I bought this for my wife about a year ago. We have a high quality food processor that it great but it takes up counter space and it is a hassel to take it out. Therefore, we only really use it when we have a big batch of something. My wife tried a couple of those ‘slap shot’ devices, but they always would break after a short time. I had tried another motorized mini-chop that cost about $14 at a local store but it just didn’t work very well. For $20 i thought i would give the b&d a try and now we both use it and love it. It is really small and light weight and it is very easy to grab it and use it. Clean up is super easy too, i just add some water to the bowl and a drop of soap and let it run for a couple of seconds. I rinse out the bowl, wipe down the motor housing and i’m good to go. It does a great job at chopping and it offers a lower speed which is great for chopping succulent vegetables like green peppers.
Love it, bought one for me and one for my parents. I first purchased a hand food chopper thinking that an electric one would be annoying because i don’t have conveniently placed electrical outlets in my old weirdly designed kitchen, and i was worried it would be difficult to clean. The bottom parts are dishwasher safe. The top part you can take a paper towel with some soap or a sponge to and clean it very easily and i am one of those people often lovingly referred to as a ‘germaphobe’. The outlet thing – i actually fill it up and stand near an outlet next to my fridge because it is so much more convenient. I find myself cooking more because i bought it. I dropped it last time i used it so next paycheck i will be buying another one. It’s plastic so don’t drop it. I cracked the plastic bottom when i dropped it.

I got this hoping i could dice and chop things like onions, celery, water chestnuts, carrots, bell peppers. I kind of assumed that this would end up pureeing the vegetables instead of chopping and dicing but i’m lazy so i took a chance on this bad boy. Jeez was i sure wrong about the puree part. I noticed the blades are not so close together so i thought that maybe diced chunks may come out better and it sure turned out right. All you have to do is pulse the food chopper until the desired size is attained. The 3 cup bowl comes in handy too. Be careful when washing the blades. I learned when i first washed the blades and sliced my finger deeply.
