Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0158652A1] The invention relates to a device for chopping foodstuffs, such as onions or similar, comprising a housing (1-3), which may be placed over the goods to be chopped and a downwardly displaceable knife (19), guided in the housing (1-3), which may be operated against the force of a spring (14), by means of an operating mechanism (9), with a push button (12) and a plunger (11). The knife (19) is rotated through an angle during the upwards displacement, by the guide in the housing (1-3) and the rotation induced by the operating mechanism (9), relative to the housing (1-3), is restricted to one direction by means of a forced step advancer (15, 16). The operating mechanism comprises a novel cap (40), open at the bottom, in which the push button (12) is rotatably mounted, whereby push button (12) and cap (40) are rigidly connected in the axial direction.
