I know that chopping vegetables is something no cook can avoid, no matter if you are cooking at home for just one person or for the whole family and relatives or you are a professional chef in a restaurant (although they might have a helping hand or two or more).
And chopping vegetables, especially onions with their unpleasant ability to create tears and potatoes (or pumpkin) that are really hard and solid to cut, is not an easy and enjoyable activity.
Chopping vegetables can be not only difficult to do, but it usually takes a lot of time and precision, even for experienced cooks. That is why I am presenting today one very useful gadget that might be of use not only during the holidays, but in our everyday life as cooking is an inevitable part of our lives and because vegetables are so delicious and good for our health we should include them in our menu.
See my review below of the onion holder that can make your life in the kitchen easier and make the food preparation go smoothly and pleasantly.

ONION HOLDER PRODUCT DESCRIPTION – PROs & CONs
Onion holder is a gadget that makes my life really easy. I use it mainly to chop onions, potatoes, cabbage or other hard and difficult to cut vegetables or fruit when I like the cuts to be equal so that to ensure them to be cooked simultaneously.
Of course, you can use it and for preparing and cutting smaller vegetables and/or softer fruit, if you want as well. I definitely use it when I am in a hurry and don’t want to use too much time and nerves to cut vegetables.
You can use it to help you prepare delicious breakfasts, lunches or dinners. You’ll find out that this gadget could be useful in your everyday preparation of food, but especially during the holidays or festive cooking when we cook much more and we want the dishes to be not only extra yummy, but be extremely beautiful as well.

ENJOY THE MEALS YOU LIKE, BUT AVOIDED PREPARING BECAUSE OF ALL THE HARD WORK OF CHOPPING THE VEGETABLES
I like cooking and I enjoy preparing meals for my family. But I don’t like a lot of repetitive work like chopping a large amount of vegetables. I like, if possible, things to be done as easily and as quickly as possible so that to allow me to get the results I want and I hope for.
I know that onion holder is not something we can’t live without. No, we can definitely manage and without it in our lives. But just think how much more happy you might feel if you don’t need to struggle when you are preparing the food your family enjoys.
Because I cook every day, I like to have some help if possible. And the onion holder does exactly that – helps me chop the vegetables I am going to use for the dish in a beautifully cut pieces, almost equal in size (depending where I cut). I use this gadget to prepare stews, bakes, soups, salads, other. I use it to cut the fruit for my family’s breakfasts and/or desserts as well.
I want to mention one very useful side of the onion holder. When I started weaning my first child and introduced solid foods, I used the blender to prepare the meals. Gradually and some time later, my son started eating the food we eat, but still needed the vegetables or fruit to be cut in much smaller pieces so that to avoid choking. The onion holder helps me with that. I cut the vegetables in suitable in size pieces without much effort and I am thankful for that help.
I know that all of you have a favourite recipe that you want to use the onion holder for. Try the recipe I prepare with the onion holder – Moussaka with courgettes. Click here to see it.
Use your imagination and prepare the dishes you and your loved ones would love to eat.

My Verdict: I LIKE WHEN I MAKE MY LIFE IN THE KITCHEN EASIER AND WHEN I CAN PREPARE A MEAL FASTER
I try preparing my family all the dishes they like, but sometimes, I admit, I have been avoiding making a particular dish (usually a stew), because preparing it meant that I need to stay in one place chopping a big amount of vegetables. That is really boring. I don’t have the patience to chop all the vegetables equal and I don’t have the time to do it when my kids are home.
That is why I am happy I found this useful gadget – Onion Holder. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes cooking, you would without a doubt need it even the first time you try preparing something.
The onion holder doesn’t take up any space in my kitchen drawer and it is very easy to clean. Not only that, but I am using it every day when cooking. I hope you feel relaxed as well when preparing the food for the people you love.
I hope you enjoyed my review and if you have used this gadget before, have some suggestions or recommendation about the onion holder, leave a comment below.
Have a beautiful day!
