I do this very similar to the way the video shows, but I have never flipped over the melon into a bag, I scoop out the chunks with a spoon.

I've had good luck using the smaller watermelons and a friend showed me a neat trick. Slice the watermelon in half so you have two rounds. Then slice each round into 3 or 4 more slices. Cut those in half and then cut each half into 3 or 4 triangular slices. You end up with these great triangle-shaped pieces with rind that are so much easier to eat than a big slice. Kids eat them like candy because they're so easy to handle and each piece is not huge.

I've tried this with regular-sized watermelon but the triangles are too long, so the smaller size works better. I agree with no kudzu on dealing with seeds.
You lost me. How do I cut each round? If I'm going to further slice them in circles, why did I need to cut the watermelon in half to begin with?

Ease of handling. I know, I need a video! Cut each round in half. Cut each half into 3 or 4 triangles, depending on how big you want each piece to be.
