A Genius Hack for Slicing Cherry Tomatoes


James Ransom

Slicing cherry tomatoes individually can be kind of time-consuming. While we’re never opposed to just eating them whole, sometimes you’ve got to slice into them.

Here’s a quick tip for halving handfuls of cherry tomatoes at a time, using a few things you probably have lying around your kitchen.

If you’ve got any other tips or tricks for dealing with tomatoes, share them with us in the comments!

First, you need two lids from plastic containers. Set one on your counter, right side-up, and fill it with a single layer of tomatoes. Place the other on top, upside-down.

Hold the top lid to keep everything in place, and carefully slice through the tomatoes with a serrated knife.

And that’s it: instantly halved cherry tomatoes. Now go enjoy the rest of tomato season.
