From my research I’ve found that overall folks are happy with this appliance. A big plus that kept popping up is the handle is positioned to be used with ease, whether you’re right-handed or left-handed; it’s truly ambidextrous.
No more struggling and feeling awkward when using your appliance, as is apt to happen to a lot of left-handed people. As a left-handed person myself, I can testify that anything that is easy for me to use, without having to do it backward, is a must-have.
Also, the base doesn’t move when in use, it stays put on the counter without sliding around. And it’s easy on counter space too.
This company’s 9-cup version is versatile and excels at making a variety of foods; everything from bread crumbs to chopping up raw meat. Once you’ve tried this gadget in your kitchen, you’ll be recommending it to everyone you know.
