Cool Tools: Chocolate Chipper

Do you love your knife? I mean, really, really love it?

If you do, you’ll never chop chocolate with it because few things will dull the edge faster than cutting through brittle, dark chocolate.

It’s a good way to chip your knife edge, too, so save your knife and buy a chocolate chipper.

It’s inexpensive and easy to use, although, it will dent soft wood cutting boards, so either chip the chocolate on a plastic chopping board you don’t mind pockmarking, or on a hard surface (which you know you’re never supposed to use a knife on, right? Right.)

Show your knife how much you really care.

Where to buy:

Amazon or check with your local kitchen store.

    the chocolate ‘chipper’ in the advertisement with the ‘coocolate’ seems a much more substantial implement than the one illustrated underneath. Is there a difference and where may I buy the more substantial- looking one?

      Margo… I bought my chipper at a small, independently owned kitchen store in Phoenix, that has unfortunately gone out of business. I don’t know where you live but if you have a kitchen/cooking store near you, check with them. Sur La Table may have one, although it is not on their website.

      I do believe the one at Amazon is sturdier than it appears in the picture.
