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

- 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.
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.
I received the chop magic as a birthday gift and use it all the time . The only hiccup is the dishwasher steam cycle warps the container but I notified chop magic and they will send me a replacement. Thank you chop magic!
Small blade fell completey apart after first use.
After taking out the item to use for the second time this one to use the smaller grid blade. Well it fell completely apart after the first push. This is not what we want and expect restitution. Huh we will or wont get it??????? I doubt it.
The product lacks a proper sturdiness to manage what it is advertised to do. That is just cause not to buy it. Go to the testimonial that tells you where to get a better and CHEAPER product. This has put a damper on my husband and I.
We will no longer buy things advertised on TV? Thanks allot Chop Magic for putting our faith in TV selling.
Worst product ever in life
Like what everyone else said this is a big fat joke. How and why would they show on T.V. all that it can do just to get it home and it does nothing....I wasted more time than I saved.
Won't even begin to cut onions which is why I bought it. Wouldn't give the second one to anyone as it is am embarrassment. First and last time I will order from tv. Won't return it as it will only get me back about $3.00 after s&h off the approx $35. Charge. Major rip off!!
Chop Magic more like crap magic
This thing sucks bad. The blades are not even sharp. You have to pay more to get the sharper blades. If you do use the crappy chopper you have to use a lot of force to get a potatoes to cut.
I feel like a complete fool for wasting my money on this product. It turns vegetables to mush. It doesn't dice or chop anything! And I did watch the video and saw them slicing cucumbers...how did I fall for that? Think about it...both of the lids have the blades in the shape of squares. How could it possibly slice? We tried an onion and it just got stuck in the blades. Then both choppers went right in the garbage. I can't be bothered spending more money to send it back. I'll chalk it up to a lesson learned the hard way. This is false advertising and highway robbery...I didn't even get two of the tortilla makers. They only sent one. Everything about this purchase was just wrong!
You have to be a strong man to use this. Most things it just mashes. Where did they get the sliced cucumbers in the video? It says slice, dice, chop. Haaaa. Sending mine back. Another stupid loss.
I would not recommend this product to anyone...I could barely even cut an onion...I pounded it and pounded it then the damn blade broke ..I got so frustrated I took the whole thing and threw it in the garbage........
I bought this at a discount store for $4.95 and overpaid. The ad on tv is full of lies. It does not chop or dice. I occasionally make French fries but it requires my fist to work the potato through the machine. Other veggies just turn to mush. Save your money!
I was excited to get this as I make a lot of dishes that need chopped/diced/sliced veggies. Forget it, would not dice sweet potato -- even thinly sliced, would not dice onion unless thinly sliced and then the top gets all gunked up with onion and is close to impossible to clean. The only thing it actually cut was apple. Well, it also cut my thumb when I was trying to get stuck vegetable out of it. Don't buy this!!! If I could give it minus 5 stars I would.
More money than brains is what my mom would have said if she knew that I had bought this. Like others i was taken in by the claim that you could chop vegetables in a second. Of course if you add in all the time it takes to get the vegetable small enough to be able to fit and all the time it takes to clean an onion off of it afterwards you will save time doing it the old fashioned way.
My old chopper and dicer broke after a few years of reliable use, and I went to get a new one at Bed Bath and Beyond. I cut an onion in half and set it on the blade and pushed.....and then pushed harder.....and then pounded. The blade broke right through the casing!! I did not order a new blade even though they supposedly have a lifetime guarantee, I simply threw the whole device in the garbage and now must go back to BBandB to spend another $20.00 for the old reliable oval shaped chopper, I think it is called Vidalia something....
DEFINITELY NOT as "Seen on TV"!!!
In the commercial they show different chopmagics. One has short pushers and the other has long ones. They only send you the one with the short one that does not work well at all. They said that it would chop, mince, cube, slice & dice i just seconds! That is a HUGE LIE!! You only receive the mincing and dicing blades with no chance of getting the other, not that I would buy anything else from them!! I diced some potatoes with no issues, but any other veggies I tried to dice or mince were really hard to do. They advertise that it is easy to clean. That is bull also. It took me a good 30-40 minutes to clean stuck veggies from between the pusher lid and blades.
