Mini choppers come in all shapes and sizes. Some are essentially small food
processors, but for small chopping or slicing jobs I prefer to use my
chef's knife. Mini choppers are perfect for small blending jobs and can keep
you from having to haul out the Cuisinart or blender.
The mini chopper that I have was included with my stick
blender and most manufacturers include a small chopper as part of a kit. This may cost an extra $10.00 or so but it is definitely worth having.
Dr. Gourmet Recommends:
Someone gave me one of these Black and
Decker mini choppers as a holiday gift
one year. I used it until it burned up.
I can't say that I would purchase another
one unless you plan to chop a lot of onions.
I think that the better alternative would
be to buy the Braun
stick blender and use
the mini chopper attachment that comes
with it. This is so much more practical
and I can't find much difference between
I have had a chance to use the Cuisinart
mini-prep processor and, again, I couldn't
justify spending the money. For small jobs
the Braun will more than do the job and
for big ones I haul out my full size Cuisinart
