A few weeks back, I was sent a Brieftons Manual Food Chopper to try out and review. The chopper holds up to 3 cups and is operated by a pull handle. It also comes with several eBooks full of recipes as well.
I did not think much of this chopper when I first took it out of the box and looked at it. The blades did not look like they would cut anything, and I honestly expected them to break on the first use. I decided to try it out with some onions. I cut the slices into smaller sections so that they wouldn’t get stuck or wedged. After securing the lid, I gave the handle a few pulls. To say I was shocked by how well it did is an understatement. The blades went through them as though they were butter…I couldn’t believe it.
With only a few pulls, the onions were chopped to the size I normally cut them to. It saved time and I didn’t have to worry about my eyes watering. With a few more pulls, I had them minced to the consistency I use for fried rice. Again, it only took me a few seconds. Aside from being careful of the size & amount of items I put in there, I haven’t had any issues whatsoever. I am hoping to try out making some salsa this weekend.
Overall, this small chopper packs a surprising punch and is worth getting. It makes a great gift and is perfect for using in kitchens, RVs, and even camping. It’s available on Amazon for $14.99 (+ shipping). There is also a 4 cup version available too.
