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.

Jill R. from Rocket Taco on 07/09/2016

Thank you for the review, Jill. We're sorry that you're not happy with this unit! A Customer Solutions Representative will be in contact with you shortly.

It’s a nice dicer as long as the blades are razor sharp... if not it pretty much juices it into a pulp. I still prefer a knife to it, but it’s wonderful for someone without safe knife skills or without the desire to learn any.

Levi K. on 12/13/2017

I tried this at a friend's shop and cannot wait to get my own. This made prep so easy and can do so many servings in minutes. Couldn't think of one veggie that I couldn't use this for.

Kim H. on 08/23/2017

Nemco Easy Chopper Vegetable Dicer is highly approved. With easy interchangeable cutters it makes choice cutting a snap for your all your customer's high demands.

Michael M. from E-Z Edge, Inc on 02/17/2017

This thing is super amazing! I use it daily at my hot dog stand to chop up onions, it takes SECONDS to chop an entire onion! A must have!

Stephanie M. from Hometown Hotdogs on 01/21/2017

This is he most solid piece of machinery. Awesome and easy to clean. Make sure you oil your rubber stoppers or over time you will need to replace

Maryanne B. on 11/28/2016

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!

Manda C. on 05/13/2016

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!

Bill L. on 05/12/2016

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.

Kevin W. from Baba Kevin's American Barbecue Co., Ltd. on 04/02/2016

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

Sergio P. from Sergio's on 03/27/2016

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.

Nathaniel S. on 07/28/2015

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!

James K. on 06/05/2015

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

Bruce J. on 05/30/2015

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!

Herman H. from HJS SERVICES on 03/10/2015

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 .

Jonathan D. from Zackey Joe's on 09/23/2014

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!

Henry B. from Bender's Burritos LLC on 07/23/2014

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!

Per H. on 05/13/2013

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

Cengizhan K. on 04/09/2013

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

Aman S. on 08/19/2012

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.

Tamara W. from Loveland Chef on 07/30/2012

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.

Drew E. from The Fresh Batch on 05/03/2012

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.

Aaron H. from The New Haven Cafe on 09/20/2011

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.

Philip E. from Lucas Lucas Industries on 08/07/2011

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.

John Z. on 08/04/2011

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.

Jane H. from Honse Farms on 07/30/2011

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

David M. from THE SQUIRE on 06/07/2011

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.
