My most favorite new gadets i purchased last year was the Ultimate Chopper and the Food Saver. Love 'em both and don't take them off of my counter. You can put anything in the ultimate chopper. And I save tons on food with the food saver. I can stock up at Sams or Costco and even place all my left overs in the freezer. Great for sealing potato chip bags too, so nothing goes stale.
If ya don't stand behind our Troops, feel free to stand in front of them
