So here are two easy vegetable cutter hacks for you so that cutting veggies in no more of a pain for you.

Don’t underestimate the power of your humble pizza cutter. In fact, it can cut a lot of things other than the pizza. If you are making a salad and need to chop the celery into small pieces, then you simply need a pizza cutter and not a knife.

Vegetable Cutter Tip#2: Plates To Chopping Rescue
Cutting tomatoes is a daunting task because they are squishy. You can end up with a mess while performing the circumcision around this chubby vegetable. Hell, what do you do then. Take two glass plates. Now if you look at the plate from the bottom, you see a small section jutting out at the base. This is a stand for the the plate otherwise the plate would wobble.
Well, this stand can be used for cutting tomatoes as well. How? Let me teach you how. Place half a dozen tomatoes on the stand (not the big ones but the small cherry ones). Then compress it from above with a similar glass plate. Why do you need a glass plate? That’s because you need something transparent for controlling the tomatoes, lest they might not be in position while cutting. Then take a knife and run them from the centre. All your tomatoes are evenly cut, and in a single go.
Now weren’t these life hacks handy. Are you ready to dump your vegetable cutter?
