When I first received this, I was a bit disappointed that it was so small, then I used it. I had 2 cut my onions into pieces 2 use it but within 2 minutes the whole huge onion was perfectly diced! Then the tomatoes were perfect too! I think that I now use this almost daily and I would not trade it for any other dicer. It even locks so little hands (or big) won’t be accidentally hurt. I love it!
