In the mean time here's a cool video of the last nifty gadget to goof on.

I'm back. Sorry about the delay.
Didn't find much in the way of odd or obscure kitchen tools in the dark recesses of my kitchen, but I found this gathering dust on a high shelf.


So what is it/what is it used for?

Don't know about the "As seen on TV" part, it was a gift from one of my aunts to my mother. Not a garlic/onion chopper. Not any kind of chopper.

Perhaps because you also have one of these goofy things stashed in a cabinet gathering dust?

The items intended to be stored in this container are indeed green, but that still leaves a large number of possibilities.....

Strictly speaking, neither.
Not dried, bit not fresh, either.

I don't think I would use this gadget unless it is for refuge for the compost heap.

No, its intended use is for storing edibles.
