We asked readers of the Recipe Box blog to identify the kitchen item pictured.
Most of you correctly said it was a tool for removing pits — some thought it might be used for both olives and cherries, but the box refers strictly to the latter. It is the Cherry-It Pitter, which pits four cherries at once. It sells for $14.99 and is available at Bed, Bath & Beyond and other retailers.
This week’s randomly selected winner is John M.
