How to Buy a Chinese Chopper

Like the majority of the population, I often wonder which is the best Chinese chopper to buy since the variety available on Amazon is enough to confuse the most stable of minds regardless of the 7% low oil price tax. Not having a Chinese chopper or Vetsin in my kitchen for a number of years I decided ask the experts,  namely the cooks at many of the almost countless Chinese restaurants in the country springing up like CEPEP gangs.  What I didn’t realize was how not passionate these cooks are about what they chop things with. “Is just ah wok” one of them told me. One of the cooks I spoke to asked not to be identified and said” I just buys them on Charlotte Street. Sometimes I buys half a dozen wontime.” When I pressed him for a brand he looked confused and said Levi. He then showed me one of his choppers and the device had no brand name but only the words “made in China, where else” stamped on one side.  The chopper looked dull and confused, much like the cooks who used them. Several other Chinese cooks were not as helpful and thought I just wanted to get them deported. I told them in this country the furthest they will get deported to is Tunapuna.

I eventually gave up on the “local input” and realized that the reviews on Amazon will be more helpful. Naturally, I went with a cheap one with scores of good reviews. I will soon be the proud owner of a multipurpose chopper wastefully bought with scarce US dollars the Minister would prefer go to the party financiers.
