Is there anything more wonderful than taking a bite of fresh watermelon on a hot summer’s day?
In this video, Phoebe Lapine shows you how to cut a watermelon. Start by grabbing your chef’s knife and cut your watermelon in half. Once your watermelon is cut into two halves place one half on a cutting board. Now, you’ll want to cut some horizontal slices along your watermelon half. Once that has been completed, rotate your watermelon 90 degrees and cut again. That’s all there is to it! Now that you know how to cut a watermelon you can sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

[SOUND] Who doesn't love some fresh
fruit on a bright summer day.
00:05.550 --> 00:09.610
I'm Phoebe Lapine and I'm going to show
you a better way to prepare watermelon.
00:09.610 --> 00:13.211
So first I'm going to take my chefs knife,
and cut the watermelon in half.
00:13.211 --> 00:18.776
So you can do so by just kind of levering
it around, until you get a nice footing.
00:18.776 --> 00:21.750
And hold it with your hands and
just go all the way through.
00:21.750 --> 00:26.606
Now that we have these two halves, I can
safely put one of them cut side down and
00:26.606 --> 00:29.092
first I'm gonna cut some horizontal.
00:29.092 --> 00:34.180
[SOUND] Slices, now I am just going
00:34.180 --> 00:41.459
to rotate the watermelon 90 degrees and
00:41.459 --> 00:47.330
[SOUND] All right so
now I have a beautifully
00:47.330 --> 00:51.358
sectioned watermelon, and
00:51.358 --> 00:57.080
your guests can just grab a slice and go.
00:57.080 --> 01:01.796
