I want some tool that can help me quickly: dice onions finely : 2 large onions at one go julienne carrots shred carrots like the handheld shredder commonly used in Indian kitchens / fine shred onions for raita chop : green beans, okra (tricky?) thin slices of onions I currently do all this with a knife, and reasonably fast. But looking for what to buy that can help me do these quickly, at one go or something like that because we always cook from scratch at home (sob!). Should I go for a food chopper/processor, or a mandolin or a combination or something else? What do you use at home / are eyeing? Black Friday is coming, so detailed discussions are welcome! P.S: I'm eyeing this one..
