I bought this plastic pineapple slicer just because it was doscounted and got a great deal for it. I have to say I was not expecting much from this pile of plastic, but it turned out to be one of the most handy utensils I own. It does 3 different things at the same time. It peels, cores and slices fresh pineapple with ease. Simply cut the crown off the pineapple, positioning the cutting disk on the pineapple and twist whilst pushing down slightly. Instantly, you'll have perfect pineapple rings or chunks. Most of the juice is retained during the process to save making a big mass (it depends how soft the pineapple is). Only taking about a minute to do it is easy for everyone, plua the shell remains intact for use as a desert or drink bowl.
