The first thing to do is remove the blade safety and wash everything in soap and warm water. This is my rule with anything that touches food. Removing the blade cover was a bit tricky. The directions aren't too specific, but you can see how I did it in my video. All it says is "remove the cutting rotor from the protective cover", but if you take the rotor out of the bowl, put it down on a flat surface, and pull up the column, it should be fairly simple. Be VERY careful when doing this. The bottom-most fin component detaches (it's called the booster arm). Save the cover for storage and transport.
I tested with an onion and a small carrot. For the onion, I cut into quarter chunks on one side. Half an onion was too difficult for the Zyliss. The manual says to coarse chop the ingredients first. Softer things will require less pre-chopping.
The pull cord movement is very easy and intuitive. A plastic o-ring on the bottom of the jar reduces slippage. It hardly felt like work, and after a few quick pulls, I had evenly chopped onions for my lentil stew. The same with carrots. 4 or 5 pulls was all I needed for a quick coarse chop. For a finer chop (to mix into meatballs, for example), more pulls. The innovation here is that Zyliss uses a free spinning middle blade, instead of fixed blades at opposite angles. The rotor's booster arm throws food up into the path of the spinning blade. This helps create more turbulence and food gets chopped very fast. I hated my previous food processors because the blades only spun in one direction. Food keeps spinning in one direction, instead of getting chopped. Small bits get progressively pulverized while bigger bits spun around, forcing me to stop midway through and smack the bowl or redistribute the ingredients with a utensil. The booster arm and counter-spinning blades solve all of that (and the Proctor & Silex is going in the garbage).
Great fun and very convenient, I like this product quite a lot! Not needing electricity means this is suitable for camping trips and outdoors, and for older people who have dexterity problems, this is a great kitchen helper.

UPDATE: 1/5/2016 - I continue to enjoy using this product. Yesterday, I crushed some roasted Planters peanuts to sprinkle over a Thai noodle dish I made. I used to coarse chop them with a kitchen knife, but this makes it so much more fun (and much less work)!
I use mine to make organic walnut butter. It takes about a minute, is absolutely fresh, is about half the cost of buying ready-made, and eliminates packaging (normally glass jar + lid). Ingredients: organic walnuts. That's it. 3 pulls yields chopped nuts, but for my purposes I give it 30 pulls to yield a nice fine texture about like brown sugar. I store my "walnut dust" in a reusable container in the fridge. At breakfast, I drizzle olive oil on toast, then put a spoonful of my walnut dust on the bread and spread it around with the back of the spoon. Tastes great as is, or top it with cinnamon. At first I assumed I'd add some oil to make the consistency more like peanut butter (which you can do by adding an oil of your choice), but I prefer the mealy dust consistency for simplicity's sake: faster to make, no mess to clean up, easier to store, zero waste.
New topic: I routinely make one dish skillet meals using half a dozen or so different veggies, and I initially bought this hoping to speed up veggie prep, but I wasn't thrilled with the results for that purpose. Within the first few pulls, you end up with partly pureed mush and partly unchopped pieces. If you keep pulling to make the big pieces smaller, you end up with ever more mush...more like a smoothie. Cooked veggie smoothie anyone? Exactly. So I'd recommend using this for things you want to puree...salad dressings, marinades, sauces, dessert toppings, guacamole...and of course it's great for chopping nuts. For veggies though, I went back to using a knife.
Would definitely buy again. Has paid for itself many times over.
