I own a Pampered Chef cherry pitter, so I really didn't need another. The problem with the old one is that you'd have a fine splatter of cherry juice nearby and eventually your hand would hurt. Oxo has solved both issues! The splatter guard is wonderful and the grip really does cushion your hand. Bonus -- dishwasher safe and locks for storage! It also works on olives.

Kudos to the Oxo team for making some solid product impovements! I'm passing my old Pampered Chef one down the family line.

When I was a kid, we pitted buckets of sour pie cherries every year. We froze them and Mom made pies all winter long. So I consider myself an expert on pitting cherries. I bought the pitter because I had a gift certificate I needed to use and because I like gadgets. This one works ok. It generally gets the pit out. But it is messy and time consuming.

I went back to my old tried and true pitting tool...A paper clip. Just insert the clip where the stem was, push it down and under the pit. Then scoop/pull/flick the pit back up through the stem hole. Use a small paper clip for sour pie cherries, and a big paper clip for sweet red cherries or Queen Anne cherries. It is way less messy than the OXO pitter, because the only hole is at the top of the cherry. Give it a try and let me know how it works for you...

I've never used another cherry pitter before but this one works perfectly every time. I bought it so I could quickly pit cherries for my kids. I like how it locks closed for storage. The shield comes off to wash. Effortless pitting, and while it does splatter, it is awesome. Makes the sink look like a crime scene.

Cherries are my favorite fruit and I miss them when the season is over. This year, I decided to pit and freeze them so I could enjoy them into the winter months. After reading lots of reviews, I decided to give this OXO Good Grips pitter a try.

I've been buying bags of cherries whenever they're on sale (which is practically every week in June and July) and pitting them. Pull off the stem, place the cherry in the pitter with the stem spot facing up and squeeze the trigger. About 95% of the time the pit pops right out. The other 5% of the time the pit is just pushed off to the side or it comes out but gets hung up in the exit hole because it's a little too big. If the pit is pushed off to the side, it's easy to spot and pick out, and if it's hung up it's also easy to pick it out. There was just one time that wasn't true. The pit got pushed into the exit hole and jammed there tight. It took me a couple of minutes with a lobster pick to get it out of there. But I did get it out with no harm done, and that was just one incident in many hundreds of cherries. I do think the exit hole should be just a tiny bit bigger, but that's minor.

The splatter guard works pretty well, but not flawlessly. You shouldn't pit a batch of cherries wearing something you don't want to get an occasional drop of cherry juice on. It seems counterintuitive, but I've found that aiming the pitter slightly sideways rather than straight up and down minimizes that risk.

I LOVE this tool. I eat a lot of cherries and I've always felt like I had to hide in my living room because of the obviously less than glamorous method of getting rid of the pits. This makes it so easy AND if you want to make a sauce with fresh cherries or put cherries into a fruit salad this saves you a ton of the otherwise manual labor and time spent that used to be involved in those processes. Here's a tip by the way - you get a nicer, cleaner hole if you put the cherry in upside down with the stem through the bottom of the splash guard - this also saves you the trouble of stemming the cherries.

This is my first and probably my last cherry pitter. It's simple to use and works great. The splash shield contains almost the squirting juice. It makes a satisfying click when the pit is gone.

I previously owned 2(!) Leifheit Pro Line cherry pitters because that's the only pitter of this kind the local stores carry. With each, the plunger fell out at the first use. Finally I got this OXO cherry pitter at Amazon, where I could see on the picture that the plunger cannot fall out. I just used it, and it's really nice to use, the splatter shield helps reducing the splatter, it's easy to clean and store. It very efficiently takes the pit out of medium size firm cherries. When cherries are very big or softer, the pit might stay connected with the cherry and it's a little harder to get it out when the splatter shield is attached. This is a minor inconvenience though and not a complaint. Altogether the OXO did it's job very well and I did not have to hammer the plunger back in only to find it go out with the next cherry again.

I love this cherry pitter. I used to have an older style that my grandmother used. On this pitter, the top of the rod that actually pushed the pit out looked sort of like the control end of a dental syringe. It wasn't great, but it was a hell of a lot easier than trying to push pits out with a wooden skewer. When I went to replace that pitter, I was a little dazed by sticker shock (I expected to find one similar to the one I used to have and pay maybe $5-6). I only found this model but was desperate and forked over the money. Well, it turned out to be worth every penny. I bought 4 lbs. of cherries because they were on sale and I wanted to make some pies. I pitted the entire batch in about 40 minutes. Amazing! Ten minutes per pound -- and that was on my first run while I was still working on my technique of using the device. I'm very happy with this pitter. :) Works well on the few varieties of olives I've tried too.
