Pigeon mini vegetable chopper
Onions chopped in mini chopper

In most of the kitchens, a vegetable chopper is a must have item.

Many times I want my onions chopped very fine, but I can’t chop it as fine as I want with a knife and a chopping board.

We use very finely chopped vegetables in Keema Samosa filling, Salads for kebabs, Omelettes, Bhel, chaat items, and even for filling parathas.

I had seen the same chopper many times in Bigbazar and other malls but I always thought it to be a waste of money like it’s many other plasticky counterparts.

I wanted a vegetable chopper to make healthy stuffed parathas for my toddler because toddlers are very picky about eating vegetables, and somehow I want to sneak in finely chopped veggies in her food.

Finally made this buy on a friends suggestion who is also a toddlers Mum and bought the cheapest vegetable chopper from Amazon and I am so satisfied. It’s my helping hand in the kitchen.

My Experience:

This is my partner in Kitchen, a big helping hand. Best feature is that Even my husband can now chop veggies πŸ˜€

This is the best Onion chopping machine I own. That too, Onion chopping without tears.

Packaging: Comes in a standard box.

Material: Okay Plastic. Stainless steel blades

Capacity: 2 mid sized roughly chopped onions can be chopped finely at a time.

What all can be cut?

I majorly use it to chop broccoli, onions, cucumbers and green chilies. But I am sure fruits and soaked dry fruits can also be chopped.

Can I mince meat? No (small pieces of boneless chicken can be chopped)

Any Precautions:

As per my personal experience, do not pull the handle too far, the string might break I feel.

Do not try to chop very hard or big pieces of vegetables. If required cut coins of “carrots like vegetables”. (See my demo)

Do not chop jaggery or coconut or unsoaked dryfuits like almonds, pistachios or cashews

If chopping tomatoes, make sure the tomatoes are firm and remove the inner seeds and pulp, else it will all be a squishy mess.

My Verdict: I have a very good Food processor from Bajaj and It has so many functions and blades for chopping but I rarely use it. I find it cumbersome to wash a big jar, blades, lid and all.

Instead I prefer this handy mini chopper, It’s a good buy.

Also, I personally feel that when we go for such plastic based choppers, It is better to go for cheap alternatives.

You never know when the plastic lid will break or the small shaft where the blade stands will break or worst the main pulley string breaks or gets stuck.
