Vidalia Chop Wizard

Posted on 2007/03/24 22:39:15 (March 2007).

[Friday 23rd March]
Not a very productive day at work, probably I'm too old for going out on a school night now! Oh well, have put in a lot of overtime the rest of this week so I suppose it can be forgiven.

For rather complicated reasons, which I probably can't explain here because of my NDA, I was given a kitchen gadget at work a while back. It's a Vidalia Chop Wizard - I find the video advert on the website bizarrely entertaining.

It's one of those sorts of kitchen miracle thingies that gets advertised on daytime TV (does anyone else remember the "Raptou"...?). It had stayed on my desk at the office for the last few weeks, but today I thought I finally ought to take it home. At the risk of sounding like I've got shares in the company, it does actually seem like quite a good idea. Tonight I wanted to eat sauteed potatoes, and it cut them up a treat. We also had some Quorn fillet thingies (with goat's cheese - nice touch) and good old broad beans with parsley sauce - very nice.

Oh, and look what I found on YouTube:

Go on, you know you want one.

The Utube video is TERRIBLE advertising... The old crusty hag using it must be a wimp because she cannot chop the quarter onion that she cut herself!

By the way did you know that now they make a VEGETARIAN Quorn? Yes is basically the eyeballs of the animal (the Quorn), from which is extracted the pupil and then squashed while the beast is still attached to the eyeball through the optic nerve (if the quorn dies it's not good you see). Then they make Veggie Quorn, as opposed to the Quorn that you normally buy which is minced Quorn.

Comment 4

I am commenting about the comment by Lox. I think he is a jerk by saying I am a crusty old hag. What a jerk. I like the chop wizard but you have to put the onion on the right way and it is hard to push down while you are holding a movie camera in the other hand and trying to focus and film it. It is easier if you use both hands.
