5.0 out of 5 stars Peter Piper Picked A Peck of Cherries, June 24, 2012
This review is from: Norpro Deluxe Cherry Pitter with Suction Base (Kitchen)
15 lbs. of cherries done, another 15 lbs. of cherries to go, and I'm happy with this product. We had the fortune of my two kids, 3 and 7, spending a couple hours picking a friends overloaded cherry tree. There were cherries of all sizes, tiny, small, medium and some big ones. I didn't have a problem at all with the stoner working with even the really small cherries. I found a rhythm, and I was able to identify when I got a mis-pit (i.e. didn't get the pit out), and I now have a better appreciation for why cans of cherries always have that little disclaimer regarding the possibility that there may be pits.

Look, from my viewpoint, if you're looking for something to pit cherries without a single error, that feeds the cherries without a single hitch, and takes no time ...well, I'm not sure it exists, and if it does, you're going to pay a large sum of $$ for it. However, if you're looking to be able to move through large amounts of cherries and do so with minimal effort and good quality control, then I think you'll be pleased with this product.

I didn't have any problems with suction (though, my rubber pad was moist when I would set it up); sure, it's not always effortless feeding (friction anyone - slightly rubbery skin of cherries vs. plastic feeder tray = physics more powerful than your desire for perfection), but a simple poke of the finger and voila, everything back on track in a tenth of a second; there's splatter - but for us, isn't that part of the fun?

Simple, effective, efficient, and a fantastic product for my expectations. Now, I can't wait for our cherry orchard to mature.

How can you tell if the cherry was not pitted? (And what variety of cherry trees do you grow - and are you able to grow cherries without spraying?) Thanks so much.
