Excellent little electric chopper, but my preference is to have the greatest weight below so with in this case a chopper having the engine underneath so that the machine is more stable, and this is unfortunately on top. Philips is really good make that i personally feel i can rely on, but occasionally i feel they get it wrong. Perception may not be a technical feature, but it is important for users and buyers, and fair or otherwise, some things will inevitably be more important than maybe reality. The weight should be in the base. If the weight onset going to be int eh based then the base should be made of something that feels as though it s sturdy enough to support that weight, and visually and tactile wise, clear plastic doesn’t promote confidence. So, it does work as expected, very well as it is a philips product, but i found myself taking a good grip on the machine and holding it very firmly in place to prevent it from flying apart, which was totally unnecessary, just a perception issue. A week on and i am so in love with this little chopper. I don’t know how i’ve managed without this little tool. It has now earned its place of permanently out on the work top.
This mini chopper comes as a compact unit almost ready to use out of the box, it’s so simple to assemble and use. I would say however this is great for a single person or someone making a small amount of sauce, for larger quantities you do need to move up to a bigger product. That said we have made a nice pesto sauce pine nuts, basil, olive oil and parmesan cheese. The bowl need to be opened a couple of times to allow ore basil leaves to be added this was not a problem. The chopper/mixer comes in three parts a mixer bowl, a motor unit and blade they fix together easily and to operate just push down so you can chop continuously or pulse depending on what you are doing. The bowl and blades are dishwasher safe, and the motor unit is wipe clean with a damp cloth being sensible and not wiping the uk plug .

Philips HR1393/91 Daily Collection Chopper, 0.7 Litre, 450 Watt – Black : It’s a great size and does what it says on the packet. . It works like a dream, very simple to use. This is for small portions, hence if you add too much ingredients it will overflow. This is not food processor but a chopper, so don’t expect it to do what a regular food processor would do.
