The brand new mini chopper ball from Russell Hobbs

Russell Hobbs is launching an innovative new mini chopper, shaped like a ball, as part of its new Allure range of smart kitchen gadgets. 

The ball chopper features 'one-touch operation', is claimed to be dishwasher safe and is designed to impress your guests. Russell Hobbs says it's perfect for chopping onions, garlic, herbs, baby food, and even for creaming ingredients. 

New kitchen appliances

The mini chopper is part of the new Allure range of kitchen appliances from Russell Hobbs that also includes a jug blender, hand blender and hand mixer.

Which? small appliances expert Lisa Galliers says: 'Mini choppers are great for quickly tackling small processing jobs, where you don't want the hassle of setting up and cleaning your food processor.

'The new ball chopper will certainly be a talking point if your dining guests spot one of these in your kitchen, but is it effective? We'll be trying it out in the Which? offices shortly and will bring you our first impressions.'

The designer-inspired range features brushed-chrome finishes with matt black accents and embossed logos.
