Slicing tomatoes has never been faster or easier than with the Nemco 55600-1 3/16" Easy Tomato Slicer.

Manually prepping foods is tedious and time-consuming work, so help your kitchen staff spend less time at the cutting board and more time doing other productive tasks with this tomato slicer! It's designed to divide a tomato into 3/16" slices in mere seconds, delivering a level of precision, speed, consistency, and safety that you just can't get with a chef knife.

    Food Recommendation

    This unit has been tested to consistently cut high volumes of strawberries and tomatoes.

3/16" Slices

This unit is designed to create 3/16" tomato slices, which are great for hamburgers, subs, and sandwiches. You can also quickly make slices for use in your prep refrigerator's topping rail, or put a pan of fresh tomatoes out on the salad bar! Best of all, you can change the cut thickness by switching out the blade assembly and the pusher (both sold separately) of another cut size.

Stainless Steel Blades

The blades on this unit are made from durable 301 stainless steel, allowing them to stay razor sharp for longer and keep you slicing without worry. Specially-placed guards protect your hands from injury during use.

Ergonomic Handle

The ergonomic push handle on this unit allows you to slice high volumes of tomatoes with minimal strain or effort.

Poly Slide Board

A polyethylene slide board and self-lubricating track design make slicing one, fluid motion.

Prevents Slipping

This slicer comes with a set of rubber feet and a table stop to help keep it secure and stable during operation.

Built for Precision, Easy Use, and Safety

This machine is perfect if you find yourself slicing lots of tomatoes on a daily basis, because it can divide a tomato in a fraction of the time it takes to do this task manually. It cuts the tomatoes into consistent slices for minimal waste and uses a pusher mechanism that keeps your hands away from the blade, unlike manual knife prep. Additionally, anyone can use it - it can take time to train a new employee how to cut tomatoes efficiently with a knife and to develop an eye for the right cut size, but this machine lets a new employee make perfect slices on day 1.

Tomato Slicer

Stop wasting precious time in the kitchen slicing tomatoes with a knife! With a Nemco Easy Slicer, you can cut all different sizes and shapes of tomatoes so whether you're serving hamburgers, subs, or salads, you get the perfect tomato every time.

Whether you serve hamburgers, subs, or salads, a tomato slicer is an essential tool for your kitchen. Hi I’m Steve Ziegler, product expert at the Webstaurant store. Today I’m going to be demonstrating the use and care of the Nemco easy tomato slicer. First I wanted to mention, if you’re looking for a value-priced unit, we do have this imported tomato slicer which is great for light to medium duty applications. This is a terrific unit at a very low price. Most of what I tell you about the Nemco unit will apply to this one as well. The biggest difference is that this is not NSF approved, while the Nemco Easy Slicer is an NSF model. Now if you are looking for a very heavy duty unit, we have this Nemco Easy Tomato Slicer II available as well. First, let’s take a closer look at the Nemco Easy Tomato Slicer. The first thing you’ll notice about this unit is that it has a very small footprint. It’s only 8” wide by 15” long. It’s compact and very portable. The heavy rubber feat and the table stop will prevent this unit from moving around while we work. To operate, we are going to move this pusher back towards me, take our tomato with the core removed, and place it on the board. I’m going to put my left hand on top of this blade holder, and with my right hand I’m going to grab this handle. Now let’s see why they call this the easy tomato slicer. Isn’t that easy? We have 3/16 inch for the slightly thicker 1/4 inch slice styles available. They’re not interchangeable though, so if for some reason you need two different thicknesses of tomato, you’ll have to buy two. Let’s do a few more tomatoes and see how fast we can fill up this prep table pan. You can use larger tomatoes, and you can use tiny tomatoes. All different types and sizes will go right through this unit. And there you have it! If you’ve been using a knife all of this time, you can see how much time you’ve been wasting. The other question that we often get with tomato slicers is how to replace the blades. Although these blades are long-lasting, they will dull over time. You can find the correct blades by looking in the companion items for your tomato slicer. It’s always a good idea to have a spare set of blades. So when you order a slicer, order a spare set of blades. If you click on item details, for the easy slicer blade, you can view a video that will show you how to change out the blades.

Tomato Slicer Blade Replacement

Need to replace the blade on your tomato slicer? Check out this step-by-step visual demonstration to learn how!

Changing blades on your tomato slicer is a quick and easy way to make your old tomato slicer cut like it’s brand new. Here are some easy instructions. First, remove the thumb screws and the slide stop from the end of your slide board. Then you’ll remove the pusher block assembly. You’ll see, this just slides right off. Next, remove the blade holder assembly by unscrewing the hex-head bolts on either side of the blade holder casting. Now be careful removing the blade holder assembly so that you don’t touch the sharp edges of the blades. Now, take your new blade set assembly, and insert the blades into the casting with the sharp side toward where the pusher assembly normally sits. Make sure the holes at either end of the assembly align with the holes of the blade holder casting. First, insert the two hex-head screws on the right end of the blade holder, nearest the words “caution sharp blades.” Fully tighten these two, alternating a quarter turn until they are fully tightened. Then, install the screws on the other side of the casting. Again, tighten each screw a quarter turn, alternating until fully tightened. Finally, reinstall the pusher block assembly by simply sliding it on. Once you’ve done that, you can move the pusher block through the blade set to make sure it’s installed properly. Then you’ll reinstall the slide stop with the thumb screws. Now that you’ve seen how easy it is to change the blades on your tomato slicer, I have one more recommendation: You must have an extra set of blades on hand at all times. You never know what could happen, and if you count on sliced tomatoes, you can really make your life easier by having an extra set of blades.

    We purchased a cheaper off brand version of this product first and it broke within 2 uses. This product has proved to be more durable and of better quality.

    This is a must have for any kitchen using tomatoes. Easy to clean and use, makes the chore of slicing tomatoes much easier and faster.

    Nemco 55600-1 3/16" Easy Tomato Slicer

    Nemco Easy Tomato Slicer makes slicing tomatoes a breeze. I can slice what would have taken me 15 minutes of slicing tomatoes in under a minute with this slicer. A definite must have for any business going through tomatoes.

    Nemco Tomato Slicer, Works Perfect.

    We use this daily it works wonders! I have used it since 2013 and I have never had any issues. It is heavy duty and it works like a champ!

    from New Deli Posted on

    These are great units. We have 3. 2 are nemcos. We got a Choice and its exactly the same, but didnt have the serrated edge and the slide is rough. To fix the arm of our nemco and blades, it was not much more to get a whole new unit.

    from Secret spot Posted on

    Very good Quality!! Highly recommend for heavy users. I will buy it again for next restaurants in near future. Enjoy this good quality item. Cut well.

    I purchased this to be able to maintain food cost control along with consistency of our outgoing product. I couldn't be more happy with the outcome.

    from Revolution cafe Posted on

    we like nemco products and we use this a lot . We cut a lot of tomatoes. ITs USA made its a great piece for the price.

    This tomato slicer is amazing! It makes slicing tomatos easy for everyone. The only issue that we have had is that the blades tend to bend easily, just make sure all of the screws stay tight.

    from Mr. Pickle's Sandwich Shop Posted on

    These Tomato slicer is easy to use , until the springs break which happens to us every 3 months. We've had to replace these twice already. So we are basically paying a lot per year for tomato slicers .mawesome and easy until it breaks

    Thank you for the review, Eric. We do apologize that the springs have not help up for you on this slicer. We'd like to remind you that this is under a one-year warranty. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you about credit for this.

    This is an excellent product. Very durable and extremely sharp blades. Allows for consistent slices of tomato and is great at helping to control cost and waste.

    The Nemco Easy Slicer is very easy to use as you just put the tomato in the one side slide the handle over and then take it out of the other side. The slices are perfectly even and look like they were sliced professionally. Saves a lot of time over manually sliced tomatoes. Would recommend.

    The Nemco 566002 Easy Tomato Slicer II truly is a "Easy Tomato Slicer" it cuts tomato like your slicing through butter. It's never been so easy

    from Shawna B Posted on

    Good Slicer, worth cost. Blades bend very quickly if you attempt to slice onions, good investment unless you have staff that can't follow rules. Easy to clean

    from Union St Diner Posted on

    If you want to save money and get a consistent and great looking product - try this. Very economical addition to your prep line for the perfect slices every time. Easy cleanup.

    This slicer saves us so much time on usual everyday prep for the morning. When you have to cut 10 six pans of tomato for dinner it cuts down time alot.

    Posted on

    We recently changed to this Nemco slicer from a Lincoln. It cost a lot less and works so much better! We use 3/16" thin slice and it cuts uniform thin slices without crushing or damaging the tomatoes. A must have for any high volume sandwich operation.

    Posted on

    I used to buy these used because I didn't feel they were worth the money. I wish I had all the time back that was spent hand slicing. Buy this new so you know the blades are sharp.

    from Iacofano's Posted on

    This tomato slicer is amazing! Slices the tomatoes so thin and with one swift push, you have freshly sliced tomatos! Great buy and saves so much time!

    Posted on

    Slicer works well and blade stays sharp. Works smoothly. Watch the thickness you order as I wish I had paid better attention to that detail.

    from The Fresh Batch Posted on

    This easy tomato slicer slices perfect every time, same size cuts great when serving alot of tomatos, It's faster, and perfect each time .Great for hambugars,salads ,just everything .Easy to clean.

    from Harrison Familey Restaurant Posted on

    The Nemco Easy Tomato Slicer makes cutting tomatoes take seconds instead of minutes and you get consistant results and uniform slices. This model needed the blades to be tighten after a month which was just turning a few bolts. Highly recommended

    Normally i would say that any chef that uses a tomato slicer is lazy, and not quality oriented. But got this unit as a gift from my brother, a fellow chef, used it once... and now i dont know how i got by without it. Great unit at a great price. I love it.

    from The new haven cafe Posted on

    Wonderful Product!! I have a concession trailer and we do burgers and other hot and cold sandwiches. When people are waiting in line you don't have time to hand slice tomatoes. This slicer is "the bomb"! Highly recommend to anyone in the food business. Randy G.
