Watermelon might be the unsung hero of the summer, so versatile and crowd-pleasing the Southern fruit is. From our most popular watermelon margaritas to the quintessential marinated watermelon salad to our watermelon chiffon pie destined to be a cookout centerpiece, watermelon recipes are sure to make any day feel brighter, fresher, and more delicious—which is why it's always smart to have a fully cubed watermelon on hand in the fridge, should an inkling for a juicy treat hit.

Put simply, watermelon cubes, whether eaten plain or turned into a summer masterpiece, make the perfect snack on any sultry Southern day. Anyone who has tried to artfully carve the fruit knows that cutting up a watermelon into perfect cubes without making a mess or wasting a quarter of the viable fruit is woefully harder than it seems. That is, until now. Turns out, there is an easy hack for that, and it involves a genius little gizmo that looks a lot like a miniature handheld windmill.

The best-selling Watermelon Windmill Cutter on Amazon seems simple enough in appearance and function, but it makes the whole process of turning a freshly bought melon into perfect squares in a fraction of the time it takes to do it all by hand. A single push of the cutter turns out multiple cubes in seconds without getting your hands dirty or contaminating the watermelon about to be served to friends and family. In fact, the stainless steel watermelon slicer is so confident in its abilities that it offers a full refund to anyone not happy with the results.

For $13 a pop, that seems like a deal any Southern watermelon enthusiast could use. Cut up as much watermelon as you can now to make our best-ever watermelon recipes or freeze the cubes to make watermelon treats long after the season is over. (BUY IT: $13; amazon.com)

Watermelon is the fresh ingredient to indulge in all summer long, starting with those margaritas.
