Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus
So this is one of my favorite kitchen gadgets. One I sorely ignored for quite awhile before I began using it on a regular basis.
My daughter had given it to me as a gift (she loves hers) but I still continued to cut everything with a knife after I received it. I would cut my finger dicing onions and my daughter would scold me “Ma, use the mini-cuisinart!! ” Then one day I had to chop onions and garlic for a recipe. I loath to cut/mince or whatever garlic. It occurred to me that I could do them together in the Min-Prep. Eureka!! It had been sitting there the whole time, waiting.
Needless to say, I use it regularly now. Not only to chop onions and garlic but to make a small amount of breadcrumbs, whip up a salad dressing, chop nuts, the list goes on.
So here it is on Amazon: Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus. It’s not that much money and comes in a lot of awesome (cute) colors, if you would like to match your kitchen decor. (I leave mine out all the time.)
