Steering Wheel Chopper

Encourage kids to help out in the kitchen.

 

This vegetable or salad cutter is designed to bring children into the kitchen and help their parents prepare meals. The handle mimics the aesthetic of a toy steering wheel and requires two hands to function.

 

Process

The vegetable cutter prototype was carved out of blue foam, covered with aqua-resin, and then painted with acrylic paint. The aqua-resin fills in the blue foam and creates a surface suitable for painting. Finally, aluminum sheet metal was cut to size with a jeweler's saw and wedged into the handle.
