I purchased this item several months ago. Unfortunately pineapples remained expensive for awhile, so I found other uses for it until I found a sale!

Among the other uses I found for this tool: it's great for melon. The curved blade very neatly cuts chunks of canteloupe away from the rind with little to no waste, and you can easily scoop chunks out of your watermelon half and cut them into smaller chunks.

However, today was the fateful day that I had my first pineapple to try it out on. I was excited to give it a go. It wasn't a very ripe pineapple, apparently a bit harder than this was designed for. With the very first cut, it broke. I had even removed the peel first, forgetting that this tool is supposed to do that as well.

Even if the pineapple were very ripe, I don't think that it would have gotten through the skin without failure. So, I'd recommend it for softer fruits like melons, but I don't think it can handle something hard like pineapple core/skin.

HASH(0xa3b0b4b0) out of 5 stars No safe way to use this pineapple corer Dec 11 2008
By cyclista - Published on
I love fresh pineapple, so when I saw this at the grocery store I couldn't wait to try it. I'm a big fan of Progressive products. I followed the attached instruction to the letter. I cut off the top and bottom with another knife. I cut it in half long ways. Once that is done, there is no way to position the cutter so that it is always above your fingers. So when you are coming down with this very sharp blade, your fingers are underneath. Beware this cutter.

My favorite way to cut pineapple is with a big Santoku knife. I cut off the top of the pineapple. Then I cut another 3 or 4 inch slice off. I put the bigger side down. Then I cut off the sides. If I can't use the uncut portion of the pineapple, I cover the unused portion with plastic wrap, put it on a saucer, and put it in the refrigerator.

HASH(0xa4027024) out of 5 stars Doesn't work, flimsy metal blade Sept. 1 2008
By PR123 - Published on
I slice quite a bit of pineapple and was looking for a helpful tool. This didn't work. The metal blade is too flimsy for the heavy duty job of slicing through pineapple. With quite a bit of pressure and elbow grease, it barely cut through. You have to cut the pineapple manually to almost a perfect "square" before even using the tool, quite a bit of wasted fruit. The core section usually yields core in your final slice and cuts away good fruit. Messy and time consuming. Extremely dissapointing. Not even worth committing precious drawer space for. I've now since seen it at my local grocery store and Target.

HASH(0xa40b05d0) out of 5 stars Much less than expected April 30 2009
By H. Howerton - Published on
I purchased this product at Target after browsing the gadget aisle. Purchased a pineapple because I was so anxoious to try out my new pineapple corer. I started using this cool little tool and 1/2 way through one side of the pineapple the thin flimsy blade broke loose from the plastic piece it is attatched too. Needless to say I didn't even make it through a whole pineapple with it. Great idea, extremely poor design.

This corer does the job. It requires a little finesse to move the blades through the pineapple, but that comes quickly. What you're left with is a large hunk of sweet pineapple, without skin or core. I've used it about three or four times now, and I've learned to place the pineapple on a plate when coring it, because it will catch the few tablespoons of juice that appears. I put that juice into the container with the pineapple. I'm still a slightly awed by how store bought pineapples all seem to be the exactly the right diameter to match this tool. You'd think there'd be some pineapples that would be too large to work efficiently, or too small to work at all. I haven't seen one yet.
HASH(0xa49a627c) out of 5 stars Not what I thought April 9 2014

When I saw the ad, I thought it was primarily a corer, but the trick is that you cut it in half, then force this thing down, which I haven't tried yet. As I see it, all the pineapple I'm going to get is between the two rings; the rest is garbage, even though I'm sure a lot of the discarded part is going to be good. I'd like just a corer. Let me trim the outside with my knife. I would then make slices, then cut the core out. The handle looked like it might be a corer in the ad.
