I have had my treasured Pampered Chef chopper for years now. I have never had a problem with it. It's great when I make macaroni salad and potato salad to chop up the celery, carrots, onion, and even the hard-boiled eggs I use for my salads. I even use it when I make home-made crabcakes to chop up the filler ingredients. It comes apart easily for cleaning and I still store it in the box it came with. I have bought and returned food processors, but will definitely hold onto my chopper!
LOVE this chopper. It makes things super easy to cut up and with the round rubber detachable bottom, quick and simple! Only thing I do not like about this is it hard to take apart and clean. You have to completely take it apart to clean it out and the blades are super sharp, so you have to watch your fingers when your messing with this to get it apart!!
This gadget is easily the most used in my kitchen for chopping veggies, nuts, even leftover meat for a quick hash. Yes, a knife works well too, but this is far easier and faster! I don't have a lot of gadgets, but once I saw this in action, I knew I had to try it., and it has proved to be a time saver. With two or three slaps to the cushioned top with the palm of my hand, I have neatly chopped onion, with no tears, for a salad or soup; bits of nuts for breads or cookies; even fresh herbs. The outer cup protects fingers from the blade. The chopper is wonderful for a quickly prepared mirepoix! While I also love my food processor, this little gadget is much quicker and easier to clean. It pulls apart for quick washing, and it's easy to wash and dry. It also sits in an easily accessible cupboard to simply pull out and chop away -- easier than the stored food processor which requires some fussing before it's ready to use. The only issue I've had is that the plastic blade cover chipped a bit when it was accidentally dropped, but it was replaced by my Pampered Chef rep under the generous PC warranty. I'm not big on lots of kitchen gadgets, but this one is my favorite and most used, and i've given several as gifts to other knife-wielders who have since become chopper converts.
