With modern trends towards healthy eating, there is increased demand for freshly prepared and well-presented vegetables and fruit. The Ital vegetable cutter available from Apuro (Solihull, West Midlands) produces a steady stream of chopped vegetables at a high speed to keep prep time to a minimum, says the firm.

It comes complete with four blades and a storage basket. Its stainless steel construction is designed for hygiene and durability and it has a removable lid for easy cleaning and blade changing.
