Got Melon? You Need A Watermelon Slicer!!!

My latest kitchen obsession is this 15.7” Large Stainless Steel Melon Slicer, Cutter, Peeler, & Corer!!! It's big, it's sharp and it's earned a spot in my kitchen due to it's ability to reduce my melon prep to a few mere minutes.  

I was skeptical at first, but I have to say this baby delivers over and over and over!  To be honest, I started testing this last summer, just to make sure the plastic pieces didn't break and the blades didn't bend or rust and one year later, I am still a happy camper!

To start off with shop wisely; you're not going to force a gigantic Watermelon through this baby, but a reasonably sized, no bigger than a basketball Watermelon will slice just fine.  But that's not all, this works beautifully with Honeydew and Cantaloupe. I have yet to try pineapple, but I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Once, home, wash your little melon baby and then slice the ends off, so it sits flat on your cutting surface.  This not only aids in safety for you & the melon, but also assists the slicer in doing it's job.

Think leverage before slicing, you want to get your body weight above the melon and then press down as this glides through the melon with very little effort.  Once, sliced (this literally takes a second or two), you're either ready to eat (Watermelon) or ready to clean the guts out (seeds).  You can eat as wedges or quickly run a knife through for bite-sized pieces.

There are a lot of slicers out there like this, but I like this one for it's non-rusting stainless steel, it's grippy handles and budget friendly, under $20 price tag.

What are you waiting for?  Summer is right around the corner, get your melon on!

Keep it healthy!
