There is only one customer question about this and nobody knowing the olives replied...
This review is for people like me who want to use this item as an *olive* pitter.
It requires a little bit of strong grip when the olive is firm, but it still works well.
The picture is the outcome and you can see some pits came out with fleshes.
I think it would be much easier with soft black olives.
For scale, the olive pick (upper part of the picture) is similar to common toothpicks.
I hope this review will be helpful to olive lovers.
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 have been a converted OXO user for many years now. Many of the smaller tools in my life bag are OXO brand. I've also stocked several restaurants I have had a hand in opening with OXO tools, they work as advertised!
As much as I love this gadget, and even though it has saved me countless hours, I have two minor caveats, however. Be sure to watch out the bottom when you squeeze to make sure you actually got the pit out - sometimes, you can get off center on the cherry by accident, and miss it. Bad prospect for your molars if you encounter a pit later. Additionally, don't trust the splash guard to keep you clean. Foolishly, I did, and was not happy when I looked down at my shirt when done. Happily, I was able to get out all the juice stains using dissolved Oxiclean powder to soak the garment for an hour or so. Don't forget to wear your apron, and you'll be able to stem and pit a pound of cherries in under 10 minutes.
The splatter guard works beautifully and makes the process much neater, with zero clean up. Very little effort is needed to pit the cherries, so if you have arthritis or other hand / muscle concerns, know that it's doesn't take a lot of pressure or the total closing of your hand into a fist to make it work.
It's very easy to clean, and the lock to close it makes it easy to store and to get out of a drawer (it doesn't get caught on things as it would if it were stored in its open setting).
One thing that I did note was that a couple of the cherries (literally two out of scores) still had the pit in, but if you are paying even a little bit of attention, you can tell that the pit didn't fall out and can easily pull it out with the center part that is still hanging off the bottom of the cherry. I haven't tried this on olives (and probably won't), so I can't speak to how well it works on those, but it definitely won't work for anything bigger than a cherry. I had to squeeze in a couple of extra large cherries, so its use is definitely limited to its stated purpose. That's fine by me as that's what I bought it for.
It's so easy to use and so effective that I will be eating more cherries this year than ever before!

Although don't think there would be any pitter that would work in that case , but apart from that , its a great quality product , exactly what I expected
Quite difficult to use for olives, although I expect cherries would be a lot easier.
