    I dont get why things keep being moved - why is it off topic? If it helps people to eat more fruit is that not a help for people doing sw? Just a question - not meaning to rock the boat

    Its moved because its not directly SW related, it is helpful, Ive got one of these and theyre great but its not to do with SW diet, so therefore its 'off topic' hence the move :)

    I've got one too! Controversially, I don't love it...lol.

    I like it, but I find that there's a lot of waste with it. As it's not adjustable to the size of pineapple, if you get one of the extra large ones (as are on offer in the supermarkets at the moment!) then there's loads of juicy, tasty flesh wasted...and if there's one thing I can't stand, it's food going to waste!

    Call me picky...lol!

    (Edited to add: I don't have the Lakeland one that's got the adaptors for different sized pineapples, which would have alleviated my moan about the one-size-not-fitting-all issue!!)

    My parents had one of these:
    Cooking Time Cookshop, Stellar Saucepans, Judge Saucepans, Bugatti Cookware, Cookware Supplier, Quality Cookware, UK - Neat Ideas Supreme Pineapple Peeler Slicer / Corer (Powered by CubeCart)

    It's adjustable, so fits any pineapple! They bought it in Australia about 20 years ago, but I've really struggled to find it in the UK. Thank the internet though...I have just ordered one! Yay!

    Me and my bf were just talking about this last night! The hassle of chopping pineapple means we rarely buy one and often when we do it sits in the kitchen going off cos none of us want to attempt to cut it! Going to buy one of these things! Thanks guys :D

    I agree with allie1904 - my 'pineapple preparer' is called Hubby! (he's also good at swede and celariac, 'though I do most of the rest!).

    I'm sure that we get less waste preparing it by hand, and, like Hellie, I can't BEAR waste!!!

    I have something similar which, I love as pineapple is my favourite fruit and would very often be left to rot because I hated cutting it. Either that or I'd pay a lot more for a tub of ready prepared stuff!

    You stick it in the top, adjusting the diameter of the ring size, then twizzle it round. Then you slice the slice! LOL...sorry that's not brilliantly explained but it's very neat and minimal waste :)

    I love fresh Pineapple but dont buy it enough to justify spendin so much on somethin to cut it, I think just cuttin it up is a workout in itself :8855:

    Oooh that's fun I want one! Saves buying ready prepared pineapple which is convenient but expensive :)

    Although I do have the "tingly" problem with fresh pineapple :( sometimes its just a tingle sometimes its proper sore and my tongue goes all strange!
