I was skeptical, but have been consuming watermelon this summer like it's my job. I sure wish I had ordered it 2 months ago. It works GREAT! I love it. This one is very large and easily went over larger watermelons. Tried cutting both ends off and just one end off - both ends being cut definitely works best. Helpful if your counter is not too high so you can get some leverage. My son is taller and stronger and went through easier than I did, but I really did not have any trouble. Very slick. Love it!
My wife loved this watermelon slicer. Despite all the reviews of needed the power of Thor to use this item, as long as you cut off the ends as instructed, you should be fine. If my wife and her string bean arms can get the job done so can you. Great product and the middle section is the most delicious and juicy part that all the kids fight over like other reviewers mentioned.
So far I've only used this on a cantaloupe but it worked very well and cut prep time significantly. I expect the same for watermelon. I'll edit this review and make any necessary adjustments once I've had the chance to use this on a watermelon.
Love it! I've cut up 10 - 12 watermelons and it works awesome!
