Product Description

The ingenious Pineapple Slicer will peel, core, and slice a fresh pineapple in just 30 seconds. It works like a corkscrew, removing the flesh in perfectly formed rings, leaving the core in the shell.This set includes a small, a medium, and a large slicer. The one piece set has only the medium slicer.One turn, one slice, or the whole pineapple in one go. The shell remains intact for use as a desert or drinks bowl. No mess - no fuss!Fresh, juicy, perfect pineapple rings in less time than it takes to open a can!

Amazon.com

Fresh pineapple has a tropical, delicious taste … but many folks can’t figure out how to get past this fruit’s thorny exterior to the sweet inside and resort to buying those perfect little rings in a can. This pineapple slicer peels, cores, and slices a fresh specimen in less than 30 seconds so there is no excuse for ever buying canned pineapple again. To use this ingenious little tool, you must first cut the top off of your fresh pineapple. Next, place the slicer in the middle of the pineapple and push down while turning the handle in a clockwise motion. Pull the slicer straight out of the pineapple and--voila!--your perfect little rings come out with the tool while the rough shell stays behind. Finally, simply slide the handle off the slicer and the pineapple rings slide off with it. The pineapple shell remains intact so you can use it as a dessert bowl or as a glass for piña coladas. The slicer comes with three blades to tackle pineapples of any size. This tool has garnered several prestigious design awards from all over the world, including Germany’s Award for Good Industrial Design, Holland’s ION’s Good Industrial Design award, and Japan’s MITI Award for Excellent Foreign Product. --Cristina Vaamonde

After reading the high marks this was given, and because I have and like using other Vacu Vin products, I ordered this. Living in Hawaii, I have easy access to excellent fresh pineapple. After 30 plus years of cutting up the fruit, I've developed a quick method for getting the job done--but it IS somewhat messy to do. (Also thought it would be neat to have the option of using the shell to serve dessert or a drink.)
BUT it totally mangled the fruit! In retrospect I might have anticipated this, for the following reasons:
1. The cutters all are plastic, and using them to cut a fibrous fruit--and the even more fibrous core--is similar to using a plastic knife in lieu of a real steak knife: It can be done, but it's an effort.
2. Yes, I tried each of the cutters. All had the same sized core-removal portion, which is way too small for the pineapples I buy here; only the outer diameter on each of the cutters varies.
3. Not only does this gadget assume that the core will be relatively small, it assumes that it will be VERY straight and very centered--a mistake, for the core often is slightly off-center and often widens near the base.
After ten minutes, I gave up on this gadget and did what I normally do: Got out two cutting boards (one for the cored wedges, one for the original fruit, then used my trusty 20 cm (8 inch) Wusthof Trident serrated bread knife in the following steps.
1. Cut off the prickly top of the pineapple with a margin of 1/2 to one inches
2. Cut a slice off the bottom, with about the same margin. These two cuts give you a nice flat end, top and bottom.
3. Cut the pineapple first into quarters, then into eighths
4. Remove the core from each wedge (easily visible from the side) by standing it on end and slicing it top to bottom
5.

I bought one of these for my wife, and I must say, I'm amazed. I love fresh pineapple, but hate the bother of cutting it up, and making sure you don't get any of the core or the woody part. This impressive little invention does it all for you, and quite rapidly, as well. It's the type of gadget that can be used right out of the box, within a minute of looking at it, and it works right every time!
Highly recommended!

Alright, I don't know how really fresh the pineapple is in Michigan, but they sell it at the grocery store. My family just loves fresh pineapple, (the canned stuff can stay in the can), but it is such a hassle to try to clean and core and slice the pineapple. NOT WITH THIS gadget!
In less than one minute, I can peel, core, slice and serve fresh pineapple rings, with very little mess to clean up afterwards. Even better, the shell remains intact for use as a fancy serving bowl along with the watermelon bowl! We are having fresh pineapple more often, and the memories of the Hawaii trip are discussed each and every time the perfect pineapple is served.
With three different blade singes, almost all pineapple sizes are covered. A great little gadget for the price!

On a recent blog that I read the Vacu Vin Pineapple Easy Slicer was mentioned favorably. It sounded interesting and the price was right, so I bought one. Then I thought back and realized I had never purchased a whole pineapple. My entire experience with pineapple at home had been of the canned variety, so I was looking forward to trying this.

I bought what I had hoped was a ripe pineapple at my local grocer and brought it home. Although it didn't look very confusing I was surprised that it contained very little instruction. Just a few small pictures on the box, but here is how it works:

1. Cut off the top of the pineapple. (I cut significantly less than what the picture showed - it seemed like that would waste too much.)
2. Decide on the size blade you need. (The suggest going by weight, but I chose based on the width of the pineapple.)
3. Take slicer and start twisting down into the pineapple. (It's the same motion you would use turning on an outside faucet.)
4. Once you reach the base of the pineapple, pull up to remove the fruit.

What I ended up with was some beautifully ripe, juicy pineapple and if you just cut straight down into the layer you will have pineapple rings. For me there was very little waste and it took less than 3-4 minutes to do it. That night we added the juice to some chicken marinade and then grilled the pineapple. What a difference FRESH pineapple makes!! I also like that the pineapple shell can be used for display (or even better by serving pina coladas in it). I added a picture so that you can see a little bit of what to expect.

It's amazing...you will never buy canned pinapple again. Just twist it in, and watch it cut through. When you reach the bottom, just twist out while pulling up on the handle, and the rings come right out. The core remains inside. Just slide the rings off the blade, and you are done. I eat fresh pinapple with breakfast, and as a healty snack each evening.
The shells make great party decorations!
Highly recommended.

This ranks as my top kitchen gadget purchase ever! The three different size slicers make it easy to slice any size pineapple, and it leaves the outside intact... making a great fruit dish for entertaining.
Plus, you don't lose all that yummy pineapple juice on your cutting board. When the pineapple is removed, the extra juice remains inside and you can enjoy a small cup of fresh pineapple juice in addition to the perfectly cut pineapple rings.
I would highly recommend this product. I use it frequently, and with the time I've saved, it's easily been worth the modest price.
