He is totally unique, writes well, and is a little whimsical:

Very entertaining indeed. And now I want a mini-chopper.

Really? I just don't see it.
And I am a real sucker for most any kitchen gadget out there (my garage is filled with them, many only having been used just once.)
And how did you manage to acquire three? My google search looks like it's only available in the U.K.

Sorry, I meant 3 mini-choppers - different brands of the same idea... ;)

Well, I see there's one on Amazon now available for a mere $5.99 as an add-on item, I just may have to try it out.
Since you have three it must be a necessity, right?

It's DW proof, even the lid, with the pull cord?

"It doesn’t feel right to tip boiling liquid over a cat’s head, so let’s do it quickly. I immediately locate another problem, which is that 600ml is too much tea. It’s like filling an aquarium with PG Tips, and it’s heavy. It’s the quantity of sugary tea one might press into the hands of the recently bereaved, except you probably wouldn’t, because halfway through drinking it they’d be confronted by the emergent head of a supernatural dog."

I have a tupperware model, from Italy. All my relatives have it and I do love it. When doing large quantities of garlic or chopping onion really fine (aka hiding onions from other people's kids) it shines. This is the one - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQYOGNobC3w
I don't put it in the d/w, but the lid has been known to soak inadvertently.

I use it WAY more often than my kitchenaid plug in mini chopper. That will likely go to university with my son.
