Having retired, I now have time to travel and gadabout, and so I have established this blog to share my travels with family and friends. Most of my posts will cover travels away from home, but occasionally I may post local activities. I hope you enjoy my posts, and I welcome feedback from you. Photos by me unless otherwise noted.
Many of the kitchen gadgets that I've been persuaded to buy because of some convincing ad have proven useless, but this Nut Chopper by Progressive is a great find. It works beautifully for chopping nuts, either coarsely or finely, when you don't want to use the food processor. I believe I ordered it after I had seen a positive review of it in the NY Times. I've been using it a lot this Christmas season when I've needed chopped nuts for making English Toffee.

There are two settings, fine or coarse, depending on which way you turn the handle. It's quick, and it cleans up quickly. It's much easier to clean than a food processor. Yes, this is one little kitchen gadget that lives up to its claims.
