Why Invest in a Nut Chopper at All?
In addition to chopping things with a knife, which we already mentioned is super annoying for nuts, the other alternative is getting a regular sized food processor. The problem with this is that they are normally pretty large. This means you have to take it out, plug it in, put on the blade, etc. A smaller nut chopper is going to be less versatile, but way more convenient compare to the alternatives. Given that they are relatively inexpensive and easy to store, there isn’t much downside to picking one up.

Best Nut Choppers Reviewed & Analyzed
The Ninja Express Chop was our first choice because it has a perfect balance of all the ideal attributes. It’s an ideal size for large and small jobs and a good size for storage as well. The way it works is pretty simple:
It has two main components: a base and atop. The top has a button (as you can see in the picture) through which the chop is initiated. The top also contains the motor (and also the plug) which attaches to the blades in the base. Simply add the blades in, add the food, hook up the top and you’re ready to chop!
The one downside which we noted below is that this is an electric chopper. If you need something that you don’t have to plug in – we’ve got some manual choices below.
