As I have one of these [that has lasted over 10 years now], I bought this for a friend. I love veggies and have a salad almost every night. My friends call my concoction a salad hash. Due to some sad dental problems long ago, I needed to chop my carrots, etc. into small bits, and this little guy does the trick in an instant! I love the speed and thoroughness of the chop. When hearing a friend complain about having to cut veggies into small bits for a recipe she likes, I want to put her out of her chopping misery and provide an instant solution. Also, the size of this is so tiny, it fits into a cupboard with ease and it's so easy to keep clean; three loose parts and the power base. Easy.
...very disappointing. I was given this Proctor Silex mini-chopper as a gift 25 years ago, and used it religiously until the motor finally quit and was really excited to see the same mini-chopper available. NOT SO GOOD....the speed and endurance of this piece is no comparison to the one I had from 25 years ago.....it's OK.
