Nut chopping device?

toodie jane | Dec 16, 2009 08:26 PM

Every year I make several batches of English Toffee, for which I hand chop about 3# of almonds. Yack!!

I need to find a device which will CHOP the nuts nicely into 1/8" dice. I don't want to grind the nuts, (food processor) which makes a powdery mess. I want nice sharp angles on the chop.

Would something like a mezzaluna work? I'm thinking one of those that has a companion bowl?

Mezzaluna users, what say ye? Or other devices? Almonds are harder than walnuts or pecans, and I'd love to give my chef's knife and my biceps a rest.
