Our Pop Chef Review
Pop Chef is designed as a fun way to get kids involved in food preparation. Shapes are cut with the cutter and then “popped” out of the tube by squeezing the bulb.
The biggest marketing appeal of the product – the “pop” created by squeezing the bulb – is also its biggest drawback. While the cutting feature worked to varying degrees (seemingly dependent on the ripeness of the fruit, and it didn’t work well on bread), the ability to “pop” the food out of the tube did not seem nearly as easy as it looked in the commercial. We found that food often became lodged in the tube, which we had to mangle to extract. When working with fruit, this proved to be quite messy.
We didn’t find much of an advantage over using inexpensive cookie cutters, which will also make these fun shapes without the nuisance of extracting them from a tube.
Pop Chef is on par with inexpensive cookie cutters. If you want to try it, pick it up locally to avoid shipping charges and delays. Depending on your experience, Pop Chef may be frustrating or a fun product to use with your children.
