K10001 - Melon and Large Fruit Slicer
Do not like this.
I have tried several times to use this but it does not work. Or I do not the strength to push it. As many melons as we eat, it would have been a great gadget...if it worked. It just didn't seem sharp enough.
As I read through these reviews I would like to mention that the people who give this anything less than 3 stars are not following the directions. You need to slice off the ends of whatever you are cutting, for two reasons, One it creates a flat surface making it easier to use the unit and two make the initial cut easier. I have had lupus for years rendering me weak and fatigued often and the only time I have ever had an issue with this product was when I was using it on an item that it wasn't meant for (i.e full size watermelon) or I didn't cut the end off first. I use this product daily and have for the past 6 months, everyday we cut cantaloupe and pineapple and a couple of time we do other melons.
Easy as Pie
This was the fastest and easiest way to cut up a cantaloupe! Family can't complain about who got a larger cut! Love that all the same size. Haven't tried it yet on watermelon but tend not to buy the baby size,
Push, Rock, Slice, EAT!!
My kids love this!!
They use it to do all the fruits (with our assistance of course) It was hard at first but I realized that you really have to rock as you push and TADA!!! Perfectly sliced melons, apples, cantaloupe, whatever. It's a Must have in our kitchen, I'm glad I purchased it,
Watch out edible arrangements! You can do it yourself with this handy device. I bought the largest melon I could and it cut perfectly with no problem. I scooped out the seeds and filled it with strawberries, grapes, and blueberries. Now, my fam calls me the fruit salad queen. It is also handy for eating healthy. After cutting a melon, I divide the slices into ziplock bags. If anyone wants a sweet or a snack, it's a quick grab and go. Can you tell that I love it? You will love it to!
Ordered two, one for me & one for my niece. These to do not work at all. Her 250lb. husband couln't get it to wedge either! Am disappointed. Both are going back. I DID follow the directions on the box, also.
This works great!
I trimmed a pineapple and used this to cut it into perfect strips, and chucked out the round inside hard center. Used it on an apple, works great. Can't wait to do the watermelon! It is a large one, so I will cut it into sections first! Thanks QVC!
I'm really surprised that this product has so many negative reviews. I am a 5'3" tall woman and I don't have problems using this. Is everyone cutting off both ends of the melon/fruit before using it? I sometimes have to wiggle it back and forth to get it started and then just apply pressure on it. I have used it for cutting cantaloupe, pineapple and a small watermelon and love it.
I am fairly muscular and I still found it difficult to use. You need a lot of pressure to slam it through a cantalope. I kept it thinking it would get easier, finally tossed it in the trash.
DO NOT BOTHER!
I could not get this to cut through anything. I even had my husband try & he couldn't either. I would of sent back but I've had it a few months before using for the 1st time. I bought it for summer time fruits.
Not for me
If I had read the reviews I would not have bought this. I agree with the review that you have to be a body builder to get this to work without stressing out. It might work better for men but if you are 5'2" and a woman, forget it.
Not worth the money
Very dissapointed in this product. It would not even cut through a cantalope. Would not reccomend this product.
