NutriChopper Review

The Name – “NutriChopper – The name is a combination of “Nutri” which stands for NUTRITION and “Chopper” which it is. It has become fashionable to use the word “Nutri” in the as seen on tv arena. “NutriSlicer”, “Nutri-Bullet”, “Nutri-Ninja”, “Nutri-Master”, “Nutri-Pot” etc are some of the famous as seen on products (mostly kitchen blenders and chopper) with the suffix “Nutri”. So having the name Nutri in the product makes a connection with these popular brands. It is a marketing ploy.



NutriChopper is Flimsy – The NutriChopper looks very promising in the video. But there is a catch. The NutriChopper is made from flimsy plastic and has thin blades that don’t have the power to slice through hard veggies and fruits. Even for slicing soft fruits and veggies you have to apply tremendous pressure on the NutriChopper handle. The chances of the NutriChopper breaking are quite high than perfect slices.


NutriChopper is Small in Size – Also the NutriChopper is smaller in size and most of the veggies and fruits just do not fit in the contraption. To put an onion into it you first have to cut the onion in two pieces and then put the individual onion pieces on the NutriChopper. here too you have to squeeze the NutriChopper with all your hand muscles to make the onion pass through the dicer. The NutriChopper containers are also small and have no practical use. But make good toys.


The Company behind NutriChopperE. Mishan & Sons, Inc a.k.a EMSON is the company behind the NutriChopper. EMSON is the official distributor of some of the most popular as seen on tv products like – TacLight, Gotham Steel, Better Brella etc. Check EMSON’s ratings here – and Glassdoor.


Our Verdict on NutriChopper

The small size of the NutriChopper and the flimsy quality of the material used defeat all the purposes it is meant to serve. Customer who have used it complain in their reviews that it takes more time cut with the NutriChopper than with the good old knife.


The other drawback of the NutriChopper is that the blades cannot be removed for sharpening. The blades are really not sharp and with continuous use they are going to become blunt. So once they are blunt (in a couple of months) your slicing, dicing, chopping and mincing is going to get messy and mushy.


The NutriChopper is not at all robust, it is not at all meant for “heavy” use. Had this NutriChopper been robust with all-metal construction and a bit bigger in size, than it would have been useful.


The NutriChopper is first of its kind handheld slicer it resembles more like a citrus squeezer. But the NutriChopper design is flawed. You cannot expect to slice and chop veggies by holding them in your hand like a citrus squeezer. It is very inconvenient and uncomfortable to hold the NutriChopper in your hand over a pan and press it, its not that easy. Vegetables and fruits are hard and “chunky”, that is why any vegetable slicer/chopper has to be placed on the surface so you can apply adequate fore on it with both your hands. All the predecessors of the NutriChopper in the as seen on tv segment are meant to be kept on the surface, like the Vidalia and Salsa Master and are bigger in size.



We certainly do not recommend the NutriChopper because it is a bad idea and just does not work. Don’t get lured into trying out this odd “Chopper” it is based on a flawed design. If this kind of “citrus squeezer” style chopper design had worked, then established kitchen product brands would have already exploited this idea long back. We would recommend any of the tried and tested Vidalia model available at There is also a new vertical slicer/spiralizer – Super Julietti, that you may want to try.

    I ordered one on April 1, 2020 (Not an April Fool’s joke) As of May 4th I haven’t received it. I got on their website and tried to contact Customer Service. Obviously there isn’t one because I gave up after waiting 20 minutes. There was another site that was supposed to help me track it down. Said it was out of stock. I’m going to contact my credit card company and challenge the charge.

    Do not waste your money.!!!! Tomatoes can not be sliced it turn to mush when you press the tomato, onions were hard to press through.Gave up not worth the trouble trying.

    • Thank you for your comments. I should have read the comments section before ordering two on ☹ 03/27/2002. I will not accept them from the postmaster and return them to sender. Thanks again for saving me $$$$$.


  9. Very useful information! I am very wary of “As Seen On TV” merchandise, and like to research the items further before purchasing…had hoped this would make great Christmas gifts, will definitely search for alternative ideas.

    I will stick with my Vidalia wizard. On my 2nd one in 13 years. I love it, my hands aren’t strong due to degerative joint disease and with the Vidalia wizard I can use my palm or forearm. If you buy one be sure to hang on to the little cleaning comb, it’s essential.

    I was hoping to hear good news on this item. I hate using knives. It is long and tedious to cut dozens of carrots and other veggies nice and thin with a knife. I prepare fewer veggies because of the hassle. Hoping someone comes up with a great alternative to the pain in the rear of knife slicing.

  12. Great review
    Thanks for saving me the time and trouble of having to struggle with a gadget that is inferior and trying to return it. I hate it when holidays come and tv commercials with every gadget are on tv consistently. Very annoying.

  13. I’m impressed with the English lesson – spelling and grammar are indicative of a rather unprofessional presentation – however in keeping with the intended objective, I’m more impressed with the substance of the review. As I’m watching this ad on TV, I’m imagining the effort I’d have to exert in order to accomplish the simple task of cutting a fruit or a vegetable. Kudos to the author of the review for bringing an honest assessment to our attention. My skepticism was spot on.

    Only wish I had read these first. The negative comments were mild compared to the actual mess that this thing makes. Can’t cut anything, won’t pop back open, needs two hands to even partly cut the softest items. Hard to believe its still on sale. Back into the box to be reurned to Bed Bath and Beyond.

  15. thanks for the review I will save $20.

  16. I don’t like companies that advertise 8 to 12 containers yet in small print it says you get only one. False advertisement? Thanks for this review i’ll get one with its own power.

  17. Well that’s $20 I can spend somewhere else. Thanks!!

  18. I have to agree with Christy above. Thanks for saving my $20!

  19. I love reviews. I was just about to buy one of these things because I love kitchen gadgets. I’m glad I didn’t waste my money. Thank you
