    I used to work in Restaurants cutting melons frequently! Trust me, it was a buffet style restaurant so taking less time cutting is a must! The easiest, quickest, and safest way to cut them is to cut off each end and stand it up on one of the cut ends and start cutting the skin down the sides. After that cut in half, scoop out the insides and place flat side down on cutting board and do the slicing and dicing!! It takes no time at all and you don't have to worry about knife accidents

    I'm not sure how this stops the juicy mess. I use this all the time and it doesn't matter how you slice them if they are juicy they make a mess on the counter, as it runs off the cutting board. The idea above looks excellent and I will try it.

    Try cutting them on a cookie sheet, that way the juicy mess in on it instead of the counter.
