for a versatile chopper
a gift for anyone
I use it regularly to chop many different kinds of vegetables, including onions, celery, mushrooms and carrots. Works well for apples too. I find that it is a terrific time saver. I was concerned that some reviewers said theirs broke soon after purchasing. Mine so far doesn’t seem at all prone to that. It seems like it is very well made. Whether this one is better than the other higher profile brand, I don’t know, but my buying instincts told me that this one probably was the best. I was also concerned it might be more trouble to wash it than it is worth in convenience, as some have said. Not the case for me. It admittedly can be slightly challenging getting all the food pieces out of the chopper parts, but the nylon bristle brush that comes with it makes it a relatively easy job. I have used my chopper almost daily for several weeks now. I am actually finding that I’m more eager to cook since getting this thing.
This is my fourth chopper in four years. I wore two out and bought a third that just didn't work. I need a chopper because I cook lots and have gotten spoiled by the convenience of a veggie chopper. I read every review for every chopper because I was determined to get the right one - after the disappointment of the last one. I ordered the Mueller and decided to give it a big workout and to send it right back if it was another disappointment. I made a big pot of Summer squash soup which involved chopping two onions, one leek and two squash. This little beauty flew through the whole ordeal. And the two choices of sizes made it great to go from onions (small) to squash (large). Another feature that I love is the removable pusher - usually a tough thing to clean. My last choppers had stationary pushers that meant cleaning them with a brush. This one comes out and goes right into the dishwasher. Oh yeah - I got as winner!!!!
I've only used this once...since it just arrived yesterday. There are some foods I love to eat but just hate preparing. It takes me a long time to dice and I like finely diced veggies. I love chopped salads but unless I am making enough to feed an army, it's not worth using the food processor. I made a chopped salad with this thing in a matter of minutes. While it's true I had to cut the veggies so they would fit, that is not an issue at all. Clean-up was a breeze. I have a beautiful chopped salad waiting for me. I ordered two, hoping I would like it. One goes in the motorhome. I will use this a lot. I am going to take this to my mother (85 years old) to see if she can use it. Arthritis makes dicing veggies difficult for her. If she can use it, I'll order one for her as well.
Well I just got it and immediately used it. It cut precooked sirloin medium rare steaks from sams club (by the way smiths sirloins tastes way better), celery, bell pepper, and onion. Added merlot wine, a bit of pot roast seasoning (mainly flour), garlic of course, salt and pepper, teryaki sauce, soy sauce. I honestly think i cooked it in like 15 minutes no more. Delicious. Absolutely loved the texture of the food although would be nice if they included one more larger hole cutter. This tool reduced my time by half and made everything MUCH easier and MUCH funner. Will see how the longevity is. I will change my review if not.
Every year my family makes a recipe for the holidays that requires 12 large onions chopped up. I'm the guy that usually does the chopping. My son had broken my onion goggles a few weeks ago by slamming them in the drawer so I was looking to order a new pair when I stumbled across this product. Wow! What a serendipitous discovery. This thing is amazing.
I hate leaving reviews but I must say that this cooking tool is amazing. The blades are sharp and cut my prep time down by more than half. I recommend cutting most vegetables in half before you use this. shockingly it even Cuts potatoes with ease. I have and will continue to recommend this product to friends and family.
I love this chopper. It definitely is sharp, but it has to be in order to cut through vegetables. It even cuts tomatoes. Someone mentioned putting the meaty part of the vegetable down and the peel up. That is great advice. Definitely don't touch the blades with your fingers! Don't let your kids play with this – it is sharp enough to cut vegetables, so it will definitely cut little fingers. We found this out the hard way.
I HATE chopping onions. I actually hate eating onions, too, but they're easy enough to pick around. The chopping is what really gets me. My eyes always tear up and it's painful. I've tried chewing gum and running water and all the old wives' tales they tell you, but nothing really worked. Until this. It's got a solid base, and lets you dice veggies like those dreaded onions with ease. It's great for kids to help in the kitchen, or maybe those with arthritis who can't chop as well with a chef's knife. It's easy to clean (just throw it int he dishwasher) and it comes with two different sizes of choppers. I was pleasantly surprised.
I've had this onion chopper for a couple of months and it gets used several times a week for various veggies. It is amazing. I bought one for my mom for Christmas and decided to get one for myself after a cheaper version broke on me. This chops evenly and quickly without a significant amount of pressure, has the capacity to hold one onion or bell pepper - maybe two if they are small and cleans fairly easily. Blades are still super sharp and it still chops as well as it did initially. My kids argue over who gets to chop veggies since we got this! Even my 3 y/o can push down hard enough to chop most things.
With this purchase I came across a rare combination, Excellent product and outstanding customer service. I tried other vegetable choppers and food processors. Off all those this is the best. Cutting vegetables like onion, carrot, potato, cabbage etc is very easy and cleaning is easy too.. Be cautious the blades are sharp and don't discriminate between fingers and vegetables. I like this product and recommend this.
If you are buying this - please BE REALLY REALLY CAREFUL - it is super sharp and that super sharp is 5* positive and 5* negative - depends on how is your experience. The product is awesome but dangerous to use. My spouse couldn't touch it after finger was sliced so returned it.
This has saved my hand ! It takes little to no time now to make chopped salads which my family loves and was spending money on buying at the deli. Now I make three times the amount for a fraction of the cost and I know it’s fresh and clean. Super easy to use Original item arrived and it broke before I had a chance to use it. Emailed company and in two days I had a free replacement. Amazing customer service and a great product. I will be buying one for everyone on my holiday list!!
I am not a gadget person but I like to make salad & hate to chop veggies so I ordered this hoping it might inspire me. The first day I got this I made a HUGE bowl of tuna salad with lots of celery, apples & onions in just minutes. You have to cut the veg just small enough to fit in which I was lazy about & I was pleasantly surprised It doesn't take alot of force to push them through the dicer . I love that the bottom holder can hold a lot of chopped vegetables which saves the hassle of constantly dumping out & putting together. clean up was a cinch . Love this thing.
I got this as a Christmas present for my husband for Xmas. I was actually the first one to try it out. I made fried diced potatoes with our dinner tonight and decided to try out the chopper to save time. I'm in love with it and will probably end up using it more than he does. I was able to chop 3 large potatoes in less than 2 minutes. It's also very easy to manually clean and can go in the top rack of the dishwasher which I love. Overall a wonderful addition to the kitchen and I'm so happy I found it.
The chopper is easy to use, sturdy, and super easy to clean. This is the perfect chopper for chopping onions. I can chop onions and bag them in plastic bags and put them into the freezer to use them as a time saver when I'm cooking. I used to chop onions in my food processor, but there would be a lot of onion juice so the onions would freeze into a block. With this chopper, the onions don't emit a lot of juice so no sticking together.
This thing is SHARP!! Please be careful when opening the box and washing each of the attachments. This thing cut both myself and my mothers hands. All that said though, it is quite the handy tool and can quickly do a trillion things you need, especially for a newbie chef like me.
This is a great chopper. I agree with the other 5 star reviews here. What I would like to add to this review thread is a complaint several users are having and posting negative reviews. The hinge that holds the top gray piece to the bottom clear tray can appear to be broken. My wife experienced that and was about to go back to her old chopper when she figured it out. If you take the top gray piece and turn it upside down you will see a small lever on the hinged end. When you move this lever up or down it either engages or disengages the hinge. It is rather easy once you see it. Disengaging the hinge allows for it to separate into two pieces so it fits better in the dishwasher.
I have purchased all sorts of onion choppers in the past, but this one really works. It is easy to use, chop, clean, and store. I have rheumatoid arthritis in both hands and it is very difficult for me to chop things up at times. This was a godsend when I found this product. I have had it for a month and am still really happy with it. One note though: it is not a toy and the blades in the two discs are SHARP! Be careful when you go to wash them. I do not have a dishwasher so I have to wash them by hand. This is not a negative reflection on the product at all! I wasn't paying attention when I cleaned the chopper the first of couple of times. I recommend this product. It's not a piece of cheap junk. It's solidly made, and it is safe, and very effective. :)
My mom absolutely loves this chopper. She is an avid cook and cooks 2 meals everyday that involve chopping onions. I have been gifting onion choppers to my mom for the last 4 years. Initially I had bought the chopper from a different company which broke quite easily. However, this one is much more sturdy and my mother is very happy with it. My mom also uses this chopper for ginger, carrots and some squashes. She mentioned that the blades and body of this chopper is much better than the previous brand.
i really liked this product wish I would of purchased earlier ,I liked the way it handled it cut really quick threw my vegies and it had a compartment so your food can fall in was made great so far holding up I have used it several times already and only had it 3 weeks. on sturdiness I would of gave 5 stars instead of 4 but im going to wait and see on how it holds up a couple of months from now
At first I had a bit of a problem changing the blade, trying to be extremely careful, knowing full well that it's SO SO SHARP, but I figured it out and got it done! Once I was able to overcome that small problem everything was great! Those sharp blades made short work of the chopping jobs I put them to so I am very happy with my new chopper and looking forward to my next recipe that needs chopped something (apples, maybe?) Also, must mention how sturdy this chopper is relative to previous choppers I've had. I can tell this one will LAST unlike the other ones which I had to toss in the trash because they turned out to be so FLIMSY! VERY HAPPY WITH MY PURCHASE!
Does an okay job, but really hard to press even tomatoes through. Slicing onions was quick and easy, but dicing took some extra pressure. Doubt I would have bought it if I'd tried it first. I'll keep it, and I'll probably use it, but my sharp knife will get the job done quicker.
I bought this because I have been meal planning and cutting up veggies is my worst nightmare that is until I found this little gem. It cuts down prep time by more than half. The clean up is super easy too. Before this, I used a food processor but would always get discouraged because of the clean up. This is easy and the onions fall neatly into the bottom half of the chopper. I would highly recommend to anyone. I now make my egg salads and pico de gallo in half the time. The only negative thing I could say is that for the onions or anything a little more on the hard side, you will have to put a little force but I found that slamming my hand onto it chops it quick and easy.
I chop a lot of onions, peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, carrots..... This thing works perfect and has a consistent size so everything cooks at the same rate. All i have to do is wash the veggies and cut them in large pieces and the lever action type cutter really is easy to do. My 9 year old grand daughter loves helping as long as she gets to use the chopper! I hand wash the chopper-it is easy. Just be careful with the sharp edges of the cutter! Everything can fit right back inside container to be easily stored inside the cutter when not in use!
I’ve had mine for about 2-1/2 months and use it once or twice a week....Wow. Makes *very* short work of chopping onions. I am not skilled with knives, and have always been disappointed with how I dice and cube. I’ve tried other tools that are supposed to be multi-use (slicing/shedding/cubing/dicing). Some have been fine with some functions, but none has diced or cubed well. This one does: quickly, easily, and tearlessly. So far, I’ve used it only for onions, but if the quality and durability last, I’ll be satisfied if that’s all I ever use it for. (As soup season nears, I’ll undoubtedly try it with potatoes and carrots. When I do, I’ll revisit this review if necessary.)
