Wide Mouth Chop Cup by Ickle Pickle
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!
Placing the red ball on the table beside the empty aluminum cup, you pick up the red ball in one hand and the cup in the other hand. Show both to the audience. You drop the ball into the cup and let everyone see it go in the cup. Turn the cup down onto the table and ask the audience where the ball is. They say "under the cup," and you say "no" as you the lift the cup straight up to show there is no ball under it. "Here it is," you say, taking the red ball from your pocket. After showing the audience this red ball, you put it back in your pocket and ask the audience again where the ball is. Whatever they say, you lift up the cup and show that the red ball is now underneath the cup.

Excellent chop cup Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 30th, 2011
The Ickle Pickle wide mouth chop cup is an excellent chop cup: it is well spun, the plate thickness is right (it will not dent so easily), the gimmick is well hidden and has the right strength. It also can receive large loads (I use mid sized apples) and comes with two good quality balls. It comes with a small bag too.
Sure, this is aluminium, and I would have prefered copper for the extra weight. But this chop cup looks innocent enough so as not arise suspicion from laymen, and it works pretty well!
This is all I need, and it is a definitive keeper, particularly at this price!
Great set, especially for the price. Report this review

I was reading other reviews on this chop cup and I gotta say that yes the secret can be a little strong. But if you do your homework and fool around with adjusting the ball it works perfect. I mean come on, I see too many people complaining when they get a new prop or new trick and it isn't absolutely perfect right out of the gate. We are magicians, everything we do takes work and practice and it takes TIME to figure this stuff out to get it to work the way we want them to for our own style and needs. Stop complaining so much and out the work in to figure it out.
Here is my honest opinion about this chop cup:
Cup- it's aluminum. It's going to be on the lighter side and isn't going to be a heavy brass or copper cup, but I can assure you this is a great cup with the ability to handle great final loads for the ending of your routine. And for spun aluminum, this cup is built to last. Great job by IPP.
Balls- the gimmicked ball can be adjusted. Mine was on the stronger side just like other buyers was, but all it took was a simple tweak and now it works to my needs. Both balls are good quality, but if you do not want to adjust them, just buy a set of balls that are heavier and that should help with the dislodging.
Overall this is a great set for the price and especially for someone wanting to get into the chop cup. Add it to cart, buy it, play with it, make it your own and enjoy performing it for spectators. It's a great trick.
Great starter cup, and too strong Report this review

As others have mentioned here, the secret is a bit too strong. I eventually bought an adjustable ball from another vendor, for half again as much as this costs.
That said, I love the cup. If I keep doing it and get good at it I'll invest in a serious cup, but this is terrific to determine if it's right for me.

The best chop cup for the price Report this review

Definitely my chop cup of choice. The size allows you to end up with some great final loads like a baseball or large lemon or orange. The balls that come with it are okay, but I replaced them quickly with heavier ones and it works like a charm. The included ones make you have to really slam the cup down to make the magic happen. It is built to last and looks amazing against a dark close-up mat (or use the included storage bag for an impromptu one).
Takes final loads like a charm! Report this review

I've had the Morrissey chop cup for ages, and I enjoy it, but the grocery store near me in NYC has freakishly HUGE lemons, and it's an anticlimax when they get jammed in the chop cup for the reveal of the final loads. I bought this Ickle Pickle Chop Cup at Penguin for an awesome price and was very happy. Every lemon I tried out in the store fit like a charm! I even tried oranges and (the ones I tried) fit! Nice product at a reasonable price!
Disappointed with this one Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 26th, 2013
I know for many this chop cup is a BIG HIT, but mine was unreliable. Can't say why as it would be exposure, and I don't want to BASH Ickle Pickle; or a hole in my table, but you can probably guess what I'm referring to. I expected this to be a SLAM BANG good product and let's just say in that area, I was correct.
I have liked other Ickle Pickle products though.

Way too strong! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 11th, 2014
I've had several chop cups and I'm always looking for something different. I purchased the Wide mouth chop cup for table hopping with larger loads. While the cup itself is able to handle larger loads and looks nice...the strength of the you know what...is way too strong...which severely affects the performance in my opinion. I don't like having to BANG the cup every time I set it down onto the table...even when I'm not doing the dirty work, just to make the dirty work appear the same. I wanted more BANG for my buck...but ended up just getting a cup that would be better off as a wide mouth cookie cutter.
