Quick and Easy Mess Free Way to Cut Watermelon!

 I don't know about you, but whenever I use to cut up a watermelon I spent most of the time worrying I was going to slice my hand off, and then the rest of the time dreading how I was going to have to clean all the sticky juice off my countertops, floors, cupboards, clothes, hair, shoes, etc when I was finished. Basically, cutting up a watermelon was a sticky mess... until my brilliant husband invented this method!
STEP 1: Cut melon from top to bottom.
(lay it on its side instead of straight up and down though)
Oh look, no mess!
STEP 2: Cut melon in half again.
Oh my goodness, no mess!
STEP 3: Slice and enjoy!
(Yep. Still no mess.)

Chunking Watermelon

Follow steps 1 and 2 above.
STEP 3: Slice down into watermelon but not through the rind.
 STEP 4: Cut from left to right at different levels on the watermelon.
STEP 5: Pull chunks out and put in a bowl to serve to all your impressed guests!
The mess stays on the cutting board and in the rind for a quick and easy cleanup!
BONUS TIP: The green coated Pampered Chef knife you see pictured is A M A Z I N G. We got it for our wedding and use it for everything.
