Mellon Cutter Review

For Christmas I got a cool cheese grater (love it) and this melon cutter.  I love cantaloupe so its not surprising that I got the cutter even though I really did not know what it was at first.  I decided to test it yesterday since I was in the mood for cantaloupe.
Even though it is plastic it cut the melon nicely.  It also can be used for scooping out the seeds.  I thought it worked much better than a spoon.  It says you can use it to peel the cantaloupe but I use a knife which is easier.
Out of 10 I would give it a 7.  Its useful but not a must have in my kitchen.

I have been really busy cooking and writing  for Cooking Light - it is so much fun.  My Mom has taken some squid out of the freezer for my dinner tonight.  Yum I can't wait.  I still have not decided how I am going to cook it but if I can't think of anything better I like it just in a pan with some EVOO and salt (I'm not a fan of pepper).  Sometimes I bread it or make a sauce or pasta.

See you soon.  I have a smoothie recipe to show you.


  1. Cantaloupe is really good! Thanks for your honest review of the cutter. I'll have to look for one of those sometime.

    And is that a Carlo's Bakery jacket you're wearing?

  2. Looking forward to your smoothie recipe. I make my own yogurt and I make yogurt shakes a lot. Interesting reading about the cantaloupe cutter. I love that melon, too. Think I'll pass and stick with a knife & spoon. No room!

  3. I'm so overdue for a new cheese grater. I have this cheese grater board I've had for centuries and I hate it! I seriously need to upgrade :)

  4. Hi, I am 11 and love to cook and have a passion for it too! Your videos are really cool and i visit your blog all the time! I love all of your videos and recipes! The smoothie vid was a really good recipe. I liked this one too. I try to cook all the time and love to eat and love foodnetwork... and Julie and Julia- the movie! You are amazing!
