A while back, I talked about a rather expensive onion chopper that I saw in Parkson. What a Lulu commented that she uses a chopper bought from Ikea that I may have missed in my previous multiple trips to Ikea.
Off I went to the Land of Giant Swedish Furniture Mall in search of this Stralande chopper. There it was, in its gleaming white plastic beauty screaming, take me home for RM30! How could anyone ignore its dulcet persuasions?
All I can say is, chopping garlic and onions isn’t a chore any more! I find that by using this, I also tend to throw in more garlic whenever I have use for them. It’s okay, I love lots and lots of garlic in my food. I also hate chopping or mincing lots and lots of garlic. Now with this Ikea chopper, I can stop hating and start loving! :D
Today I’m going to try and persuade you to get your own Ikea Stralande. How? By showing you how easy it is to use this chopper and to get lots and lots of chopped stuff in less than a minute!
First peel off the skin and ugly bits off your garlic or onions. For onions, you can’t throw the whole thing into the chopper. You have to chop it to smaller bits. If you don’t understand why, you soon will.
Put in your cloves of garlic, screw the top of the lid back on then press press press to chop!
A few presses will do. If you want really finely minced stuff, press it down a few more times. Then you will get chopped garlic, voila!
Best RM30 I ever spent. This is not an Ikea advertorial. I wish it was :(
