Braun MR430HC/AC Multiquick Deluxe Hand Blender & Chopper

This multipurpose tool created a stir in the kitchen when it came out, as the food processor did a generation earlier. In order to blend, whip, and chop smaller amounts of ingredients, it's no longer necessary to wrestle with bulky appliances. Immerse the 7-1/2-inch blender shaft, with its little blade on the end, into a pot where vegetables have been simmering, press the switch, and in seconds a creamy soup appears--with no need to dump everything into a big blender. Blend sauces and baby foods in their cooking pots, too. Blend a milk shake or juice drink right in its drinking container, or in the 2-1/2-cup beaker included in this set. Whipping cream and egg whites is just as convenient: a 5-inch whisk attaches to the motor when the blender is removed. For chopping nuts, herbs, garlic, or onions, there's a 2-cup chopper bowl with a special blade. The motor with the attached blender shaft can be mounted on a wall (mount included). Everything but the motor and the chopper-bowl top (both should be wiped with a damp cloth) can go into the dishwasher. This tool is more than handy, it's a revolution. The instruction sheet, unfortunately, is harder to comprehend than the tool is to use. --Fred Brack

Black & Decker EHC650 Ergo 3-Cup Food Chopper

This electric food chopper accomplishes a food processor's principal function of chopping and mincing without having to haul out the big machine. It's just 8 inches high and 4-3/4 inches in diameter, and its 3-cup bowl is ample for many chores in a family household and most chores in a one or two-person household. At 150 watts, the motor is powerful enough to chop or mince vegetables, fruits, herbs, cheese, nuts, chocolate, cooked meats, and bread. The power head has a soft grip for easy one-handed use. The rugged, plastic bowl; its slip-resistant base, which doubles as the bowl's lid for storing food; and the stainless-steel blade are all dishwasher-safe. --Fred Brack

KitchenAid KFC3100WH Chef Series Food Chopper, White

With a 3-cup work bowl and 240 watts of power, this chopper is ideal for small jobs and for making sauces, frostings, and dressings. The stainless-steel blade's reverse spiral action pulls food down, minimizing scraping and producing uniform chopped meat, nuts, cheese, vegetables, herbs--all the many foods for which the chopper is intended. For adding ingredients while the chopper is running, the lid has two compartments, one for dry items and the other for wet. For precise control, the chopper's electronic pulse pad responds instantaneously. The heavy power base provides stability and is seamless, making cleanup a simple matter of wiping the base and placing all the parts in the dishwasher. The chopper stands just 9-1/2 inches high and has cord storage inside the base. A stiff spatula is included. Should the chopper fail during its first year, KitchenAid's total replacement warranty guarantees delivery of another machine. --Fred Brack

VillaWare V5265-05 Power Grinder

There's more to ground meat than just meat loaf (although it does taste fabulous when you start with a pound of chuck). With this power grinder from Villaware, you'll create any type of sausage you can imagine--basil and sun-dried tomato, apple and sage chicken, or even garlic and Parmesan. It also grinds fruits, veggies, cheeses, and nuts. Constructed with a die-cast metal head and a spiral, oversize bearing drive, the power grinder is of professional quality and works quickly and thoroughly. In addition, for those who want to make fresh, preservative-free baby food, the power grinder is ideal. --Dana Van Nest

Cuisinart MM-2M Mini Mate Chopper / Grinder

The Mini-Mate makes quick work of small kitchen prep jobs that might otherwise require difficult and messy chopping, grinding, and grating: nuts, nutmeg, and cinnamon sticks, peppercorns and seeds, garlic and anchovies, even chocolate and citrus peel. With a patented reversible blade for sharp or blunt processing, and two speeds of operation, it is well equipped to handle a variety of jobs.

Though it has a high-speed motor and durable stainless-steel motor shaft, keep in mind that the Mini-Mate is designed for small amounts of food: 2 tablespoons is the maximum recommended for one batch, and food pieces should be no larger than 1/2 inch. Purchase it to complement, not replace, a larger, full-function food processor. An instruction book that accompanies the processor details how to process many common foods and troubleshoot problems so you know how to best use and care for your Mini Mate.

Cleanup and completion of small jobs is quicker and more efficient because of the small size, though the many parts of the Mini Mate require disassembly, careful cleaning, and reassembly, which does add to total cleaning time. If you don't have the time or the patience for smaller detail-oriented prep jobs, Mini Mate is a great kitchen aid. --Emily Wolf

Hamilton Beach 70550RL PrepStar Food Processor with Bonus Chill Lid

With a 350-watt motor and a 7-cup bowl, this inexpensive tool puts a family-size food-processor's versatility and ease into a cook's hands at a bargain price. The processor's S-shaped stainless-steel blade kneads bread dough and chops and minces a variety of foods, from nuts to meat to cheese to vegetables and fruits. The reversible stainless-steel disc blade slices and shreds fruits and vegetables, and, with two speeds to choose from and a pulse control, the processor offers classic flexibility for fine work. Beginners will appreciate the control panel's chart, which lists the appropriate blades and speeds for specific tasks. The processor measures 12-1/2 by 8-1/4 by 7 inches and sits on rubber feet to prevent skidding. The bowl, cover, and blades are dishwasher-safe. --Fred Brack

DeLonghi DCP400 Cucina Electric Food Chopper

Chop onions without tears and cube cheese or fruit in this handy food processor with one-touch operation. Add food to the 4-cup glass bowl, fit on the sturdy plastic splash guard, and insert the power unit with domed top. A push of the palm gives steady processing or allows pulse action. The chopper measures 8-1/2 by 6-1/2 inches, and comes with a rubber nonslip mat and a sealed lid for storing food in the microwave-safe bowl. For protection from the sharp metal blades, the processor will not start until properly assembled. A one-year warranty covers the chopper against defects. --Ann Bieri

J.K. Adams Maple Herb Bowl and Mezzaluna Chopper Set

This aesthetically pleasing herb-chopping bowl is perfectly designed for its function. The slightly scooped bowl holds a handful of fresh herbs while you gently rock the curved mezzaluna ("half-moon") blade to chop them to the desired fineness. The matching curves of bowl and knife work perfectly to turn what can be a tedious task into a pleasing one. The modest size of the bowl (9-1/2 inches square) means that it's easy to pick up to add the herbs to your cooking. Don't be tempted to wash the bowl or blade in the dishwasher: the natural wood and oil finish require careful cleaning by hand with a mild soap. (Other extremes of moisture and temperature should also be avoided.) The bowl can be easily stored on its side, but it's so handsome, you may want to keep it out. --Sherry Smith

MIU France Stainless Steel Food Chopper

This manual mini food chopper is perfect for mincing small quantities of onions, garlic, or herbs quickly and with minimal cleanup. The upper half of the chopper is made of beautiful brushed stainless-steel with a transparent plastic bowl on the lower half for watching the chopping process. Pump the non-skid handle up and down and the zig-zag-shaped blade cuts and then rotates to cut at a different angle during with the following pump for more precise chopping. The bowl easily twists off the chopper for filling and emptying and secures back on with a twist in the opposite direction. A pointed stand on the chopper’s underside props it up so the blade doesn’t touch the tabletop and also assists in scooping stray pieces of vegetable from the lip of the cup. A plastic base keeps the chopper from sliding during use. --Cristina Vaamonde

Zyliss Comfort Food Chopper, Blue

This chopper from Zyliss will make quick work of most small and medium chopping tasks, and, thanks to the unique comfort top, it won't bruise hands if lots of chopping is being done. The chopper stands 10-1/2 inches tall, with a 3-1/2-inch base, and is constructed of sturdy plastic and stainless steel, with a stainless-steel chopping blade. It's easy to use--just place the food in the base container and position the chopper snugly in the base. Then tap the top a few times until food is the desired size. The rustproof, stainless-steel blade rotates automatically after each tap. Since the chopping is contained in the base, the amount of mess is minimal. Also, the 1-cup base container comes with a lid for easy storing of chopped food. For simple cleanup, the sides of the chopper are hinged and the whole thing can go into the dishwasher. --A.J. Rathbun

Zyliss Chopper with Cup

Zyliss, the Swiss maker of quality kitchen accessories, has ingeniously redesigned the chopper with ease of use in mind. Ingredients placed in the clear plastic receptacle at the bottom are chopped by depressing the plunger at the top--the more frequently the plunger is depressed, the finer the food will be chopped. Its stainless-steel blade automatically rotates so that the contents are chopped evenly, while the plastic container can be removed and covered with its own air-tight lid to keep minced ingredients fresh before usage. Clean this kitchen gem immediately after use by simply twisting off the lower part of the device and rinsing the blade under running water. --Pamela Zytnicki

Tupperware Chopper Machine

Because it employs six blades instead of one, this hand-powered machine works much quicker than a single knife blade and makes it unnecessary to bring out a food processor for a small chopping task. Perfect for onions, hard-boiled eggs, cheese, nut, and herbs, the chopper comes with a base to contain food, or it can be used on any cutting surface without the base. Pressing down the machine's knob plunges a wave-shaped stainless-steel blade, and each time the spring-loaded plunger springs back the blade rotates a little so chopping is uniform and thorough. Housed in rugged, transparent plastic, the chopper stands 9 inches high. One of Tupperware's handy food-preparation tools, the chopper is dishwasher-safe and carries a 90-day guarantee against defects. --Fred Brack

Black & Decker FP1400 Quick N' Easy Plus Food Processor

With an 8-cup work bowl and a built-in continuous-flow chute for slicing or shredding foods like cabbage into a separate bowl, this 350-watt food processor is versatile as well as inexpensive. It's great for a small household or an occasional cook who wants the convenience of food processing but doesn't need a big, powerful machine. With its stainless-steel chopping blade and reversible slicing/shredding disc, the processor does everything its more powerful counterparts do: slices, shreds, chops, mixes, and minces. It has two speeds and a pulse control, and all removable parts are dishwasher-safe. To the top of its feed tube, the processor measures 13 inches high, and it's 9 inches wide, including the work bowl's handle, and 16 inches deep, including the continuous-flow chute on top the work bowl. The processor comes with a one-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack

Pedrini Pleasure Mezzaluna Chopper

An Italian cook is never happier than when wielding a mezzaluna. Shaped like a half-moon (hence the name), this heavy, durable kitchen tool rocks though chopping and mincing tasks with speed and precision. Onions, carrots, celery, garlic, parsley--all the aromatics for a proper soffritto--can be quickly made ready for the soup, sauce, or risotto pot. Made in Italy, the 6-1/4-inch-wide mezzaluna has a thick stainless-steel blade to resist corrosion and discoloring and is beveled on both sides to a sharp edge. The handle is thick and soft, providing both comfort and a firm grip. Though it's dishwasher-safe, this tool should be hand washed to preserve the sharp edge. --Fred Brack

Hamilton Beach 72610 Fresh Chop 3-Cup Food Chopper

Here's an electric appliance that provides a food processor's principal function--chopping and mincing--at a bargain price. Add compactness and ease of use to the price, and the sum is a handy, inexpensive tool for one- and two-person households, where efficiency is more important than large-scale, elaborate food preparation. At 135 watts, the motor is powerful enough to chop or mince vegetables, fruits, herbs, cheese, nuts, chocolate, cooked meats, and bread. The tough plastic bowl holds 3 cups and is calibrated in cups, ounces, liters, and milliliters, and the bowl, lid, and stainless-steel blade are dishwasher-safe. This lightweight chopper is only 6-3/4 by 5 by 7 inches and has a hideaway cord to reduce counter clutter. --Fred Brack

Braun MR550MCA Culinary Series Variable Speed Hand Blender and Chopper

This handblender is a wonderfully convenient kitchen tool and will be used often in busy households. As a blender, it inserts into any bowl or pan or can be used with the included mixing beaker to swiftly purée soups or baby foods or blend the perfect cocktail. As a chopper, it minces a handful of parsley in 15 seconds and makes breadcrumbs from bread rolls in 30. Attach the wire whip to make whipped cream or meringues. For so many everyday tasks, this blender is a great choice--all the parts fit together well and work smoothly--and it is easily stored off the counter, on the included wall mount. --Maria Dolan

Cuisinart CSB-55N SmartStick Extendable Shaft Hand Blender & Chopper Grinder

Reach for this versatile tool when a stand blender or full-size food processor is too big or inconvenient for the task at hand. Three distinctions separate this from ordinary hand blenders. First, the blending shaft extends 2 inches--to a total of 8 inches--when needed to reach the bottom of tall containers. Second, a chopper/grinder attachment, with a 5-inch-diameter, 3-inch-deep bowl, functions like a mini food processor, chopping, grinding, and mincing cheese, chocolate, nuts, herbs, vegetables, fruits, and cooked meats and poultry. Third, both the blender and the chopper/grinder have four speeds, adjustable with a thumb flick during operation. Other virtues include a rubber finger grip so your hand doesn't slip when wet; an on/off button on top of the power handle for thumb operation; a dishwasher-safe blending shaft and chopper/grinder bowl; a separate attachment for quickly whipping cream or desserts; a counter stand or wall mount for storage; and a 2-cup, dishwasher- and microwave-safe beaker. Clear instructions and recipes included. --Fred Brack
