About Chop Magic

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.

Pros

  • 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.

Cons

  • 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.

  • Too difficult to use

    • Alameda, CA,
    • Jul 22, 2015

    Excitedly I put it together, that was the easy part. I wanted to make salsa so I chose the smaller blade to chop onion, tomatoes, and jalapeños.

    Two things wrong:

    1. You have to pound on the top to get the food to go through. My arms hurt afterwards even though I'm pretty strong.
    2. Skin or the the food get stuck in the pusher. I used a fork, brush, fast water, none did a good job. I had to bang it against the sink walls to get most of it out.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

  • Not worth purchasing

    • Newburgh, IN,
    • Jul 6, 2015

    Purchased the Chop Magic and it was very difficult to use. It was very hard trying to get vegetables chopped. They had to be cut in small pieces to even get the blades to cut. The hinges are plastic and broke after the second use.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Chop Magic

    • Yuma, AZ,
    • Mar 17, 2015

    This is a absolute piece of junk. I bought it thinking it would be nice to make Julienned carrots. And I am sure they would be lovely if only the cutter allowed them to go through without a jack hammer. The blades bend and come out of the plastic holder. They are weak and thin. The carrots also get stuck in the top piece and are nearly impossible to clean out there.

    This is the second one that I purchased as I thought that the carrots in the first time around were a bit soft and caused the blades to break.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    A waste of time/money.

    A Scam - Don't Buy

    • Jensen Beach, FL,
    • Jan 26, 2015

    Money-wise: Two slicers arrived in one package and I was charged shipping and handling twice. They did not say this on TV.

    Performance: crushes more than slices the veggies; tomatoes are impossible to slice.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Don't criticize what you don't understand.

    • Jan 18, 2015

    I have no idea why there are so many negative reviews for this! "The blades fell out!" Uh, they're REMOVABLE. They're SUPPOSED to come out. Not, obviously, during use. But if you can actually manage to get them to "fall" out during use, I'm pretty sure you can manage to burn a pot of boiling water, too. Granted, if you use the small blades, it can be tough to get whatever you're chopping to go through. I use mine to make French fries every day. When I use the large blade, it takes about three seconds per pound of potatoes. Almost like "magic." Trying to force a large potato through the small blades, on the other hand, can be VERY difficult. I've never had it not work, though. I've used it for other fruits and vegetables, too, and never had a problem (other than the aforementioned struggle with the small blades). I've used it for dicing, too, and it worked very well. I absolutely hate the squeaky noise that is produced when scrubbing the pusher block (nails on a chalkboard, anyone?), and wish the small blades worked with less effort, but those are the only negative things I can say about the Chop Magic! That, and there are no optional blades available. Personally, I'd love a blade for cutting wedges! Or one smaller than the large blade, but larger than the small blade. This works exactly as advertised, and (so long as you use the large blade) just as effortlessly as in the commercials.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    • IL,
    • Jan 12, 2015

    I love this chopper, it saves a lot of time, the only problem I have with it is I put it in dishwasher like it says you can and it shrunk the base, so I had to go buy another one, I will never do that again!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
