Katsuragi Takumi says:

On the Industrial Vegetable Chopper i believe Dan got the FAULTY one

There's actually an another unit of that gadget where it has a LEVER FUNCTION and it can slice any kinds of Vegetables evenly

Papillon 2010 says:

Were u seriously trying not to use the commercial chopper correctly? Ridiculous. I can't even finish this video; what a joke. I have a chopper like this and it works extremely well. You were not being serious so time for me to go.

Santosh Acharya says:

In the place of industrial chopper use an axe

Guillermo México says:

When you pardon yourelf to a potato for attempting to use a poduct on it, you know the product just isn't good.

Adrian C says:

Kitchen Kitanas!

Joni Angels R Real says:

The chopper:
You’ll poke yr eyes out kid…

Big Bomb says:

No gramps, you can't make that joke

Nomina sunt Odioza says:

1. No metal on chopper blade it will chop the glass which will get to the salad.
2. industrial chopper – is one of the best devices I have!! It speeds up chopping process 10 times. Potatoes, cucumbers, onions, boiled eggs carrots and tomatoes but you have to get used to it. You can get 25lb of perfect rectangular pieces of potatoes in 3 minutes. forget the knives.
3. Blades should be rounded as pizzaz cutter with multiple blades.

ProgressiveHeart says:

My mom showed me how to remove the core from a head of iceberg lettuce. With the core facing down, slam the lettuce onto a flat surface (counter/cutting board). Great for getting out aggression, too.

ProgressiveHeart says:

If you’re going to slice the cucumber anyway, why not just go ahead and dice it??

Puja Ganesh says:

This guy doesn't know how to use half the products I think, also also test how easy it is to clean the products.

After Burner says:

id give you 0 out of 5 for even testing the first one.

Mars Ditmore says:

that vevor chopper is a display model. it is not designed to be used.

Gabrielle de Bourg says:

Scandinavians seeing the cheese slicer, wondering if anyone has ever heard of a “osthyvel”, a cheese slicer that’s abundant in all of the Nordic countries (and works great).

Pwimaster - Joe says:

I could be sober watching this and have an amazing time. I could also have a few drinks and watch these videos and still have an amazing tome watching them. Love the guy who does the testing!

Mandy Schaan says:

I think doing the slippery left handed test for both the product and the conventional way of doing it would be able to better show how the gadget provides improvement to show how the gadget improves life for disabled people.

Thea Shire says:

I have received 2 different brands of the “industrial choppers” as gifts and one of them did not work at all and the other is FANTASTIC! One of the differences was there are serrated blades and also there is much more leverage for the one I kept

Thea Shire says:

For the lettuce cutter, I think it would be cool to have a “lid” that goes over the top that can also be a salad bowl

GeeklingNo1 says:

5:46 That seems like an awfully messy way to juice a tomato
