Magimix Le Micro Mini Chopper
don't know what I did before I had this little chopper
have had it for over a year- only got this mini processor because of space constraints, but it really punches above its weight.
it gets a LOT of use with no complaints so far- was worried it might be a bit flimsy (from previous reviews) but me and my heavy handed family haven't managed to break it yet
Am now pondering an upgrade to larger Magimix-only hope it's as good!

Small and versatile
This machine is small enough to just chop one onion and big enough to do two or more.
Fantastic for making thick sauces and dips, the blade is strong and sharp enough to chop vegetables and meat.
This product may be small in size but it's strong enough to handle most jobs for your cooking, it takes little amount of space can be tucked away in your cupboard or can be left on your worktop
Worth every penny highly recommended it.

Broke within months - don't waste your time and money
Excellent machine for all the reasons given above. Unfortunately it has a design fault - the lid is too flimsy to withstand the pressure of the spring in the handle. The spring is part of a safety mechanism to ensure that the lid is on when operating. It broke on mine within months although used carefully and not that often. Unfortunately I can't recommend it for this reason. Pity!

Really useful product
It does what it says......great for chopping onions, garlic and for making pesto! Easy to clean and small enough to put away!

Fantastic mini chopper!
Bought magi mix mini chopper after my previous one broke. Very happy that I invested in mini magi mix (own it's big sister too), use it almost every day! The whole processor feels solid and the blades are very sharp. I make lots of curry pastes and this little helper does the job brilliantly!

Marvellous & Stylish little machine
I ordered & paid for my mini processor on the phone at the weekend & it was delivered to my local Waitrose on the Monday. Fantastic service. I bought the light cream model as it has a nice 'retro ' look.
It is perfect for small quantities of chopped nuts, herbs etc., when you may not want to get out a large m/c. Really easy to clean too, be careful of blades tho as they are extremely sharp (which of course they need to be). I bought this as a result of reading other happy customer reviews of same model.
It would be nice if they brought it back in the range of pretty colours they did last Christmas!

It doesn't chop so much as minces!
After reading all the very good reviews and the Which report, which says it's very good at chopping, it seemed like the perfect machine as I have trouble chopping things like carrots and any other hard vegetables. But it really only shreds, or blends everything, which is fine if you want to make a soup, but not a stew, or casserole, or just general vegetables on the side. The instructions say it is best to cut the vegetable into 2cm pieces before putting in the machine. This rather defeats the purpose for me and I'm surprised it doesn't mention this anywhere in the description before you buy it. Looking for a true electric vegetable chopper now!

I have not had this mini chopper long, but it has already proved very handy and has decreased the 'prep' time on a few recipes by chopping the onions, garlic and chillies etc up for me. I primarily purchased it as I want to make my own Thai Red Curry paste after tasting my friend's home made version which is so many times better than the bought versions that I would never buy paste again. All you need is the ingredients then you just pop the lot in the chopper and it does the rest for you. Very easy and quick to wash up and takes up very little space. A lot of kitchen equipment never gets used because it is such an effort to clean up afterwards, but not in this case, you will use it.
