Put away your knife! We're testing the Nicer Dicer. You get two containers and two different sized dicer blades that are inset a lever. This product claims to make dicing a snap. The product will cost you 40 bucks, but Does It Work?
Before cutting, you fasten a cup on the lever so it can catch the cut food. With the larger dicer in place, we cut a peeled potato for french fries and it was a snap! Next we tried a zucchini. I was able to cut the zucchini into sticks. The neat thing I found was that the diced food stayed in the cup so you can keep dicing and when it's full, you just empty it out!
I found it easy to change out the dicer lever. You just slide it off it's pivot point and slide another one on.
Before dicing the onions, I cut it into sections first. I did that so it would be easier to work with. The smaller dicer was harder. Eventually, though, I figured it out. I needed to give it a little more "umph!" The onions were diced perfectly.
I changed the dicer lever back to the bigger sized one so I could cube cheese. The blades just glided through and in less than a minute, we had cubed cheese.
The red pepper was no challenge for the Nicer Dicer either. We diced those into small piece just fine. But the challenge was a tomato. I cut it in half and the blades were able to but the tomato without any difficulty.
I was impressed with this gadget. It takes practice to get used to, but I believe the Nicer Dicer lives up to its claim. It works!
