For lazy prep cooks, or those looking to create perfect julienne or dice without perfect knife skills, these Crate & Barrel Alligator Choppers will do the job for you. "With one quick press, hinged plastic cutters slice food into 'sticks' with a razor-sharp grid of stainless blades. Turn 'sticks,' then press again for 'cubes.'" See, you don't even need to know culinary terms to use it! $19.95 – $26.95, depending upon the size.
