    a machine that is used to cut the herbs into pieces

    Hi
    Could you kindly help me with this machine, I wonder if you have got it there or not it's like food processor.
    Can we also call it food processor as well? (it's just used for herbs and some veggies)

    Thanks a lot.

    It's called a leaf-mulcher. There are also tree-mulchers.

    Wow, I didn't know this instrument let alone to the word itself. Thanks a lot. But I checked it it's something like this. However, the one I mean isn't for leaves. It's used for preparing the herbs for the food. In that case can we say 'veggie mulcher or herb mulcher?
    Thanks a lot.

    Herb-grinder is the generic name, though some grinders, for example this one, are branded as "mulchers".

    It looks like an industrial mincer to me.

    The item in your link is not the same at all as the the machine in moonlike's photo.

    It looks like an industrial tool, you're right. However, here it can be also used at home (it comes in a bit smaller size). The one that abaka used 'mulcher' looked like that somehow. Although the link abaka provided didn't look the same, it does the same thing, it crushes and grinds.
