If you've been anywhere near TikTok in the last few months, you know that no one wants to hand-chop their vegetables anymore. Indeed, in video after video, amateur chefs (the more serious culinary pros seem to tend to stick to knives) can be seen placing a cucumber or something of the like inside a plastic white box, then slamming the lid of said box down on top of whatever unsuspecting vegetable they are craving that day. The vegetable then emerges, perfectly cubed, at the bottom of the box, ready in seconds.

If this sounds like it might save you a ton of time in the kitchen, particularly as you prepare for holiday parties and Thanksgiving dinners (and even Black Friday home sales, which we'll be closely monitoring here) you are probably correct. And luckily, you can shop this internet-beloved hack at Target for just $23.

The viral kitchen hack

I like shopping OXO for the quality. This well-known brand is known for its dependable, affordable kitchen utensils, which makes me feel a lot better about recommending it. With a vegetable chopper like this, you wouldn't want it to break easily or feel chintzy; that would certainly defeat the purpose of the hack.

This specific OXO manual food chopper, available from Target, has four stars across 157 reviews on and even features an "easy pour opening" in the front so you can dump your maximum 2.5 cups of newly-chopped veggies into whatever dish you're making without disassembling the utensil itself. Now that's what I call working smarter, not harder.
