Product Description

Product Description

A plastic tool that will peel, core & slice a fresh pineapple into perfect pineapple rings in seconds. Medium blade, gift pack.

Amazon.com

Fresh-cut pineapple is like a little taste of paradise--and if hacking up the whole spiky shebang weren’t such a royal pain, we’d probably all eat a lot more of it. Vacu Vin’s award-winning slicer takes the work and mess out of this tropical treat, peeling, coring, and slicing an entire pineapple in just 30 seconds. Equipped with a medium blade to fit most sizes of fruit, it works just like a corkscrew. Simply cut off the pineapple’s top and twist the cutter into its interior to create perfectly shaped rings; turn once to create just a single slice, or several times to cut up the whole fruit at once. The shell is preserved intact to use for a dessert or drink bowl, providing the perfect presentation for dessert or drinks at your next luau. This durable plastic slicer also makes a great hostess gift, especially for a beach party or vacation home visit. --Mary Park

I used my Vacu Vin about three times before the handle broke off, and contacted the company through their website about a replacement handle. After two weeks I received no response and emailed them a second time.

This time I received a hasty response as follows, "I have responded back to you 2 weeks ago and told you that we do not have extra pineapple slicer handles nor do we offer a warranty on this item."

As far as the three times that I was able to use the slicer, it sometimes worked nicely, and sometimes mangled the pineapple. There was always a lot of wasted fruit with this device since it is made to accommodate smaller pineapples as well as larger.

Save your money on this uni-tasker and practice your knife skills. Or if you really want one, America's test kitchen just recommended the Oxo ratcheting pineapple slicer on their recent TV episode. It looks wonderful and far superior to this piece of junk. Plus, Oxo gives you a lifetime satisfaction guarantee--and I've taken then up on this multiple times.

UPDATE: Only after notifying them of my intention to post a review with my experience, I received an email offering to replace the device.

This handy little slicer is easy to use and retrieves all of the edible parts of the pineapple with very little effort from me. Our kids get a kick out of watching the pineapple being cut into a fun swirl before digging in and enjoying. The empty shell can be used as a decorative server for cut fruit or drinks. The only problem we've encountered is if we cut the pineapple too close to the top it creates a suction when pulling the cut pineapple out out of its shell which results in the handle disconnecting from the bottom portion of the slicer. I think its a great gadget and have purchased one as a gift for friends.

Where has this pineapple slicer been all my life? Fresh pineapple is so much better than canned and this slicer makes preparing fresh pineapple a breeze. Easy to use and easy to clean up. This one is a winner!

I figured I would take the time to review this item...because when I got it I thought it was the coolest thing ever. It does do exactly what it say it can do...though it would be a lot easier is it was powered. My arm hurt a bit after because I needed to force it down with a lot of pressure into the pineapple. All in all...I do like it!

This was so easy to use. There was hardly any waste and the rings were perfect! Having the shell intact made a fun drink presentation. I like it!

Forget about messy cleanup and wasted (expensive) pineapple - this gadget is simple to use and quickly turns that intimidating hulk into a totally cored, ready-to-eat fruit. Use the cored pineapple shell for drinks or fruit displays. I believe the inventor won an international design prize of some kind - he/she deserves it! You will be eating fresh pineapple within 30 seconds, and it cleans in 10 seconds under running water.

I love this product! It takes all the hassle out of cleaning a pineapple. The shell is great to use as a serving bowl or for drinks too. Quick, easy to use and fast clean up - what more can you ask for?
