  1. I think I’d use the melon one the most – we eat a lot of melon in our house and it’s a pain to slice and dice.

  2. The pepper corer would save me a lot of time, and my son loves peppers, so this definitely comes in handy.

  3. I definitely want the melon baller…I love melon but struggle to make it appetizing for picky eaters.

    I think I would love to try the pepper corer. I really hate dealing with all the pits and this looks so easy and efficient!

  7. avatar says: caron

    I would love the melon scooper and pepper pitter. I serve a lot of melon in the summer. I make really wonderful sorbets for yom tov. And now is when the fruit is in its prime.

  8. avatar says: MitchM

    My son loves avacado so that set would be nice.

  9. avatar says: Halle

    These look like very handy tools

  10. I’d use the melon slicer. I LOVE melon in the summer and would use this all the time!

  11. I live in Florida where melons are available and plentiful year round. I like to serve fruit as part of dessert on Shabbos and Yom Tov but do not sometimes because it is a hassle to cut the melons. BUT NOT ANY LONGER. I would use the melon scooper and have a lovely fruit platter done easily. I would love to win the melon scooper (and the other gifts as well-big salad eaters in our house)

  12. avatar says: faigy

    I would love the salad dressing mixer – I’m always trying new recipes!

Examples of this are perfectly round cookie dough for baking, coring apples, creating balls of butter set on fancy mini plates at dinner party, making mini meatballs for hors d’oevres, pumpkin carving, etc.
