Product Description

From zero to sectioned in 12.6 seconds flat. You'd think someone would come up with a better way to section citrus. In 2003, that someone was Chef'n®. Introducing the Grapefruiter¿, for easy, no mess sectioning in seconds. Simply insert the Grapefruiter¿ into a halved grapefruit and squeeze. Release or remove the grapefruit section and enjoy! Chef'n began twenty years ago based on the principle that kitchen products could be a lot smarter, easier and more fun. Right from day one, Chef'n found an audience hungry for its brand of Tasteful Ingenuity. Today that legacy lives on with the precision refinements to acclaimed inventions, new technologies, design techniques, and entirely new products for 2006.

Customer Reviews

I recommend this to everyone who loves to eat grapefruit.
Michael
I find it wastes a lot of grapefruit, it doesn't cut well so it takes too much work to get out a single piece, and it makes quite a juicy mess.
Jill A. Langer
I ended up returning it stating it does not perform as advertised.

Chef'n has done it again! I've owned this gadget for more than two years and can't live without it. I'm amazed this thing hasn't swept the globe. It's truly an incredible invention that makes quick work sectioning grapefruit. And it's actually fun to use! Just plunge the business end of the tool into the grapefruit (preferably so the edge of the blade is even with the edge of the grapefruit section), squeeze the handle, and pull the tool back out. Release the handle and a section of grapefruit falls out of the tool and into your bowl. You can section half a grapefruit in 30 seconds! It says it works on oranges, too, but haven't tried it yet.

I bought this grapefruiter because I have a 6 year old as well as a grandmother in the nursing home who both love grapefruit. They both need help sectioning it so I have always been on the look out for something to make this process easier and this is it. It only took me one try or two to find the perfect position to get the whole section of fruit out. It is a snap! I am buying another one as a gift.

I've been using this for a few months now and I love it. I buy a lot of citrus and this little gadget is oh so much better than trying to do it the old fashioned way. Takes a little bit of a learning curve to get the hang of it and I would like to see better instructions, but the video on the website helps. This works OK with oranges as well if you don't mind pulling 2 sections at a time instead of one. As for leftover fruit in the shell, what's the big deal? Just squeeze it over your bowl for the good juice and there is no waste.

What I would like to see is better construction though. I'm not sure this is going to hold up very well over time. I use it almost everyday and it is a little hard to clean and not overly well put together.

The product works well. Not sure how it will hold up over time, but seems like it should last a few years. It is very unique. More pictures of how it works online would be valuable for future buyers.

I use the chef'n tool one or two times a day and it is quick and sharp. I read the 1 star reviews and they said it left part of the fruit behind which is true. But you can minimize the lost fruit by plunging the tool straight down keeping the tip of V the blade as close to the center as possible and then angeling the moving blade part of the tool to line up with the outside edge.

I had the Orka Grapefruit Cutter prior to the chef'n tool and it got more of the fruit, but also more of the peel which I didn't like and the Orka also took longer to core the grapefruit.

My first chef'n tool lasted about 3 years, and I just bought another one. I am trying to keep it cleaner so the sticky dried grape fruit juice doesn't wear out the mechanism as quickly. I also lightly spray the mechanism monthly with PAM to keep it moving freely. (I may try throwing it in the dishwasher)

I don't work for chef'n. I am not being paid for this review. But I do like grapefruit and anyone else who does should try the chef'n tool.

Chef'n GF-352 Grapefruiter Citrus Sectioning Tool

As someone who sections well over 100 grapefruit a year to freeze for home use, this tool is a godsend. It takes some doing to learn and you do get some pith, but all in all it is wonderful and easy to use.

I paid about $10.00 at a local store and had it for 2 days....I used it only on Texas Grapefruit (which are very large) and after a little practice it worked with no waste at all!!! I had decided that the bad reviews were possibly "user's error" as stated previously. It was my new favorite gadget -since I pack my husband a half grapefruit almost every morning for breakfast. When it broke (believe me, I wasn't rough with it, or forcing anything) I was really surprised. I just assumed that maybe a spring came loose or something. But no! It was made with brittle cheap plastic inside, which (of course) was designed to break. Too many things are engineered to break today, so we will (like zombies) return and re-buy, over and over.......
I'm contemplating on returning it for a replacement instead of a refund. (I loved it that much). With that *plan* the gasoline trip every 2 days could make this really expensive! However -I really want to teach the cheap-scape's (who manufactured this wonderful design with faulty materials) a lesson. If we all kept forcing the goods back to them and replacing instead of re-buying....I wonder if we could change things.

Got this for my wife last Christmass and she loves it. She uses it 2-3 times a week and it is still as sharp and easy to use as when she got it. Great buy and great service from Amazon.
