Tossed every thing in the bowl, when cleaned and scrubbed. Cut turned, cut and turned again and should have stopped there but went a couple more turns. I had salsa. Well, not quite. It took so little time to have salad on my plate! It was awesome! So I ordered 3 more for family. One thing though: Leave the lettuce out. It gets minced. The bowl is easy to clean, but doesn't hold too much, so had to make salad in batches for my husband and I. The cutting base feels a little awkward to me as I'm used to a wood cutting board. The only other negative is the bowl sometimes lifts a bit with the knife and veggies can escape. That could be messy. I hope it lasts and doesn't wear out. What a time saver! PS: I always use carrots in salad and it even worked with them.
