The tool features several herb-stripping holes of varying sizes, perfect for parsley, tarragon, thyme, and more. Like all Starfrit utensils, the meat chopper is made of heat-resistant nylon (up to 410F), won't scratch your cookware, and is dishwasher safe.

The "Amazon's Choice" seasoning and spice chopper has snagged an average rating of 4.5 stars from more than 400 reviews.

With top marks for sturdiness, value, and ease of use, shoppers call the meat chopper "amazing" and their "new favourite [kitchen] gadget."

"[I] would recommend [it] to anyone who cooks ground meat," they add.

While the chopper has earned praise for being a "versatile" and "useful" kitchen tool, some shoppers wish it was designed with "larger waves" to break up meat more easily.
