I got this as a Christmas gift and have used it for several receipes. Makes great hummus, pesto, tapenade, and I even make my own bread crumbs now. Works well for chopping vegetables, pureeing, etc. The great thing about the mini-chopper is that it is small enough to store under the countertop but large enough to handle a good (4 cups) capacity of food. And it is easy to clean. Highly recommended!
