When you dice tomatoes do you make a mess? Improve your knife skills and watch how to dice tomatoes like a pro.
Have you ever wondered how to cut your tomatoes into perfect little cubes like at restaurants? It's actually easier than you think.
Frankly, it’s a pretty simple process; the most important thing is to use a sharp knife. That's going to make life a lot easier for you. When you're cutting, make sure you use a sawing motion to do most of the work. If you use minimal pressure, you'll avoid crushing the tomato and turning it into mush.

[SOUND] Hi, I'm Jenné Claiborne.
00:00:04.590 --> 00:00:07.440
Cutting a tomato can get a bit messy.
00:00:07.440 --> 00:00:09.710
Here is how you dice one like a pro.
00:00:09.710 --> 00:00:15.720
So grab your tomato, place it down on a
cutting board bottom side up.
00:00:15.720 --> 00:00:19.830
Cut it into the diced pieces that we like.
00:00:19.830 --> 00:00:21.150
Don't cut all the way through.
00:00:21.150 --> 00:00:25.870
And then just cut it into squares or
cubes, or however large or
00:00:25.870 --> 00:00:27.270
small you like it.
00:00:27.270 --> 00:00:32.000
Now once you have this, you can lay it on
its side, hold all those pieces together,
00:00:32.000 --> 00:00:35.350
and with a sharp knife, simply cut down.
00:00:38.820 --> 00:00:42.670
Now you have perfectly diced tomatoes with
half the mess.
00:00:42.670 --> 00:00:46.723
00:00:46.723 --> 00:00:47.223
