This chopper has become a staple in my kitchen. I bought it because when I started cooking, I got tired of dicing everything by hand so I use this to dice veggies and grind croutons and almonds when i need them to be in a fine powdery grain to mix with salt, spices, etc.
You just need to be realistic when you use it. It's not a food processor or a blender and it's small. Although, the chopper has measurements of up to 3 cups, I wouldn't advise filling up the chopper all the way to the top because as others have said, the central cylinder is too short and the blades are too small. Overfilling it means the ingredients at the top won't reach the blades and you may have to stop and readjust things to get an even chop. Also because of the size, don't expect to be able to throw an entire onion and come out with perfect dices. If that's what you want to do, get a bigger machine. With this one you do need to cut the food into small pieces (I cut about 2 inch wedges) to get the best results but really, compared to dicing everything yourself, it takes no time at all, just a few seconds.
Other than those minor inconveniences, I love this machine. I would like to have a bigger machine that can handle more but my kitchen is tiny so this is the perfect size, and it's pretty powerful for how little it is. It fits in just right and I use it almost every time I cook. Have never been disappointed.
