Cherry Pitters for Canning, Baking, Cooking and Eating Fresh

Norpro Cherry Pitters / Stoners

If you have fresh cherries and you want to do anything with them, you will definitely need a cherry pitter or cherry stoner. There are two basic types the hand held one-at a-time design sold in grocery stores, and the much more practical table model shown at left.

Comments from a visitor on June 09, 2012: "I have one of these cherry pitting "machines" and it works great! much faster than doing each cherry by the hand pitter...but sometimes the cherries get pitted on the side instead of straight down the middle. it doesn't make a difference in the apperance of your canned jars, though."

  • Norpro Deluxe Cherry Stoner/Pitter


    Blake, 2012: I got one of these and it does very, very well!

    Comments from a visitor on July 1, 2010: "I wanted to let  you know about the Norpro Deluxe Cherry Stoner/Pitter. These things are GREAT!!!  They pit cherries reliably and remarkably fast!  Just tell your readers to NOT lose the orange inserts (they may be other colors now) that come with the cherry pitter.  They're definitely necessary to actually pit the cherries."

    Old-Fashioned Food Colander / Strainer

    This is just like the colander that my grandmother (and probably yours) used.  So many people have asked me where to get one of these, that I finally found one.  It looks very well made. On the other hand, I usually prefer the hand-crank or motorized strainers for anything but a small batch.

    GOOD: KitchenAid K45WSSWH Classic Series 4-1/2-Quart Stand Mixer with Spatula, White



    BETTER: KitchenAid KSM150PS Artisan Series 5-Qt. Stand Mixer with Pouring Shield


    BEST VALUE: Factory-Reconditioned KitchenAid RRK150ER Artisan Series 5-Quart Mixer, Empire Red (or other colors)




    BEST: KitchenAid KP2671XWH Professional 6-Quart Stand Mixer, White




    KitchenAid Attachments: Food Strainer

    Add these to any of the KitchenAid's above, and in addition to the mixer dough maker and other attachments included you can make applesauce with ease, strain seeds from blackberries, make seedless/skinless tomato sauce and ketchup, make sausage grind and strain all kinds of fruits, vegetables and meats.

    If you make more than a dozen jars of applesauce per year, it's worth it for that alone!

    I've had mine for 20 years and make about 120 quarts of applesauce every year with it, so I know it works and holds up!

    To use the strainer you will ALSO need the grinder, to which the strainer attaches. See the next item below:


    The food grinder alone

      The food grinder plus the sieve


    Kitchen Aid Attachments: Food Grinder

    You can buy the food grinder by itself, or bundled with the food strainer / sieve.  If you have neither, obviously, the bundled package is the best value!

    I've had mine for 20 years and make about 120 quarts of applesauce every year with it, so I know it works and holds up!
