This product has great & not so great features. This was a Christmas gift in 2013. It really is great for small jobs, such as chopping 1 cup of nuts, etc. and is easy to clean. Not so great is the bowl. After a year, the bowl had to be replaced. Another year has gone by and the bowl needs replacing again - the tabs keep breaking off. This is a flaw in the product.
Food choppers eliminate many dicing chores and get the job done in seconds instead of spending tedious time with a knife and cutting board. The minis in particular are a must-have as they are quick to clean and tuck compactly away in a cabinet. Smaller than processors, they're still workhorses with ample sized bowls that will give you the right consistency for veggies and any other items you want to puree or grind.
