Don't Buy It, Until We Try It: Pop Chef

Posted: Updated:

           Cutting up fruits and vegetables to make salads and trays can take a lot of time and effort.  Well, there may be an easy way to make professional looking arrangements at home without hiring out.

            In this week's "Don't Buy It, Until We Try It," I tried out Pop Chef.

            "[It has] a lot of different shapes that we can use.  A little sun, a little flower, a star, and that's just a circle.  We've got a butterfly here.  And, we've got a heart theme," said Mary Helen Hasby, Cookies For You Owner.

            We sliced up some watermelon and cantaloupe and pushed it aside while we got the Pop Chef ready for action.

            Hasby said,"[It] assembles really easily."

            Just hold the orange air bulb and cap, insert the stem into the cap, and twist the stem clockwise.

            "It kind of locks in there, so we're going to push down with that and just pop that right back out," explains Hasby.

            Then, we changed the cutter for a different shape.

            "Let's see if I can, there we go," said Hasby.  "You must take this part off to unscrew that and maybe it's just because my hands are wet, but I kind of like that feature actually."

            We once again repeated the same steps.

            Hasby said, "And, that just pops right out.  I just think that's cool."

            But, after trying out the Pop Chef with several different cutters, we did notice a slight problem.

            "Oh, this is cracked already.  Yeah, I don't know if I cracked it or if it came that way," said Hasby.

            Once we were done cutting out the different shapes, it was time to create those "mouth watering master pieces." 

            Hasby said, "There's not much waste afterwards, you know, your piece of watermelon or whatever, you could just cut it up into a fruit salad and so, I think it's a win win for everyone."

             It's very easy to use.  The only work you have to do is cutting up the fruit.  I do want to point out the Pop Chef is cracked, but it didn't seem to affect it in any way. 

            So, this week's "Don't Buy It, Until We Try It," earns a thumbs up.

            If there are any "As Seen on TV" products you would like me to try out, email me at afox@kmot.com or leave me a message on the KMOT Facebook page.
