Pineapple Slicer

This is one of those specialty kitchen tools that you think, well, am I really going to use it? And my answer is yes! I love my pineapple slicer. It makes preparing fresh pineapple such an easy task. I can have a whole pineapple cored and sliced in about 2 minutes without any of those pesky little brown bits left from the skin. Mine is from Pampered Chef and I’ve had it for several years. It works much like an apple corer/slicer, and is very sturdy. I looked on Amazon.com for similar designs, but nothing quite like it was there. I did see some used Pampered Chef cutters for sale on Amazon, and there’s always eBay.

This is how it works:

Cut the top and bottom of the pineapple with a knife. Line up the cutter.

Press down firmly. Sometimes a rocking motion is helpful in getting it the cut started.

It quickly removes the outer skin and slices the core.

Done!

The design of the cutter leaves you with two half-circle sides of the pineapple without the core.

You can then slice the halves into thin or thick slices for serving. Easy Peasy!
