We’re not talking about full-size food processors this time around but about their little brothers.
Mini choppers are a good idea if you don’t have the necessary room in your kitchen, your budget doesn’t agree with the food processor, and other reasons along those lines. They’ll do a lot of the work for you, and do their best as a replacement in absence of their older brothers. You’ll never get out of a little chopper what you could if you bought a real food processor, but they both have their advantages and disadvantages.
Now this article isn’t going to linger on differences between mini choppers and food processors any more. We all know food processors are a superior choice. They also cost much more and take up a lot more space. So, instead on harping on that for a while, we’re going to start talking about some of the reasons you’ll want a mini chopper in your kitchen.
This is where mini choppers and food processors start to look alike a lot.
The first thing you’ll want to keep in mind is the fact that any kind of electric chopper will save you a ton of time. It’ll do all the tedious cutting, chopping, shredding, and all those kitchen operations you hate for you and it’ll do them way better and way quicker. It’s really a way to up your game in the kitchen, for just a fraction of the cost of your average food processor. Time is the most valuable resource we have at our disposal, so saving it in chunks day after day sounds like a plan to me!
I’ve already mentioned this in the previous point, but here it is again. These choppers will do the work much better than any one of us possibly could. So, you’ll be saving time and improving the quality of the work done at the same time. You see why I wanted to give you these reasons for buying a little chopper before I hit you with some specific brands and models. It’s a mistake people do when they just go in it for selling purposes. We’re constantly bombarded by products and advertisements without anybody taking the time to tell us why we would even need their product. That’s why I like talking about the product in general before going in-depth with the specific models.
The third reason that’ll put your mind at ease when it comes to these little guys is the fact that famous chefs use them. You can even see it in the bunch of cooking shows. You see chefs whipping out these choppers all the time just to make a really quick marinade or pesto. So, if they use them in their own kitchens, I think they’re probably good enough for us too.
So, we have out trifecta of reasons why you should at least consider adding one of these bad boys to your kitchen arsenal. They’ll save you a lot of time, but they’ll also make your cooking better and help it reach the next level. It’ll do all the tasks you put in front of it reasonably faster than you could, and probably a lot better. Even if you’re a god with the knife, you’ll definitely tire before it does. Last point was that the world-famous chefs use them all the time, so there must be something of substance in this whole story.
Now that we’ve concluded that getting this little gadget was a good idea, we can finally get to revealing some of the best mini choppers on the market. We have a couple of hand-picked products for you, and it’ll be my honor to do the official unveiling for you.
Our winner in the today’s category is the mini chopper called Micro from Magimix. My initial encounter with this little guy taught me its blades were more than sharp and ready to take on any sort of kitchen work I can put in front of it. I cut myself by acting like an amateur and checking the sharpness of the blades with my fingers. Real sleek. The design echoes with all the time invested to think it through. And it’s very well thought through, don’t get me wrong.
It even has an opening if you want to add some liquid into the mix. So, you can, for example make a perfect batch of mayonnaise inside the very bowl. It cuts like crazy, as I’ve said already. It cut through everything I’ve put inside the bowl like it was nothing.
That’s why this is our winner of the day. It has absolutely everything a perfect little chopper should have and you can depend on it completely to get the job done.
