User guide for a vegetable cutter
Here’s an example of where a technical writer could have helped in the presentation, sale and support of a product. These instructions are printed on the box containing a tool which produces pretty twirly strings of onion, carrot, or whatever:
Below is a reproduction of the text. I’ve changed it to mixed case for easier reading:
How to use: Before using this cutter, remove all coverage of the onion etc. and cut the both (top & bottom) insert the rod in between the onion. Then place the blade (funner) on the head of rod, so you move round the threads. Handle it round & round, upto the bottom. You will get the round chips, nice & fine. You can make the chips of potatos, radish, carrot, beet, if you do not need the chips with hole, you hold & grip the article beside the rod. And move the funner blade around up to end you will get a nice & beautiful chips like a chain and cut it centrally.
Note: If the blade is not sharp, make it sharp on the grinding stone only on one side as before. And if other diffect or damage, report to our sales agents or dealers. They will help you. If it is not repairable a new set will supply in replacement of the presented set. Thanks: You can purchase at all crockery dealers & shops
