Baking cherry pies, canning cherries, and making homemade preserves are no longer the pits. This cherry pitter features a removable splatter shield that directs juices downward and prevents them from soiling your work area. When not in use, the splatter shield fits inside the front chamber and a lock holds the cherry pitter closed for convenient storage. The pitter removes pits with ease, and soft, comfortable non-slip handles absorb pressure while you squeeze. The cherry holder is extra large to accommodate larger-sized cherries, like Bing cherries, and has a recessed cup to securely hold smaller varieties when pitting.
