Operation and Safety Manual
Introduction
™
Overview
This Operation and Safety Manual has been prepared to introduce you to the Brice CHEF
range of vegetable choppers. It explains the operation, cleaning and maintenance of the
chopper in simple, clear terms and with an emphasis on your safety.
Throughout the Manual procedures are supported by photographs showing the parts
involved and the recommended safe method of handling those parts.
A word to the wise
This Manual is really two sets of instructions in one - some sections are relevant to all Brice
food processing machines, while other sections only concern a particular machine or range
of machines.
Make sure that you read this Manual carefully so that you are familiar with the features and
procedures that are unique to the machine that came with it.
How this Manual is arranged
This Manual is made up of five sections:
•
•
•
•
•
Introduction - which explains the Manual, itself, safety issues associated with using a
chopper, gives a brief introduction to the features and components of the chopper and
steps you through the installation of the machine;
Operation - explains the use of the chopper, including pre-operational checks;
Cleaning - explains the procedures for keeping the chopper clean;
Maintenance - details those procedures that you can perform to ensure the trouble-free
operation of the chopper; and
Trouble shooting - details some malfunctions and how to fix them.
Conventions and Symbols used in this Manual
To reduce confusion, and to highlight important points and safety matters, we have
established some standard terms and symbols:
•
•
•
Model CHEF Vegetable Choppers
“chopper”
Whenever we talk about the chopper, we mean the chopper that is covered in this
Manual.
“foodstuff”
We use the word “foodstuff” to refer to any kind of food that is usually chopped using
the chopper.
“inlet shute” or “input feeder”
We use these terms to refer to the opening in the top of the machine in which foodstuff
should be placed.

SAFETY
WARNINGS
The Special Note flag
This is an upside-down triangle with an exclamation mark inside it. It appears in the left
margin of the page, like this, whenever we want to draw your attention to an important
point.
The “No Hands” warning flag
This is a circle with the outline of a hand and a black bar through the hand. It appears
wherever we want to warn you that either: you shouldn’t put your hands in or near a
particular component; or that you must wear steel mesh protective gloves to carry out
a particular procedure.
The “Power” warning flags
There are two power warning flags. The first, a lightning bolt inside an upside-down
triangle, is used whenever we want to remind and warn you that the slicer is connected
to the mains power supply. The second warning flag is a circle with the outline of a
lighting bolt and a black bar through the bolt. It appears to remind you that a particular
procedure must be carried out with the power to the slicer turned off at the powerpoint
and the slicer’s power plug disconnected from the powerpoint.
This is an electrical device that uses mains (either single phase 240 Volt or 3 phase 380
Volt) power. It uses a high speed rotating blade that is extremely sharp. You must be careful
in how you handle the slicer at all times. The following special warnings must be complied
with for your own safety and the safety of others.
THERE ARE NO USER-SERVICEABLE ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS IN THIS FOOD
PROCESSOR. ALL ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS ARE ELECTRICALLY ISOLATED TO
EARTH AND ARE SEALED FOR YOUR SAFETY. YOU MUST NOT ATTEMPT TO TOUCH ANY
ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS OR WIRES - YOU MAY EXPOSE YOURSELF TO THE RISK OF
SERIOUS INJURY BY ELECTROCUTION.
UNLESS OTHERWISE INDICATED, ANY CLEANING OR MAINTENANCE PROCEDURE
MUST BE PERFORMED WITH THE POWER TO THE CHOPPER SWITCHED OFF AND THE
CHOPPER’S POWER CORD DISCONNECTED FROM THE POWERPOINT. FAILURE TO
TURN OFF AND DISCONNECT POWER MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY CAUSED BY
THE SLICER BEING ACCIDENTLY TURNED ON DURING CLEANING OR MAINTENANCE.
Chopper blades are extremely sharp and can cut through fingers and hands just as easily as
products to be sliced.
WHENEVER YOU CARRY OUT ANY PROCEDURE THAT PLACES YOUR HANDS ON
OR NEAR THE CHOPPER BLADES YOU MUST WEAR SUITABLE PROTECTIVE HAND
COVERINGS SUCH AS STEEL MESH GLOVES TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL INJURY.

Installing the
Chopper
Positioning the chopper
No matter where you put the chopper, you must allow at least as much space as the overall
dimensions indicate. Allowing an additional minimum of 30cm either side of the chopper
will make access for cleaning and maintenance easier.
Make sure that the surface that you intend placing the chopper on is solid, flat, level, dry
and smooth. Ideally the mounting surface should be between 40cm and 50cm high for
operator comfort.
Electrical connections
The chopper connects to either a single phase 240 Volts or a 3 phase 380 Volts power
supply using the power cord supplied. Simply connect the plug on the end of the power
cord to the powerpoint.

Introduction 1.3
™
Operation and Safety Manual
If you don’t know whether the chopper uses single phase or 3 phase power, check the
identification label on the machine - it will indicate the voltage rating.
Cleaning and function check
Before you use the chopper, we recommend that you wipe down all exposed surfaces with
a soft cloth that has been placed in clean warm water and light detergent and squeezed dry.
This will remove any traces of machine oil, dirt or grit picked up during manufacture or
storage.
Before you wipe down the machine, make sure that the power is turned off at the wall
socket/powerpoint.
Once the chopper is clean you can check that it is functioning correctly.
1. Switch on power to the machine from the wall socket/powerpoint.
2. Make sure that the chopper is turned off at the power switch on the side of the
machine.
3. Open the chopper cover by turning the knurled knob (located in front and to the right of
the input feeder) anti-clockwise until it releases.
4. Raise the cover and place the supplied plastic ejector disk over the drive spindle - it
may be keyed to the spindle on some models. There is no need to place a blade disk in
the chopper for this check.
5. Close the cover and secure it by turning the knurled knob clockwise until it is tight.
6. Remove the smaller plunger from the top of the feeder reducer and look down into the
throat of the chopper so that the chopper balde is visible.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO THIS WHEN THERE IS A BLADE MOUNTED IN THE CHOPPER.
7. Turn the chopper on using the power switch on the side of the machine. Immediately
the chopper blade will spin in an anti-clockwise direction.
8. Turn the chopper off at the power switch.
The CHEF chopper is now ready to use.

Things to keep in mind
1. Only use the large or small plunger supplied to push the vegetables into the chopper.
2. The recommended, and only safe way of changing blades is with the power
switched off at the powerpoint.
3. Apply a steady pressure to the plunger when using the chopper. Sudden heavy
pressure may cause a jam as the blade discs try to deal with too much foodstuff
being forced into contact with the cutting surfaces.
4. DO NOT place frozen foodstuffs, or foodstuffs containing bones, inthe chopper.
These will only damage the blades.
Standard operation
1. Turn the cover securing knob (7) anti-clockwise and open the cover.
2. Slide the plastic ejecting disc over the drive spindle, and then the chosen cutting disc or,
for dicing, the chosen dicing disc, followed by the chosen cutting disc for the job.
Use the Disc Selector Guide on the next page to help you decide which disc to use.
3. Close and secure the cover by turning the cover securing knob clockwise.
This will disengage the safety cutout and allow the machine to run.
4. Press the ON/OFF button momentarily to hook the disc into the correct position.
5. Raise the feeder reducer (4) on its guide post and swing it aside from the inlet feeder
(3). Place the foodstuff inside the inlet feeder, swing the reducer back over feeder and
lower it until it comes in contact with the foodstuff.
For smaller foodstuffs, simply remove the small plunger from the feeder reducer, insert
the foodstuff in the throat of the smaller inlet, and replace the plunger.
6. Turn the machine on using the ON/OFF button.
7. With your left hand lightly move the feeder plunger downwards until foodstuff is fully
processed. You may continue to introduce more foodstuff by lifting the handle and
placing foodstuff into the inlet shute. The machine will start automatically when the
handle is closed.

Chopper
™
This section deals with cleaning your chopper.
We recommend that, before cleaning or maintenance tasks are undertaken, the machine
operator(s) receive some training from authorised Brice representatives, preferably during
the installation phase.
Before carrying out cleaning or maintenance tasks, it is important that power to the
chopper is disconnected at the powerpoint.
General Cleaning
The chopper has been designed and built for efficient and speedy cleaning to ensure
hygenic operation.
Before using the chopper
1. Before the chopper is switched on for the first time each day, quickly wipe over all
exposed surfaces with a cloth that has been placed in warm water and squeezed dry.
This removes any dust or other matter that may have been deposited over night.
After each cutting job
1. Remove the discs, the grid for cutting dices and the plastic ejector disc and wash
thoroughly in warm water and mild detergent.
2. Wipe down exposed portions of the machine and the area where the discs rest, with a
cloth that has been placed in warm water and mild detergent and squeezed dry. Be sure
to clean off any foodstuff that has adhered to the inside top of the machine cover and
the output chute.
At the end of the day
1. After the chopper has been used for the last time, turn the machine off at the power
switch and at the powerpoint, and disconnect the power cord.
2. Turn the the cover securing knob anti-clockwise to open the cover, loosen the two
cover release knobs at the back to remove the cover completely. Wash in warm water
and a mild detergent.
3. Remove the discs, the grid for cutting dices and the plastic ejector disc and wash
thoroughly in warm water and mild detergent.
4. With a cloth that has been placed in warm water and mild detergent and squeezed dry,
wipe down all visible surfaces, including where the cutting discs rest.
How frequently the chopper is cleaned will depend on how heavily the machine is used.
However, we recommend that you adopt the following cleaning schedule as a MINIMUM
requirement to maintain hygiene.
