I am looking to buy a food processor to do very small batches of fruit and vegetables. Very basic, very cheap....and i am looking for something manual(not electricity). Is there a manual version existing? What is it called?
This, a draw string powered chopper, is an interesting idea as well - I have difficultly believing it can produce enough force though.
And there's the rotating handle, crank kind.
You've got options.
Or even more basic, 'knife' ;)
Mandoline. Depending on what model you get it can slice, dice, grate, and chip!
US$20 will get you a basic one. The better ones are often a long running brand with replaceable blades
