Win Yourself a KitchenAid Food Chopper for Christmas!

The KitchenAid Food chopper is like having a spare pair of hands in the kitchen – and you can win one!

Win a Kitchenaid Food Chopper

We all have favourite tools and toys that we simply can’t do without in the kitchen. I’m a sucker for a gadget and have far too many of them  cluttering up my shelves. I see a new toy on the store shelves or in culinary magazines and just know my life will be incomplete without it. I race out and buy it, use it twice, then leave it languishing. It’s better that I don’t go into too much detail here lest my husband find out just how much stuff is actually in the pantry, but let’s just say that apparently life swans along quite nicely without ever using the popcorn machine, the special container for growing my own sprouts, the engraved rolling pin and the electric chocolate melter. In my defence, at least I can say that I have not bought the vegetable spiralizer – shredded veggies are not pasta. Not ever.

However, there are a couple of things I would not like to be without and one in particular that I reach for repeatedly – and that is the KitchenAid Food Chopper. Mine was a gift from when I attended the KitchenAid Gourmet Summit in Manila. With a stainless steel blade and a 3 1/2 cup capacity, it is made with all the quality one expects from this respected brand and is, quite simply, utterly brilliant.

I keep mine on my kitchen bench and use it almost daily for chopping onions, herbs, breadcrumbs, nuts and small amounts of vegetables. A press of the button and it will puree sauces and soups, make dips, whip up mayonnaise or pesto in seconds and rinse clean in the sink – it is honestly like having a spare pair of hands. In fact, I often find it faster to chop things with this great little machine and rinse it out afterwards, than to use a knife and board

Having one of these on hand will make your Christmas food prep an absolute breeze. The lovely folk at KitchenAid are offering one for my readers to win – and you even get to choose the colour you prefer.

    Our family shares the food preparation duties on Christmas day and this year I’ve drawn ‘snacks to go with opening presents’ I’m planning to make homemade dips and a kitchen aid chopper would make this process a breeze. For the record, we’ve got a big family who love food so there’s also plans for the following;
    – Nibbles for the backyard cricket spectators
    -Something sweet to go with the cup of tea we’ll enjoy after the post lunch food coma nap
    -Brunch on boxing day (most incorporate left over ham

    Time to get out the stretchy pants!

    Great giveaway Amanda. Sounds like the KitchenAid food chopper will help me no end with Christmas cooking and beyond. It would be handy to have on hand for those quick chopping or pureeing tasks when time is of the essence.

    What a great prize. I love Kitchenaid; I have the mixer and the pasta maker but not the chopper! The chopper would certainly help me as I make two different seasonings for the turkey – so many nuts and fruits to chop. I could also use it for the frozen Christmas pudding I make that is laden with fruits and nuts xx

    Being able to create exceptional creations and to treat our family and friends to sensational food by using the KitchenAid Food Chopper is the essence of a Christmas celebration!

    I’d pass it on to my son’s partner, Laura – former chef, full-time mum, baby son and 7 & 8 year old “big sisters” busting to help with Christmas prep.

    What a wonderful Christmas present/prize for an enthusiastic cook. Christmas is always a busy time when I prepare so much more that is seasonal and is so enjoyable to devour.

    I did a massive kitchen clean up a couple of weekends ago, I found never used equipment and still in their boxes. Ha! Pretty sure one of those boxes contained the older version of this beautiful giveaway. Super duper good luck to everyone. Happy weekend to you sweets, hope you survived the blistering heat today. 🙂

    I reckon this chopper would sooooo help with those salads and purees and coulis and just be an all round excellent kitchen prep assistant (maybe it would be like having an apprentice do the boring bits).

    I aspire to own a KitchenAid appliance. My old food processor is so clunky that I’m sure my life would be better (and I’d be happier) if I owned a KitchenAid Food Chopper. Then I could give the chop to a number of useless appliances that I hide in my cupboard. The KitchenAid Food Chopper would hold pride ignorance on my bench top and it would help me to make all sorts of delicious delights for my friends.

    I once tried to make breadcrumbs by hand for stuffing a turkey. Never again…. This little gem would help take the stress out of Christmas

  12. Peggy Bright
    20/11/2015

    Oh wow, there are so many ways I could use a KitchenAid Food Chopper for my Christmas preparations, starting with the turkey stuffing on Christmas eve. Goodness, if I was lucky enough to win it, I’d plan a menu that meant it was used for every course in every meal.

  13. Ross S

    Give it to my Mum and watch like a hawk while she makes all her Christmas goodies.

  14. Elizabeth
    21/11/2015

    I definitely agree with James – a little machine like this would make light work out of breadcrumbs, and would also be great for pesto! My big food processor struggles to deal with small quantities, so I think this would be perfect.

  15. Lynn
    21/11/2015

    I make cheeseballs and it would chop the scallions, cheese and chipped beef. In addition, I could also use it to chop peppers for a pepper salsa.

  16. Dianne Childs
    21/11/2015

    I’d use it to chop salad ingredients like onion (everyone hates cutting onions by hand!) and for making breadcrumbs for the stuffing!

    This wonderful little machine would be a god send for me at any time in the preparation of food, not just at Christmas, as I have severe rheumatoid arthritis. The KitchenAid Food Chopper would make life in the kitchen a lot easier

  18. RF
    21/11/2015

    This would enable me to make more impressive meals without involving a trip to the Emergency Department (I speak from embarrassing experience).

  19. Narelle Abbie
    22/11/2015

    would be so easy to use I could get the kids to do most of the work and sit back with a glass of wine and relax!

  20. Lucy

    I’d love to win a KitchenAid food chopper. This would be my first KitchenAid appliance. I’d use it to make a great dip and take it to my cousin’s, who is hosting Christmas this year. I’d also take it to my cousin’s on Christmas day so she can use it to help prepare Christmas lunch for 22.

  21. Suzanne
    22/11/2015

    This would be perfect for making rum balls for Christmas:)

  22. Melanie

    Wanted: Kitchen Aid aka Kitchen Maid to live in the Adelaide Hills with a non-smoking foodie family, must like making dips, coulis, dressings, sauces and nut butters for nutters. Must be prepared to work weekends. Will be accommodated in a clean, dry pantry next to the juicer.

    I have wanted one of these for ages!!!

  24. Clare
    24/11/2015

    Where to start! I’d use the KitchenAid Chopper to make fresh pesto using herbs from my garden, home made but butter, salsa verde to top a juicy steak, and my kids favourite, mango yogurt ‘ice cream’ by blitzing frozen mango and greek yogurt.

  25. Amber
    24/11/2015

    I would use it to chop nuts and chocolate-I loathe chopping things like that by hand!

  26. Kylie Cane
    24/11/2015

    This little beauty would make everything about Christmas food prep easier and be a stylish addition to the kitchen. Chopping onions, making stuffing, chopping glace fruit and nuts for the Christmas cake. What couldn’t you do with it?

  27. Lea Anita Black
    24/11/2015

    I would love it to chop all those things that take forever to chop by hand like onions into small pieces!! Great wanted prize!

  28. Angela Booth

    After ankle surgery this week and a week on crutches I will still be in a moon boot at Christmas time! I’m still having Christmas at my house though PLUS our youngest’s 3rd birthday party 3 days later. So either, you come to the party and do all the chopping OR I win the Kitchen Aid to help me with all the treats I have planned…OR BOTH! Love, Ange xxx 🙂

    I think it just means I would actually have to cook something this year. ?

  30. Lisa Van Der Draay

    I would love to win this Kitchenaid food chopper as it would make my life a lot simpler at Christmas with preparing all the nuts and fruit for my cake and pudding and all the other food I have to prepare it would be a dream.

  31. lynne lillington
    24/11/2015

    Salads in a minute, onions without tears, the perfect stuffing, rum balls for everyone, smooth pea and ham soup and one big vodka slushee to finish the day. The list is endless.

  32. Sarah Phillips
    24/11/2015

    I’d love a KitchenAid Food Chopper to prepare some homemade dips for Christmas. With it’s help I may even be able to sneak some veggies in without the kiddies knowing!

  33. sandra marsh
    24/11/2015

    The feasting,the family,the day of excess…yep,me excessively chopping as I prepare for the indulgence everyone enjoys.Well with the KitchenAid Chopper,I would actually find time to enjoy the day.Merry Christmas to all

  34. Sue Walton
    24/11/2015

    I would use this for preparing snacks (dips etc.,), mains (all those fiddly chopped onions, garlic) and desserts (cheesecake nut pastry). AND the best of all, those wonderful eggnog smoothies……..yummy!

  35. Angela Youens
    24/11/2015

    Love Kitchen Aid, love cooking – but I hate lots of chopping! The kids always helped out, but now that they have all moved out, this little sweetie could take their place!

  36. Amanda
    25/11/2015

    Perfect little device to prepare my menu giving me more time to mingle and less time mixing

  37. Leanne Kapetanovski
    25/11/2015

    I have always dreamt of making my own stuffing for the roast chicken, this chopper will cut everything to the same size and mix it well together. Yum!

  38. Terry
    25/11/2015

    With a large number of guests for Christmas dinner, I need all the help I can get

  39. christina Bickley
    25/11/2015

    This little beauty would certainly help me to bring about a traditional xmas dinner from chopping to gentle mincing for fruit pies, ginger xmas cake to turkey bread stuffing for my family this year, its extra special with a daughter that I have not seen for 19 years thank you Kitchenaid 🙂

  40. Deb Coulthard
    25/11/2015

    Imagine the dishes and recipies you could creat using the chopper! It would make you look like a pro in the Kitchen!

  41. Jehanne
    25/11/2015

    Looks an awful lot better than using my old food processor with the big crack up the side of the bowl! It might actually contain the liquid!! Fingers crossed!

  42. Angela Capoccia
    25/11/2015

    OMG!! Would be heaven….Christmas Chopping and Mixing with a dream machine for – Panforte; Mince Pies; Crostoli; Shortbread; Christmas Cake (darn- did that on the weekend – lots of chopping); Sfgogliatelle….the list goes on…… My life would be a dream..

  43. Anita
    25/11/2015

    I have just purchased the Mixer Stand and love it! I’ve planned my Christmas menu and can definitely see my preparation time be completed more quickly and efficiently with KitchenAid Food Chopper 🙂

  44. Sarah
    25/11/2015

    A KitchenAid Food Chopper would be a lifesaver for Christmas preparations. I can’t chop onions without crying all over the place, and it would be great for quick dips and mayo. A fabulous addition to start my long-awaited KitchenAid collection.

  45. Jessica Maloney
    25/11/2015

    My twin sister who is obsessed with electronics and technology, would be swept off her feet in amazement by the Chopper and will actually agree to help with cooking for once!

  46. Isabelle Hershman
    26/11/2015

    I love cooking and baking but I much prefer relaxing by the pool with my guest while the Kitchenaid food chopper does all the work .

  47. Ling
    27/11/2015

    oooohh!! I’ll be making fresh breadcrumbs for my crumbed prawns, homemade dips as the boys will only eat Hummus. 🙂 And definitely would help whiz up some fresh herbs and butter for my roast chicken.

  48. Doris Di Rienzo
    30/11/2015

    Oh what a wonderful little tool this would be . The turkey stuffing would be chopped in a minute , the dips would be prepared in seconds , the herbs for all the vegetables and salads would be chopped in a flash . Yes please .

    I would like to attempt to make a proper turkey – with stuffing this year. It’s our first Christmas in our new house and I’d like to make it magical with a delicious stuffing …. so it would help with my stuffing (to get it fine enough so my picky 3 year old will eat it too haha!)

    03/12/2015

    This year will be my first time hosting Christmas lunch for my family of 14 at my house. I naively insisted on preparing everything myself for the occasion- rookie mistake! I have started planning my menu and am freaking out at how much work is involved! Going to definitely need a spare pair of hands (or two!) in the kitchen. This KitchenAid Food Chopper could be my saviour!

  51. Dimity

    Squeeze! Awesome prize! And just in time for Christmas! Thanks Amanda xo

  52. Lisa Van Der Draay
    04/12/2015

    The Kitchenaid food chopper would be a real blessing to me especially with all the food preperation for Christmas day and also when making my Christmas pudding and Christmas cake, a real dream. 🙂

    Oops, bad me – emailed the winner, but forgot to post the winner here. The winner of this competition was Clare Curry (Scottathirst) who is probably whipping things up with the chopper as we speak!
