    Chances are you've probably had an exponential rise in house duties in the past few months and this has given you a newfound respect for all the work it takes to run a home on a daily basis. It's definitely not as easy as it looks and it has made me truly understand the behaviour of the contestants on Bigg Boss.

    I mean, who wouldn't get annoyed after washing the bartans for 12 people?!

    So, to make our lives a little easier, we ended up getting this chopper from the brand Pigeon for ₹380 since soo many people raved about it. I decided to put it to the test and here's what I discovered:

    First off, we have the most annoying vegetable of all time— onions! They make you cry, they make you sigh and roll your eyes but they're essential to pretty much everything cooked in your home.

    All you do is dice them into cubes, put them into the chopper, and tug at the string a few times.

    And voila! It literally only took a few seconds and it's now ready to be added to any dish of your choice. No fingers or eyes were hurt in the filming of this.

    You can also use it to dice tomatoes and chillies, which again are pretty common ingredients in any cuisine. Tomato is technically a fruit, so it should work on fruits too.

    And in this house, we don't discriminate against leafy vegetables. I also tested it out with some cabbage and it worked perfectly!

    And it also works with harder things like peanuts so you don't have to put up with the annoying noises of your mixer.

    It's not just my family who loves this handy little chopper. It has a rating of 4.5 stars with over 53,296 reviews! 86% are 4-star and above, and nearly 21,000 reviews are 5-star reviews.

    P.S. We gifted this to our grandma after we realised how useful it was and she uses it daily too!

    So in conclusion: this chopper is used every single day in our home because it brings down meal prep time considerably, it's easy-to-use and it saves you from perpetual the fear of cutting yourself by accident. Get the blue one here ₹395 and the grey one here for ₹348.

    Goodbye to crying when chopping onions or anything else, really!
