Slap Chop Vs Quick Chop! Billy Versus Vince in Kitchen Wars – Which is better?

It could have been predicted that as soon as Vince Schlomi introduced the incredible Slap Chop, Billy Mays would counter with a similar device, the Quick Chop! Both are designed to make chopping and dicing everything from nuts to broccoli a doddle in the kitchen, saving you time and hassle. Do they work? Consumers say yes, but not as neatly as they do in their vibrant infomercials.

The Slap Chop sells for a penny under twenty dollars, while the Quick Chop is $12.99. Both require shipping and handling, but the slap chop comes with a cheese grater and a buy one, get one free deal where you simply pay double shipping. This makes it easier to get one for yourself and as a holiday gift for someone else. The Quick chop also comes with a buy one get one free deal and instead of a cheese grater it comes with folding cutting boards. A pretty useless addition for most consumers. The difference in price is only seven dollars, however, by and large, consumer reviews say that there is a big difference between the two in action.

Both are advertised to chop, chop, and chop even the hardest-to-cut foods like potatoes and nuts, and provide enough sharpness to make salsa and fruit salad without causing a mushy mess. In side-by-side kitchen comparison tests, both worked well with staples like onions and garlic, while the Slap Chop was much more effective at chopping fruit and potatoes, as well as nuts. The verdict, the blade on the Slap Chop is much sharper and definitely worth the extra $7.

On top of that, the Slap Chop blades are interchangeable and have a butterfly effect, allowing them to swing open for cleaning. Both of these handy cookware were prone to food particles and bits getting stuck in the blades during chopping and the Quick Chop was a bit more difficult to clean even though it claims to have a non-stick surface. The bottom line is that with ease and convenience, there will be some cleanup going on, and not every food will be perfectly diced.

Consumers seem to unanimously agree that the Slap Chop offers a sharper blade, a little less mess, and has a more user-friendly design. However, both products work well for everyday kitchen use and are definitely easier than dicing and chopping with a knife. Many customers find that both work best when food is cut at least in half or quarters before being placed in the chamber. While Slap Chopping and Quick Chopping are perhaps safer for most of the population, culinary experts will still turn to their trusty sharp dicing knives in the kitchen. It’s hard to predict the exact size and size of food in the Quick and Slap grinders and you pretty much get stuck with just one consistency.

If you’re in the mood for a quick chop, you’re probably better off going with Vince Schlomi and the Slap Chop, which has stronger blades. While the free cheese grater may come in handy, the free folding cutting boards with Quick chop won’t. For only $7 difference, it’s worth getting the best and most versatile cookware.
