vegetable chopper Buyer’s Guide

If you keep the before points in mind, you can easily go out to the market and buy vegetable chopper, right? No!

Manual Food Choppers.

If you love traveling, camping or any outdoor activities, using a manual food chopper or also called spring-loaded choppers is the great choice for you. It comes with convenient use for chopping and slicing your favorite fruits and vegetables mainly because it doesn’t use power to work. However, it will take you a lot of time and effort to finish any chopping and slicing process.

Electric Food Choppers.

Electric food choppers can only work with electricity.They offer more capacity than the manual type, as well as it saves a lot of time and effort that why some chefs suggested using electric food chopper for convenient and fast kitchen works like juicing, grinding, grating as well as blending.

Coffee Grinders. Coffee grinders should be only used for well, grinding coffee. This will allow the taste and flavor of the coffee bean to improve.

Vegetable and Meat Grinders. Vegetables or meat grinders are very essential for grinding hard vegetables as well as meats and transform them into the fine coarse result.

So you know the essential tips and tricks on purchasing a great food processing, but maybe you’re wondering “how should I use this?” Here’s how.

It doesn’t give a paste-like result.

WEBINARS Mandolin Chopper has it all, thanks to its in Multi-purpose Vegetable Food preparation system. It also crafted without BPA, PVC, and Phthalate materials. Using this you don’t have to worry now about any mess, odor or crying over onions.Just chop the onions in half and place it to the metal blades, close the lid and viola, finely chopped vegetables and fruits are now stored in the container.

Number of Blades

A product with several options for blades means your vegetable chopper can replace many of the tools in your kitchen, saving you cabinet space and streamlining your prep.

Many manual choppers come with a variety of blades, including small and large dice, as well as slicing and shredding. Similarly, some electric models come with more than one chopping option, allowing for coarse chops for chunky salsas and soups, to fine minces for onions and garlic.

As you’re considering the right chopper for you, think about the options you need and the environment you’re working in. Are you looking to stock your RV, which has limited kitchen and counter space? Do you just need a single tool that relieves you from the monotony of dicing carrot after carrot? These requirements will help lead you to the tool that is as simple or as customizable as you need.

Container Volume

Manual and electric vegetable choppers usually use a bowl or container that catches the chopped food, and can also function as storage. If you’re just cooking for one or two, a small container will get the job done (and won’t take up unnecessary space), while those cooking for crowds or doing weekly meal preps will want to opt for a larger capacity.

If your prep style varies from day to day, consider a model that doesn’t rely on a container or bowl, and allows you to put a container of your choosing to catch the chopped veggies.

Bisphenol-A, or BPA, is a chemical added to plastics to harden them and give them shape.

If you are someone avoiding BPA, look for products that are labeled “BPA-free.” At the very least, you can look for choppers that do contain BPA but use BPA-free plastics for the areas that come into contact with food. You can get as strict or lenient with this as you feel comfortable with.

What We Disliked

The vegetable chopper from Progressive features an ergonomic design that allows cooks to chop perfect vegetables with a one-handed press of the pusher lid. With that single motion, food slides through the sharp stainless steel blades and is collected in the container base, which can function as a measuring cup and a storage container.

At the top of our price range for manual vegetable choppers, this model may cost more than some home cooks are willing to spend on such a tool. However, the product has overwhelmingly positive reviews, and does prove to be convenient – no mess on your cutting board, a considerable decrease in prep time, and less chance of injury to hands and fingers are all benefits of this product.

The Progressive Vegetable Chopper is BPA-free and dishwasher safe, making it a healthy and easy tool to have in your kitchen. However, some reviewers note that the blades are not strong enough considering the price, and struggle with hard foods.

FUNCTION

This will determine how your vegetable chopping machine will administer its chopping force. There are two different functioning methods, manual and electric. Manual vegetable chopping machines are most effective for chopping nuts, slicing and dicing fruits and vegetables, mincing, and julienning. Electric vegetable choppers are much faster and can handle larger amounts of food at once. Because of the increased speed and application of the electric chopper, these machines are able to achieve cuts from dicing to pureeing.

CUTTING

What’s better than having one cutting option for a vegetable chopper? Having multiple! Depending on how cuts are applied and the construction of the appliance, some vegetable choppers will have different cutting options for your food prep needs. These can range from your standard chopping to pureeing, julienning, and dicing. Understanding the kinds of cuts your chopper can provide will be a huge determining factor in choosing which appliance is perfect for you.

Vegetable choppers come in all different shapes and sizes. Some fit right in the palm of your hand and others go along-side your other counter top kitchen appliances. Smaller vegetable choppers can be easier to handle but may sacrifice quantity of prepared food, while larger choppers can handle larger quantities of food at once and offer more of a variety of cuts. We chose choppers that were the perfect size for at-home chefs to easily use, clean, and store regularly.

STORAGE OPTION

So now that you’ve gotten the hang of your vegetable chopper, we know you’re probably going to get a little chop-happy. That’s why some vegetable choppers come with an extra storage option for your leftover vegetables. This can be particularly useful saving you that last step of pulling out the cling wrap, plastic bags, or tupperware to store extras.

Optional lid

This little handy chopper lives up to its name; it truly is a Ninja! The sleek matte black exterior and smooth ergonomic hand-held design is BPA free and allows chopping almost any vegetable fast and efficient. The Ninja Express Chop is constructed out of simple parts so you don’t have to worry about trying to put together a jigsaw puzzle to mince your garlic. Don’t let its small stature fool you! This chopper has a whopping 3-cup capacity with measuring lines, so you don’t have to break up the separate measuring cups when prepping your ingredients.

What makes this little Ninja stand out from its competitors is that it applies 200 watts of power for every pulse, causing the tiered blades to gyrate and astounding speeds. This movement allows your to chop, dice, mince, blend, and puree depending on how many times pulses are enforced, allowing you to achieve these complex cuts with the push of a button.

The Ninja Express Chop also has a no-slip grip base so the whole device stays steady while applying the powerful chops. We got a little excited using this machine and made a little bit too much salsa for one sitting. It comes with an extra storage lid making clean up a walk in the park just by placing it over the chop base and into the fridge, while the blades went into the dishwasher.

Blade Set

Everybody know’s the phrase, “Size matters,” but is it really true? In this case, I’d say, hell yeah! Except we’re not really looking for something big, we want something handy and easy to put away (that’s right). KitchenAid has done it yet again with a fantastic kitchen appliance that is not only effective, but also fits in any size cooking area.

Running on different speeds, this chopper makes it easy to manage the size of cuts you want to apply. You can do everything from dicing tomatoes and other vegetables to grinding nuts or making crust for pies. The two stacked blade technology works at an angle so the most surface area of the vegetables are sliced. Plus, all the dirty parts fit conveniently into  the top shelf of your dishwasher, so you don’t have to spend extra time scrubbing away.

In the end, this is a great chopper for any household. It’s easy to use with a push of a button, and can chop pretty much any kind of food item. We definitely recommend this product because of its affordability and it’s easy-to-use functionality.

A great tool for mincing and chopping onion, garlic, shallots, and nuts. OXO Good Grips Mini Chopper features knob that can be pressed for even chopping and easy storage. This chopper also features removable blade cartridge; thus it is easy to clean. Interestingly, it is selling at a very cheap price; thus, ordering one now to protect your fingers from cuts.

Prepworks from Progressive International is an ideal one handed food chopper. From chopping nuts, onions, fruits to chocolate and cheese, this compact chopper can do it all. Moreover, it features built-in side blade which reduces the need for precutting. This package also comes with cleaning tools and storage box. With this food chopper, you do not have to use cutting board and knives which are dangerous anymore.

Pull Quote

If your current machine’s motor base is so lightweight that the appliance stutters across the counter when in use, you should consider upgrading to model with a heavier build.

For processing small batches of ingredients, you might want to consider getting a mini food processor—even if you have a full-size version. A mini model will process smaller quantities more efficiently, and its diminutive size means it’s easier to move around a counter, store, and clean.

If you have an older machine that still works well, stick with it. But if your current machine’s motor base is so lightweight that the appliance stutters across the counter when in use, you should consider upgrading to model with a heavier build. And if your processor is 1cups or smaller but you cook for more than two people, you might want to switch to a model with a larger bowl for blending wet ingredients or making bigger batches of shredded veggies or grated cheese.

How we picked and tested

After testing food processors over the past four years, we still think the Cuisinart Custom 14-Cup (pictured fourth from the left) is the best for most people.

At its most basic, a food processor consists of a work bowl that sits on a motorized drive shaft. The bowl’s lid has a feed tube for inserting food to be chopped, diced, sliced, ground, or even kneaded (in the case of dough). Most food processors come with S-shaped blades and various disks for grating and slicing, but a host of other attachments—such as julienne disks and citrus juicers—are also available.

Flaws but not dealbreakers

We read a few reviews that dislike how the Cuisinart Custom’s lid locks with the feed tube in the back rather in the front (standard for most models). However, we think it’s actually easier to see the ingredients in the bowl when the feed tube is positioned in the back of the lid.

The Cuisinart Custom’s shredding disk isn’t adjustable like Breville Sous Chef’s, which has multiple settings similar to a mandoline. That said, you can still buy additional slicing disks through Cuisinart. The included slicing disk makes approximately five-millimeter slices, which is fine for most tasks, but you’d probably want the mm slicing disk for making homemade potato chips.

The only task the Cuisinart Custom didn’t excel at was chopping nuts. Most were evenly chopped, but there were a handful of nuts that remained in large pieces. But since the Cuisinart Custom mastered every other task, we don’t think this is a dealbreaker.

Long-term test notes

After four years of long-term testing, we’ve consistently liked using the Cuisinart Custom. We’ve made slaws, grated cheese, blended dips, and kneaded pizza dough in it, and it has worked well. The 14-cup bowl doesn’t leak, and the controls are exactly what you need.

The bowl has scratched a bit (because we’ve stored the sharp blades inside the bowl). We’ve also noticed on other Cuisinart models that the plastic on the S-blade attachment discolors slightly with prolonged use. However, we haven’t tested the Cuisinart Custom long enough for this to happen. Overall, we still really like using this machine.

We were impressed by the KitchenAid 3.Mini Food Processor, which proved to be a workhorse in our tests.

KitchenAid 3.Cup Mini Food Processor

The KitchenAid produced more even textures than the other mini processors we tested and did so quickly. It chopped onions better than our former pick, the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus. (We recommend cutting a whole onion into eighths prior to pulsing for best results.) It also chopped a quartered tomato very evenly; we had to cut a tomato into smaller pieces to get the same results using the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus. The KitchenAid also cleanly cut parsley, whereas the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus tore it, causing it to oxidize faster.

Both the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus and the KitchenAid Mini Food Processor made perfect batches of mayonnaise. However, the KitchenAid excelled at dicing carrots while the Cuisinart struggled to chop a tough jumbo carrot and took nearly three times as long. The residual carrot juice also dyed the white plastic parts on the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus and discolored the bowl. Neither model excelled at chopping whole almonds, however; we think full-sized processors are best for this task.

The Mini Food Processor looks almost identical to a full-size processor, except that it has a knob that can be adjusted for chopping and pureeing. The chop setting moves the blade at a slower rpm, while the puree button operates at a faster rpm.

And, of course, the KitchenAid 3.Mini Processor is quite a bit smaller and easier to move around than bigger machines. Most mini choppers don’t have hefty bases like a full-size processor, and the KitchenAid is no exception. However, at just under pounds, it has a slightly heavier base compared to our previous pick, the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus. We didn’t notice any straining or stuttering of the KitchenAid 3.Mini Food Processor’s 240-watt motor, even when chopping a tough jumbo carrot. Since you won’t use it for heavy tasks such as making bread dough, we don’t think there’s much risk of burning out the motor.

The KitchenAid 3.Mini Food Processor excels at emulsifications. In fact, of all the food processors, blenders, and immersion blenders we’ve tested for various guides, we found making mayo easiest in a mini food processor. That’s because its lid has a small indent to hold oil and a small hole that allows the oil to pour directly onto the blades so you have a consistent, measured stream. With this method, the mayonnaise comes together without your having to control the flow of oil.

Making mayonnaise in the KitchenAid 3.5-Cup Mini Food Processor is exceptionally easy due to a small well and hole in the lid for adding oil.

Our testers preferred the handle on the bowl of the KitchenAid 3.Cup Mini Processor. Other mini models, such as those sold by KitchenAid and Farberware, lack this feature. We struggled to remove the bowl on models that didn’t have a handle, especially when working with greasy hands. We also love the push-button activation on the KitchenAid, where the lid meets the handle. We found it easier to operate than holding down buttons on the base of the Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus. The plastic ring around the lid can also be removed for easy cleaning.

Our testers liked the placement of the push-button activation on the KitchenAid 3.5-Cup Mini Food Processor where the lid meets the handle.

The KitchenAid 3.Mini Food Processor comes with a one-year warranty. If you experience problems under normal household use, contact KitchenAid for support.

The Breville Sous Chef performed best overall in our tests, but it’s far larger and has more attachments than most people need.

Full-size food processors

The Breville BFP660SIL Sous Chef 1Food Processor did well in our tests, but it didn’t outperform the 16-cup Breville Sous Chef or our top pick, the Cuisinart Custom. In our tests, the Breville BFP660SIL Sous Chef wasn’t able to chop tomatoes or almonds as evenly as the 16-cup Breville Sous Chef. Its smaller 12-cup capacity was also more limiting than the Cuisinart Custom’s 14-cup bowl.

We were not impressed with the Magimix by Robot-Coupe 14-Cup Food Processor. In our tests, it wasn’t able to produce as even a chop as the Breville Sous Chef or Cuisinart Custom. The feed tube on the Magimix is very wide, so thin items like carrots fall to the side and produce an uneven grate. The rounded lid also creates a wide gap around the perimeter of the slicing blade, which allows large pieces of food to slip through into the bowl. The machine also seized up while preparing pizza dough and was noisier than other models we tested.

The Cuisinart FP-13DGM Elemental 1Cup Food Processor and Dicing Kit was not able to chop as evenly as our picks. Our testers were impressed with the dicing kit, which chopped firm vegetables like potatoes and carrots into even cubes. However, since this was the only task it excelled at, we don’t think it’s best for most people. The motor on this model was noisy and the base is very lightweight.

We decided not to test the Braun FP3020 12-Cup Food Processor since it’s the same price as our top pick with a smaller capacity. We can’t justify paying more for a smaller machine. The Braun FP3020 is also only 600 watts versus the 720 watts of our main pick.

In our tests, the Cuisinart Prep 1Plus didn’t mix big batches of dough as well as the Cuisinart Custom due to its smaller bowl. It also struggled to grind bread crumbs and leaked around the shank at the center of the bowl when processing wet ingredients.

The KitchenAid 13-Cup ExactSlice was our least favorite of the large processors. The base shook and the motor eventually seized when processing pizza dough.

The Cuisinart Elite FP-12DCN performed well in our tests, but it comes with a gasket on the lid that frequently trapped flour and sticky ingredients. Our testers also preferred the Cuisinart Custom Pro’s 14-cup capacity over the Elite’s 12-cup capacity.

In our tests, we found that a 14-cup capacity food processor bowl is ideal for most people. For this reason, and based on other reviews on the web, we were able to rule out many models from Cuisinart, Breville, Braun, Hamilton Beach, Magimix, Procter Silex, KitchenAid, Oster, and Black+Decker with bowls under 1cups.

Additionally, we looked into blender/food processor hybrids by Cuisinart, De’Longhi, and Ninja. We like the idea that you could get two machines in one, but according to reviews, they don’t stack up to our top picks in food-processing ability alone.

Mini food processors

The Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus was our former mini chopper pick. We still think it’s a powerful machine, considering its diminutive size, but it wasn’t able to chop as evenly as the KitchenAid 3.Cup Mini Food Processor. In our tests, it moved across the counter as it struggled to chop a tough jumbo carrot. It also tore the parsley we chopped, whereas the KitchenAid produced a clean, even cut.

The Farberware 3-Cup Mini Chopper lacks a handle on the bowl, which made it difficult to remove from the base, especially when working with greasy hands. Also, this chopper left behind an entire piece of onion after pulsing and produced the most unevenly chopped almonds out of all the models we tested. And it doesn’t have holes in the lid for making mayo.

Our testers found the base of the VonShef Food Processor to be too large for a mini-chopper. However, the biggest problem with this processor is the wide gap between the top of the slicing/grating disk and the bottom of the feed tube, which caused onions and cheese to roll around and create irregular slices. Also, this model couldn’t make mayo; the gap between the blade and the bowl was too large to create an effective emulsion.

Effective Power Motor

It has a 70-watt motor for fast mincing and grinding and all the pieces come apart for easy cleaning; it is also dishwasher safe.

The single blade limits chopping choices (no fancy cuts) and you do have to cut large pieces before putting them in, but overall it does a good job for anyone who wants finely chopped and minced foods quickly.

If you want to get the best value for your money then this is the model for you, thanks to its great pricing and multi-purpose design.

Pull-Cord Design

It creates smooth, tasty, hummus, pesto, guacamole and other sauces. It also works great for making crushed ice (ideal for a summer party).

All the pieces can be cleaned on the top rack of the dishwasher and since it works by hand you can take it with you if friends and family are having a party.

OXO Good Grips Chopper

This is the most inexpensive of the choppers, but it’s worth it thanks to its high-quality design and ease of use. With a stainless-steel bald that promotes even chopping, this unit has a one-push design that feels effortless.

Shaped like a bullet, you simply place nuts, fruits or vegetables inside, then push down for instant chopping. The blade is located in the top part of the unit, so you can disconnect the bottom bowl and use it as a food storage container.

There is even a lid for it, so you can take what you chop to work, the park, or anywhere else. Dishwasher safe, this unit works well in any home, dorm room or for anyone who is on the go.

Chopped Veggie Salad

This is a basic recipe everyone should have. You can use fruits or vegetables in the recipe, which works great all-year round.

Ingredients: whatever you have in your fridge. Take a mix of different vegetables, like broccoli, carrots, cauliflower and cucumbers, put them in the chopper and chop to the desired size.

Q & A

A. Not really. Most work easily with a little push, although some do require more arm action, so if you have arthritis you may want a pull-cord or electric model.

Chop Magic Chopper

Question: What comes in sixteen different colors and can be operated with one finger? This chopper right here.

This KitchenAid KFC3511 3-cup beauty performs similarly to a blender with two different settings, chop, and puree. If you are vegan and your main needs are smoothies and finely minced items, then this is a great choice. As a bonus, it’s pretty enough to leave on the counter as a stylish accessory.

If you love to have your appliances match the aesthetic of your kitchen and you spend hours of time trying to find the perfect shade for every item, this is by far the most colorful of all of the food processor choices we have for you today.

Pampered Chef Cutting Edge Chopper

The Pampered Chef Chopper has long been known for bringing innovative culinary ideas to homes throughout the country. This food chopper is one of their signature patented items, and it is one of the world’s bestselling manual home food choppers. The device is simple; it looks a lot like a spring-loaded plunger.

The zigzag-shaped blade is deployed when you press down on the handle. When it lifts, the blade rotates slightly so that it cuts in a different location the next time you push it down. These tools are simple, long-lasting, cleverly designed, and easy to clean. While their price goes into the range of some low-end motorized choppers, devotees claim that this is well worth it.

Cuisinart CHCollection Chopper Grinder

This Cuisinart CH-4 4-cup chopper/grinder is simple to use and great for a kitchen of any size. It works similar to a food processor but offers a smaller, more portable option that is perfect for limited storage and tiny kitchens. Its durable 4-cup work bowl offers plenty of room to make sauces, baby foods, pizza toppings, and more.

The unit has a very cool auto-reversing SmartPower blade, a patented design that offers a sharp edge designed for chopping and pureeing softer food items and a blunt, more durable edge that is designed for grinding up hard things like nuts and spices.

Its BladeLock system is a great safety feature for kids. It keeps the blade securely in place during both use and pouring. A touchpad control panel lets you choose between “chop” and “grind” options. The cup can be attached and removed by way of an easy-grip handle, and all of the parts are dishwasher-safe to simplify cleanup. The chopper comes with a spatula and recipe book. There is a limited 18-month warranty on this chopper.

How We Tested

All information is based on hundreds of online internet reviews. We looked at the most common accolades and complaints and used them to present a composite view of the product. While one tested sample can share some information, it cannot tell you what may happen in a “bad batch” or how often that occurs.

This is why we prefer to look at overall satisfaction and common complaints. This also gives us an idea of how well the tool will perform over a series of different kinds of tasks.

Chopper Slicer

Chopper slicers are a favorite choice of professional chefs as they offer uniform cutting and a simple, sharp device. They can work like a french fry cutter where you push the food directly down over a shaped hole or like a mandoline that carries your food up and down over extremely sharp blades.

Chopper slicers are graded by their materials (professional pieces tend to be all metal for durability, strength, and ease of cleaning while home versions may have some plastic for lightness and aesthetics). Some will have interchangeable blades to allow you to choose from a number of different shapes and vegetables, while others, like a french fry press, will do one thing quickly and efficiently.

The professional versions tend to be bigger and sharper and will require more maintenance to keep the blade sharp. But if you cook a lot and treat it well, it will reward you with a very long lifespan.

Manual Chopper

Manual choppers work similarly to food processors but they don’t require electricity to function. They may be powered by a geared motor that works by turning a crank, by a pull-string, or by a spring-loaded mechanism.

All of these styles offer some mechanical advantage compared to a knife. This can make it easier to chop dense vegetables like ginger or squash or to grind items like cheese quickly and easily.

Manual choppers are often fully dishwasher-safe, due to the fact that there are no electrical components that would be at risk from the water. It is best to get them in stainless steel, as they are less likely to rust from regular use.

Vintage Chopper

The rocking knife: This item has a curved blade and may have one or two handles. It often had a decorative heart or another cutout.

Graters: These were often rough pieces of metal that were punctured (at first) by hand.

Hand-crank graters: The hand-crank meat grinder was invented in the 18th century in Germany. It was quickly adapted for vegetables as well.

Electric food processors: This was invented right around WWII.

Keep in mind that older choppers are not made of stainless steel and they will require regular sharpening and oiling to keep them sharp and rust-free. If you’re not sure how to do this, visit a local kitchen store and they can coach you on how to properly care for this and any other knives that you might have.

This includes

Braun MQ77Multiquick Hand Blender was portable, small, easy to store, easy to clean, versatile in the number of chop types available, high customer satisfaction percentage, and more. While the cost was more than many other choices, the quality of the manufacturer, power of the motor, and the number of included accessories (a whopping 1with six completely different chopping and mixing functions!) all justify the price.

Number Of Blades or Speed

A manual vegetable chopper may offer more than one blade to perform several cuts, such as dices, shreds, and squares. More blades mean more versatility. Of course, you also need to consider the ease of changing blades. You want something that allows you to change blades easily and fast.

For electric models, the chopping option may vary from coarse to fine, depending on the number of pulse speeds. For example, Hamilton Beach 72600 offer two pulse speeds to provide accurate control.

Durable Stainless Steel Blades

Whether you choose a manual or electronic vegetable chopper, make sure that you look for stainless steel blades. According to metallurgical engineer Michael L. Free, stainless steel doesn’t rust due to the interaction of its elements to oxygen. Such interaction creates a stable film that prevents corrosion.

Versatile Functions

To get the best value for your money, look for vegetable choppers that can chop all sorts of vegetables and other food. Some of the most versatile models not only chops vegetables, but they can also grate cheese and even mince nuts. The more versatile the product, the better.

Brieftons Manual Food Chopper

The Brieftons Manual Food Chopper is a powerful handheld chopper that can mince, puree, and blend vegetables.

Both the plastic bowl and stainless steel blade are dishwasher safe for ease of cleaning. The 3-cup plastic bowl is BPA-free and the blades are all hidden during use for safety.

Basic, cheaper hand blenders will only include the chopping blade while more advanced models may come with attachments for tasks such as whisking, chopping and mashing.

Ideal for: blending soup, sauces, smoothies and baby food. Whisk attachment can be used for whipping cream and beating egg while chopper blades are useful for shredding herbs, garlic, vegetables and nuts. Smaller than food processors and greater control when blending.

Jug blender and smoothie maker

Some blenders have a larger capacity, around 1.5-litres, making them an ideal choice for families. Personal blenders feature a smaller blending jug for one or two portions, which can also be used as a drinking cup when you’re on-the-go. These blenders may also have the ability to blend seeds, nuts and stalks as well as crushing ice.

Prices differ depending on power, speed and material and typically range from £20-£300. Plastic jugs are lighter for lifting and storing away, whilst glass jugs are heavier, more solid and less likely to get scratched. Blenders and smoothie makers take up less room than food processors and are generally easy to store away, if you don’t want to keep it on show.
