Rated 1 out of 5 by Cybermouse Unusable. Returning it under Warranty
I have just taken this out of the cupboard to use for the first time in a month. When I put it away I cleaned it scrupulously because food gets into the motor area. When I opened it up I was greeted with the foulest smell ever. It was coming from the motor housing. Several other reviewers have experienced the fact that food gets lodged in there. As for chopping, if it's anything a bit sticky it clings to the side of the bowl and doesn't get pulled in to the blades. Put water in to help and guess where it goes to? Into the motor casing, which results in the smell I now have.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Student Good for baby food only
The power and size were fair but not for the intended use. it was good for extreme small amounts ( 50 ml) every mixture will leave a print on the motor unit ( which is unreachable with any kind of dambed cloth). After 5 days of light use, I couldn't use it any more. I've tried homos, BBQ marination and it was a really good chopper.
It would be improved by adding a gasket like part just below the motor\ blade joint.
Waiting for any advice by you.

Rated 2 out of 5 by sadie Very difficult to clean
I bought this to make curry pastes and pesto but having only used it twice now, I will be returning it to the shop because it is impossible to clean. This is clearly a design fault. The food gets stuck in the socket on top of the motor and as you cannot get water near the motor it is impossible to clean. I have just spent 15 minutes trying to get it out with a knife!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ianflew Simple gadget with design flaw
Whilst this chops soft vegetables and nuts satisfactorily there is a tendency for food to find its way out of the top aperture to get stuck in the socket of the main housing. This area is difficult to clean and if material finds its way into the gap between this and main housing it is nigh on impossible to clean. Water is not meant to be used on this part of the machine so quite what you do here is beyond me. I am about to look for another product after only a months use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kalle Its ok
This little noisy chopper chops like a trooper. Very good with onions. The proof is how often we use it and its maybe once a week. Knife and chopping board seems to win the end.
Slightly difficult to clean the top part where the blades slots in. I made the mistake to chop to much chicken liver and lots ended up there. The blade and container goes int he dishwasher.
