Our Chop Magic Review

Because Chop Magic is not available in stores, we ordered it online and it took nearly 6 weeks to arrive.

Our initial impression merely from the advertising is that it looked to be made of inexpensive plastic, and we were right. The plastic is not of high quality, and the blades – while seemingly sharp upon first inspection – feel flimsy and cheaply made. Size-wise, it is about what we expected.

We found that Chop Magic can perform some easier chopping tasks effectively, but it isn’t always the cinch that the advertising shows. A certain amount of force must be used to complete the cutting process, and chopping some items requires a significant amount of force. Potatoes, in particular, were almost impossible to chop with this product.

Ordering
The first negative item we noted was in ordering the product via the website. There is no subtotal given after you fill in your credit card details, and it isn’t even clear if you’re ordering just one Chop Magic, or if they automatically setting you up with the buy one, get one for extra shipping.

Some of our commenters below felt they were billed even more than they expected, likely due to the confusing ordering process.

If you want to order a Chop Magic online, be prepared to be charged $35.85 for two, as there is no way to just order one. The order page only lets you select in groups of buy one/get one, as they state:

“How many buy one, get one free Chop Magic™ chopper sets would you like to order?”

There is no option to simply order one Chop Magic.

There is no option to simply order one Chop Magic.

Some consumers may find this marketing tactic to be deceptive, as they advertise Chop Magic for $19.95, but provide no way to order just one.

    I know what you mean about waiting for it to arrive. Mine took forever. After finally waiting all that time, it works – somewhat. Your observation about the plastic is correct. It’s cheap and even the blades seem cheaply made. Yes it does cut, but not as easily as the commercial makes it look. I chopped potatoes with chop magic and I thought it was going to break. I had to push pretty hard. Not really a high quality product and not worth the money for the extra shipping they make you pay.

  • lilly

    I just order one and I had one other kind of chopper and was like it is explained above, I am hoppin that this ChopMagic is not like this otherwise it will be very dissopointing.

  • steve rubin

    As mentioned.this was the WORST chopper for onions I have ever come accross. With the basic chop magic came a chopper which had to be
    POUNDED on to get the onion to chop..Had to slice the onions so thin in order to chop..might as well continued with my chopping knife. Gave both choppers to a charity..Hope they could use.

  • Shauna Christian

    I ordered the chop magic in August. It arrived on October 22. That’s not my problem. It should have cost me a total of $35.85 for everything. I was billed $81.24 cad on my Master card plus I had to pay $20.55 COD. That’s over $100 for this chop magic. I would like to return it because you said there is money back guaranteed if not satisfied. We did not even open the boxes. Please send me a return sticker via regular mail or e-mail. Thank you!

  • Robin

    Have you been able to return your Chop Magic? I can not get a legal street address from their own customer service telephone number. This is border line fraud. I would love to know an address to return this product.

    • Aileen

      This is fraud!!!!! Total ripoff!!!

  • Aileen

    PIECE OF JUNK!!!!! Do not buy this product. I thought it would be like the commercial and broke after the first use. I later attempted to use it again and this time sliced my tomatoes and the “free” chopmagic broke again.I then shipped it back to the seller and was charged $14.50. This is a total ripoff BEWARE.

  • Agnes

    As a previous customer wrote, I am looking to get the slicing blade. How do I get it?

    The commercial clearly shows them using it, so it should have been included. And there was no indication in the order process that extra blades were available at any time. Only that you could upgrade the quality of the blades received.

  • roseanne muraya

    I ordered this “chop magic” and took forever to arrive. First time use was a disaster! I hate to say that no one should spend money ordering or buying this product. The blades are very cheap,you have to use lots of energy pressing the potato or whatever you’re chopping,waste of time,wastes alot of your vegetables intended for chopping as they get stuck on those blunt blades. WASTE OF MONEY INDEED! I trashed everything in minutes! JUST GET OFF THE MARKET! STOP BRAIN-WASHING PEOPLE. WON’T RECOMMEND IT TO NO ONE.

  • B. Smith

    I ordered the slicing blade and DIDN’T RECEIVE IT! After they made me listen to no less than THIRTY MINUTES of ads for OTHER ITEMS not related to the Chop Magic, they didn’t even send the ONE THING I DID say yes to! I was afraid to hang up on their babbling for fear my order wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t “hang in” until the end. SO FRUSTRATED! If you find out about the blade,I’d love to know! B. Smith

  • Kathleen B

    AVOID AT ALL COST.
    The ad says that you should be able to use the ChopMagic for slicing but the slicing blade is not even included in the package!

    I was furious when I realized they charged me twice the shipping for 2 items – which they don’t let you confirm before charging your CC.

    I paid nearly $50 for two Chop Magics that can’t slice, which is the reason why I ordered the item in the first place.

    Rip off and fraud.

  • Scott

    Took along time to receive unit. Cut some potatos and cracked the plastic on right side. Potato was actually small reds. Wont bother trying to return it. I would not recommend this product. Maybe it would work for making toasted bread crumbs.

  • Robert Hiller

    I ordered one (expecting two as there is no way to get just one). I got 4!!! I was supposed to confirm my order with a human, but that never happened so I did think I wouldn’t get any. I challenged the charge with my credit card and am returning all four, unopened and unused. I hope chopmagic will have to deal with it.

  • Roberta

    This is total junk and a ripoff. It doesn’t work and that’s the bottom line.

  • john

    A complete fraud! a piece of junk!

  • Addy

    When will I receive my unit it been two weeks since I ordered it can someone tell why?

  • Daisy

    I agree it’s a piece of junk, everything you see in the commercial is not true.. It looks to delicate when i tried to push it to chop onions it wouldn’t even chop it… when i tried to push down on it it felt like it was going to break and nor the onions or peppers were chopping…. it’s so disappointing I paid $33.00 for a plastic container for storing…

  • Dennis Rathke

    Did anyone else receive more than one pusher plate? On the commercial and in the paper directions, a second pusher plate with longer “fingers” is clearly shown. Mine came with the short pusher plate only and thought maybe this is why I had such a horrible first experience with it. The quality of the cuts, the force needed to use the chopper, and unusually long delivery wait has made me a very dissatisfied customer.

  • Joe Mark

    It’s a piece of junk. A blade comes off on the first attempt.
    Customer service is terrible. I Can’t get a replacement, life time guarantee is a fraud.

  • Terry Hyde

    I purchased this item direct from Merchandise Direct 227 Humberline Drive Toronto Canada and unfortunately I didn’t do the research as I normally do when buying online and am kicking myself for not doing so. I paid $29.95 plus tax and the shipping for the two of them was $15.90 because the way they have this scam set up, you can’t just buy one. I received my order on Jan.09 2014 and used it the day. I’m a big guy and by just pressing down on the slicer top I couldn’t get it to chop carrots that were cut into smaller pieces, onion sliced about 1″ thick and celery. I had to physically had to hammer on the top before it chopped. It is virtually impossible for my wife to use it because of the physical exertion that has to be applied to have this chopper chop. According to ALL the other reviews I read this item description, easy use etc is deceptive and their marketing is borderline if not down right fraudulent. I will be contacting our BBB and lodging a complaint. Am i sending it back? No, and that is what this company banks on. Postage to return it is $17.31 CDN because they will not refund postage. My Math tells me that my total refund from $48.15 would be $14.93….WARNING..DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF CRAP!!

  • Darlene

    I think I am going to really like my chopper. My only fault as of now is that when I ordered it, I wasn’t told that I would have to order a separate blade for slicing. Totally upset with that. So now I am waiting to order the extra blade that I can’t seem to find on their website.

  • Chun

    It does NOT WORK WELL!! I cut my finger on the blade pretty bad, trying to make it work. I am sooooooooooo disappointed!!! Should have reviewed the product reviews, before I purchased. I see now why there are numerous bad comments. I feel I just got robbed literally.

  • Lillian

    I need an address to return the two chop magic’s that I did order. They don’t work and the veggies turn to mush on first time using..

  • Leslie

    I cook a lot and bought the Chop Magic thinking it would make chopping easier. It was the worse purchase I have made! The FIRST TIME I used it the entire thing fell apart and all the blades came out. There is no way to fix it. I tried the other blade on onions and it wouldn’t cut even putting a lot of pressure on it. I even tried cutting mushrooms which aren’t as firm as an onion, and it would cut, it just squished them. This is a total piece of junk and I’m trying to find a way to send it back. DON’T BUY IT!!

  • Singletary

    I just saw Chop Magic in Collections, Inc. catalog. It was $19.99 plus $7.99 for shipping. Nothing was mentioned about “buy 1 get 1 free” or having to buy two of these items.

  • Derryl Milburn

    I bought it and it was shipped to the wrong address in the wrong state. It broke the first time I used it. Save your money, it is a piece of crap!

  • haydn poore

    i ordered my chop magic in late dec. and received it, in mid feb.. i used it just 1 time and 2 of the blades broke. looks like who ever bought this was taken for a ride. the most worthless piece of crap ever on the TV. and dont try to return it. you only get a fraction of your money back

  • djm

    Junk!!!!!! Total waste of money. Advertising should be stopped

    • notasucker

      the advertising on this and all scams will stop come the day the dopes in this country realize these type of things are all scams but that will never happen because, collectively, the American people are very low on the intelligence scale — WHEN THEY OFFER YOU FREE OR DOUBLE ITEMS FOR ONLY SHIPPING AND HANDLING IT’S A SCAM AND NOW THEY ARE STARTING SOMETHING NEW AND THAT IS “ASK ABOUT FREE SHIPPING” – IF THEY OFFER FREE SHIPPING, LOOK OUT FOR THE RIP OFF AS THE HANDLING FEE GOES – one thing certain is that these thieving b-stards don’t get anything from me

  • Mr. Chipmunk

    THIS THING STINKS!!!! IT DOSNT EVEN CUT THE STUPID ONION OR A THIN MUSHROOM!! DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF JUNK!!!!! I HATE IT!!!!!!!!!!! >:( >:(

  • JJ

    Was thinking of buying Magic Chop to replace my Videlia Onion Chopper which has worked well for me for years. I’m so thankful I read these reviews first!!! If I have to replace it, I’ll choose another Videlia Onion Chopper for $20 at Bed Bath & Beyond. Thanks!

    • notasucker

      right on, my friend, right on — glad someone is smart enough to investigate these products before getting sucked in

  • JJ

    All the comments I’ve read are true, The product appears to be a great ideal for chopping in a hurry, but don’t be fooled by the demo you see on TV. My small blades fell out after the plastic frame broke & the large plastic frame broke as well. You cannot order just one chopper, two are sent and the shipping charge is doubled. I ordered mine on line, than called & complained about the shipping charge. Customer Service advised me that ONE order included 2 choppers and double shipping cost. This is a JUNK product. I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing.

  • Ebony

    I AM EXTREMELY HAPPY THAT I LOOKED UP THE REVIEWS!!! I AM SORRY THAT THEY SCAMMED SO MANY PEOPLE BUT HAPPY THAT YOU SHARED ABOUT THIS FRADULENT COMPANY. I SAVED MONEY, TIME AND PEACE OF MIND.

  • Kimberly Sierra

    I bought mine at Bed, Bath and Beyond (I had a $5 off coupon) for 14.99 but didn’t get any of the bonuses. I have only used it once to dice a potato, after hand slicing it cause I don’t have that blade, and it worked just fine. Make sure the arrows on the blades are facing up and on the same side as the pusher and the clear top. That may be the reason people are having trouble usiing it. I would like the slicing blade(s) that are used on the comercial to slice veggies.

  • alpinequeen

    I got mine at the local dollar store for $20. When I got it home, I was disappointed to discover there is no slicing blade. The TV commercial shows cucumbers and radishes being sliced but they only show two dicing blades. I’ve used the big dicing bladed for French fries and so far, the device has held up. It’s a waste of money really because I’m pretty good with a chef’s knife for chopping veggies. Caveat emptor!

  • Bally Brar

    This is not what they advertised on tv. The blade broke down and the price they charge is not worth for this cheap quality product.

    First of all it costed me $70 to get this product, when I called the customer care the lady was very rude and she hunged up on me, There was $50 gift card in the box when I called to claim that they said its not applicable in Canada.Their product Their service sucks. Before advertising their product they should learn how to create nice product.

    I will never recommend this product to anyone. I am supermad with their service,I told the lady who was on the phone that I will put a review about your company she said go ahead.

    If they have zero star are any negative star I would give that unfortunately they don’t have so I have to give 1 star but they don’t worth 1 star too.

  • Deanna Canady

    This product is a piece of crap! It couldn’t even cut a tomato and broke the first time I used it! While cleaning it ( so I could return it) i cut my thumb really bad. The only thing this product dices and cuts is your fingers! Can’t believe it’s still on the market!!!!
