  • This Amazon's Choice veggie chopper can slice through onions (and other vegetables) in seconds.

There's only so much time in the day, so why waste it on tedious meal prep? When you're in a hurry, a few kitchen tools can help speed up the process without compromising on the quality or number of ingredients included in your meal.

The one kitchen tool we can't get over? This Pro Vegetable Chopper by Müeller ($23.87; amazon.com). While it's a simple concept, cutting up vegetables is probably one of the most time-consuming parts of making a healthy, nutrient-rich meal. With this gadget, you can chop and dice up to 4 cups of produce at a time — so you'll never have to cut back on veggies in your meal simply because you're pressed for time.

You can cut back on tears shed while mincing onions, because the storage container that catches your chopped veggies also helps to contain onion vapors. And you can feel safe with your veggies landing in this contraption, since the inner walls are made from FDA-certified BPA-free materials. The blades are high-quality, stainless steel discs for precisely slicing through produce.

Taking care of your Müeller veggie chopper is easy, too. All parts are dishwasher-safe, and it comes with a scrubbing brush for thoroughly washing in tough-to-clean areas.

For peace of mind when purchasing this product, you'll be glad to know that more than 3,788 Amazon customers have reviewed and rated it. Not only is it a No.1 best-selling kitchen gadget on Amazon, but it also received an average 4.7- out of 5-star rating, meaning you know this appliance has been put to the test.
