So Fillmore Container sent me this cherry pitter to try out. I've never found one that works so I have to say I was skeptical.
And I even told Filmore that before they sent it!
We are preserving cherries today and guess what... it works! Even my son said it worked.
I did a video of 2 of my boys pitting cherries at our kitchen counter. Scroll on down to see it in action.
Here is a video of 2 of my boys working on a box of cherries. They both said they liked the way this one works.... and believe me if they didn't they would not have said it. :) I love the no mess factor! Until the boys start cherry wars.

My pitter came with an extra rubber. See the little rectangle space where the cherry sits? That has a rubber gasket that sits in that round hole making the rectangle slot. The pit goes down into the jar through that slot.
One of our failed pitters from years ago.
This is my son using a pitter years ago.... we really tried to make it work. I don't remember the brand of that pitter. But it was not family approved in my house.
He ended up filling that little bowl and then switching to a small piece of tubing and just poking out the pits.
And that is how we have pitted our cherries for years.
Pain in the behind! Huge mess. But it got the job done. And gave ups many cute pictures. :) (see below!)
