Product: Good Cook Touch Chopper

When it comes to kitchen chores, one of my least favorite things to do is prep all of the ingredients before I start cooking. There’s something about pulling everything out of the fridge and pantry, washing it, prepping it, cutting it into the proper sizes, and otherwise attempting to ready all the ingredients that feels so exhausting. Maybe I’m not alone. A recent study (conducted in August 2011, through Living Social by Mandala Research) showed that, on average, American’s eat out 5 times per week. Even in the middle of an economic crisis, we’d rather spend our pennies than take time to cook!

To turn the tides of our dismal (and frankly unhealthy eating habits), isn’t it time we started cooking at home more? Of course it is! And cooking at home doesn’t have to be hard, even when it means staring down a cabinet full of ingredients that have to be chopped, prepped, and readied before being tossed into some seriously good recipes.

Have no fear! Good Cook is here! So many of the Good Cook kitchen products are made to do just that. They turn the task of cooking into a quick, simple step that is easily accomplished with affordable tools, making it faster and easier than ever before to go homemade in minutes!

My favorite, can’t-live-without-it kitchen tool from Good Cook is the Touch Chopper. This single tool makes cutting, chopping, and dicing fruits and veggies an absolute cinch. Check out this recipe for Chinese Chop Salad, which I literally made in minutes with the help of my Touch Chopper. It makes preparing healthy foods easier than ever, and is easy to clean, and super easy to store!

If you’re looking for a single product that will help you turn this year into a year of healthier cooking, a year of quicker cooking, and a year of saving cash because you’re cooking, be sure to nab yourself a Good Cook Touch chopper! I have a feeling you’re just one recipe away from feeling like it’s a kitchen product you can’t live without!
