Pop Chef Promises At-Home Fruit Arrangements…But Does It Work?

(WREG-TV) Fruit arrangements can get a bit pricey, so Pop Chef claims you can make quick and easy edible creations yourself for a fraction of the price.

But Does It Work?

Holly Ewing is a stay-at-home mother of two.

She home schools her second-grader and hopes the Pop Chef can be fun for the whole family, "They would have fun doing it, which would make them want to maybe try some new fruits and vegetables. "

The Pop Chef comes with the Pop Chef tool, ten skewers and six different shape cutters.

According to the instructions, watermelon, cantaloupe and kiwi work best, so that's what we used.

Holly sliced up the watermelon and attached the heart-shape cutter to the Pop Chef tool.

Ccutting into the watermelon wasn't an issue, but...

"It doesn't seem like it is popping out."

We had to use a skewer to pop out the watermelon ourselves.

Maybe the cantaloupe would fare better.

We used the heart shape cutter again for the cantaloupe and...

"Well, it's not working on the cantaloupe either."

Finally, we used a different shaped cutter and grabbed a kiwi.

In the end, it was nowhere near the shape you would proudly display, so we brought in the professionals.

Perhaps the kids would have better luck!

Holly's daughter tried a watermelon butterfly. Again, it was stuck in the cutter.

"That was pretty frustrating, and sometimes the skewers did not work!"

So much for easy as 1, 2 , 3!

Pop Chef, you failed the Does It Work test!

We contacted the maker of Pop Chef for their response to our Does It Work test, but have yet to hear back.
