Hopping Chopping Block

strutting board for the cutting bored
  [vote for,

Gone are the days of menial whacking and hacking meat and vegetables, of hashing and hewing fruit, nuts and bread crumbs. The hovering chopper is here to take the work out of shearing, sundering and dissevering. With one hand on the food and the other or both holding the knife steady, the traversing, bouncing board does the rest.

To use, press down on the suction cup lever anchoring the block to the counter or table. Use voice commands to initiate slice thickness, height, direction, speed and “slice” or “dice”, or just say “default”, an adjustable setting which could mean Œ” slices, from 2” above the board, moving the board left to right, 2 slices per second and the “slice” setting. “Dice” means the board will return after one traverse, rotate 90 degrees and start a second pass through.

When you’re prepared with the knife, the command “Hopping Chopping Block start!” in a loud, clear voice will cause the amazing appliance to auto-cleave, cube and mince to your heart’s content.
