Stainless-Steel Alligator(R) Chopper

A great way to save time in the kitchen, this professional-quality stainless-steel tool makes rapid work of everyday food prep-and allows you to chop onions without shedding a tear. With a single quick motion, its razor-sharp stainless-steel grid produces perfect dice cuts. It's indispensable for cutting onions, potatoes, carrots, cucumbers and bell peppers, as well as apples and other hard fruits. Two additional interchangeable grids make it easy to customize the size of the dice, including an extra-small dice for garlic, chilies and more. Ingenious chopper quickly dices everything from onions, potatoes and apples to fresh garlic cloves and chili peppers. Three interchangeable stainless-steel grids allow you to create a perfect 1/2", 1/4" or 1/8" dice. Sturdy, versatile tool is safe and easy to use-and a breeze to clean. Includes a plastic collector to hold prepped foods until you're ready to use them.

Had a plastic version without the collection box. Finally upgraded to this one and it's heavenly. Cuts easily. I have no trouble at all with the collection box. I just love it.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Time-saver

not user friendly with top collection box
December 4, 2013
I have been using the Vidallia Onion Chopper which is similar design to the WS Vegetable Chop & Measure plastic unit with the collection box on the bottom. I love mine but wanted the security of an all stainless steel chopper to avoid any broken hinge problems in the future.
This cuts well but is awkward struggle to remove the Alligator collection box from the unit as three prongs hold it in place. This was the deal killer for me.
With my Vidallia and with the W/S Chop & Measure, you simply lift and remove the collection box cover which holds the cutting grid, exposing a collection box that holds twice as much and easily comes off/on. Much easier to use.
Another problem I had with the Alligator was having some chopped vegetables fall from the top collection box through the cutter due to gravity.
Recommend Vidallia or WS C&M for ease of use & less expense.
Pros: Durable, Quality, Easy to Clean
Cons: Difficult to Use, Temperamental
