How To Replace the Pusher Block On Your Nemco Easy Chopper

    chopper tomatoes cuts slicer vegetables cut eggplant prep small vegetable

    This chopper works really well for dicing vegetables. I like having consistent sizes for chopped veggies, and this makes prepping a breeze. My only complaint is that is is REALLY HARD to clean. It takes twice as long to pick out all the little bits of residue that stay in the chopper than it does to prep containers of veggies. Still worth the work, but if anyone has tips, please pass them along.

    Purchased this to slice eggplant and tomatoes. Product has a picture indicating that it can be used for tomatoes. It mutilates even firm, unripe tomatoes. Also did not cut peeled eggplant well at all. Even worse, webstauraunt wont take it back or give me a credit - i was told to "sell it". Sub par on all counts.

    Thank you for the review, Trevor. We are sorry you did not find this slicer helpful. It is capable of cutting tomatoes, although we recommend purchasing a tomato slice should you plan on doing large quantities of them. A Customer Solutions Representative will be in touch with you concerning the issue.

    This baby is a life saver! We absolutely love our chopper. It's is very strong and well made, working just as needed. I had to purchase the add on chopper blade and push block, so make sure you buy those too if you're looking for other cuts.

    from Jeni Betts Posted on

    This vegetable slicer is great for small restaurants and cafes! Easy to hand cut french fries! It works nicely for other small vegetable prep too!!!
