Nemco is one of the best Veg Cutters used! Quick, precise, and easy! Interchangeable grid blades makes for different shapes and sizes at the best quality. Thank You for a Great product!

Michael M. from E-Z Edge, Inc on 10/03/2018

A kitchen tool I would not want to live without! If you are in need of citrus wedges in bulk, this tool is absolutely necessary. Have used the same wedger for years and need to replace the blade probably once per year with heavy usage.

Ethan M. from Portland Lobster Company on 09/22/2018

The Nemco wedger cutter/slicer is a top of the line slicer for anyone who needs to slice fruits or vegetables quickly and efficiently. We use it in our business on a regular basis to slice lemons, limes, and oranges for our fresh squeezed fruit drinks!

Bernard R. on 02/19/2018

This is life changing. I can cut like 2 cases of lemons in 20 minutes and this used to take our prep chef over an hour. That is money saved right there.

Kim H. on 12/06/2017

The Nemco 8 wedge slicer is a very durable product. It really cuts down on the prep time on cutting lemons and limes. I would recommend

We use nemco items for many things in the kitchen. This weedier works great and last a long time , GOod price and holds up well.

Steven G. on 04/27/2016

There is no reason to waste your servers time or fingers having them hand slice lemons. You will get a better yield this way and save a lot of time. It is a little pricey for convenience but I would never run without one of these!

Emily W. on 03/02/2016

Great price on a great product for wedging veggies. We also use it to wedge lemons to serve with our fish dishes. Great product that we love!

Lisa M. from Zeppe's Pizzeria on 01/18/2016

We love this wedge cutter, it is very easy to use. The eight wedges come out perfect every time, even with older fruit or vegetables. Also very easy to clean, great cutter!

James S. from Supplies By Nitelite on 01/11/2016

I had to buy a new knife piece for our and after looking at the price I said to heck with that and spent a little more and bought this, still working very well for us.

Joyce B. from Breezy Point International on 09/01/2015

This product is a life saver when you have to slice up hundreds of lemons and oranges everyday. Thank goodness for this slicer, it has made everything much easier.

Andranik G. from Smash It Up on 08/04/2015

If you need a quick and easy way to cut lemons this is the perfect solution. Heck, my employees now fight over who gets to cut the lemons. This item works great and is one of the best purchases I have made on Webstaurantstore so far.

Tyler L. from Skippers on 02/10/2014

What a time saver. We use this for a couple of different recipes with tomatoes. One with Roma tomatoes and one with 6X6 tomatoes. It works great and doesn't crush the tomatoes. Cuts perfect every time.

Randall S. from Sbarro Pizzeria on 11/04/2012

Very consistent and reliable. This adds a much needed level of consistency to my catering operation. You can easily purchase replacement blades which is a plus.

Purchasing I. from Iacofano's on 03/30/2012

Bought for wedging cucumber or pickles to make Russian Dill Pickles. Works great and it saves alot of slicing time. Also have used to make wedged potatoes. Great Item.
