One pretty nifty kitchen gadget out there is The Vidalia Chop Wizard.
Now most of the time I don't go for gadgets, give me a knife thank you very much! But this was given to me and I have found it to actually works quite well. And if someone is like my hubby ;) that just can't for the life of him make any kind of even cuts with a knife, this is a good remedy to the problem and hey if there is a gadget that gets your hubby to help out with the dinner prep it must be good! :)
So despite what the commercial on the Chop Wizard says about it being impossible to chop things by hand. It Can be done and on another post I will try to put up some dicing/chopping tips.
Because truth is, in a vegetarian kitchen you could get along just fin if all you had was a good sharp Chef Knife and a Paring Knife.
