    Food chopper recommendations for raw spinach plse 7th Jan 18 at 12:52 PM
    Hope this is in the right forum. I am looking for a kitchen gadget that will chop raw baby spinach very finely. There are lots of products out there that chop and I have one myself, but when I used mine, even though I didn't put it on for long, all I got was spinach puree!

    I have a lot of raw spinach and at the moment chop it finely with a knife, which is how I prefer it but it's a bit time consuming when I have a lot to chop.

    I just wondered if anyone can recommend a small machine that will do the job without turning the spinach to mush.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Not taking the mickey, but could you use scissors? I do for 'chopping' fresh herbs and suchlike.

    A Bamix with the mill attachment does the job perfectly. At £100 it!!!8217;s not a cheap bit of kit but we bought ours 21 years ago and it!!!8217;s still going strong. It does so much more than chopping spinach and is powerful enough to crush ice into slush.

    Actually you've got a point, I didn't even think of using scissors! I will give that a try, thank you. I bunched the spinach up to cut it with a knife but that didn't work either, all the little leaves went everywhere

    Thank you, can't stretch to that though unfortunately, but I've heard good things about the Bamix.

    Just bundle the spinach into a tight parcel and use a knife - takes seconds!

    I've got some of those scissors funnily enough, I use them to shred personal info on letters

    I've tried that, but because it's baby spinach and there are loads of little leaves it doesn't work - at least not with me! lol
