Slicing a watermelon takes way more work than slicing…well, everything. Except for, like, a car. FEENM wants to change the world of watermelon slicing, and this huge slicer – 15.7 inches in diameter – will take on watermelons, cantaloupes, and any other hard-to-slice fruits or vegetables.
The blades are made of 340 stainless steel, which won’t deform the watermelon. It has an ergonomic grip that keeps your hands away from the blades, and it will produce twelve perfect slices every time. You can even use this handy product on pineapple and honeydew. The four-point-five-star rating on Amazon means you’re getting something you’ll love.
