‘I was speechless when I saw how this watermelon fork works. You can clean this watermelon seamlessly at any angle using this, said Adrian.
Fans go wild for the ‘fantastic’ product and are desperate to get their hands on one.
“Love this,” said one woman.
‘I’m obsessed,’ wrote one happy customer.
Others recommended that an inexpensive way to make the product yourself would be to bend the two outer fork legs inward.
“Bend two ends of the fork and do the same,” said one man.
Some people were not convinced that the gadget was a necessity.
‘Practical? Just use a knife,” one man commented.
‘I appreciate the spirit of the invention, but maybe it wasn’t made because it wasn’t needed.’
What are the best gadgets for cutting watermelon?

The foodie previously shared a different watermelon slicer that ‘easily’ dices watermelon.
The watermelon ‘windmill’ slicer costs $30 on Amazon and can be used for a variety of fruits, including melon and papaya.

These gadgets will work best if the fruit is ripe.
The green lines on a watermelon are a good indicator of whether the watermelon is ripe or not, they should be at least two fingers wide if it is ripe.
People have different theories about how to know if the watermelon will be sweet or not.
Some believe that if the root point on the bottom of the watermelon is small, it means that the fruit is super sweet, others believe that the watermelon is sweet if the entire fruit is large and round, if there is an orange discoloration, or if it has tissue.
Top three fruit cutting hacks
* To cut a watermelon into perfectly even slices without wasting an inch, use a piece of dental floss, first run it along the bottom of the watermelon still attached to the rind, then trace the inside of the rind with the floss, the fruit can be easily cut into right triangles
* To juice a lemon without drying it out, roll it on the bench to loosen the flesh inside and then poke a hole in the top of it. The hole inside the fruit will allow juice to immediately flow out of it when needed without drying out over time
* To easily mince a kiwi, use a whisk head from an electric mixer, push the whisk into the fruit and then gently twist to remove the flesh from the skin and reveal perfect bite-size pieces
