Today, I’m gonna show you how to cut a watermelon,
using one of these slicers.
I saw a video of someone using one,
and thought out to try it out.
The idea is you cut your watermelon in half,
then take your slicer,
and cut into the watermelon like this.
Then turn your slicer around,
and use it to pull out a piece of melon.
Pretty cool, hah？
It’s a really neat idea,
but I did find it quite tricky to use.
When I first tried it,
it felt like it would sometimes get a bit stuck.
And when I pick the pieces up,
I hadn’t cut all the way to the bottom of the melon,
so it wasn’t really working very well.
I tried it again,
and it did seem difficult to get the cut all the way down.
When I did get all the way down,
I found it left loaf behind,
because the slicing tool is so wide,
and it leaves big corners.
So I have to clean it up with a spoon.
What I did find,
is that If you take the first piece out right away,
it’s easier to work the tool all the way to the bottom,
and take out full length of the slices.
I was also recutting pieces which were half the width,
which mean that could leave smaller corners,
and take out more melon.
This piece is the end of the first slice I took out
which didn’t cut all the way to the bottom.
I definitely find it easier like this,
and as you can see,
the half-width slices means you can cut out more of the melon.
I tried it again with another half,
and this time it seemed to work even better.
It definitely takes a bit of practice to get the most tile of it.
But what I did like,
is you can just take yourself a slice out,
Then cling-film it and store it in the fridge.
You can try cutting in both directions.
and then tilt them to a bowl,
to make a load of cubes.
I hope you enjoy watching this video.
It’s a bit different from my usual thought,
but I want to let you know how I got on with the slicer.
If you’ve tried one out,
you can let me know how you got on in the comments below.
