The Ultra Chef is similar to our Salsa Express Miracle Chopper
, and Kitchen Plus
, but this package is unique in comparison. It's most similar to the Kitchen Plus, but this one features a storage lid, a slightly different container design, and the curving, samurai cutting blade. The Kitchen Plus comes with a grating attachment that you won't get with this model. If you are looking for a more basic basic version, then the Salsa Express
or Manual Food Processor
would be the way to go. The first one comes with only a chopping blade and egg separator, while the latter comes with a cutting blade, whipping blade, salad spinner and egg separator.
Why It's Good
- Efficient. A simple spin allows you to cut 20 times faster than you can with a knife. You can finish, in a matter of seconds, what used to take you several minutes by hand.
- Accurate. Make anything from home fries to baby food, and ensure that it has the perfect consistency. Hand powered operation allows you to observe the results, and stop at the precise moment when the food is the size you want it.
- Triple Blade. High quality stainless steel is used to create three curving blades with razor sharp edges. Each rotation will result in multiple cuts in multiple locations, and because it slices through at several heights, you ensure a uniform chop, no matter how full the bowl is. Hard food or soft can be sliced just as easily with this tool.
- Versatile. A 7 in 1 tool that just about does it all. This gadget makes a perfect addition to any kitchen because it's so darn useful. Chop like a champion, but also slice, whip, blend, shred and juice with professional results. The additional parts in this set are not just filler. They add real functionality that you will find incredibly useful.
- Contained. Onion juice can make you cry, and garlic stinks, but when you chop it with this tool, you would never know. Messy sauces remain contained, and stinky odors never hit your olfactories. With the completely contained design messes are reduced, clean up is easy, and crying over food prep is a thing of the past.
- Simple Storage. All parts nest conveniently right in the bowl, so storing this set is easy. Easily find room in your cupboard for the compact space it requires when not in use.
- Crank Powered. Electric machines can be bulky and expensive, and they don't always allow for the results you desire. There's no need to plug this one in, and because it's so affordable, it can be used occasionally, or everyday, and still remain valuable.
- Dishwasher Safe. Cleaning comparable tools and appliances can be tough and time consuming. This one is incredibly simple to clean because it comes completely apart in seconds, and every part is dishwasher safe. Just place into your dishwasher on the top rack and forget about it.
Slicing Insert - Slice tomatoes and onions for sandwiches, or slice oranges for breakfast, garnish or snacks. This part slides into the lid to give you a single thickness slicing tool. Use the food holder to slide stuff back and forth, and cut it with a uniform thickness. Each piece you cut will be perfectly sized, and it will drop right down into the bowl below.
Julienne Insert - Slide this blade into position to cut thin strips for salads and sides. Each pass will result in several sticks with an identical thickness. It's perfect for carrots, zucchini, and other veggies. Use it with cabbage to make coleslaw, potatoes for hash browns, or use it with squash to make a vegetarian pasta. Once in place, just glide foods back and forth to produce piles of strips in the bowl below.

Because it becomes part of the lid, anything you shred will be captured and contained in the bowl below.

Press down while twisting to press out every last drop. As the liquid is extracted, it will drop down into the container automatically.
Whipping Blade - Most people get this tool for it's chopping and slicing abilities, but the additional plastic blade adds in a whole host of abilities that anyone would find useful. Simply install instead of the metal blade to whip cream, stir batter, beat eggs, or combine liquid ingredients. With the speed and power you can achieve, it acts like a hand held blender to whip desserts, pancake batter, yogurt and more. Spin in either direction to whip and mix with ease.
Food Holder - To protect your fingers, and prevent accidental injuries, but also allow you to use more of the food you are working with, this set includes a safety holder. Metal prongs will allow you to poke vegetables securely, and the pusher allows you to press out, and cut, every last part.
