Rated 5 out of 5Â by srcgchs So far so good
We have just purchased this so I can't comment on its longevity, but so far we love it. Very easy to use, easy to clean (as so many food choppers aren't), and seems to have a good, strong motor. Particularly like the separate operating buttons to run the motor at different speeds. Also like that the blade "snaps" in, so you can empty the bowl without having to fish through your chopped food for the blade.

Very nice appliance. Appears and feels very rugged. Great looking little workhorse. I don't mind paying a little more for quality like this.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by CadyH Good for making hummus
I read all of the reviews prior to purchasing regarding the problem with mold under the controls. I must admit that the main reason I purchased this make/model was the color. I have used it several times and it does a really good job. Every time I use it, I am careful when washing the top so as to avoid water getting under the controls and causing the mold issue. So far, I have had no problems but I will sometimes choose not to use it because the cleanup can be somewhat time consuming in cleaning the top. It does a great job making hummus and chopping cabbage for slaw, I just wish they had engineered the design a little better. I compared prices and Kohl's had the best price for the same model.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by cookingeveryday123 Disappointing from design to durability
I owned a different brand food chopper for over 20 yrs. When a piece broke on the bowl I had to replace it and chose the Kitchenaid thinking my Kitchenaid stand mixer was such a great product, surely the chopper would be great too. WRONG!!! Where to start....from the design of the bowl which is difficult to line up to the base and easily slips out of wet hands, to the lid which permanently traps food under the start buttons, to the transmission, this is a disappointing appliance. I have owned it for just over a year and I couldn't even chop an onion in it now because the gears are slipping and the blade doesn't turn. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone. Now to find a replacement.....
