Life Cut Short.
« on: May 10, 2015, 10:58 PM »
Yesterday marked a sad day for our family.  It is with great regret I must announce the untimely passing of a dear old friend.  Our much loved Zyliss Autochop.  A remnant in the kitchen cupboard from the 70's, this unique device has saved thousands of tears in the preparation of onions, unendingly chopped hundreds of carrots and celery stalks to a fine dice, reduced garlic cloves to pulp with no fuss, chopped fresh herbs and never baulked at a few rashers of bacon.

Sadly when I went to use it yesterday the blade detached from the spring loaded plunger and in so doing broke the blade guide as well.  A quick search on the net for a replacement found a few in "Museum" like sites.  The good thing is though that there is a newer model.

I wonder if we'll get 30 years service from a new one.

Vale Zyliss Autochop (in Red and White).
