How we tested
To give readers a detailed insight of this ‘hammer’ chopper, we chopped several veggies like carrots, chillies, coriander, ginger, spring onions, among others to test the performance and efficiency.
Before beginning the review process, we let the electric chopper charge for a little over 30 minutes. There is no indication that denotes ‘charging’, ‘fully charged’, or ‘low battery’. Before we could finish chopping two of the ingredients, the battery ran out and we had to pause the review, recharge the chopper.
In regards to the design and construction, this gets a thumbs up. It is a sturdy chopper with a fairly comfortable grip. Even the space from the button to the handle has been well thought of. The charger port has a flap rubber cover to enhance safety.
As mentioned above, we tested ingredients like carrots, ginger, and coriander. Due to the massive amount of positive experiences with green chillies and spring onion online, we added these two to the list as well.
With carrots, we had a mixed experience. These worked well in the slicer but there were quite some large pieces that seemed to get stuck between blades. As for the chopper attachment, this was a big thumbs down.
Coriander was a no-show with the slicer attachment. But when it came to the chopper attachment, it took approximately 30 seconds for a fine chop that could be used as a garnish on curries.
We had a completely opposite experience with ginger. Here, the chopper attachment was a flop. In the slicer attachment, we got some thin slices but the pieces were flying out of jar. To fix this, we tried using the plastic insert which slowed down the motion of the slicer, thus bringing down the overall convenience.
Next, we had green chillies. We tested these with the slicer attachment. There were some longer, diagonal cuts, and other smaller chops. This was relatively better than other ingredients, but still not uniform.
Our experience with spring onions was BLEAK. Sure, the stem and the bulb were chopped but it was uneven, rough, and not really ideal for usage. When using it for the slicer attachment, there was only the juice of onions and stems getting collected in the jar below.
Cleaning the device was almost effortless. We’d advice to ALWAYS let the parts dry before storing them.
To sum it up, the blades are sharp but when it comes to movement, they don’t run fast enough. Medium to large-sized pieces of the veggies were constantly getting stuck between blades. And whatever the end result was, was not uniform.
The whole point of this chopper being convenient and helping reduce time and effort was invalidated.
- Unique product
- Well designed
- Sharp blades
- Below average performance
- Takes up more time than saving
