This is another essential in my kitchen. Kenwood again. It chops nuts in moments and makes light work of purees for icings, etc.

The Kenwood CH180 Mini Chopper, shown here, is available from Amazon, Argos, larger Boots stores, Sainsbury’s, House of Fraser, Allders, John Lewis and all good kitchen shops.

Delia says, 'If you want to short-circuit lots of tedious chopping and knife sharpening, I’m really enthusiastic about this ingenious mini food processor. 1 tablespoon chopped parsley: 2 seconds, ¾ packet watercress: 4-5 seconds, a finely chopped onion… you name it – thousands of fast little processes that save you time.'
