June 25, 2014 update: I am happy to say that my replacement chopper is unchanged from the one that I bought nine years ago. It comes with a two-year limited warranty that covers any defect in material or workmanship, not to exceed the purchase price of the product, so save your receipt.
June 11, 2014 update: If you were ever going to get one of these, today is the day. Amazon has them priced at $10.33, a price I have not seen for literally several years. It is worth it just to get the plastic bowl, which is no longer available as a replacement part. This is also a perfect gift for that graduate starting on his/her own or anyone else establishing a new household.
February 13, 2014 update: In response to a question posted today about getting a replacement bowl, I learned the following information. After checking their parts listing online, I called Black & Decker directly, 800-738-0245, and spoke to a representative. As of right now, they will sell replacement parts for the base lid and the blade assembly for this model chopper, but they no longer offer the bowl separately as a replacement part. The representative added that no other bowl in their line will fit this model. That means that if the bowl cracks, you now have to buy a completely new chopper. The replacement bowl that B&D gave me has lasted about 8 years even though it started to split in 2012 (but as of now it still does not leak); I suspect that if I had not cleaned it for many of those years in the dishwasher, it would have lasted longer. Following is are my review and updates from 2005 forward.
As a chopper to use on a daily basis, this is unbeatable. The blades are much more substantial than on other products of this size. However, you have to be very careful with the plastic bowl. The center section that holds the blade has begun to break. Currently half of the circular holder (in the middle) is gone. Although it will still hold the blade, if it breaks any more, it probably won't. I'm going to have to find a replacement for the plastic bowl. October 18, 2005 update: Guess what? I contacted Black & Decker online, and they have a company that they refer you to that handles their replacement parts. In this case they are sending me a complimentary new 3 cup plastic bowl. I wish I could change my rating upward; this is real customer service. July 5, 2007 update: Since I received the replacement bowl, I have used this appliance constantly, that is, three to five times a week. I have had no problems with the center section of the replacement bowl. February 8, 2008 update: Note that when Amazon runs this item for $12.99, it is really a screaming deal.
August 16, 2011 update: You know what? This thing is still going strong. I have had no trouble whatsoever with the replacement bowl. Just don't stress this chopper out with something like chestnuts; those simply need to be cut up by hand.
December 22, 2012 update: The replacement bowl has developed a crack in the bottom, after seven years of constant use, but as long as it does not leak, I will not replace it. However, I note that as of this date, the current price is $17.12 with super saver shipping, the lowest price that I have seen this item for months.
Pros: Everything! Except...
Cons: Cleaning the top is a bit weird, but what I do is after I'm done chopping, I wipe the topper down with a soapy dish cloth and let air dry on the side of the sink.
BUT, that little bit of weirdness is better than hand chopping it, either with a knife, or one of those whack-a-mole style hand choppers. Paying the extra few bucks for this has made my life so much easier! I'd recommend this to anyone with small-portion chopping needs.
I like the small stature as it's easy to store. If you're looking to process a lot of food, or want something free standing, this isn't for you. Invest in a larger model. Because the motor is on top of the unit, you need to hold the unti while operating. But it's super quick, so for me, this is not a big deal at all.
I love my knives, so for me this is just for quick and dirty fine chopping.
Super easy to clean the bowl and blade. Dishwasher safe. The only part that is a bit of a bother is the top/motor portion. Food will get on the underside when processing, as this functions as the lid, so you have to thoroughly wipe it clean. I think I would prefer a lid that can be removed and cleaned. That is the only downside imo. But otherwise, a handy little unit.
Cleaning - incredibly easy! The bottom parts are dishwasher safe. The top part you can take a paper towel with some soap or a sponge to and clean it very easily and I am one of those people often lovingly referred to as a "germaphobe".
The outlet thing - I actually fill it up and stand near an outlet next to my fridge because it is so much more convenient. I find myself cooking more because I bought it! I dropped it last time I used it so next paycheck I will be buying another one!! It's plastic so don't drop it. I cracked the plastic bottom when I dropped it. I am still giving it 5 stars because I'm an idiot and it doesn't deserve to drop a star for stupidity on the user end. :-)
