Advantages: easy to use, sturdy, fave kitchen tool!
Disadvantages: fairly expensive, hard to get hold of
When I went to my first Pampered Chef party, I was more than a little sceptical about the wonder chopper (complete with hand gesture!) that my friend raved about.
However, the demonstrator really sold this to me! A compact piece of kit, it is a pump actioned, multi bladed chopper that allows you to chop finely any vegetable, herb, cooked meat, cheese, pretty much anything!
It comes in 3 pieces - the main body with a zigzagged blade which is exceedingly sharp. This has an unfoldable cuff that protects fingers from the blades. As well as this there is a see through strong plastic collar that allows you to see how it is cutting, and protects you from the strong smells (onions!)and flying pieces, and the whole piece of kit is rounded off with a silicone lid, that allows you to move around the kitchen with the whole thing as a unit.
Fantastic for family cooking - do you have problems getting your children eating vegetables? Look no further, this wonderful toy allows you to get the veg really small and easy to hide in sauces and meat etc.
Also, if your making burgers or meatballs or some such, with the food chopper you can chop up the onions needed really small, also without having to worry about cooking them seperately. It also protects your hands and nose from the often strong smells of garlic, or onions.
As you can tell, I love my chopper, and would strongly recommend it for most kitchens.
The downside, I guess it is, like most Pampered Chef products fairly expensive, although along with this it comes with a really good guarantee. Also, not that easy to get hold of directly, 2 options really - the website, or through a party.
****Edited to add the following:
Following requests in my comments let me add that the chopper costs £25 on the website, but if you host a party and enough gets sold this can be a lot cheaper, or even free - my rep told me that they give away more than they sell.
And also - washing up!
In order to wash this product you take the 3 pieces apart and wash in hot water, now, you shouldn't try and go near it with a cloth, the best thing to do is to rinse it under scalding hot water, but it can go on the top shelf of the dishwasher.
I hope this answers the questions?
