This was a great replacement for our older chopper and it does so much more. We still need a good slicer for our big pieces of meat but for smaller orders it is just fine. Now for all the other things that this does it does very well. Now it is fun to slice and dice all the veggies for the soups, casseroles and whatever. The only bad thing about it is you’re done to quickly. Before we would have a large bowl of things going into whatever we were preparing and would feel like we would never be done. But now it’s like ‘dang that’s it, bummer’. It turns a half hour of prep into maybe 5 minutes. We highly recommend this for anyone that does a lot of chopping and dicing, and prefect french fries every time.
