The Easiest Way to Cut Watermelon

Over Memorial Day Weekend I learned that I have been cutting Watermelon wrong my entire life. The Boy and I love the show The Kitchen on Food Network. Within the show they have this segment called Food Hacks. When Geoffrey Zakarian, one of the chefs and hosts of the show, made the statement that we've been cutting watermelon wrong our whole like I was like, "No way, but I am going to watch this." He was right. After a trial this past weekend I back up his claim. His way really is the perfect way to cut a watermelon.

Step 1. Chill your watermelon in the fridge.
Step 2. Cut your watermelon in half.
Step 3. Cut lengthen ways across your watermelon. Trying to keep each cut the same width apart. About an inch works great.

You can see my knife skills weren't perfect but you get the point. 

Step 4. Pull out a slice an enjoy! 

There you have a it! There is hardly any mess, and it is a super easy way to serve your family or guests. Plus if you are making a salad or need cubes you can quickly slice up these sticks. 

In other news we are officially done calving! This little heifer calf was our only black calf this year and the second last calf to be born. I stole the picture from the Boy's @jjbcattleco Instagram account so you will have to go check him out. 


  1. We love The Kitchen too! Haven't watched that episode yet, we're like 4 behind. Thanks for sharing this tip, I'll definitely be trying it! The watermelons we grow are typically the "I carried a watermelon" size, a al Dirty Dancing... but even with those, I could still cut the strips into cubes. Have a great weekend!

    1. Myla, this was a little one, but on the show they did it with a big one. They also suggested putting the "sticks" on skewers and grilling them, which I thought sounded pretty good!

  2. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing. :)

  3. We'll have to go out and buy another watermelon. It's also a good source of vitamin C. :)

    Love that sweet little calf, too.

  4. Now I'm craving watermelon... I'll have to try this the next time we have one. (Which for our family means probably next week.)


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from all my readers. Hope you have a fabulous day.
