Makes seeding a mango almost instant
I don't know what I'll do when this device eventually dulls (sharpening it will be difficult)
It doesn't handle the largest sizes of mangoes
The honeymoon was short-lived, however. After a handful of uses, I noticed I was having problems with my mango splitter. What once sailed through the mango was now giving me problems right from the get go. Just piercing through the top of the mango was work enough, and with the added pressure now required, my mangoes were quickly becoming mangled, mutilated messes, and my cutting board and counter tops would be drenched in mango juice. What's worse I could only get the implement about half way through the mango, but no more, and then I had a bear of a time retrieving the splitter from the fruit at all. At first I thought maybe I was using it on too ripe mangoes, and because I didn't want to give up on my beloved mango splitter, I gave it several more tries with mangoes of varying ripeness. Unfortunately, I killed at least a half a dozen mangoes in the process.
Bottom line...this implement works wonderfully from the start, but the blades quickly dull leaving you with a useless apparatus. I have 2 other friends that have had the exact same experience as me with the Oxo Mango Splitter, so I highly doubt it was only mine that had this problem. I have since returned to using my chef's nice to get at my mangoes. It's a bit of a pain, but at least no mangoes have to be killed in the process. Sorry, OXO, but you need to go back to the drawing board with this one.
The solution I used was to simply take a sharp knife and just make one or two cuts in the mango to serve as a guide for the splitter. Now that your splitter doesn't have to put up a fight with the mango's skin, it should easily finish the job.
After splitting the mango, you can also take your knife and cut the fruit (but not the skin) in a tic-tac-toe pattern. Flip that half of the mango inside-out, and now you've got perfect little mango cubes to eat as a snack or use in salads, no peeling necessary.
I didn't give it 5 stars simply because there is still a small bit of waste, but given the stubborn nature of the mango, that's inevitable. Someday someone will breed a mango that just pops away from the seed like a peach.
There's a slight learning curve on the tool, but I got it on my first try. I doesn't look like it should work but it does. Amazing and rewarding the first time you use it and have two robust shoulders taken off the seed.

-Easily separates two halves of fruit from pit. Then just score the fruit so that the skin lays flat and cut fruit from skin. There is no better way to cut a mango, so until something better comes along, this is a 5 star product.
-Another reviewer noted when the blades dull, it will be difficult to sharpen. True. I'll buy another for all the time and mess it saves!

This tool has been extremely handy. I love it. It makes cutting the seed out of a mango super easy. However, I deducted 1 star only because it didn't stay sharp for very long. Read morePublished 5 days ago by MommaOf3Girls

It squishes all the juice out of the mango even if the mango is very firm. Perhaps the blade is too dull.Published 1 month ago by James

I used to hate cutting mangos because I'd be covered in mango juice after the old-fashioned way of using a knife. This gets the mango away from the pit easily and neatly!Published 2 months ago by Carol M. Clark
It's so easy to cut up lots of mango. This works great so far. It really gets a lot of the mango away from the seed.Published 2 months ago by Kris
Blade is really dull and won't cut. Not sellers fault just horrible product.Published 2 months ago by Dan S.
Blade needs to be a bit sharper to cut tougher mango skins but once skin is fully cut- either by "jiggling" the tool or with the help of a small knife- it works well . Read morePublished 3 months ago by Phil Burgess
