Product Description

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

It is great that it comes with 3 different size cutter blades.

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

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!

It's a bit awkward to use at first but once you get used to it, it's very useful. we were able to get a good cut the first time. it's important to pick the right size center piece to make sure it's clean on the edges, i would recommend this to people who like fresh pineapples or entertain a lot, great for a party for that bartender wanna be..

The price is right for what it gives you. one more thing to stick in the drawer.

UPDATE:
lower the stars.. not only do i not use this anymore.. can't find it.. got a pineapple cutting knife on last vacation to hawaii.. beats this thing hands down

Overall, I think this product is pretty useful and far less work than cutting pineapple with a knife. I purchased the version with multiple cutting sizes to accommodate different sized fruit. If you find cutting pineapple a chore and have room for one more gadget in your kitchen, you will probably appreciate this product. I really like this product for the quickness and ease of "gutting" most of the fruit from a pineapple. However, it's effectiveness does depend on how ripe your fruit is and whether the pineapple is firm or soft. If your fruit is pretty ripe and softening, then this product is a little bit messy and may "crush" your pineapple. If your fruit is quite firm, you may feel like you're getting an arm workout. But either way, with this item you can be snacking on the the heart of the pineapple fruit in two or three minutes - which is pretty cool.

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.

I have used this twice since purchasing and am wondering why it took me so long to buy it. I am a pineappleholic and have been used to spending at least 10 to 15 minutes slicing my pineapple for the week. This amazing tool has cut that time in half and is actually fun to use. It's inspired me to make a smoothie after I'm done just so I can drink from the shell. Very glamorous!!
