This slicer cuts small and bigger melons with ease. Pineapples should work also. Any slicer you get MUST have stainless steel or sturdy blades. This one qualifies for slicing watermelon - don't get much tougher than that. My husband did have to wiggle it a little to get it going - and then - had great slices.
My husband loves watermelon more than anyone I have ever met. I got this for him and he used it right away. He is ecstatic that he can now buy bigger watermelons since this makes it so easy to cut them up.
It was very easy to push down, the trick is to push it down at a high up position. Even my 5 years old daughter can do it.
It is a good buy for the price. I am enjoying it. I look forward to making awesome fruit platters all summer.
I bought this out of curiosity because I love watermelon in the summer but hate the cutting and juice spill everywhere. It works so well! Since you only need to cut the watermelon in half and a little bit on the side to allow the cutter to slide in, it’s basically a mess-free experience. It’s fun to watch watermelon gets cut in cubes without using any knife, the leftover that the cutter doesn’t get to, the package comes with a free melon scoop to take care of the rest. Can’t wait to eat a lot of watermelons during summer!
tool worked effortlessly, so much easier than cutting the watermelon by hand. The quality of this slicer is wonderful, I would highly recommend!
I used these with my kids and they loved it, easy to use, works well, will be looking to get a few more to give as gifts.
