Kenwood mini-chopper

The Kenwood mini-chopper is one of the Delia-recommended 'cheat' pieces of equipment, and a mighty fine one it is, at that. I bought one a couple of years ago, and use it all the time for garlic, onions, herbs, breadcrumbs, that sort of thing. Anyway, to get to the point - I just bought a new one (from Amazon) to use at Dad's, as I'm here so much now - and they've adapted the lid, so it now has a thingie through which you can pour stuff like oil - and therefore it's now ideal for making small amounts of mayonnaise - even includes a recipe. I think I saw the lid being sold separately, too, so if you have an old style one of these, might be worth updating your lid. Just thought I'd share!

;o) Not laughing!

I love mine too. It's good to know you can buy the lid separately. I'll have a look for that.

Appears to be just the gadget I could use in my kitchen for (1) chopping onions and blending spices, and (2) chopping walnuts. My concern is that the bowl will become tainted with the onion/spice smell. I assume that if well washed this shouldn't happen! Daft question, but any problems in that regard.

I've not had any problems in that way - but I tend to rinse the bowl out as soon as I've used it (as opposed to leaving it for a dishwasher or something like that). I think they do replacement bowls, too, so if it's a concern you could always get 2 - one for pungent things and one for the rest :)

Thanks for your advice.

When I've done herbs like parsley and mint, as you can imagine, it's pretty green, but it always washes off without any problems.
