Pop Chef is the new, fast and easy way to make fabulous edible creations! The secret is its
3-in-one action – which shapes, pops, and creates stars, circles, hearts, and more without the
mess or hassle of knives or cookie cutters. With Pop Chef you can design eye popping snacks,
party platters, meals, even gifts like a pro! It’s a snack-tivity that’s even safe for kids to use.
Perfect for use on fruits, cheeses, vegetables, breads and more, Pop Chef lets you “push” and
“pop” your way through show stopping food preparations in seconds.

I have to admit I was impressed with the PopChef. First, it does exactly what it’s suppose to do. However, it was easy enough that both my 9 year old and my 6 year old could do it. We practiced on fruit, but my kids loved making themselves little sandwiches with it. There was plenty of shapes for them to pick from and I recommend picking one up! It doesn’t get any easier than this to make eye popping snacks, party platters, meals, and even gifts!
