In this video, Phoebe Lapine shows you a simple trick for how to cut many cherry tomatoes in half, all at once!
All you have to do is place plate upside down on the counter to use the bottom lid. In this space, place a balanced amount of cherry tomatoes on this bottom lid. Then, place another plate over-top. Grab a sharp knife, and apply a small amount of pressure to the top plate. Using the knife just cut through these cherry tomatoes horizontally while holding down the plate with slight pressure to make sure the tomatoes stay put. And there you have it, an easy way to cut many cherry tomatoes without having to cut them one by one!

00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:02.619
00:00:02.619 --> 00:00:05.769
Cherry tomatoes are an amazing
addition to every meal, but
00:00:05.769 --> 00:00:09.957
cutting a lot of them in half, one after
the other can get a little bit tedious.
00:00:09.957 --> 00:00:13.110
I'm gonna show you an easy trick for
00:00:13.110 --> 00:00:16.620
cutting a lot of cherry
tomatoes in half all at once.
00:00:16.620 --> 00:00:19.630
So I've got here a little saucer
00:00:19.630 --> 00:00:23.190
with a lip that's gonna hold all
of my cherry tomatoes in place.
00:00:23.190 --> 00:00:26.320
So I'm just gonna add a nice even layer
00:00:27.580 --> 00:00:31.696
of cherry tomatoes to this plate so
that they fit rather snugly.
00:00:31.696 --> 00:00:35.140
And then I'm gonna take a second plate and
00:00:35.140 --> 00:00:37.970
put it right on top to hold them down and
00:00:39.610 --> 00:00:43.900
Got my nice sharp knife and
I'm just gonna put mild pressure,
00:00:43.900 --> 00:00:49.159
just make sure I'm getting them right
in half and just cut directly through.
00:00:51.310 --> 00:00:56.179
And that my friends is how
you cut cherry tomatoes
00:00:56.179 --> 00:00:59.989
in half all at once in one easy motion.
00:00:59.989 --> 00:01:05.449
