Lakeland Mini Chopper”
by Mrs byrne
This chopper is very poor quality. The bowl and lid chipped one week after purchase. The bowl is now cracked after frequent use and is now useless as it leaks profusely. I am looking to replace it but will shop elsewhere. A waste of money.

Had this mini helper for 3 years having bought it when recommended by my uncle, and have bought another as a present for a friend recently. Mine has whizzed up baby food, chopped onions, mushrooms, nuts and garam masala and is perfect for small portions of pasta sauce. It's quick to set up provided you line everything up properly and it doesn't sound like it is about to blow up when faced with tougher foods like my last one did. My only niggle is that occasionally the bowl slips when in use and so the safety cut off kicks in.

small but works just fine”
I am shocked by the negative reviews here. Yes it is a very small chopper, but do you expect for £20?! I am pleased with this mini chopper. I make lots of pizza sauces with it. I just put in the canned tomatoes, garlic, basil leaves and it comes out perfect! The onions are chopped just fine as well. I like mine more "mashy" so I just keep the button pressed a little longer. I did also make breadcrumbs and it come's fine as well. The blade seems fine, and it is easy to assemble. It's perfect for someone who doesn't cook too much or have a big kitchen to store bigger appliances.

I have the white version and am going to buy this one for my daughter because I am so impressed. I have had mine for nearly a year and have found it absolutely great. Though it doesn't feel very robust, I've not had any problems with it. It saves me having to mess up the large food processor when only chopping small amounts. I use it several times a week. It is easy to clean and has encouraged me to cook more often!! It easily manages coarse chopping of onions, carrots etc. I was also delighted to be able make a puree of onions, garlic, ginger and lemongrass for a Thai recipe.

This review is for an older version of this product
I am very disappointed with the mini chopper. I have had two in the last year and both have broken in the same place.The plastic piece for the blade fixture has shattered both times, it does not seem to be strong enough. I was chopping onions both times.

Compact food chopper”
by Mrs Christine Pointer
I have had a chopper for a year, use it often and would not like to be without now. Chopping is quickly done and if you do not want mushy food (onions!) don't chop for long. The user controls the chopping time. A bit noisy perhaps.

I use mine all the time”
Oh dear, I find I don't agree with the other reviewers, I've had my mini chopper for six months and I use it all the time. Yes, there's a knack to getting the bowl in place, but quickly mastered I found. I find it's great for blitzing onions, garlic, peppers and all sorts - hiding veg from my kids, always good. It takes up less room in the dishwasher than it's big brother too. All in all - I recommend it!

Very disappointed with this. The bowl and lid are flimsy and not easy to click in place. So much so, I have used my chopper only a handful of times and the bowl is already chipped, thus not being able to click in place.

I bought this (the white version) and found I struggled with the lid too. I used it to chop the peel when making marmalade and now the plastic is scarred and a real mess. Making pesto was also a disaster. Don't buy it!

Sadly I did not read this review before buying and I quite agree. Onions an uneven mess, won't touch the herbs they come out in the same condition as they went in. For me the blade is just not sharp enough. I have a mini SEB chopper and this does the job better but is too small! I also agree that the lid is a devil to get off, especially with damp or sticky hands

This chopper is not compact; it is micro. The first one I received had a totally blunt blade. It's replacement was the same. I was told to try it; so I did. But I couldn't get the bowl assembly on far enough to be able to actuate the switch. I then transferred the bowl to the first one I received. It went on easily. But it made half a good quality onion into an uneven mush; not the neatly chopped result illustrated. The bowl was very difficult to remove. DON'T buy.
