Shop, Chop, Shop

Cutting herbs is not my forte. I was frustratingly attempting to cut parsley to add to a ground turkey medley for dinner when I decided to either never cut anything again (!!!) or find an easier way to do it.

So, I ventured onto a few sites, looking for a solution. Nowadays there seems to be a gadget for every cutting need, and look at the fun toy I found: Rachael Ray’s Furi Froggy Mezzaluna.

It has two blades, rubber handle and a half moon shape for a quick cut. Just put the blades over the item you want to chop, and rock it back and forth! The rubberized grip, makes it non-slip, and easy to use. It is supposed to cut anything from herbs to chocolate and nuts. Ooooh, I’m loving it.

It definitely looks like genius. Now let’s see how genius the price is. I found a variety of prices from $50 at bigger retail stores to $19.99 at PriceGrabber.com (a shopping comparison network). The lowest priced options are;

1. Gold Violin $34.99 includes the froggy and a non-slip mat
2.
PriceGrabber $ 18.99-$39.00 from different retailers, but all include froggy, cutting board and a non-slip mat (18.99 offered by Amazon)

$18.99 sounds like a good price to me! Let me know how you like it- I’m shop, chop, chopping away!

This is not my kind of chopper. I use a regular chopping knife and chop parsley by rocking my blade. For mint and leafy herbs I do a chiffonade.
