This is similar to a cheese slicer with wires for its cutter. Many of the products on our list are designed with a bay where you can place your vegetables and another containment unit where you can easily get the slices.
But we learned as we were finalizing our list of the ten best vegetable choppers of 2020 that each product has a unique variety of features. So we went on to identify the most vital factors that need to be considered when trying to choose the right vegetable chopper for your particular needs. We focused on the most important ones, and here they are:
How to Select the Best Vegetable Chopper
- Size & Shape — Just like vegetables, no chopper is created equal. So this also means there are certain choppers that are meant for particular types of vegetables. You’ll notice this with the variety of sizes and shapes that are available for the most widely used vegetable choppers this year. So you’re advised to carefully consider the most common types of vegetables that you often use for your recipes and the types of slices and cuts that you need.
Plus, you should consider the servings that you need to prepare often. Remember, getting a vegetable chopper that can accommodate the right capacity based on your exact needs will allow you to prepare your vegetables more conveniently. Also, choppers that are built to accommodate large quantities of vegetables tend to be sturdier and more durable than those that are just manufactured for small servings. So keep these things in mind while you’re browsing through our roundup of the ten best vegetable choppers today;
- Features & Additional Benefits — What differentiates a product from its competitors is the benefits and advantages that it can provide its intended user. Using the example earlier, a vegetable chopper that’s manufactured for prolonged heavy use tends to last longer. Its cutting wires are also more durable. But of course, expect to pay a higher price for these products. Though keep in mind, you wouldn’t want to pay for something that you won’t be using, so know your exact needs before deciding on which product in our list to purchase;
- Food-Grade Materials & Safety Design — Even if these are cutting wires, they’re still sharp and can cause accidental cuts if you aren’t careful. This is also the main reason why many manufacturers integrate safety design protocols into their products. This makes it harder for you to cut yourself while using their vegetable choppers. Many manufacturers designed cutting wires and blades that would be impossible to pierce your skin.
But another important factor that you should carefully consider is the food-grade material that was used to produce the vegetable chopper. Since this comes in direct contact with your food, you wouldn’t want harmful chemicals and other toxic elements to endanger the health of your loved ones, right? Plus, check vegetable choppers with steel parts and accessories as you wouldn’t want rust to contaminate your food;
- Warranty & Guarantees — When a manufacturer guarantees its products to be integrated with food-grade materials, safety design to avoid accidental cuts, optimum sturdiness, and maximum durability, then all you need to do is check whether these claims are indeed accurate. Plus, you need to take a closer look at the warranties that each manufacturer offers for their products. That’s because this is indicative of their trust and confidence in their products, and also on the results of their thorough tests; and
- Price & Value-Added Freebies — Once you manage to consider the factors above to trim down you’re shortlist of the best vegetable choppers, you’re advised to compare the price tags and other freebies (if any) of each vegetable chopper in your pruned list. Don’t forget to check out other value-added benefits, such as free-cutting wire replacements, recipe eBooks, and so on.
After learning about the things above, we moved on and tried to identify the most popular vegetable choppers in the market this 2020. We knew that this was just a draft list, but we successfully pruned this shortlist down to a more manageable size after applying the things we learned at this point.
Do You Need a Vegetable Chopper?
If you often mix vegetables with your recipes and prepare salads among other similar treats, then using a vegetable chopper instead of a knife can give you a much better experience. You’ll also be able to get much better output from less effort as these products are designed to evenly slice your favorite vegetables just the way you want it. Plus, you’ll avoid all the accidents that can happen when you use a knife to cut up your vegetables.
Having a vegetable chopper handy in your kitchen can even prolong the life of your knives. Remember, you need to wash a knife before and after you use it to slice your vegetables. Now, this extra wear and tear can drastically affect the durability of your knives.
So even if you don’t often use vegetables for your recipes and treats, then you’re still recommended to choose the most suitable product from our roundup of the ten best vegetable choppers for your kitchen this 2020. After all, these products come with reasonable price tags anyway. Plus, you and your family can gain a lot of health benefits when you begin to use vegetables more frequently for the food you serve.
Just don’t forget to go back to our list of the most crucial factors to consider while browsing through our list of the top 10 vegetable choppers this year. This can help you pinpoint the unique benefits and advantages that each product has over the other.
