Smashed my hand, painful to dice/chop, considering a commercial chopper

As I’ve gotten older it’s become more difficult for me to chop so much. One reason is I smashed my right hand in early 2020 and while it got better I think I’ve lost strength in it. No insurance and I don’t qualify for Medicare for 2 more years. Also, I’m short, 5’1”, so while I have a slightly shorter island to cut at it’s still not ideal. I often get 20lbs of Onions/tomatoes/peppers at a time and like to chop and freeze or share with friends. I’ve had home food choppers in the past and NOT been satisfied with them so lately I’ve been looking at commercial grade choppers with a levered handle. The ones I’m looking at run $100 ~ $150. Do you think I’d be satisfied with a commercial chopper? Or is there a good home chopper that might work for me? Here is an example of the commercial, lever style chopper I’m considering; https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0145/3942/3844/products/commercial-chopper-m100-11_d52bd035-114d-4e73-aea3-83ebaf1ce516_2048x2048.jpg?v=1595869097 submitted by /u/gmmiller [link] [comments]
