Chop Magic, an As Seen on TV product, promises to let you chop, mince, cube, slice and dice anything you need to in seconds.
Based out of Wallingford, CT, the makers of Chop magic guarantee that it will save you time and energy by making the chore of chopping easy. You can chop an onion in one second, according to the company’s website, and not have to worry about crying while you do it. The Chop Magic is dishwasher safe and all of the parts store within itself, saving on storage space.

How Chop Magic Works
Chop Magic comes with two different lids that have stainless steel blades embedded into them that sit overtop of a catching container. One is a mincing blade while the other is a dicing blade. You choose which blade you want to use and put that onto the Chop Magic and then you place what you want to chop onto the blades. You then push down on the top of the Chop Magic to propel what is being chopped through the blades and into the container below.
By doing all of your chopping in one motion, the Chop Magic claims to save you time and cleanup by eliminating the need for cutting boards and knives. It also claims to save you tears because you don’t have to cut onions the old-fashioned way.
The Chop Magic only has three parts to it: the catching container, the blade, which sits like a lid on top of the container, and the pushing device that pushes what you are cutting through the blades. It therefore looks like it is extremely easy to set up and use and you can likely begin using it immediately out of the box after washing it.
You can also disassemble it easily to put it into the dishwasher. And it also stacks within itself to store easily.
Chop Magic Pricing, Shipping & Return Policies
The Chop Magic sells for $19.95 + shipping and handling of $7.95. But, for that price, you get what is called the Chop Magic set, which includes: the Chop Magic, a perfect tortilla pan, a recipe guide, a lifetime guarantee and, if you order online, a free mystery gift.
Right now, the website has a deal where you get 2 Chop Magic sets for the price of $19.95 + $7.95 for shipping and handling if you pay an additional $7.95 shipping and handling. That means for $35.85, you will get 2 Chop Magic units, 2 perfect tortilla pans, 2 recipe guides, 2 lifetime guarantees and, if you order online, 2 free mystery gifts.
All orders plus applicable tax are subject to a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee minus shipping and handling fees. You would also have to pay to have your item shipped back to the company.
Customers looking to return their Chop Magic should visit www.customerstatus.com or call 1-866-322-7209. Customer service is available Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 10:00pm Eastern Time.
- It does appear that the Chop Magic could save you time while chopping.
- The blades are covered by a lifetime replacement guarantee.
- It looks easy to use.
- If you decide to return your product, you will have to pay the shipping and handling to return it.
- You will still have to do some chopping prior to using the Chop Magic, as the chopping area in the device is fairly small. So, for example, if you are dicing a cucumber, you will need to cut it into pieces small enough to put on the chopping area of the Chop Magic.
chop magic is a complete scam
Is there any way we can get business like chop magic out of business. Business that is taking money from hard working people. Some people don't even try to send back that piece of bulls!!!! (Porqueria). In my case I didn't even submit the order, but they send me the order anyway because to get any information you have to put all your information including your credit card and then they send it without my permission. When I found out that it was a scam I called them and ask them who give them the right to deceive people like that the only thing they said is that I can return the product and get a full refund, but not until I had to pay my own money to send it back.
The question again why those people should be allowed to put any piece of shit on the market to make millions without anybody trying to stop them? I know we there are department of consumers, but they are the one who allow those kind of product to come in the market in the first place, and complaining to them is so discouraging There must be a better and faster way.
I am sorry I bought this product. I am donating both chop magic units to the Goodwill. I how found that the Vidalia onion chopper works SOOOO much better.
Horrible Experience with Chop Magic!
I wish I had read the reviews. Didn't get two (as promised), didnt get the tortilla pans (as promised)...didn't even get anything that closely resembles the ad. What I got is about the size of a beer can. I couldn't put an onion in it if I tried!! It advertises six cups of storage??? Maybe six ounces. What a rip off!!
Tried this product for potatoes. You better work out, lift weights ect....You need the strength of a FREAKING GORILLA just to get the thing to chop the potato!!!
However.....I suggest a 10 pound SLEDGE HAMMER!!! Put in your potato (Wear safety glasses) grab the SLEDGE HAMMER & SLAM THE "CHOP MAGIC"
Yes! it'll break into a million pieces, but after trying to go through a bag a potatoes....It's better to save the rage unpack, & SLEDGE AWAY! After I smashed this.... my blood pressure dropped to normal! --Great name CHOP MAGIC....They need to put small print below the name "If this CHOPS anything, it's MAGIC.
I bought the chop magic at Wal-Mart I didn't have the hassle of shipping and handling for this bad product. I have tried the slicer and the dice and it just smashed the tomatoes and I tried to dice my onions and I had to slice the onions thin before I could dice them and then I had to pound the top to even make it chop the onions. I buy a lot of things that are on the TV, but usually wait until it comes to the stores and they never work like they say and now I have been checking out the reviews before I buy and it has saved me a lot of money now. So thank you all for your reviews, maybe these scams that they are trying to sell us will finally stop them from taking our money.
Couldn't chop anything. Called to return and no help from company
Can't chop. Too hard to push through veggies. I have arthritis and couldn't work it.it looked so easy to use but it is no good.
This is a horrible product. The blades break too easily and they aren't sharp enough to cut a tomato. It can cut an onion..but you will break blades doing it. Not worth a 1.00 let alone whatever I paid for it.
Very unhappy with this product
For 1 thing it says it will slice, not unless you buy the slicing blade for another $10.00. I have sore hands, and you have to pound the item through. They are getting it all back!!!
Received this as a Christmas present the most deadly kitchen appliance I ever saw. the blade fell out & went into the food after using it. almost killed me. NEVER AGAIN-STAY AWAY
Unexpectedly Paid for 2 - Received 0 after a month
I can't tell you how this product works because after about a month of placing the order online, I still have not yet received a single Chop Magic. In addition to the long wait time for delivery, I got duped into paying the shipping and handling for two, when all I thought I was ordering was one. When I called Customer Service 10 minutes later to see if they could refund the additional shipping charge for the extra Chop Magic and adjust the order, I was told that was not possible. What really got me was that the Customer Service rep chose to totally overlooked the complaint about the gimmicky online ordering procedure. All I got as a response was, "You can always make a gift of the other one!"
Chop Magic Not at all what is expected!!!
It broke the first time we tried to chop some onions and celery. You have to slam down really hard to even get the veggies to go through the screen. It is NOTHING like what they advertise on TV. What a joke!!! DO NOT BUY ONE it is a WASTE of MONEY!!!!
This chopper is the worst chopper I have every used. I ordered it about a month ago and when I finally used it I was angry. You cannot chop anything unless you slam your hand down on it. I could not chop a potato at all. When you finally, after some force, chop an onion or garlic, or anything, everything sticks to the top of the blade and you have to use your fingers to remove the remainder of the food. I also saw on You Tube moms testing it out and had just the same difficulty as I did. One other problem, there is no way of getting my money back. This is an awful product. I wish I had researched before purchasing this product. People must know how awful it is.
Very glad to have read the reviews
I was about to buy this product, but I decided to see the reviews first ( I never do ). I just saved myself a headache and a disappointment. Thank you everyone.
Does not dice, so don't believe the videos or description. Makes a mess squishing instead of chopping.
Works ok, not great but it does work
I read the reviews AFTER I bought it. I figured I would be seriously disappointed and was prepared to send it back if it didn't work. Granted, you do have to do a little cutting before using the chop magic as sometimes you have veggies that are bigger than the chopping surface, but it worked. You do have to use force so their claim of cutting things like it's a hot knife through butter is a lie. I use only the larger dicing blade. It did great for my green peppers and my onions were diced easily, again with some prior cutting for the onions. Cutting the onion in half helps as there is less to shove through the holes at one time. It is easy to clean and to store. If you are not that strong or if you have arthritis or other similar issues, this gadget is not for you. I will say it did cut my time down a little but not like they claim on TV. I will keep it as I do love how it cuts my peppers for my stir fry. If you are expecting this to be a miracle cutter and to work like you're cutting
soft butter with a hot knife, then you will be disappointed.
Throw it away, its a piece of junk.
My husband was fool for thinking that these people were being honest with the chop magic. It is a piece of junk, and a total lie of what it can do. They must be using trick photography to fool innocent buyers on T.V. I am really surprised that any T.V. station would allow this scam, letting them continue to rip off innocent people, with this ridiculous product.
I work for a major retail store, and I will make sure, the customers know what a piece of garbage this product is.
Beware - False advertisement on the web site and TV!
Ordered 1 chopmagic deluxe with special super sharp bladed and the slicer blades. paid for shipping for the free one just like the one I ordered. They do not ship the slicer blade or pusher. When you complain they send you another set just like the one you do not want and charge you again for what you wanted but not for what they shipped.
If you complain they send you more of what you do not want. (They shipped me a total of 8 choppers, I was told they keep sending them to make up for what you did not get) I requested a prepaid postage return address lable, I sent everything back. I got the refund for my original order minus shipping. (they will not refund the postage because you opened the box even thought they sent you the incorrect order) but they can not refund the second charge or withdraw (even thought all items were in the same box) for 3-5 business days and then not for shipping. stay away from them. Find a "AS SEEN ON TV STORE" if you want one.
Never received product, representative completely unapologetic
I ordered the product in October 2013, as of February 2014 still hadn't received it. When calling customer service found out that they had the wrong address. Instead of apologizing for the misunderstanding I was told if they would have known they had the wrong address in the system this would not have happened.
Seeing as how I KNOW where I live, I hardly think the fact the my address was wrong on their end is my fault. She then preceded to get very pushy and rude with me asking what exactly do I want. A REFUND.
At this point i'm over banking on your ability to take my information and send me the product in a timely manner when your customer service has been obscenely awful thus far.
Do not spend your money on this
Im so bummed I didn't think to read the reviews before I spent my hard earned money on this worthless piece of junk.
The Chop Magic broke the first time I used it. It be would if you were making tomato soup. Save time and money and use a knife instead.
