I bought this to replace a similar item that had broken (thin plastic). This is easier on my wrists, vs. the other one that had a hand-crank, and the suction cups hold it to the counter well. I think the chopping blade is better, but it won’t chop pieces that are not already cut small enough. It has a little less capacity, as well. I probably won’t use the bending paddle. But the basket for spinning a small amount of leafy greens is the other feature I do use, and it works very well for that.
