It didn't take us long to fall in love with it.
It's so simple. Rest the blade in the bottom, add vegetables, put the top on, sit the motor on top and press down. You choose how coarse or fine you want to chop your veggies.
There is no need to perfectly line things up nor need to twist the cap on to secure it and no need to line up the motor to pass a safety mechanism.
It is QUICK & EASY, QUICK & EASY, QUICK & EASY.
Is it less safe? No. As soon as you let pressure off the button on top it stops spinning the blade.
It is easy to clean. Simply remove the motor and place the items in the dishwasher. I always put plastic on the top shelf of the dishwasher since plastic is more prone to melt in the lower part.
This item does not have any settings for speed nor does it have multiple blades for slicing and other things.
This is a chopper and it does it's job very well.
The top/motor is a gorgeous garnet red and the whole thing is just well, pretty. It won't be the end of the world if space constraints mean it has to live on the counter.
It's reasonably easy to clean. Though it's top rack dishwasher safe (except for the motor) it's the work of a moment to wash in the sink. More about that below.
Here's what's to love about this gadget:
It's BIG. It can handle a couple of large onions at a time. Peel, cut in eighths and no more tears. The whole onion operation takes less than a minute.
It's powerful. I chunked up some large carrots--the kind you could use for stair stringers--and the Oster made them into lovely soup bits in five seconds. There was only one unshredded bit in the bowl.
There's no struggle to lock the top to the bottom, the way there is with the Cuisinart. The clear top fits easily on the bottom container, the motor goes on top of the clear top and if it won't immediately start, you just twist it around until it's seated.
Here's the best part:
The design is genius. The body of the chopper is in two pieces, so the motor never comes in contact with the food. A quick wipe and cleanup of the motor is done. Even though there are ridges in the container portion of the chopper, it's fast and simple to slosh some hot soapy water around, give it a scrub with whatever you use to wash dishes, rinse and dry--or reuse. The chopping blades are attached to a longish center shaft which makes an admirable handle for washing them. The blades are deadly sharp, and unless you do something really stupid, it'll be hard to injure yourself.Read more ›
EDIT, the Celery Chopping Report. I lopped off the top 1/3 of a celery stalk, leaves and all, and dumped it into this Oster baby. 10 'hits' on the button, and all was minced fine, great fragrance. No strings! Hint: use a pastry brush to remove what clings to the bowl. Then just rinse it out (fill bowl while blade inside, put on top, swish around, done).
EDIT, the Carrot Chopping Report: 20 hits on the pulse button, to coarsely chop six carrots I simply broke in half prior to putting them in the bowl. 40 hits, to finely mince them. Very happy camper!
PS: I left the chopped carrots in the bowl for several hours, before emptying out. NO CARROT STAIN! Yay! Just rinsed the bowl and top, finis!
EDIT, the Onion Chopping Report: oh yeah, this baby's a keeper. I wanna give it five stars, but haven't tested longevity. This is the first time I've used a food processor which I actually enjoy.
First, the thing is quiet. It makes a low-frequency bursting sound, not that high-pitched whine so common in the Salad Shooter and food processors. Sounds like LL Bean boots stamping or scraping on pavement. Very powerful.
And baby, you'd better only pulse for a second, if you want chopped rather than minced onions.Read more ›
It does a very nice job of chopping. Depending on the result you want, you might have to pulse it rather than hold down the top. It does not have more than one speed, but pulsing effectively handles that. My smaller, older one did have two speeds but I found I pretty much always used the higher one, so that doesn't bother me. This chopper is not especially quiet - but it's not so loud it becomes annoying.
One of my favorite things about this chopper is the way the motor sits atop the bowl with an additional piece of molded plastic between the motor and the bowl. On my older, smaller chopper the motorized top sat directly over the bowl, meaning it was far more difficult to clean. With this, the bowl, bowl top and blade are all easily washable, and also can be put in the dishwasher. My older one came with a separate lid to put over the bowl for storage, but I never used it... this one does not have the ability to be used for storage. That's no issue for me.
While this will never replace a full-featured food processor, I find that I use this a lot more than the FP, because it's faster, easier and less work to clean up. And it's the 'right' size bowl. Be aware that the blade is extremely sharp and handle it with caution. Because it's a chopper and not a multi-tasking processor, it is much lighter.Read more ›

I love the chopper and would like to give it 5 stars but I can't, since I had to return my first one because it died after using it only a few times. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Zsuzsanna Soltesz-Gyimesine
This is exactly what I needed. Just a chopper, and it does it job well. It will cut up an onion in seconds. For the price you cannot beat it. Hopefully it will last a long time.Published 23 days ago by Wayne
