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.
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

For all the people complaining about it being dull:
1. Quit putting it in the dishwasher. That goes for anything with a sharp edge.
2. Quit slamming it down on hard surfaces. Go buy yourself a soft plastic cutting board and cut your mangos on that.
Once past the skin, somehow it always goes through the rest of the fruit correctly and does not hit the seed. Amaging.
Then, I take my ice cream scoop and scoop out the mango fruit from the 2 halves and use a pairing knife to trim the little bit of fruit off the seed.
So, it is fast and easy. And definitely much easier than doing it by hand would be.
I concede that there is a "learning curve" of sorts when first figuring out how to use the Mango Splitter. Here's some tips to get great results.
First, and foremost, you need to understand it's not like a bagel guillotine where you are forced to push straight down. So don't do it. Instead, 1) use a rocking motion to get the device started. If you just place the splitter on the mango and mash down, that's exactly what you're going to get - mashed mango. The rocking motion helps ease the "blade" into the skin, much like you would with a knife anyway; 2) guesstimate the seed's location, otherwise you can "skin" the seed or just plain get stuck on it; and 3) ease the splitter through the mango, letting the shape of the fruit guide you around the seed.
Yes, the splitter's not going to separate the seed from the fruit perfectly. There will be some fruit still attached to the seed, but I've mostly found it's not significant enough to spend the time or effort to worry about.
No, the splitter doesn't work with ALL types of mangoes. Let's get realistic. Champagne mangoes are probably too small to even bother with this device.
BOTTOM LINE: I recommend this Mango Splitter. Enjoy!
