Cut a Watermelon in Less Than 3 Minutes

We watched a chef cut a watermelon...it only took 1 min! I was so amazed that I had to share. Here is his technique...I have done it multiple times and it took less than 3 minutes!!

1- Lay the watermelon on a cutting board.

2- Cut both ends off the watermelon

3-Place the watermelon upright sitting on one of the cut ends

4- Cut green part off in 4 cuts

5- Cut corner of green part of in 4 more cuts

6-After 8 cuts the watermelon should be rim free

7- Slice watermelon about every half inch

8- Take slices and turn to side then repeat step 7

9-Take long sticks of watermelon and cut into cubs

10- Put Watermelon in bowl and enjoy

I hope this makes the job of cutting up watermelon a little easier and gives you more time to enjoy summer!

  3. Fabulous! I hate cutting watermelon... thank you so much!

  4. Just a tip for lettuce:
    If you plan on using a lot of lettuce at once for a salad (left overs?), smash the stalk vertically on the bench. It will break it off of all of the leaves and you can pull it apart.
    Tada, lettuce ready for salad in 2 seconds.

  5. My sister does this with cantelope too! I was so impressed when I saw her do it. It's so easy!!
