Pros:Chops limited amounts foods quickly, easy to clean.

Cons:Price

The Bottom Line: It chops and it mixes very quickly. Good for small chopping chores.


I recently purchased the Tupperware Quick Chef. Its unassuming form combined with its amazing ability to function surprised me. When it comes out of the box, it’s difficult to believe this little gizmo can perform as well as advertised.


What Does Tupperware Say

This quick-and-easy alternative to electric food processors allows you to prepare ingredients for your favorite recipes with ease. With just a single turn of the handle, the blade or paddle whisk rotates four times, minimizing time and effort. The stainless steel blade chops fruits and vegetables effortlessly, while the paddle whisk quickly whips or mixes cream, salad dressings and dips. Add the funnel attachment in sapphire to incorporate oil into mayonnaise, pesto sauce or salad dressing. And for the ultimate in control and versatility, the clear container with sapphire blue cover features a non-skid base as well as u.s. and metric measurements.


Appearance


The Quick Chef is approximately 6” in diameter and constructed of very sturdy feeling plastic. The Sapphire lid screws onto the clear plastic base. The base is the chamber that will hold that which is to be chopped. On the bottom, there is a ring of nubbed rubber, which holds the Chef firmly on the counter. The food chamber has measuring marks on two sides. One side is for cups up to 4 cups and the other for millimeters up to 1000 millimeters. The sapphire lid has an attachment for the handle that makes the magic happen. The Chef comes with a blade attachment and a mixing attachment.


Use

When you decide to chop something, you must place the chopping blade into the food chamber. I have to put out a HUGE warning here! These are the SHARPEST blades I’ve ever encountered, short of surgical scalpels. Place the food you wish to chop into the food chamber and watch the magic as you turn the handle. I don’t know how it works, (I’m assuming gears), but as Tupperware says above, for each turn of the handle, the blade makes four trips around the chamber. It is amazing how quickly your vegetables or whatever you desire are chopped. It even passed my test of grocery store tomatoes. It makes great salsa.

I decided to try the tuna salad recipe that came with the Chef. It called for parsley, scallions, salt and pepper in the Chef bowl with the blade. My goodness, it was fast. Then you carefully remove the blade and insert the paddle whisk, some lime juice, hot sauce and tuna. Just turn the handle until well blended which was not very long.

There is also a funnel that can fit into the top for emulsifying oils into mayonnaise, salad dressings, etc.


Cleaning

Recommended cleaning is with a sponge in warm soapy water, rinse and dry thoroughly. Avoid metal scouring pads and brushes. I will caution you once more to beware the blades.


My Thoughts

The Tupperware Quick Chef pleasantly surprised me. It really is very efficient and I often use it at lunchtime to chop a few things for a salad and simply rinse it off and hang it to dry. I haven’t tried the funnel yet. Maybe, I will sometime. This product really does take minutes off food prep. It is not as cumbersome as the food process, but it does have its limits, so it will never replace the food processor, but it replaced my Pampered Chef Food Chopper. Once again, I do not recall paying as much as it says at this time. Maybe I did and chose to forget.

Price

$49.95. Surely I didn’t pay that much for it. It’s a wonderful food prep tool, but that’s a lot of money.
