After reading many reviews for rotary herb-cutting tools, I was a little concerned. But the Zyliss hadn't appeared in my amazon search because its name doesn't include "rotary." I came across a link to it on amazon via a broader internet search.
Anyway, it IS sharp and cuts the basil, parsley, thyme, oregano, etc., just as I had hoped. It is also super easy to clean. I couldn't be happier! (And next time, I'll just look for Zyliss first!)

This tool works very well for chopping herbs, but I just returned from the emergency room with 15 stitches in my thumb. I tried pulling the top off to clean it, however, my hand slipped when the top didn't pop off and the blades ran across my thumb. It did work well on both the herbs and my thumb. I should have put on the blade cover on before trying to remove the top. The top just didn't pop off as I expected. I watched a video on YouTube that made it seem a lot easier to get the top off than it was in reality. Just be careful before using it as the blades are extremely sharp.

I love to use fresh herbs but even with a great knife and good knife skills, it's difficult to get a good mince quickly. I used my new Zyliss FastCut Herb Tool today and could not believe how easy it was to mince fresh cilantro in a flash! I highly recommend this product -- sharp blades, great mechanism and easy to clean!

This is the best mincing tool I have ever used! You can turn a double hand full of spinach into a half cup of crumbs in seconds! The handle turns 90 degrees so you can use it which ever way is more comfortable. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating is the blade cover. I read a lot of reviews that said it was dangerously sharp, and I can tell you that is an understatement! I think the blade cover was purposely designed to get you bleeding! Instead of a central located knob away from the blades, the tabs to get hold of it to pull it off or replace it are on the far outside edges right next to the blades. I was very careful when I first removed the cover because of the reviews and I still cut myself, badly! After the bleeding stopped 30 minutes later, I got out a pair of leather gloves to work with the thing. Bottom line is I love this thing, it works great but you must be cautious when using. I have procedures I use now that I highly recommend following. When taking the cover on or off, or when disassembling for cleaning you should ALWAYS WEAR LEATHER GLOVES!!! Not jerseys or cottons because this thing will cut right through them! I cannot stress enough how sharp the cutter blades are! When I have it fully configured to use and only need to touch the handle that is when I remove the gloves, any other time they are on. I know it sounds scary and dangerous, but don't let it keep you from trying this tool because it works great and is very useful. It just needs to be handled safely.

I'll echo what others have said, this thing WORKS! Yes, the blades are very sharp, so just be careful when pulling it apart. Also, the drier the herb, the better this thing works with it (when the herbs are damp, they tend to cling to the blades more than get chopped).

I will say, cleaning it, even once you get it open, is not the easiest. I use a kitchen brush to get in between the blades (becasue a hot stream of water doesnt always flush it all out).

I have had several herb cutters and none of them really worked. They were more trouble than help. Nevertheless I never gave up and was lucky to purchase this one because, although a bit difficult to clean because of the sharp edges of the blades, it works to perfection.

I got this to replace a Microplane twisting chopper that stopped working correctly after I dropped it. I wasn't sure what to expect with the Zyliss but I really liked there garlic press and thought I'd give it a try. It fits comfortably in my hand and makes short work of everything I've put in front of it.
It's easy to use and I like how you can press down from the top, or put your hand in the loop if you need to apply more pressure. The only iffy thing I'd say is trying to open it up to clean out the blades. It's kind of difficult to twist off and those blades are sharp enough that if you don't have the guard over them I could see where you'd cut yourself pretty good. Other than that I think it's well worth it.

The design of this product allows you to use it two different ways which other products don't offer. No a deal breaker for me but its a nice bonus.
The blades on this tool are very, very, very VERY sharp. It cut through any herb with ease and made herb cutting very easy and fast.
This tool is easy to take apart and clean, just make sure you put the blade shield on when taking it apart.

Excellent kitchen tool. Makes chopping so easy! Cleans easily. However, quite large, doesn't fit in a drawer. It has to bo in the cupboard.

After reading the reviews, and recognizing that I am " chopping challenged", I knew that this would be an accident waiting to happen. However, the reviews also indicated that it works for mincing herbs, which is what I wanted. Therefore, I ordered a pair of Dyneema cut proof gloves in size small. They are light weight, breathable and washable. Not bulky at all. The tool is indeed very effective, but the design is such that your hands need to go near the sharp blades to remove the cover to clean or rotate. The blade cover also is tricky to put on. All this is no problem with the gloves on, but I would strongly recommend wearing them while using this tool.
