If you are looking for a healthy dessert of snack, or perhaps a refreshing bite to eat in the summer months then the juicy taste of a watermelon is perfect. Due to the size they can be a little tricky to slice and also a little dangerous with a large sharp knife slicing down towards the worktop.
Fear not, this Giant Watermelon Slicer does exactly that, it is like a apple slicer you may have seen but on a bigger scale designed for water melons. At 9-10 inches in diameter it has strong stainless steel blades slicing your water melon into 12 pieces, as well as cutting out the core for you too. This slicing gadget has two grip handles, one either side which allows to to easily push down on the slicer over the watermelon to cut.
To use just slice the bottom and top of the water melon to create a flat edge where you can then safely stand it upright. Then just push the slicer down over the fruit, forcing it straight down till you hit the chopping board the watermelon will be sliced and open out like a flower ready to be served.
