    We sell a good amount of diced tomato and onion as well as other veggies. Mostly for salads. I was looking at the waring or robot coupe. Waring is much cheaper. I dont want to waste my money if it mashes the tomatoes. I'm hoping it only mashes them if the blade is dull. Any insight/feedback on my future investment? We also need to do hummus in it.

    Beware anything with a grid, you are the one who pushes it through the grid, the machine just chops what comes through into cube lengths.

    What I suggest is called a "tomato witch", it's what Mc d's and other high volume places use to slice tomatoes.  Basically its a series of serrated blades with a cradle that holds the tomato, and you push it through.  True, it only slices, but you just pick up the sliced tomato and turn it 90 degrees and push it through again.

    Meat slicers are another way, but a lot of wasted time, motion, and a (deleted) to clean.  Not endorsed.
