Leifheit Cherry Stoner : Leifheit Cherry Stoner is an amazing device that extracts cherry stones quickly and easily. The large feeder funnel holds up to 15 cherries, and the spring-loaded steel plunger punches stones out cleanly, leaving fruit whole. Processes up to 25 pounds of cherries per hour. A nonskid pad on the bottom anchors it firmly to the countertop. Easy to disassemble for cleaning. Dishwasher-safe. 6 3/4"L x 5 1/4"W x 9 1/2"H. Made in the Czech Republic,
The brief season is finally here for fresh cherries. There's hardly anything as tasty as fresh cherries, whether eaten "as is" or in a pie or tart. Stoning cherries by hand is so laborious that few people are willing to do enough for a large pie or tart.
This Leifheit Cherry Stoner is worth its weight in gold! I stoned 4 pounds of cherries in just a few minutes. As each cherry rolls into the stoning cavity, press the lever down very hard and fast. This "hard and fast" method allows the stone to be pressed out and gives the cherry enough force to pop out of the spout into your bowl. If you stone the cherries without force, the cherry often stays in the stoning spout. Do it hard and fast!
I have already made a large tart, a pie, and have served fresh cherries for a healthy desert and snacks. I have frozen several packs to enjoy in the winter.
I highly recommend this very cost and time effective Leifheit Cherry Stoner without reservation.
