Hot to cut watermelon into cubes

Recommended Posts

Excellent. I which there was a repository of these ingenious ideas. Every once in a while a great idea like this is circulated, like the one about peeling a banana from the bottom.

Interesting but I don't like the way his starts by slicing towards his other hand and arm. Seems like an accident waiting to happen. (I know from experience  :shock:  that you always want to cut away from yourself)

I can't find a video of the Alton Brown method, but here's a blog post that shows the concept.

Basically, you trim off an end to give the watermelon a level surface to sit on, then you cut off the entire rind, then you cut the flesh of the watermelon into cubes. On his show, he did it with an electric knife, but I do it with my big butcher knife the same way.
