Cutting Tomatoes 101

If you’re looking for the best ways to slice, dice, and chop your Tomatoes, you’ve come to the right place! We asked Chef Zach, our company’s culinary expert, to show us exactly how to cut Tomatoes so that they are perfectly prepared for your salads, sandwiches, appetizers, and more.

While there are many different types of Tomatoes (which you can find in our Tomato Guide!) we’re looking at how to cut Tomatoes of the larger variety: specifically, Beefsteak Tomatoes and Tomatoes-on-the-Vine. Since these larger Tomatoes are also meatier, they are your best choice for many classic Tomato cuts.

Check out our guide and see just how easy it is to start cutting Tomatoes like a pro!
