I'm quite tempted but would like to see proof that you can store all the bits inside the bowl, except for the extra lids. This is my problem with all of these sorts of things. If all the bits can't be kept together then they get 'misplaced' and I don't know which bits go with which other bits so they get shoved to the back of the cupboard never to be seen again.
I did buy it just a short time ago with Gail on the demo. I use a salad spinner a reasonable amount but the chopper set was a huge bonus as I like to do dauphinois potatoes and slicing them is a huge big bear of mine so having this added one is a bonus. In terms of storage I have a set of Whicker baskets that I bought nearly 30 years ago from Lakeland and they are fab for this kind of storage.
Supercoolwillow’s post says that most of the items can be stored inside the bowl and in the demo the top of the cutter was inverted and the bowl sat on it like a tray. So, it’s looking like it is all fairly neatly stackable.
My gammy hands make it harder and harder for me to chop and peel things and while my Ninja chops, it doesn't grate cheese or dice things. I have a lot of salads too in summer so I may just go and buy the green one. If I don't get on with it then it can go back as I've been quite good recently at returning things I've changed my mind on.

I haven't even taken mine out the box yet - better give it a test run at the weekend. Mr CC will be delighted that it's salad for sunday dinner (not!) 🐰🐰

Do not even think of buying this. It is useless and flimsy. I sent mine back this morning cost £5.89 to post it back to them. Never again will I buy anything cookware from QVC after this.

I thought it looked pretty poor when even Gail was struggling to chop quite a few different things with it when she was presenting the TSV.

The reviews are not good for it either. That pull cord in the salad spinner part will not last very long - a few hand washes later and it will turn porous and just snap.

I have an IKEA salad spinner it’s basic but it does a great job. It rotates both ways. Last year it was £5.00 and this year it is £4.00.

If you are after a dedicated multi chopper have a look on Amazon the Fullstar multi chopper is the best bet at £14.99 and massively highly rated.
Actually I like mine and you get a lot for your money. OK it's basic and it's not heavy duty but I wanted it to dice peppers/tomatoes/cucumbers for salads as my hands can't deal with a knife anymore. Does a decent job. I can't see it making chips though as I think the stress of whacking a spud through those holes would have it broken in no time. I've still got my Ninja chopper for all the serious jobs.
