But, a few weeks ago, I was thumbing through the Lehman's Catalog (love all the fun things in there!) and found this cherry pitter. At first, I was a bit put off by the price, but finally decided to order it and give it a try.
As far as I could tell, it got all the pits out. I have not yet eaten all the cherries I pitted, but the ones that I sampled were pit free.
**UPDATE - There were a few missed pits; 2 that I found in about 3 pounds of cherries. I'm still happy with the pitter. Even professionally pitted cherries end up with a few pits, so this pitter is a keeper for me.**
