The Olive and Cherry Pitter used to pierce the cherries and olives is made from a sturdy, die-cast zinc. OXO uses zinc for its strength and hardness, resistance to corrosion, and outstanding finishing quality.
Considering that you may be pitting a few pounds of cherries or olives, you need a tool that is comfortable to handle for an extended period of time.
The Olive and Cherry Pitter understands that comfort is just as essential as practicality. This Olive and Cherry Pitter design include soft, comfortable, non-slip handles that absorb pressure each time you press down.
The Olive and Cherry Pitter shield is a unique feature that acts as a chute, directing juices downwards to protect the work area, hands, and clothing from splatters.
While it’s not flawless, the splatter shield does a decent job of keeping the work area (and yourself) clean from most of the juices that tend to squirt all over the place when removing pits. When you’re working with highly pigmented fresh fruit, this can be a huge bonus!
ACCOMMODATES DIFFERENT SIZES
Another great feature is that it accommodates different sizes of fruit, with no risk of mangling or bruising the various types. The crafty design of the holder can accommodate both large and small varieties of cherries and olives.
The outer circumference is perfect for large olive or cherry varieties like Bing and Rainier while the interior recessed cup secures smaller kinds.
Some customers, however, noted that there is a limit to how large of a fruit you can use. Bigger varieties of olives, like large green olives, could not fit properly in the mechanism.
EASY CLEANUP AND STORAGE
The Olive and Cherry Pitter and the splatter shield are both dishwashers safe for easy cleanup. However, we highly recommend washing them by hand.
Cleaning the Olive and Cherry Pitter in the dishwasher does have many risks that you ought to avoid: the coating can lose integrity, the color can fade, and the plastic can crack or scratch when washed at higher temperatures. Also, because of the small size of the splatter shield, it could potentially fall into the bottom and the dishwasher and be destroyed.
