This Melon Corer and Fork is perfect for finicky eaters

Melon Corer and Fork

There’s nothing wrong with getting your hands dirty while you eat. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with not getting your hands dirty while you eat too. Ribs slathered in BBQ, hot dogs, pizza, and burritos are all going to get stuff on your hands if you’re not super careful. There are some of us who will take a knife and fork to all of it just to avoid the very uncomfortable minutes of having residue¬†on your hands and under your fingernails.

If what I’m saying resonates with your soul, then you’re going to love this Melon Corer and Fork. Well, if you love eating melon in the summer that is. Usually you have to cut open a cantaloupe, take out the seeds, cut it in slices, then either cut it into chunks to be picked up with a fork, or be an absolute heathen and dig your face into the whole slice. This kitchen tool combines a mini wire slicer and fork to let you sever the perfect piece and nab it with the fork.

It’s an ingenious idea, and I only say that because I love melon, but really hate picking it up. This is a pretty cheap trinket at only $9, and is sure to make eating this particular type of fruit more enjoyable. It’s made of stainless steel and will make for easy cleanup since you can toss it in the dishwasher when you’re done. Of course, if you end up going to any cookouts and don’t have it neatly stored somewhere on your person, you’re going to be out of luck.
