Oxo Good Grips Cherry Pitter

Time for another "favorite things" post. I give you...the Oxo Good Grips Cherry Pitter (not literally, you'll have to buy your own). I realize this handy, dandy kitchen gadget will only interest you if you pit a lot of cherries. Or any cherries really. Because I think for only $12.95, even if you pit cherries only once or twice a year, it's worth it over your lifetime to own this elegant little tool. 

All I really have to say is, it works. And without hurting your hand or spraying cherry juice all over you. That's thanks to the little cone-of-silence splatter shield that contains the splat and keeps your kitchen counter from looking like a crime scene. And just in case you're not sold, it's great for pitting olives too. Which may be a relief to followers of self-proclaimed gastrophysicist, Alton Brown, who doesn't believe in owning single-purpose kitchen gadgets (or as he likes to call them, unitaskers).

Boom, your done. It's just that easy.
My daughter likes to stick her little finger in there. Hi-larious.

Ready to be a great summer snack or baked into a pie,
cobbler, crisp or whatever cherry delight you have planned.

Visit yesterday's post to see what I made with these cherries.
