This Simple Watermelon Hack Will Blow Your Mind And Impress Your Guests

YouTuber Dave Hax is a walking encyclopedia of food hacks. With more than 3.3 million subscribers on his YouTube channel, it’s safe to say Dave knows what he’s talking about. He’s hacked everything, showing us the most efficient way to slice cherry tomatoes, and the fastest ways to peel potatoes.

For this week’s hack, Dave showed us how to hollow out a watermelon — simply by using a pineapple slicer. By cutting off one end, and placing the blade onto the fruit and twisting, Dave was able to extract a good portion of the watermelon, without damaging any of the fruit. Since watermelon is a very fragile fruit once removed from the rind, this is an excellent way to consider slicing watermelon.

Once the watermelon is hollowed out, the possibilities of what to put in it are essentially limitless. Add a mixture of juices for a tropical fruit punch, which a few shots of alcohol can turn into a refreshing summer cocktail.

Whatever you decided to do, just be sure to thank Dave.
