Its wonderfull kristi!!
if you go to Amazon.com under housewares ....type in Pineapple slicer.. they have the one I got for 9.99 .. You can also get it a 3 size pack for small medium and large... I got just one that was Medium.. Check it out.. Its just so easy to use and does a great job .. I love pineapple but hate to try to cut into them till now. Check it out!

Is it a lot cheaper to buy a whole pineapple than having the grocer cut it for you?

Wow cool thanks for the link NWGal, that really looks awsome! Is it electric or does it work just by pressing down? I think I will definately have to order one of these, it's only four pounds in the UK for a set that will do small medium and large!

Its not electric . Thats great your getting the set!
Kristi.. Well its so cheap that I dont think it matters either way . I love having freshly cut Pineapple when ever I want it. And I like using the husk for diffrent things. Like Candle holder (smells great! ) dish for my fruits or a a glass for my raw juices and then i toss it in the compost :).. I just find it very fun :).. I Just realized in explaining this to you Kristi that it doesnt take much to amuse me

oooooooooooh I LIKE the sound of this! NWGal I LOVE the idea of using the husk for those uses! I have this dream of me on a desert island in the evening in a hammock between 2 palm trees, I watch the sunset sipping fresh juice from a pineapple shell or a coconut and I stay there all night under the clear stars and wake up to the sunrise and go swimming in the sea with the fish and coral...
Ahhhh I think I will try and find one of these once i'm all moved home..
I love my fruit as fresh and alive as possible too!

That sounds great! :) Count me in!!

So, do you cut the outside of the pineapple off first or what? I can't quite figure it out from the pictures.
09-20-2004, 12:57 PM
Kristi you cut of the top and then you use the slicer to cut straight down into the pineapple and it leave the outside in-tact.Its very simple and it come out like a long curly-Qish shape and then you slice it into bits or rings what ever you want. Hope that explains it for you :)...

Oh wow I can't wait to get one of these! I hope I can find one somewhere at the store nearby instead of ordering online though as I don't think I can order from the UK on amazon.com. I just cut a pineapple today with a regular knife and it made me thing does this pineapple cutter waste a lot of the pineapple when it removes the shell? I am curious to know how much of the pinapple gets wasted in the process and if it is more or less than by doing it with a knife...

Analeah, just so you know... There is Amazon.co.uk. You should be able to get most anything you need from that site since it's nearer to you. I'll check it out real quick for ya and let you know. Be right back!
09-20-2004, 02:32 PM
just looked over amazon (uk) and they have the slicer. (3.97). Hope this helps!
09-20-2004, 02:38 PM
I looked it up on amazon.co.uk as well and did find the pineapple slicer but when I added it to basket and tried to check out or whatever it says "only ship to UK" or something like that...Did you find a different link that will allow someone in another part of Europe order from the uK?
09-20-2004, 02:44 PM
Let me check it out again.
09-20-2004, 02:46 PM
I just went on and (mock) checked-out and it let me put in my address so I would think that it would be able to deliver to anywhere in the UK. Let me know what happens?
09-20-2004, 02:53 PM
Hmm, I just went to this link http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00005AS57/qid=1095710069/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i1_xgl/202-4303940-5459851

Okay just found the vacuvin pinepple slicer at the store here! Yay I didn't have to order it online. I only found the medium size one though. I tried it on a small pineapple first but it was obviously too big. I just tried it on a larger pineapple and the size was okay but I was very unimpressed. I think I may have gotten a defective one or I am using it wrong or something but the black clip thingy kept slipping out so I couldn't twist :confused: Not sure if I am doing something wrong or if it is the slicer itself....
09-28-2004, 07:22 PM
Oh my .. It sounds broken. It should not be coming apart like that! Ya its woulndt be possable to use it corectly with that going on. Can you return it?
Thats to bad :(...
09-29-2004, 12:45 AM
Yeah it's so strange, I think it must be defective. Hopefully I will be able to exchange it or return it. Do you think the medium size one is the best to get? I think that is all they had but I'm going to check again when I go to the store.
09-29-2004, 01:58 AM
It is the size i have and it works good but then again I always get medium sized pinapples.
