Slicing a lot of cherry tomatoes individually can be kinda tedious. Here is how to do it with minimal time or effort and with thing you probably already have in your kitchen. This trick has been floating around the internet for a while – and it really is a game changer.

All you need for this hack is a bunch of cherry tomatoes, two plastic tops from storage containers, and a very sharp knife.

1. Place the tomatoes on the lid of one of the containers.

2. Place the other lid on top of the tomatoes and hold down the lid with one hand to keep everything in place.

3. Slice through the tomatoes.

Ta-da! The sliced cherry tomatoes of your dreams.

Have you tried this before? How did it work out for you – and do you think it was worth the hassle of dirtying two lids?
