Ganesh Vegetable Chopper Review: Cut Vegetables With Ease
Faster cuts and chops, reduced prep time- the Ganesh Vegetable Chopper is a modern kitchen must-have!
Manual vegetable choppers are undoubtedly one of the most underrated kitchen tools. No electricity needed and maximum safety- here are few reasons to invest in a manual chopper.
Apart from the obvious time and effort-saving aspect, manual choppers are relatively less messy. How, you ask? Well, since the ingredients are chopped inside a container, there are no bits and pieces over the counter. Which means a faster clean up! That said, you still need to wash the blades and container after each use.
Additionally, they are a great way to introduce little ones to the cooking process. And best of all, they are fun to use!
How well the blades are placed, how sharp they are, a push-down or pull motion, are some prime factors when it comes to purchasing a manual chopper for your home.
With over 35,000 ratings online, we were intrigued to try out the Ganesh Vegetable chopper. Can it be used for coarse as well as finely chopping? What about roasted nuts?

For our Ganesh quick chopper review, we tried chopping ingredients across textures. Juicy tomatoes, crunchy onions, roasted chana, almonds, chilies, and the Indian kitchen staples ginger and garlic. We tried ingredients one would use daily as well as for preparing special dishes.
The food item you’ve planned on chopping in this manual chopper must be roughly chopped before adding to the container. If the chunks/pieces are too large, they may get stuck between the blades, disrupt the flow of the cord, and do the opposite of saving time and effort.
One of the plus points of using a manual chopper is liberty. Liberty in terms of how large or finely chopped veggies the dish calls for. For instance, if you’re planning to prepare carrot stuffed parathas or manchurian balls, you’d need the carrots to be as thinly chopped as possible. This would enhance the texture of the prepared manchurian balls, by adding that crunch once fried.
On the other hand, if there’s veggie-loaded fried rice on the menu, that would require smaller cubes of the same.
Although this goes without saying, we’d like to mention manual choppers are not recommended for fruits or vegetables with a higher water content like capsicum, cucumber, and others like eggplant and ladyfinger as they require specific cuts that a manual chopper cannot assist with.

Best Suited For
A manual chopper may provide relatively slow results when compared to its electric variant. However, looking at the bigger picture, a manual chopper is lighter on your pocket, easier to clean, and the best part? No extra consumption of electricity!
This manual chopper is great for when you’re under a time crunch or have a large number of guests to cater to.
Since there is no direct contact with the blades, this manual chopper can be used by kids too. (adult supervision advised)
Mishry Recommends– roughly dicing the vegetables before adding them to the chopper jar is essential. If not, there are chances the chopper won’t work as well and you may have to restart the entire process.
This is because large chunks may get stuck between the blades and obstruct the motion of the cord and in turn the blades.
