Lettuce Cutter Blade Replacement

Lettuce Cutter Blade Replacement

To change a blade set on the Nemco Easy Lettuce Cutter is actually very simple. First thing you’ll do is take this pin. Then you’re going to lift this handle, and you’re going to line up the holes in the back of the handle, and you’re going to insert this pin. Right like that. That’s going to hold your pusher block up and out of your way. You’ll notice that there are these two clips on either side of the base of the guideposts. What you’re going to do is grab them down here (there is a little place to grab them) and you can just pop them like that, and they come right off very easy. And then you’re going to take the blade set and pull it up off of the pins, being very careful because these blades are sharp, and you can take it off and replace it with a new blade set. If you want to change the actual blades, you’ll see there are screws right here. You can unscrew those and then follow the instructions that come with the blades. To reattach, you just line your holes up with the little pins, and you can just takes these clips, push them down, push these stoppers down, and there you are! It’s as easy as that to change the blades on the Nemco Easy Lettuce Cutter.

    unit lettuce parts squares blades long money multiple returns size

    I would not recommend this unit unless you have tried using one of these before. I ended up wasting money because of this unit. You should know. Webrestaurant does not accept returns on anything used. Even if you just tried it out and realized its not what you needed it to do. So after trying the unit out and being able to return I was stuck with the unit. I tried to get around using this item so I didn't waste it but ended up digging myself a bigger hole. I tried multiple different blades to get my lettuce cut the correct size and evenly. After trying the smallest square size we realized part of the lettuce will always be long since it goes downwards through the squares thus making the square blades pointless. Also cleanup is not easy and has multiple parts that I'm positive will eventually go missing, also the lettuce gets way too stuck in the push plate. You have to pick the lettuce out. I may sound angry but I'm actually not I understand web restaurant's policy on no returns and it was my fault for not doing more research but there was not much out there. So, I felt compelled to write this review so that someone does not go through the experience I had and ends up wasting money. This unit is well built and will last a long time but I would say stick to cutting by hand. This unit will not save you time or effort.
