the ‘pepo’ watermelon slicer is the latest work by designer avihai shurin for purveyor of quirky goods monkey business. ideal for kids and parties, ‘pepo’ is a no-mess way to eat watermelon. made of plastic and stainless steel, it’s plenty tough to cut through the flakey flesh of any perfectly ripe melon. to use, simply cut the fruit to desired thickness, and press the piece into it; like a cookie cutter. ‘pepo’ is available on monkey business’s site, here

a single piece can be cut several times; and leftovers can be cut with a knife to prevent waste

  • Looks fun for children, its a nice shape. However wouldn’t a shape that tesselated to use ALL the melon have been more useful? instead your left with thin, oddly shaped leftovers..
