Brieftons QuickPush Chopper Review

Updated on August 14, 2016

What is the QuickPush Chopper ?

The Quickpush chopper is a kitchen product designed by the company Brieftons. They manufacture and produce a variety of useful kitchen items. I chose the Quickpush chopper because of its interesting design, aesthetically it looked good and I have never used a chopper with this kind of design. I have tried a few choppers such as, the the quick pull choppers, and the ones where you have to continuously push a button to operate it. This one appeared to be more convenient and easy to use. So, let me tell you what the buying experience was like, and also whether or not I actually liked the product in the end.

My Buying Experience with Brieftons

Ok, so I bought the Quickpush chopper on a Monday. It arrived swiftly on a Wednesday morning. Also, prior to purchasing the chopper, I did actually contact Brieftons via Amazon to ask them a few questions about the product. The answered my questions in good time, they were polite and transparent, so to me this was a good sign. Anyway, so that was my buying experience with Brieftons, no complaints at all. So, at this point I can go on to tell you what I actually thought about the product itself.

What did I think of the QuickPush Chopper

The Quickpush chopper is marketed as a food chopper and cheese cutter. I actually only bought it to help me chop vegetables. But when I got it, I did actually use it for cutting cheese, and I will tell you about that shortly.

First Impressions


The chopper was packaged well, nice box, neatly packed. Upon taking it out of the box, it looked good, made with white and green plastic. It has 3 blades altogether, one for chopping, one for slicing, and one for dicing. It also comes with this little tool that kind of looks like a comb, it is actually a cleaning tool, which came in very handy in fact.

Set Up

Setting up was relatively straightforward, it really isn't rocket science. The only thing you really have to do is slot the blade into the blade compartment and fit the produce catcher and that is it. It literally took seconds to do that.

Using it

To use it, the first thing you must do is cut the vegetable so it is small enough to fit underneath the lid. Position it on to the blade, then close the lid and push down. That is it, the first vegetable I tried to cut, was an onion. It was a large red onion, I cut it in half first to ensure that it would fit nicely underneath the lid. Then I pushed down once, and it chopped straight away, I used the dicing blade for one half. Then I used the chopping blade for the half, I then tried using the slicing blade to chop a potato, and it worked brilliantly. I experimented several times with all the different blades to see how sharp they all were. I had no problems, even with the toughest of vegetables.

Slicing Cheese

I attempted to slice some cheese with the slicing blade and the dicing blade. I found it was perfect with the slicing blade. Not so great with the chopping or dicing blades, but when I tried a firmer cheese, the dicing blade and the slicing blade worked really well.





How About Fruit?

I tried chopping 3 different types of fruit, using all 3 blades. I attempted with a large apple, first I had to chop it in half and I did remove the seeds before attempting to chop. It was perfect for apples, then tried with a pear, and with some grapes. The chopping blade is best for grapes, the dicing and chopping blades are best for apples and pears. The slicing blade is not too great for any of the fruit that I tried.

How About Cleaning ?

I definitely don't like this part, because I don't enjoy cleaning. But the question is, how easy is it to clean? Well, it does come with this handy cleaning tool so it makes it much easier to clean. You first need to use the tool to remove any excess debris from the teeth and the blades. Then you can wash it quite easily with warm soapy water. It does actually say that you can wash it in a dishwasher but I would recommend that you wash it in a dishwasher. It is not that difficult to wash so washing it by hand shouldn't be a problem. I also have not noticed any rusting with the blades yet, which is great. They are made from stainless steel so rusting really should not be a problem.

Pros and Cons of the QuickPush Chopper

So, what are the pros and cons of the QuickPush Chopper?


Pros

  • Good value for money
  • User friendly
  • Sharp blades
  • Convenient
  • Quick
  • Looks nice
  • Good quality

Cons

  • Needs to be able to accommodate more fruit and veg
  • Needs a wider selection of blades


Ok, so the Quickpush does have some cons, I don't think that any product is ever going to be perfect. I think that it somehow needs to be larger so you can chop more vegetables at any given time. But it is still a lot faster than chopping everything by hand anyway, so in my opinion, it is a big thumbs up! I will be reviewing more Brieftons products soon, as well as products from other manufacturers.
