Best way to work it with tomatoes: I typically use smaller to medium sized tomatoes that are juicy and ripe. The device comes with two grids; I'm using the coarse grid only (as I want cubes, not mash). Wash tomatoes and halve them. Then place each half face-down onto the grid and slam it through. Put only one half-tomato each time; if you put more than one at a time it won't cut as sharply.
Also make sure to SLAM IT through; that's the way to cut it sharply into cubes. If you cannot use some strength to slam it rather than push it, the results may not be as good (the cut won't be as sharp, tomato may become somewhat mashed). It works quite fast as you can simply lift the handle, place a half tomato, and slam down, then lift again etc. And remember to place the tomato-half face down (with the cut side on the grid).
I estimate this device saves me around 45 minutes a week cubing tomatoes, that's nearly 40 hours a year! It is easy to assemble and disassemble and washes easily in the dishwasher. Thoroughly recommended.
This product works great and I highly recommend it!
2. I had a medium size onion, and it was too big to fit on the chopping panel.
3. It's REALLY difficult to clean! I received a little comb-like tool to get the residue of onions out, but it was painstakingly slow. The dishwasher could not get it completely clean either. I had to use the comb again.
Update April 2015.
This is more trouble than it is worth. It does it's job well, but chopping with a knife is seriously easier, and you don't have 100 little cubicles to examine to see if they are all cleaned up! If grandma is a guest for dinner and she's a stickler for precision, let her chop the onions with this thing. Serves her right!
