I bought this from Amazon two years ago and have been using it ever since. I thought it might be about time to write a review. And I prepped for that by reading some of the other reviews.

Some of reviewers clearly occupy a different universe than me. Maybe they escaped from Area 51 and are now hell-bent on worldwide domination of the kitchen utensils market. If I understand them correctly, this chopper is poorly designed, difficult to clean, hard to assemble, small in capacity, has a lock that gets gummed up, is not likely to last long...and one reviewer with a lot of votes even said you can only chop by using the Smart Base.

Bah! These people are nuts. Chopped nuts if you please.

Zyliss occupies a distinguished place in the small utensils market because its designs are effective and attractive, construction is solid, and prices are reasonable. This chopper is all of those things, and I've got two years of experience with this chopper to back me up on this point. I have used the chopper regularly to chop garlic, onions, meat, olives, mushrooms, and other such items. I don't use it to chop tomatoes because that seems patently silly, and also because it's easier to buy canned diced tomatoes. Anyway, here are some specific reflections:

1. I have never used the Smart Base. It's there somewhere in my cupboards, but I just tend to pile up choppable items on my Oxo cutting board and serially chop through the piles. Doing it this way makes it easy to go hrough a number of piles very rapidly.

2. To the one person who hinted that this might damage cutting boards: nope! You're wrong.

3. After two years of solid use, the chopper overall is still in essentially new condition.

I have been a devoted Zyliss chopper fan ever since I bought my first one in 1995. For a product that gets such heavy use, they are very durable.

That said, I have to add that this particular model, the Zyliss Easy Chop Food Chopper with Smart Base, is NOT their best effort. They are trying too hard. The slanted sides of the chopper bin are not adequately wiped by those ineffective little wipers, and the results of the chopping is quite uneven. As a matter of fact, after purchasing this model and using it, I bought their less pricey model at my local kitchen store and it does a much better job and is just as hard/easy to clean. Unfortunately I failed to return the "Smart Base" model in time to get a full refund, so I guess I'll just give it to someone I don't like all that well...

I want to say that neither of these choppers can hold a candle to the first Zyliss I had. (It was the design that Slap Chop ripped off and made cheap copies of that did not hold up and performed so poorly.) That Zyliss model chopped evenly, held up under heavy use, was EASY to clean, and was entirely satisfactory. I dream of the day that Zyliss brings this model back. I'd stock up a lifetime's supply!

I am pleased with my recent purchase of this item. Unit is super easy to take apart and clean. Very easy to use. One must bang top down hard (strong spring) to get proper rotation of items being chopped. The bottom part can be detached, filled with item to chop, reattach top and begin chopping. Easy, neat and compact to use. Pressing down on the top compresses tool which moves the choppers down into the lower section of the unit and when unit is fully compressed, the red slidder button will lock the unit in the compressed state for better storage.

We have gone through and broken 2 other types of hand choppers in the last year. The plastic tends to break during chopping. This one is sturdy with thicker plastic. It is lasting quite well. If you don't want to use an electrical food processor and have small chopping jobs, this is the best by far.

The Zyliss Food Chopper is excellent. It works really well and I would buy it again. Chopps smaller quantities better than larger ones. And chopps "harder" items (e.g. onions, garlic, ginger) better than "softer" items (e.g. tomatoes).

I love this chopper! It is so easy to clean and the possibilities are endless. I have even used it to chop meats. The smart base is great when you want to keep all of your chopped items from spreading all over the cutting board.

This chopper seems to be a well thought out design. It comes apart easily so that all the nooks and crannies can be easily cleaned. I haven't tried it in the dishwasher, but it feels like it would survive that fine.

The base design is quite nice - you can chop in the cup on the rubber lid, you can chop in another plastic cup, or you can chop on your cutting board. That gives a lot of flexibility for various foods.

So far this has been very handy, and is probably a bit nicer to work with than a mini-food processor. I'd recommend it.
