What do you chop nuts with?
I'm searching for the magic tool for chopping nuts. I keep my nuts in the freezer so I can grab a few to put on top of salads or in casseroles. They're fairly hard coming out of the freezer and I'm usually in too much of a rush to let them thaw. I normally prefer low-tech devices because there's less to setup and less to clean. But a chef's knife isn't working for me. Portions of the nut go flying as I chop -- even if I try to use my free hand as a shield.
The 3 possibilities I've come up with are a mezzaluna, a chopper attachment for my KitchenAid immersion blender or perhaps the KitchenAid blade coffee grinder. Anyone have any experience with these for nuts??
What do you use??
