So, you've picked the perfect watermelon at the grocery store and now you're ready to dig in. The only problem is, how do you cut a watermelon? Well, you can try your best and go at it with a regular knife, use a slicer that doubles as tongs or test your arm strength with a multi-slice round cutter. However, nothing is as easy as using this windmill watermelon cutter. 

The windmill watermelon cutter chops the fruit into even slices in mere seconds. All you have to do is cut your watermelon in half and cut off one end (easy), then select the size of cubes you'd like and push the tool into the melon (even easier!). It allows you to cut all the way down to the rind, so you're not wasting any fruit or stuck trying to use a knife to carefully scrape it all off. You can watch the windmill watermelon cutter in action in the video above!

The tool is available on Amazon thanks to a few sellers and costs under $15. (The average price of a windmill watermelon cutter is actually around $8.)

Gone are the days of buying pre-cut watermelon at the grocery store that usually isn't ripe enough and costs more than the cutter. Shop for one today and get it just in time for peak watermelon season and before all those Fourth of July parties and barbecues.

With your perfectly cut watermelon cubes, you can eat them on their own or make a salad, dessert, cocktails and more.
