I took a punt on this, and am very glad I did. It chops onions in seconds - exactly what it promises to do. Note that to dice an onion, you need to cut the onion lengthwise initially.

Best kitchen gadget I own
By Mr. Robert Shooter on 7 November 2009

The Alligator Onion chopper does exactly what it says on the tin, and then some. Here's how it works. Cut the onion in half, place it on the green grid, gently lever the bladed grid into place, and apply pressure. Job done. The perfectly chopped onion appears in the container and you can carry on chopping until it's full.

I've read some of the negative reviews. To be fair (1) I imagine that with a whole onion, the gadget struggles somewhat, and (2) there is a certain knack to closing the mouth of the alligator (ie applying pressure). It's certainly not for those with arthritis, for example. But once you've worked out the best way to exert a little force (and nothing excessive required), you're in business.

A fantastic gadget that actually does what it claims to. I used my first one so much I actually managed to break it and was lost until I got another. Brilliant for onions, but I also use it on an almost daily basis for carrots, potatoes, apples and anything else that needs dicing. Can do julienne strips but they turn out very thin so be warned. Also be warned not to try and cut too much at a time (particularly carrots) as it then becomes very hard to push down the cutter and you run the risk of damaging it (like this idiot did). Apart from that, I can't rate this simple gadget too highly. Oh, and it all goes in the dishwasher too - what more could you want?

I bought the original Alligator when it first came out back in 2004 and could not for the life of me get it to work. It drove me bananas & I eventually threw it out. Then I saw one being demonstrated in action, eureka! I had been operating it all wrong by pushing steadily down to try and close the jaws and it simply locked half way leaving me to try and prise all the pieces out, but now I saw how to use it properly.

The trick is to hit the end with a karate chop action, two or three blows depending on the hardness or softness of the the food you are trying to chop. The new improved design, which includes the perspex catching box which is brilliant for gathering several chops of pieces before you need to empty it, and also the little pull out cleaner, which automatically cleans between all the tiny cubes as you remove it after use, are certainly improvements on the original design, which was still in the fledging stage when I originally purchased.

I can quite see why people would write bad reviews of this item, but try the method I mention and it is a great item for onions, hard boiled eggs (for egg mayo) apples and so forth. I also have the mini one for garlic, chili and ginger. Next up for my purchase wish list is the deluxe stainless steel version. By the way I'm a cookery demonstrator & Home Economist, and my audiences are always impressed, intrigued & want one when I use my Alligators.

I don't know why this got all the bad reviews. I absolutely adore my Alligator and it has made prep work much faster. I use it to chop any vegetable that can be chopped, it even goes right through carrots. It's simple and safe enough that my 5 year old can cut veggies while I do other things. The thing is it works best if things are laid a certain way, if they aren't it has a hard time shutting down. Best thing is to not try and force it because it can snap, which mine did, but it's still kicking regardless. If you do alot of cooking and need to save time, definitely invest in this little gadget, I love it. My only gripe is that it only cuts in one size.

Best kitchen gadget I own!
By MPH on 23 December 2009

I use this product 4-5 times per week for the last 18 months and still no problems. This is basically a great Swedish gadget to dice onions in seconds which has saved me hours!

I really don't know whats with the bad reviews. From what I can see it is people not knowing how to use the product properly. You need to peel the onion, cut off the ends, cut the onion vertically, then place flat side down in the alligator. You then need to close the top until you hit the onion, then swiftly and firmly press down to dice the onion (shouldn't be a problem unless you've got arthritis). If you are using very large onions you might need to cut them into quarters.

The product also washes fine in the dishwasher and includes plate/filter which you lift off after using to remove any onion peices etc. I don't know why a previous review stated it was hard to clean as it a breeze.

If you're the sort of person who will just rip it out the box, ignore the instructions and try and use it how you see fit, don't bother buying it, you will just get frustrated as some of the other reviewers. If you actually read the instructions and learn to use it properly, you will wish you had bought one years ago!

Really don't understand what some people are complaining about I found this little gem to be one of the most used items in my kitchen.
So what it does-cuts onions(so what if you have to cut an onion in half, it's a lot better than spending ages trying to get it into little pieces)tomatoes,cucumber, peppers, mushrooms, all chopped with ease. I even used to to cut feta cheese into little pieces for a greek salad.
It may not be great for hard veg like carrot potato parsnip etc haven't tried it yet(still might be fine if you slice them into small pieces)
Anyway I love it and anyone i've shown it too loves it as well
Nearly didn't buy it cause of a few 1 star reviews-glad I ignored them
Oh and it's really easy to clean too-that little plastic bit at the bottom that just lifts up is pure genius

It's a knack
By Mrs. Theresa Jackson on 20 February 2008

This is a great gadget, producing perfectly cubed onions with ease. The onion does have to be peeled and chopped in half and placed cut side down, then you simply bang the top down, it wont slide through the onion so some force is required, but a short sharp bang works best and the cubed onion is caught in the container on the top. It's also great for potatoes, carrots, cucumber, peppers etc etc. Not so great with tomatoes(too soft), parnsips(the woody centre gets caught)and swedes(too hard). Just a note that everything needs to be chopped to fit on the grid on the bottom so everything goes through the knives as they come down. Once you've got the knack it's a real time saving gadget.

I too am glad I ignored the poor reviews and bought one. I make chutneys and jams and have found it very useful for chopping onions, cooked beetroot, apples, pears. I haven't really used it for much else yet. Read Katy Thompson and MPH's reviews as they say how to use it. There is definitely a knack - I use Katy's method and give it two or three blows with the side of my clenched fist whilst my other hand is holding down the collector lid. Do not use overly hard blows as the side of your hand will hurt :-)). Do persevere until you've mastered the technique. I cut very large onions into quarters and also remove the first inner skin if it is wrinkly as that will tend to stick in the cutter. I even cut smaller onions in half as I don't think trying to chop whole onions, albeit small ones, would work. Is there an onion skin peeler as this is the worst part of the process!! The only down-side is that it chops 'one size, one shape' only. It would be nice if they bought out a version with interchangeable heads for different sizes and shapes.

I can't believe the bad reviews for this excellent gadget. I use it every day, mainly for making salads. The trick is to position it upside down (mesh side down) over a sturdy plastic bowl, place sliced vegetables (or onion halves) straight on the mesh, then bring the other half down over the vegetables with a short sharp 'Karate' chop.
It works well for tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, onions, pitted olives, celery... etc. Carrots are a bit too hard, but you can do them as well if you slice them reasonably thinly. You'll get a bowlful of lovely healthy salad in no time at all! Really useful!

I have a small food business and use a lot of diced onions on a daily / weekly basis. This speeds up the process ten fold and the dice is a great size and always even. There is a knack to it.

this is a gadget that you look at and think "no, waste of time" - then you use it, and think "why did I leave it sitting in the box for so long". Love, love, love this. Have used to chop onions, peppers, mushrooms, apples - slight knack to it at first but you soon get the hang of it. Really speeds up preparation - a whole onion can be diced perfectly in a matter of seconds. Dead easy to clean also. Even my husband is a convert.

I bought this principally for the fine chopping of onions. It works perfectly! As other reviewers have stated, make sure the onion is cut in half first and then it will cope with even (half) large onions. However, the key to effective use, and I cannot emphasise this enough, is VERY firm, positive, downwards force right to the bottom of the stroke. DON'T BE WORRIED ABOUT USING SO MUCH FORCE YOU BREAK IT! I am 6' 3" and strong: I place both hands, one on top of each other, onto the Alligator and then, with all my weight, push down in one very firm fast stroke. The result is perfect! You need to be brave the first couple of times you try it! If you falter or ease back on the pressure the Alligator will get stuck mid-onion and there is no way to restart - you need to clean it out and start all over again. A great device!

My Alligator Chopper arrived today and I love it! It usually takes me about approx 30-40 mins to prepare salad for our meals, ie cucumber, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, and red peppers and today, it took about say 10 mins which was a godsend and made preparing salads much more enjoyable cos we're always so rushed for time in preparing meals.

I sliced the tomatoes in half before putting them in the Alligator Chopper as I like our tomatoes squared, same with onions, ie I sliced them once sideways after cutting it in half, and with the cucumber, I sliced them first sideways and then put them through the Alligator to get nice even squares, and same with the lettuce, all came out so well and I was very impressed. If you want crudities, there's no need to slice them sideways as the veg would come out lengthwise, eg cucumber. Have't tried with carrots as we're not really into carrots at the moment. We prefer the softer veg.

Once the vegetables are on the chopper board, I push down hard with my hand to get a nice fast sharp chop motion, otherwise if it's done slowly and gently, the vegetables won't cut properly.

I'm going to enjoy making salads more often now rather than putting it off cos it takes so much time to do! Am very pleased!

Washing the product was a doddle too and very easy. I like that everything you need is compacted into as few bits as possible to do a full and complete job unlike mandolines. I've bought many mandolines of all sorts over the years trying to find the right machine to help us make salad making somewhat easier and I've sliced my fingers too many times on the mandolines which for me, has too many parts, cumbersome and feels dangerous cos of the really sharp blades; and doesn't produce the result that we want salad wise.

The Eddingtons Alligator Chopper does all we want, in chopping all our veg into square pieces, perfect for mixing into pasta and wraps! No more excuses now to eat junk food when we can quickly make some salad with pasta and/or wraps!

It's All In The Knack of Using

Bought one of these several years ago after seeing it being used on TV - rapidly consigned it to the back of the cupboard as couldn't get it to work. Recently retrieved it and thought would look on Amazon to see what other people had written about it. Found out from reading other reviews that the best way to use it is not to try to press down on it but rather to apply a karate blow. Tried it again using this technique - lower top to rest on top of veg and apply swift karate type sidewards blow. This worked a treat, almost got right through the veg and one more swift blow worked a treat. Do remember to put the plastic cover on though as without it the veg flew halfway across the kitchen! I used it successfully on carrots and onions. The onions were small so probably would have to cut larger ones in half first. I was amazed at the difference from when I first tried it using the pressing method. It's like a different machine and I will certainly be using it a lot in future. I would certainly advise trying it this way before giving up with it.

Alligator Chopper
By Carnallochy on 8 January 2012

I make soup with lots of vegetables from time to time and find dicing them all finely a chore. I don't like the product of my food processors nor the washing up afterwards. I also know a couple of people with weakness of hand or wrist, so I chose this device both to use myself and to try out on their behalf.
The chopper is excellent for the softer, more succulent vegetables. Onions it does well, although I find that laying them on the base with the top and bottom of the onion on the long axis of the base works better than crosswise, as shown in the literature. Peppers, leeks and mushrooms work well, as do potatoes. I find it easiest with potatoes to start with ¼" or 6mm slices. You can do carrots in a similar way providing you do small pieces at a time (as with leeks, if they are large). I am not sure that it is quicker than dicing the hard way with carrots, though. The golden rule is not to try to do too big a piece of anything at a time or it won't cut through and you'll spend longer freeing it from the grid than it would have taken to chop by hand!
It can take considerable force to use so I will not be getting one for my less able friends. Provided you load it sensibly this is a very good product and it won't be a dust gatherer in my kitchen. It could not be easier to take apart and cleaning is a breeze. I don't put it in the dishwasher, which can erode sharp edges, I find.

I am very pleased and impressed, albeit a bit skeptical at first, about buying this chopper as I wanted it for slicing onions for my curry making. As I make a stock curry to provide several weeks I needed something 'man enough' for the job. There are some available that are certainly not up to the job and takes as much effort as doing it by hand.

This is not the case with the Alligator, and is a dream to use. Even my wife with her arthritic hands can use it after I showed the way, which is simplicity in itself.

I can fully recommend this chopper but make sure you get the one with the plastic housing that collects the chopped items. The Alligator comes with this 'collector' so there's no problems, and at the cost, it's not worth looking for a second hand one.

I already have one of these that i bought about 2 years ago. The reason i have now bought another one is that if the one i have got breaks,and i imagine it eventually will as it is plastic!,i would be lost without it! Quite simply it makes the chore of dicing go away and cuts preperation time to virtually nothing! I have also found that when i have to use diced onions in a recipe that not only does it do the job quickly but i am not crying my eyes out at the end of it! This is an invaluable tool to someone that loves to cook and have found that when a recipe calls for something to be diced,onions,carrots,celery whatever,it does not fill me with dread at having to spend forever having to do the task but i gleefully get my dicer down and do the job in minutes!! Would recommend a thousand times over!

A really good gadget, takes a little getting use to as you have to press down really hard and at first you are a bit nervous but it is fine, chops really well and easy to clean.

Great little gadget.

Being more into salads these days, and I love gadgets so this is perfect.
Well made & robust for finely chopping carrots, courgettes, cucumber etc.

Quality product!
