    One little tip from a pro Italian chef friend, always core the tomatoes. The core is where the tomato filters/stores toxins and ideally not best added to food.

    I quater then slice off the core (similar to coring Zucchini/Courgettes). Followed by dicing.

    Use an EXTREMELY SHARP knife.....scary sharp.
    yes remove core.
    There's multiple ways I slice tomatoes.
    It depends on what variety tomato, and what I'm using it for.

    I agree but you are missing out
