Imagine staring at 9lbs of cherries with this pitter in hand. At first you are pleased with the instrument since this pitter actually does do a good job and makes fast work of the cherries. Just as soon as you get into a rhythm suddenly it all goes horribly wrong. The spike that pushes the cherry pit out is no longer attached to the pitter, but is instead nestled securely in the cherry sitting in the bottom of your pit bowl.
After two of these (returned the first to the store) and after going through various glues and other methods I have given up on firmly securely the spike where it can do the most good. Honestly, it turns out that after the last aborted pitting effort (and third brand/type of glue) I forgot to take the escapee spike out of the bowl and ended up tossing it out with the pits. That's obviously where it wanted to be anyway and good riddance to it.
It's a gorgeous instrument that works terrifically...until it falls apart.
It falls apart a lot.
Save your money and patience and pass on this one.
For a replacement, though, I went with the Dalla Piazza Cherry/Olive Pitter. Works just as well. It's basically the same design, but I'm optimistic that it might last longer.

The other reviewers and I had the same experience. I had two of these and it was unbelievably how after a little regular use the pin flies out and then will not stay. Read morePublished on January 17, 2014 by Sam Johnson
I'm looking for a new olive/cherry pitter because mine has suffered the same fate as others mentioned here - the pin keeps falling out. Read morePublished on January 18, 2011 by Artsysmartsy
Not much to say, works adequately until the pin falls out. Our first one broke in the second cherry season (we eat moderate amounts and pit fewer than that). Read morePublished on August 8, 2010 by A. Deger
I've been through two of these. Feels great in the hand, and construction appears to be solid, right up to when the plunger pops out of the body (on both of mine). Read morePublished on June 11, 2010 by Cookin' Dad
