Vegetable Dicers

Vegetable Dicers

And that is the Nemco Easy Chopper Vegetable Dicer. Let’s take a closer look. First, we offer both the standard Easy Chopper and the Easy Chopper II for larger vegetables. We stock both of these with cut sizes of 3/8 of an inch and quarter inch, and the Easy Chopper II also comes in a half inch cut size. Now onions aren’t the only veggies that these things will chop. Let’s say you wanted to chop a cucumber. First thing you do is slice these ends off here to make nice square ends. Put your cucumber in the Easy Chopper and press down, and you have these beautiful little batons here. Now, if you would want to dice this, all you’ll have to do is gather up your batons, stack them in a line, cut them so they’ll fit, and you can see, perfect dice. How about a tomato? This tomato is a little large. You can see I already cored it. I’m going to just cut it in half, and then I’m going to put it in the Easy Chopper just like so. Put it right down on the blade. Be careful not to cut yourself. And then you’re just going to punch it right down. You can see how easily that chopped it. Now if you want to make it a finer dice, just put these pieces back on top, and you can see what kind of nice dice we got out of that. Perfect for making salsa. Now the next thing I’m going to dice is a potato. I’m going to dice this up for some soup. First thing I’m going to do though is I’m going to cut this in half, so when I go to make the batons they are going to be small enough to put back on this dicer grid. You can see what I’m going to do right here is just put it right there. Now sometimes with something like a potato, it’s going to take two pushes to get this through here, but let’s see how this goes. There you can see how that worked. Now you just take your batons that you made, now this makes perfect French fries this way if I put the whole potato in, it would make nice long fries. But if you want to see a nice dice here, just go like this, make sure they are all on the grid, keep your hand out then, and you can see what a perfect dice that is. The blades and pusher blocks are very long lasting on the Nemco Easy Chopper, but if you wanted to change either of those, you can find them in the companion items section of this page. To take the blade assembly off, just remove the pusher block assembly, and then you will just pull these rubber stoppers up off the guide posts. Once that’s done, you can take just your blade assembly, and slide it up the guide posts. You can either do this to clean it or if you wanted to change this whole assembly you can go ahead and put your new assembly on. Now, if you wanted to change the pusher block or the individual blades within this assembly, you can find short videos on how to do that in the item descriptions for those products.

How To Replace the Pusher Block On Your Nemco Easy Chopper

How To Replace the Pusher Block On Your Nemco Easy Chopper

To change the pusher block on the Nemco Easy Chopper, simply lift the pusher block assembly off, and you’ll see there are these thumb screws on either side. Go ahead and unscrew those, and these are very easy to do, they make this very simple for you. There you go, and it’s as easy as that. We are going to go ahead and get our new assembly, and you’re going to see you have those two areas right there where you will screw it back in, and you have the two screw holes right there, so line those up. Set it down like so, and go ahead and screw that back in. And that’s all there is to it as far as changing the pusher block on your Nemco Easy chopper.

    chopper easy great tomatoes onions clean dice Nemco blades Cut

    This item is terrible....it compacts tomatoes or onions into a pulp and is very difficult to return. With return shipping and a restocking fee it doesn't really make s sense to return it. Please don't waste your money.

    This Nemco veggie chopper is perfect for maintaining consistency with our chopped vegetables. It makes chopping large amounts easy and less time consuming. We will never be without it!

    Our restaurant has used this model of Nemco Dicer for almost eight years on a daily basis to dice tomatoes. The original is almost worn out after eight years and we were not hesitant to order another of the same 55500 model. A great product!

    Posted on

    This Nemco Easy Chopper is great, although I strongly recommend the larger Easy Chopper 3 instead. It's wider cutting area can fit larger onions and bell peppers, whereas this Easy Chopper 1 requires you to first cut your vegetables in half in order to fit the chopping space. But it's a great design, and I bought both this model and the newer one.

    This is and awesome chopper if you wanna make your life easier and save a lot of time in the kitchen this is the way to go a great advantage to have this tool in our kitchen

    from sergio's Posted on

    Great slicer. It puts less wear and tear on the employee and has a smooth chop. We chop onions on it daily and it needs new blades every few weeks. Even with the cost of replacing the blades it is well worth the price.

    Posted on

    Heavy duty and takes a beating! I like how easy it is to disassemble to clean. I haven't had to reorder a blade and its been over a year!

    Cut labor in half with this machine. We use it for pico de gallo, mango salsa, and to dice tomatoes. Easy to clean. Easy to store

    Simply Awesome, the chopper is just as it says EASY! It takes care of everything that we put at it. Purchasing more will definitely be on our list to do!

    this chopper is ok it chopper my vegetables ok put i have to push it up and down 5 times be for the price it is good .

    from Zackey joe's Posted on

    I'm not a religious man, but, halleluja! For the last year, I've spent an hour and a half each morning dicing tomatoes. I have to admit that I was skeptical that this gizmo would be able to dice tomatoes without clogging on the skin or otherwise smushing the tomato flesh, but it proved me wrong. And thank goodness! I just diced 40 tomatoes (after coring, quartering and gutting) in eight minutes! Not only that, it's a beautiful, tight little 1/4" dice that looks better than if I had chopped it by hand! And if you consider that I would otherwise be paying someone $10 an hour to do what this thing does, it's going to pay for itself in about a week. Thank you, Nemco! I think I'll go to sleep tonight clutching this thing like a teddy bear!

    from Bender's Burritos LLC Posted on

    Big time saver! This has cut our labor a great deal, can dice a case of tomatoes in no time flat. Works great with onions, green peppers and all other veg. Have used for the last few months and has been a great addition!

    Love the easy chopper, great to work with, saves time and effort. Easy prep and easy clean up. So far no problems with blades in the grid

    liked it . fast shipping and nice stuff .. affordable prices ..no damages at all over all very happy with the stuff . will shop with this store again..thanks

    This item is not sharp enough to cut onions. even when you slam down on the handle it still will not push the onion through the grate.

    from loveland chef Posted on

    The excellent price point of this item makes it one of our most popular vegetable dicers. We also carry a specific onion cutter which is a heavy duty, one-stroke cutter. Please see our item 591N55700 if you're interested.

    Chopper works well and operates smoothly. Difficult to clean and could use a specific cleaning tool as part of the package. Blade stays sharp and cutting is uniform.

    from The Fresh Batch Posted on

    This is a great chopper. I cant add up how much time its saved me over the years. Squirt a little oil on the guides and it works even better.

    from The new haven cafe Posted on

    The Easy Chopper cuts quickly, saves a lot of time, and is easy to clean, but it gets a little messy with tomatoes. I think it's a good product, and I'm happy with the purchase.

    from Lucas Lucas industries Posted on

    Great product for the money. Less expensive from webstaurant store than other distributors. Shipping charges very reasonable.One distributor claims lowest prices, and the dicer itself was ten dollars cheaper, but the shipping was twenty three dollars more.

    Posted on

    I absolutely wouldn't be without my Nemco chopper. I do large quanities of home canning and this heavy duty chopper is easy to use and completely trustworthy. Just the feel of the chopper lets a person know that it is heavy duty and will chop anything in nice, precise pieces. This is a must have for any kitchen.

    from Honse farms Posted on

    I have ordered this item more then once, it is very durable, and works very efficient. The price was much better then other web sites. highly recomend to all

    from THE SQUIRE Posted on

    It simplifies the job of chopping fruit or vegetables. It provides uniformity. It is simple to use. Wash right away and is easy to clean.
