Watermelon Slicer & Corer Review


Recently, I had the opportunity to receive a Watermelon slier & Corer by FDGoods New for free or a deep discount. In exchange for an honest and unbiased review. I did leave a review on Amazon.com. However I wanted to write a personal review. While sharing various photos.


I received a watermelon slicer & corer in one package. The knife was used to cut the watermelon in half. It is not included in the review. As it is a knife i have had for many years. 


The watermelon slicer had a thick yellow handle for easy gripping.


The handle made it easy to grasp the watermelon and lift it out by the slice.


The watermelon slicer has a sharp steel end that make sit easy to cut through watermelon with ease. What you need to do is hold the watermelon slicer to the side. Like it the photograph to cut the watermelon. Stick it in the watermelon using the serrated end first. Using a circular motion to the watermelon slicer is out of the watermelon. Doing this will ensure a smooth motion to slice up the watermelon with ease.
This watermelon slicer is much easier on my wrists. I have carpel tunnel. My wrists do not hurt trying to cut a watermelon. Nor to I add stress on my back from leaning in different positions to slice up a watermelon anymore.
If you have issues with your wrist, I suggest buying and using this product.


I also received a corer. It was easy to use. However, the right end of the corer is very sharp. I am not sure how to use that end. The handle is in the middle with a thick plastic. In my personal opinion, I do not think there is enough room to grip the handle properly without getting cut from the sharp end of the corer. I have small hands. If I can't grip it right. I know there is no way a grown man can. My suggestion is to make the grip area longer.


As you can see the corer in use. I was able to create those small half balls of watermelon that people like to see in fruit salads and served in different fruity drinks or fruit waters.


After completely coring the halves of the watermelon. I realized it was easier to use the corer to get ever little bit of watermelon from the rind. 

I am very pleased with how well the watermelon slicer performs. As for the corer....well, it will probably not be used much. Unless I am making melon balls for a fruit salad. Not my favorite tool of the bunch but still useful.

This product also works well on other melon varieties.

If you like eating watermelon, I suggesting buying a watermelon slicer and other accessories to make cutting a watermelon much simpler.

You can find one to order through the following links :

Watermelon Slicer & Strawberry Huller

Watermelon Slicer & Double Corer

If I had to rate this product for 1 to 5. 5 being the highest rated. As I think the watermelon slicer is awesome. I also think the corer that came with it needs to have a longer grip to avoid being cut. For that reason, I would rate it a 4.
