This handy chopper makes prepping meals and snacks a snap. Simply fill with ingredients, pull the handle a few times, and enjoy. An excellent alternative to bulky, noisy food processors, the Pull Chop features razor-sharp blades that effortlessly chop food with nothing more than a few easy pulls. Six pulls will yield a coarse to medium chop, while twenty or so pulls are sufficient to puree most foods. Perfect for salsas, chutneys, sauces, prepping veggies and more. Includes several tasty recipes.
I bought this chopper after seeing it demonstrated in the store. I love the way it chops onions without getting ""watery"" as in other electronic devices. The amount of pulls controls the size, and onions require fewer pulls. And it is so amazingly ""fast"" and easy. I am very happy with this purchase
I love this gizmo. Chops almost anything you can think of, meats, veggies, nuts, etc. Blades are very sharp and I sliced my finger while washing it prior to first use. Great price. I'm getting one for all the cooks in my family, maybe with a box of band-aids included. Treat yourself to this great chopper. You won't be disappointed.
Bought one about a month ago for myself and husband and love it! Sturdy and great for chopping tomatoes, peppers and onions real small for salsa, guacamole & bruschetta in just three pulls! Wanted to get them chopped small like when you buy pre-made at grocery store in deli section. A real times saver. Bought two more for Xmas gifts for Sister and Mom!
Mine says not to wash cover, just clean off the inside top since water can hurt it. Also instructions say to unscrew top with a coin if water was used to allow mechanism to dry but I had no idea how to do this since nothing looked like you could insert a coin to do so. Please advise what you are doing to clean it. Can it be run under water?
Best Answer:Hi... I actually did not notice the "do not wash" for the cover. However, I just looked at it and there is a location that you can use a nickel ($.05) into the lid. Again, I didn't do it because, honestly, I couldn't find a nickel!! After taking a good look at the lid it does seem that all you need to do to clean it is use a wet paper towel and just wipe it clean...
Absolutely--just not in big batches, otherwise the chop will be uneven. It will chop anything, even nuts. The only thing you should be mindful of is cut portions to be added should be of like size and always stop after 5-6 pulls to check if you want a smaller chop. You have total control regarding size
I am thinking of buying it for my mother but she has weakness of hand muscles. I am wondering how much strength is needed to operate this? Thank you.

Best Answer:I am not sure. I think the amount you put into the shredder would be critical. I used it yesterday to chop some dates and found that if I put in a small amount, I could easily pull the cord and chop it easily. I have an issue with my arm strength right now and it is difficult to pull out the cord if the chopper is too full. Dates are hard to chop anyway because they are so sticky. The chopper is a good one and works very well. I would give it a try.
Very little strength! I bought it for myself just for the small dicing it produces. When I discovered how easy to use it is and pulling takes little effort, I bought two more for my sister who is getting arthritis as well as my mother who is in her mid 80s and still loves to cook, but has difficulty at times. This is a great product!
This is a great little device. It's my "go to" for quick chopping. Because it is a manual device it does require an element of hand/arm strength to use. You need to firmly hold it with one hand while ripping the handle with the other hand. We joke that you get a workout while cooking. Anyone with an arthritis like weakness may find it too challenging.
It takes moderate strength but less than chopping with a knife. If in a store, take it out of the box and try. The biggest issue I found is you need to keep a firm hand on the base or it flies across the table. Also, if you do not put too much in the container it is easier to pull.
Hardly any strength, I let my little grandchildren help with cooking and they have no trouble. After I purchased mine, I was so pleased that I purchased 3 for my daughter-in-laws and plan to buy 3 more for Christmas presents. I think you and your mother will be very satisfied.
This is an awesome little tool that is easy to operate and really does a good job chopping ingredients up. I loved it until both my husband and I separately cut our fingers washing the very sharp blade. I have gone back to using my knife most of the time now.
