As a hypoglycemic, I eat a lot of fruit. Particularly, I love pineapple. But, I hate cutting one up. So, when I found this Pineapple Slicer and Wedger at Bed, Bath and Beyond a year or so ago, I got really excited.
So is it worth the $9.99 price tag? Nope. Skip it. Here are my complaints:
- I get a lot less pineapple with this than if I cut the pineapple myself.
- I”m not convinced it saves time.
- Despite the demo video on Beth Bath and Beyond’s website, it’s really hard to drive it down into the pineapple. Think of me comedically putting all of my body weight on top of the darn thing to have enough pressure to get it into the pineapple.
- Again, despite the demo video, the core of the pineapple always ends up stuck in the Pineapple Slicer and Wedger. Getting it out has left me with many bruises and one bloody hand.
I’ll go back to the old-fashioned way thank you very much.
