There's a bumper crop of sweet cherries here in New York State right now. New York is expected to produce 13 million pounds this year, the Cherry Marketing Institute tells us. That's a 25% increase over the 2006 crop and 73% more than 2005.

We're never in favor of filling kitchen drawers with too many gadgets, but if you're getting serious about cooking with this huge cherry crop check out Oxo's new cherry pitter ($12 at Williams-Sonoma).

This cherry pitter works so well. The pits pop out in one satisfying swoosh and the splatter guard stops cherry juice from flying. Best of all, it doesn't destroy the fruit. "This year, I finally found a cherry pitter that not only works, but works beautifully and easily enough to make a smooth go of pitting a handful of cherries to nibble on or a bucketful for a pie," says Canvas Magazine.

Technically, this isn't quite a single-use gadget. It can be used to pit olives too.
