DO NOT BUY THE OSTER CHOPPER
on August 19, 2012
I use the 1-1/2 cup Black & Decker Handy Plus chopper. Since it takes me 10-15 minutes to chop veggies each morning, I ordered the Oster 3 cup chopper, hoping to cut down on prep time.
The specs on the Oster chopper are poor. You have to fiddle back and forth repeatedly in order to get the capped cup into the locked position so that the power will engage.
Even though it has one more blade than the Black & Decker unit, it doesn't churn the chopped vegetables as the other unit does. As a result, you end up with very finely chopped veggies at the bottom where the blades are, partially chopped chunks in the middle and totally unchopped pieces above that - all of this occurring with only filling the 3 cup container halfway.
This worthless POS is junk. Buy the B&D unit instead. It's cheaper and it works properly!
Adendum: I gave the Oster away after using it once. I then bought the 6 cup Black& Decker chopper and it works well, just like the B&D 1-1/2 cup chopper.
Happy camper, errr chopper now... :->)
