Melonello by i Genietti

Melon Cutter & Server

Mess-Free Melons

We're big fans of the Angurello watermelon slicer, and when we told the Makers we wished it worked better on smaller melons, they listened.

Melonello is like a knife and tongs combined into one stainless steel tool. It slices, lifts, and serves melon neatly and evenly in one motion, sans the rind. It’s just as effective and
amazing to watch as its larger counterpart that was created for watermelons. But this scaled down design is just for cantaloupes, honeydews, and other smaller melons.

The Makers of both tools is i Genietti, a third-generation family company in Tuscany. They’re stainless steel specialists who are always striving to create clever solutions for everyday tasks—hence the name, “The Geniuses”, in Italian. They’ve certainly solved our melon dilemma.

    @Catherine - Good morning Catherine. It is a new product and it was suggested by The Grommet. Honey Dew and Cantaloupe are smaller than watermelon and can be firmer to slice through so we created Melonello exactly for this purpose. Have a wonderful day Catherine. Michael.

    I already have your watermelon slicer. Is this a replacement?

    @Jerome . Great question. Its a new product specifically designed for Honey Dew and Cantaloupe. The original Angurello was designed for watermelon and this product has specific design features that make cutting Cantaloupe and Honey Dew a cinch.

    Can the melon slicer be used for watermelon?

    Another great question. The new tool is designed for the smaller melon that has firmer flesh. It is shorter and not the ideal product for watermelon.

    As an aside, melonello is exclusive to the folks at The Grommet.

    Thanks for your help.

    I see the blades on both sides, but how does it cut underneath? How does it detach the slice from the melon rind? Do you just tug and that thin strip of melon breaks?
