Tried it with a range of cherries including large ripe ones but it did not work. At best it pushed out the stone plus loads of juice but often it just pushed through loads of flesh or missed the stone and sharp spike threatened to bury itself in your hand instead.
Will be returning mine.
Much easier and quicker to use a chopstick and manually push out stone. I had been looking for a proper cherry stoner for many years but clearly this M&S one does not fit the bill.
