Product Description

Mangos are sweet, juicy and delicious, but often a chore to prepare. Not anymore, with the OXO Good Grips Mango Splitter. One simple press removes the seed and cuts the fruit in half. The Mango Splitter slices cleanly through the fruit and leaves almost nothing behind on the seed. Soft grips cushion while you press and the stainless steel blades are sharp and sturdy.

Amazon.com

There's nothing as luscious as a ripe mango. Growing in popularity, mangoes are now available in many stores year-round and can be eaten fresh, cubed into salads, or sliced and baked on top of chicken breasts. Helping prepare the fruit for eating is this ingenious mango splitter from OXO. The splitter is a circular white plastic device with sharp stainless-steel blades in the center and OXO's signature black comfort handles on two sides. Holding both handles, the user pushes the blades down through the mango from the top, separating the seed from two halves of mango. The flesh can then be cubed or sliced off the skin on those two halves. After the prep work, the mango splitter slips right into the dishwasher for hassle-free cleaning. --Ann Bieri

Customer Reviews

It's easy to use, easy to clean (dishwasher safe).
Vivian K. Landsburg
It doesn't work for very large mangoes because they don't fit through and it doesn't work for very small mangoes because it leaves too much on the pit.
Paigeb
If you love mango's this splitter makes cutting them so much easier.

Always avoided buying Mangos because of the hassle cutting them. Noticed this tool on Amazon and decided to give it a try (although I did not expect it to work). The design is quite ingenious. The cutting blade is flexible enough to "hug" the pit and cut the fruit away. I would highly recommend.

I agree with the earlier poster that this device allows you to make mango salsa much faster. Yes there is still a little cutting to get meat off the seed, but most of the work is done instantly and painlessly.

Pros:

Makes seeding a mango almost instant

Cons:

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

This little invention I just bought cuts out a lot of mango and a lot of BS. I pay about $1.50 per mango, so losing flesh in cutting the things up is like a punch in the throat. Mangoes are well connected to their skin and seed, making it hard not to waste or at least end up with a million little hacked off pieces and cut up hands.

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.

I was so excited after the first time I used this tool. I was amazed at how easily I was able to split my way through a mango. With moderate pressure, this tool whizzed right through the mango without a problem and I ended up with two perfectly sliced halves. As I am a mango fanatic, it was love at first sight with this tool.

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.

I'm a mango fanatic, and owning this splitter makes life a bit easier. But there's also something to keep in mind if you happen to buy this model. The blades are sharp, but if you buy a mango that isn't firm enough, they may not cut through the skin (and create a bit of a mushy mango when you press down).

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.

Oxo Mango Splitter
-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!

Just what we didn't need was another kitchen gadget, but this one made sense and it really works.

Mangoes are becoming ever more popular and available at most markets year around. The downside is that it is difficult to separate the flesh from the seed. It usually results in a mashed mango using traditional methods.

The OXO Mango Splitter makes it foolproof to quickly and easily split the fruit while simultaneously removing the hard seed.

So much better for making massive amounts of Mango Salsa!

As a hardcore foodie and an enthusiastic home chef, I have general disdain for cook's tools that serve only one purpose. Especially if the task can be accomplished easily with a standard kitchen tool.

That said, I wanted to see what all the fuss with this mango splitter was about. It's been featured in many cooking magazines and seems to be a top seller on Amazon this summer. So, I couldn't resist, and figured I'd just give it away if it turned out to be another extraneous tool, taking up space in my too-small kitchen.

So, I bought it. And I used it. And I was impressed.

As a lifelong mango lover, I'm really pretty good at cutting up mangoes and have never seen it as a chore or a difficulty. But, with this little tool, I was totally amazed at how much mango you actually got in the end. I would estimate that I got 25% to 50% more mango than when I cut it myself, depending on the ripeness of the fruit. It really did impress me, and I was delighted to have a much larger serving of fruit, with the same amount of work.

Do note that you do still need to use a knife to remove the skin from the two halves, so the tool doesn't perform miracles! Still, I won't be putting it in my next box for the thrift store. And I will definitely be buying even more mangoes from now on!
