I had received my pitter weeks ago and had not yet gotten around to using it! Yesterday I made a salad that used fresh cherries. Perfect time to bust out the Zyliss Cherry Pitter. I found it super easy to use and really clean. I had accidently thrown away the piece of cardboard with the "directions" on it so I was just going for it. Trust me - it's easy to use. Unlock the handle and throw the cherry in there squeeze and you're done. I even tried it with and olive just to have some fun and that worked quite well also. This is a handy tool to have in your kitchen....for sure!

I have had great success with this product so far. It absolutely housed cherries for me this summer, and then was a fantastic success for the medjool dates I needed to pit for Thanksgiving, but I didn't want to split the date itself (I piped in some boursin cheese and wrapped the dates in a half slice of bacon...mmmmmyesssss!) - I have not used the product on olives, but could see how some of those might be difficult - some olives are super attached to their pits, and I have difficulty getting all the flesh off, even when using my teeth

As some other people have mentioned, the pit catcher at the bottom is rather useless, but it is easily removable, and if you want to leave it on, there is a "trap door" that you can just leave open, and pit over your garbage can.

Is this going to change your life? Probably not. Are you going to think it's super handy and helpful when you need to pit a boat load of cherries for your next pie or crumble? you sure are!

Wow! I saw the other reviews and while this is not the greatest thing since sliced bread, it works well for us, and was not expensive.
I agree that the catch for the pits is rather cumbersome, but so what...dont use it.

One reason I used to dislike purchasing those wonderful cherries is I did not like spitting out the pits. This little gizmo pits the cherry one-at-a-time by pushing the pits out the bottom of the cherry and holds the pits in the little cup in the bottom. When it gets full, the bottom flips open and you can dump the seeds out. You do need to pull the stem off of the cherries prior to pitting them. The only waste is maybe the tiny little piece of cherry that was in the way of the pit that sometimes gets pushed into the little cup. I throw the seeds and all out for the birds. They can eat the bits of cherry. The plunger is not hard to push, because my 6 year old managed it, but my 4 year old could not. I have purchased so many cherries since I bought this Cherry Pitter. It is well worth the expense.

Our family does not consume a lot of cherries, so I was looking for something reasonably inexpensive to help with the occasional pitting operation (I don't do olives, so I never considered whether or not this device might work on olives; and, indeed, the packaging didn't say anything about olives, only cherries, so maybe the description on Amazon needs to be revised to remove the mention of olives).

I had previously tried the paper clip technique (based on a suggestion from an online recipe site), which worked fine, but for me was really tedious, and hard on the fingers.

The Zyliss cherry pit remover works just great, and feels virtually effortless. The packaging suffered from a distinct lack of instructions (so I only gave it 4 stars), but I was able to figure it out fairly quickly. The trap door on the reservoir is a bit hard to open (although if you overfill the reservoir, the door will quickly pop open on its own). Most of the time I just twist the reservoir off to empty it, and that works fine. Obviously, some splattering occurs through the opening of the splatter guard, but all in all I thought this cherry pitter does a great job for the price.

This economical cherry pitter worked very well. My hand did become a bit sore but I was pitting over 2 lbs of cherries. It was a great purchase for the money. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

Sometimes the parts are a little tricky in how they want to work together. Once it's all assembled, this little thing just goes to town doing its job and catching the pits. It made short order of a nice big bag of cherries that I bought on sale! Yay for getting men to eat fruit!

This works, but not easily. The metal part that pushes the pit out catches on the side of the hole sometimes. The little door that opens to get the pits out is hard to open. The splash guard broke off easily within the first pound or so of cherries. Is okay to use for small quantities, but for large amounts this pitter is inefficient and uncomfortable.
