Could be great if they improved the quality.
I bought this and the first couple of times I used it I thought it was brilliant, it chopped well and did what I wanted it to do. The next time I used it the lip on the lid broke and couldn't be repaired so the chopper was useless. I was considering buying another as it was so useful. I wondered whether had just gotten a faulty one or I had mishandled it but reading the reviews all saying the same I won't bother. Sort it out Russell Hobbs, this could be a great little product if it was better quality.
NOT ‘FIT FOR PURPOSE’!
Don’t waste your money … I have purchased two of these (I gave the first breakage the benefit of the doubt), yet both broke within a couple of times of me using them. The issue is, the plastic lid has a ‘lip’ on it which has to ‘lock’ into the base unit before it will operate, yet the plastic is far too flimsy, brittle and of poor quality to withstand this, so it just breaks off. Quite simply, the product is ‘not fit for purpose’. What’s worse, Russell Hobbs, wouldn’t accept it is a ‘ design fault’ (despite all the poor reviews), instead, they tried to charge me circa £8 for a replacement lid! I don’t think so!
Purchased in store and wasted my money. Cheap plastic lid that broke the second time I went to use it. Don’t buy and invest in a different brand.
Dont buy - waste of money

Very poor quality plastic. Used just twice and the plastic container cracked while washing. Had to dispose as you dont get spare parts. Please dont buy.
Not strong plastic

Had this as a gift. Sadly the bowl soon broke. Not a strong plastic
Smoking pile of rubbish
Just bought this today, added half a red bell pepper and half an onion, pressed the button and smoke immediately started coming out of it with a horrible metallic burning smell, returning in the morning
Flawed design and quickly broke
I bought two of these. One for my student son and one for us at home. The design is flawed and the catch to secure the lid snapped off both mixers after a very short use.
Lid breaks too easily. Would be good otherwise.
If it weren't for the lid locking bit of plastic breaking so easily this would be an ace product. I wish I read the reviews before buying...I only got about 3 uses from it before it broke. Sort it out Russell Hobbs.
I have bought this product twice, six months apart, both times there was a fault - plugged it in but it did not work, returned both times - it did not work for C/service either
dont waste your money only used it 5 times and the clip of the lid broke.
