Pitting cherries can be slow, messy and frustrating.  It may take several tries to get the pit out and the stress on your hands is tiring, not to mention the juice splatter everywhere.  The Progressive International Cherry-It Pitter cleanly pits 4 cherries at once, dropping the cherry pits into a clear base container that captures all the mess.  Plus the simple stapler like motion of the cherry pitter requires little effort and is easy on hands.  Imagine enjoying delicious cherries in 1/4 the time.
