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

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.

    great onions Easy Chop Cuts blades chopper tomatoes dicers vegetables

    From green peppers to onions if you're doing a high quality quantity this is perfect for dicing up all of that perfect size would highly suggest.

    from Penelopes Lil Cafe Posted on

    Good product! Efficient and sturdy. Great for break down of veg in large quantities. It does require some force but if your busting through a 50# sack of onions your not looking to finesse the process.

    from Gumbeaus Posted on

    I love my vegetable dicer! Makes chopping so quick and uniform! The only cons is cleaning it out. And no chopping anything mushy (ie eggs) because it gets stuck on top.

    Posted on

    My business, a mobile food cart could not live without this product. We use it the cut onions, green peppers and tomatoes. Easy to use, easy to clean and worth every penny.

    from Grand Grillin Posted on

    Works great, blades are extremely sharp. I use it to dice tomatoes, jalapenos and onions for pico. Cleans up easily and cuts cleanly. Definitely recommend.

    from happy eddy's pronto pups Posted on

    This is one of the best tools we have bought lately. It Cuts our tomatoes and onions perfectly and quickly so we can be more efficient

    One of the best small gadgets I've gotten for our kitchen. We've had it for several months and it gets used daily a lot. The blades are still sharp. Well do about 25 pounds of onions or peppers in minutes. Wish I would've bought it years ago.

    from Uncle Tony's Pizza Posted on

    What a great chopper! The Nemco N56500-2 takes all the work out of a tedious job. I'm ordering the 1/4" chopper blades for it too. I get to smile every time I use it.

    from No Goats Posted on

    If your looking to cut labor costs, this product is a must. We go through baskets full of salsa, pico de gallo, etc and this product is really going to help speed up prep times.

    from Los Cantaritos Posted on

    this product works great and this is the best deicer i have ever seen before this product can dice foods for salsa, pizza toppings, drink garnishes, and more.

    from Zackey joe's Posted on

    I have used these dicers for years If manintaned they last for ever Proper cleaning and some food grade lube on shaft wash after each use

    from windmill Posted on

    Wish I had bought it years ago. Doesn't take up much space on counter so I leave it out and can chop an onion in 2 seconds. I put a measuring cup underneath to catch the pieces and if I want a smaller dice I dump them back on top and whack them again, voila.

    Labor savings! Uniform size cuts no matter the employee doing it. This thing is great and a need for any restaurant with significant cut work.

    from Union St Diner Posted on

    We love our chopper. It saves so much time, especially during our busy season when we have a lot to prep. We've used it on just about everything!

    from Shaver Lake Pizza Posted on

    Every restaurant should have one of the these. Same time, and prevent injury for a very small investment. This will last forever, simply change the blades based on usage.

    from Arturo's Posted on

    I ordered the Easy Chop by Nemco with some accessories. This machines is much better than I expected and ordered on Thursday and received it on Saturday FedEx- I was able to use it on the weekend, which I really appreciated. I use it primarily for cutting food for dehydrating and canning (about 500 jars a year). I also purchased the Easy Chop II. With these appliances I am preparing 4 times as fast! I did have a need to use the "online chat", however I would personally rather the phone. They gave me Nemco's customer service number and based on that enlighting conversation I purchased the Easy Chop. Great company, fast delivery, and awesome products at good prices. I will using them again! Mike

    from BioEnergy LLC Posted on

    Great product to have in the restaurant. It saves time dicing vegetables, we especially use it when dicing tomatoes to make our pico de gallo!

    from Twisted Tortilla Posted on

    Great chopper. I use it to make salsa and to chop vegetables for cold salads. Great item. Very durable. Easy to switch cube sizes with different plates. Worth every dime.

    from mod cafe Posted on

    I was hesitant when the Chef requested a 'chopper', but after the crew got the hang of it they were definitely whipping through some of the prep items faster. Good construction, nice unit.
