To test the effectiveness of the Pigeon Plastic Mini Handy And Compact chopper, we tried chopping different ingredients. For chopping, we took almonds, garlic, ginger, onions, a mix of onions & tomatoes, green chillies and roasted chana. We chose ingredients that are commonly used in Indian households on a daily basis.

If you are planning to chop nuts make sure to cut them into small pieces and then place them in the chopper. While garlic, onions and ginger were chopped well, green chillies did not get chopped as per our requirement, which was a let down. 

The blades of Pigeon chopper are extremely light in weight and require careful placement. For effective chopping of vegetables, ensure that you pull the string rigorously. Since the chopper contains detachable parts, cleaning of the chopper is an easy task.
