Summary: I bought this primarily for chopping small amounts of garlic after buying (and throwing away) a Proctor Silex mini food chopper. The KitchenAid was recommended by Cook's Country/America's Test Kitchen. It was worth every penny. It chopped up 5 cloves of garlic beautifully and cleaned up quickly. Everything has to be locked completely and correctly in place or it won't run, but that's not a bad thing.
This is the most useful small appliance I have in my kitchen -- love it!

Summary: This is my second one so that tells you I love it. I have had my first one for over 3 years and use it almost every day so it stays on the counter. I bought some new dishes and have changed my kitchen decor that includes red so I have switched slowly to all red appliances. The blade is very sharp as I found out the first time I washed it.
One of the most handy items I have ordered on ebay

Summary: I love the ease of use and I LOVE that it matches my other Kitchen Aid stuff. I watched info commercial and wondered if it wold be as nice as on tv. I checked price on ebay it was better than on tv and ordered it that day. I have used it many times and love it. Good buy and product.
