Implements (object genre)
This chopping machine is an example of the many 19th century inventions to make food preparation easier. The meat or vegetables to be chopped were placed in the bowl and the handle was cranked. The chopping blade moved up and down while the bowl rotated, so that the blade hit a different portion of the food each time.
