Super Chopper

I don't use my large processor much any more But I still like to have a small one to help me out. I bought this Black& Decker 2 speed Super Chopper and it is the worst thing possible for anything liquid. It leaks all over and makes a mess. ( I guess it's just made for solids.I want a new one; wondering if I could get ideas here of what you use.
Thanks.

I've had one of those little mini-Cuisinart choppers for almost 10 years now & I love it. It handles everything from a few garlic cloves & herbs for pestos, to sauces & other liquids as well. Here's a link to what I assume is the current model:

I paid about $20 for mine 10 years ago - I see that it's double that now on the Cuisinart site, but I'm sure you could find one cheaper. Mine is quite a bit plainer, & has the old-fashioned push-down lever-buttons instead of a "touch pad". I'm sure it's the same as far as function.

What did you process in the unit that caused it to leak all over the place?
Have you considered the Magic Bullet? I got one, but I haven't used it yet.

At this point, you might just as well have used your large food processor. You'd have had much more room and you might have been able to eliminate all that mess that you've had to clean up.

Your welcome!

Your blender should also work for large amounts of liquids as well.
