These usually have motor that is contained in small base that turns cylinder-shaped blade known as drum. The drum can have different patterns cut into the surface that will chop food in different ways. Above the drum, there may be small chute that is used to feed ingredients into the handheld food processors, where gravity will push the food against the drum. The chopped food drops into the center of the drum and then rolls out of the machine through another chute once processed.
