I've talked about this little chopper before, but I wanted to return to it as it has a relatively new and improved design. I really love this chopper. It doesn't need any electricity, and pulling the cord to make the blades go is actually rather fun. It is wonderful for chopping nuts and herbs and making pesto, sauces, and salsa. It doesn't mash vegetables to pulp the way higher powered food processors do. I really do use this more frequently than any other food processor.
