Dicing an apple is a useful skill to have in the kitchen, whether you’re adding them to a salad or making a fruit pie.

Step One: Cut the apple in half
Start by cutting the apple in half with a sharp knife. You can cut it in half vertically or horizontally, depending on your preference. If you want to remove the seeds, cut the apple vertically. If you want to keep the seeds in, cut the apple horizontally.
Step Two: Cut each half of the apple into quarters
After cutting the apple in half, cut each half of the apple into quarters. again, you can do this either vertically or horizontally, depending on your preference.
Step Three: Cut each quarter of the apple into eighths
Once you have quartered the apples, cut each quarter of the apple into eighths. You should now have 8 pieces of apple from each original quarter.
Step Four: Remove the cores from each piece of apple
For this step, you will need a small paring knife. Take each piece of apple and remove the core from it by cutting around it in a circle and then popping it out. Repeat this step for all of the pieces of apples.
Step Five: Cut each piece of apple into small cubes
To finish dicing the apples, take each piece and cut it into small cubes. For smaller cubes, you can make 1-2 cuts per side. For larger cubes, you can make 3-4 cuts per side. Once you have cut all of the pieces of apples into small cubes, congrats! You have now successfully diced an apple!
Step Two: Cut the halves into quarters
With the halves cut side down, use your knife to cut each half of the apple into quarters. Again, make sure to cut through the core, but be careful not to cut yourself!
Step Three: Cut the quarters into eighths
Now that you have your apple quarters, it’s time to cut them into eighths.start by finding the center of each quarter and then make two cuts perpendicular to the first ones. If your apple quarters are on the small side, you may be able to get away with just making one cut per quarter. But if they’re on the large side, or if you want nice, even pieces, go ahead and make two cuts.
Step Four: Cut the eighths into thin slices
Now that you have all of your eighths, it’s time to turn them into thin slices. You can do this by cutting the apple from top to bottom, making sure to hold each eighth securely as you slice.
Dicing an apple is a simple task that can be accomplished in a matter of minutes with a sharp knife and a little bit of practice. Remember to use a cutting board, slice the apple in half and then into thin wedges, and then cut the wedges into small cubes. With a little bit of practice, you’ll be able to dice an apple like a pro in no time!
