    It kind of gets stuck in the pineapple and you need muscles like steel to twist it round and boy do you end up in a sticky mess

    It looks to me like half the pineapple is left in there!! Pineapples are not straight so to take the pinapple out like that would leave a lot in there!
    I'd then find myself cutting the skin open and slicing the remainder out.

    Why do you waste half the pinapple?

    You just read my mind! I also agree that a sharp paring knife would save you much more pineapple. LOVE pineapples, I didn't know they were a SS food!

    I've got REALLY weak wrists, so struggle with cutting loads of things - butternut squash and swede being the worst! - but our pineapple ritual is as follows:-

    1. Hubby removes the top for me.
    2. I thoroughly scrub the whole thing.
    3. Hubby cuts the thinnest prickly layer off that he can - compost!
    4. He then cuts a thicker layer off all round to remove the 'prickle
    bases' ie all the brown bits, and puts on a plate.
    5. I sit and nibble all these bits, trying not to cut tongue or lips!
    6. Hubby cuts the rest into slices, and puts into fridge.
    7. When we eat the slices, we both nibble round the core!
    8. Voila! NO WASTE!!!

    Enjoy your pineapples folks - but NOT in public!!!
