How to Dice Butternut Squash

Gone are the days of worrying about how to cut butternut squash. With this easy tutorial, you’ll find that as long as you have a sharp, sturdy knife, it’s easy to do.

We recommend using Cutco’s Vegetable Knife. It’s sharp, wide blade powers through hardy winter squash. When cutting, use a forward and down motion for better control and try to make uniform cuts so that the squash cooks evenly.

A sharp knife certainly makes a difference when cutting butternut squash, but another tip than can help is to poke holes in the squash with a fork and microwave for 3 to 5 minutes to soften it a bit before cutting.
