This rocking chopper and mincer quickly transforms ingredients with a speed and efficiency that's unmatched by knives for food preparation. This versatile addition to cutlery and chef knives helps prepare quick healthy meals, from stir fry to casseroles, salads to soups and stews, paleo, gluten free, raw and vegetarian recipes. Twin blades, measuring 5.5-inches each, allows you to make quick work of chopping and mincing smaller foods. This multipurpose vegetable chopper is great for making vegetable soup, stock, and pasta primavera, mincing and chopping garlic, herbs, smaller fruits and vegetables, nuts, and more. Its ergonomic design is comfortable and easy to use. Simply place items to be chopped, cut or minced onto a cutting board to protect countertops. Rock the blade side-to-side to chop tender items or use a firm up-and-down motion to chop denser items. Continue until desired texture is achieved. Made in Italy from stainless steel with beechwood handles, Fante's Aunt Marisa's Double Mezzaluna Rocking Chopper and Mincer is sturdy, durable and easy to clean. Hand wash in warm, soapy water. Occasionally apply a light coating of mineral oil to maintain the wood.
