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.

    The Nemco Dicers are great for all our dicing needs, Having access to the replacement parts is even better! These have made our consistency in diced vegetables great!

    from Mesa Grande Taqueria Posted on

    I have to chop so many onions (so many!) for our food truck business. This vegetable dicer makes short work of the job and delivers uniform pieces for my recipes.

    Posted on

    This dicer is perfect for cutting our onions and green peppers for our pizzas. They're the perfect size, the blades are still sharp after months of use, and it isn't bulky like other dicers we've used in the past!

    from Pizza Pro Posted on

    This is perfect when you go from a small business to a medium sized business, from chopping a few dozen tomatoes to boxes of tomatoes this is very efficient. Easy to clean and very heavy duty.

    from Eskwilax Llc Posted on

    Got this mainly to dice onion, and celery quickly. Celery is a little tricky as you have to smash it quite hard and can really only do one (pre-cut) stalk at a time. Onions I found that if you quarter them and then put a quarter on the blades at an angle, so the v of the wedge is facing the blades, it works best with most consistent cuts. Celery really get's stick in the top black part (the smasher) and it's a little tricky to get out. But the quality of the dicer is great, it's heavy duty and I've used it a lot with no degradation in quality.

    Very easy to use. Chops items with the right size. I highly recommend it. Very easy to wash after every use and last for very long time.

    We had the original Easy Chopper and wanted something a little bigger than it. This item works great and allows us to more easily keep up with how much stock we need. It is solidly made and dices onions very easily.

    We can dice pounds and pounds of vegetables in so much less time. Our salsa takes almost a half hour less time to make with this dicer.

    Diced tomatoes and onions are no longer a time consuming item to prep with this tool! Great for making use off all your prep time! Easy to take apart and clean!!!!

    This is an excellent cutter, we have cut thousands of pounds of potatoes with this device at various outdoor festivals. I highly recommend this product.

    from Sunday,s Catering Posted on

    Force multiplier! 1/4" for diced tom's and onions 1/2 for potatoes, veg, fruit ! Untrained staff can fly through prep! Looking at more ways to utilize.

    from Summer Kitchen Cafe Posted on

    Makes great diced onions quickly. Large onions take several hard strokes but not too hard once you get on to it. A little tedious to clean, but a small bamboo skewer fits just between the grooves. Well made and sturdy. I would recommend this product without reservation.

    Love It, Saves lots of time!!!!! comes apart easy to clean.
