Four times the cherries

Progressive Cherry-It Pitter

Cherry season rules. Fresh cherries are in abundance seemingly everywhere you look. From roadside stands to farmers markets, the lure of the cherry is one not to be ignored. And who am I to argue with the intense flavor locked up in those dark red globes of deliciousness? I succumb to the call of the cherry, happily partaking whenever they are near.

While it may be fine to snack on cherries and simply discard of the pits one by one, if you have grander ideas for your bowl of cherries, the pits are going to have to go. Most cherry pitters offer a mechanism for pitting cherries only one at a time, but the Progressive Cherry-It Pitter can handle up to four. Simply place the cherries in the device and press down. Cherry pits are safely stored in the base, and you are left with four cherries ready for baking—if they make it that far.

Cherry Chomper hungry for cherry pits

Cherry Chomper Cherry Pitter by Talisman Designs

This cherry pitter looks hungry. In fact, judging by the expression, I’d say the Cherry Chomper Cherry Pitter downright loves cherry pits. Which is OK, because as much as this little guy appears to like ‘em, I don’t like cherry pits.

The cherry pitter chomps down on inserted cherries — or olives too, but don’t tell him that — and collects the pits in a reservoir in his belly. Pop the cherry out via access in the back, and you’ve got yourself a fresh cherry ripe for eating. With the enthusiastic Cherry Chomper by your side, it won’t take long before you have yourself a nice big bowl of (pit-less) cherries. From Talisman Designs.
