Preethi Turbo Chop is the smaller version of a mixer grinder (mini mixie) that can grind/chop vegetables and fruits into fine pieces. If you are looking for a device to cut/chop vegetables into large/medium pieces to make poriyal (large bits), etc. this is not the apt device.

However, if you want to chop them into finer pieces or even grind them into a paste or make them into finely ground poriyal, kesari, juice, chutney, etc., Preethi Turbo Chop is a good option.

Recently, we made a few Deepavali dishes using Preethi Turbo Chop – Tomato rice, Cabbage vada, Carrot Halwa & Pomegranate juice. Detailed recipes for making these dishes are available at the above link. Based on our experience, here are the advantages & limitations of Preethi Turbo Chop.
- Easy operation
- Saves time, chopping is fast
- Press action enables us to choose rotation/cutting intensity
- Large bowl
- Simple setup & assembly
- Easy to clean
- 450W motor is powerful and doesn’t consume as much electricity as its 750W mixer grinder variants
- Not only a chopper but also a blender
- Value for money
- Occupies very less space
- Sharp blades
- White colour looks simple and elegant in the kitchen
- Slightly difficult to clean at the motor opening, especially in between chopping multiple veg/fruits
- Doesn’t chop veggies into medium or large bits, chops them only into fine bits or powder. If you accidentally extend the operation, it becomes a paste. Need to be careful how long you use the motor
- We are dependent on electricity for its operation. Doesn’t work during power cuts
- Lower jar could have had a handle
