How to Use the Brieftons Food Chopper

For best results when using the Brieftons Food Chopper, please follow the below instructions:

1. Place the food chopper on a flat, stable surface. The non-slip base will ensure that it remains stationary.
2. Open the lid and place the blade on the locating pin in the base of the container.
3. Chop soft food into golf ball size chunks. Chop hard food into smaller chunks if necessary.
4. Place the chopped food around the blade in the container.
5. Locate the pin in the base of the lid into the center of the blade. Ensure the lid fits flush with the container.
6. With one hand push down firmly on the lid of the food chopper. Use your free hand to pull the rip cord that spins the chopping blades.
7. At first pull the cord gently to ensure it is moving freely. If there is resistance from hard food like carrots, start the chopping process with short pulls.
8. If the blade doesn’t move freely, open the lid to check that the blade has been located correctly into the lid. Reposition large chunks around the blades if necessary.
9. A complete pull on the cord will chop food sixteen times. To reach a desired consistency of your food, open the lid and inspect food every second or third pull.


How fine or coarse your food is will depend on the number of pulls you do.

  • 1 – 5 pulls for coarse, chunky cuts
  • 6 – 10 pulls for medium to fine cuts
  • 11 – 20 pulls for fine to very fine cuts
  • 20 or more pulls for very fine of puree consistency.
