I purchased this from QVC one in part I drink shakes for dieting and instead of gettng out the big mixer twice a day and having to clean it. And the second part is that it just look like fun. I used it the first time and splurged and made myself a chocolate shake. It was a great.
I simply put in a couple of scoops into one of the two small cups that come with it. then I added a little milk(fat free). Then I put the attachment that chops and blends it up and put it one the machine pressed it for a few seconds and presto I had a delicious chocolte shake. The clean up was really easy too.
The Turbo Chopper comes with two small cups and four large cups. It also has a lid that you can screw on to any of the cups to store and four rings that screw onto the cups so that you can drink right out of them. It also has an attachment that if you decide to shred like fresh parmesean cheese you can put the lid on and shake it right out of the container.
This is just really a great product. You can make fresh salsa and stuff like that. It is great. I would recommend this product to anyone. I think that this would make a great gift for the college kid. Enjoy!
