Why you need a Pineapple Corer

So, I’ve been meaning to write about this for a few months now, but with all the festivities of Halloween, now Thanksgiving, and upcoming Christmas, I’ve been preoccupied with more seasonal blog posts. But then I realized, duh, holidays and parties are when this gadget is going to shine.

Ready? It’s a pineapple corer. Yep. If you are like me and love fresh pineapple then consider this gadget your life saver. I have no idea how many times I have almost lost fingers slicing a pineapple, so when I was on vacation and found this in a fancy kitchen store, I knew I had to have it. The only downside is that you technically don’t get as much pineapple–but what you do get is beautiful and delicious–no core. You get perfectly sliced pineapple rings, so you can keep them as rings or cut them into chunks. I was so impressed with how easy it was. And it is much less expensive than buying pre-cut pineapple–especially for a party. Also, it leaves the shell of the pineapple in tact, so you could definitely decorate with it. Especially if you were having a luau themed party!

If you want to buy this exact pineapple corer, you can do it here. They don’t pay me to say these things, but I didn’t want to write a post telling you how awesome this thing is without telling you where you could get it. :)

Okay, these sharp teeth just rip through that pineapple with ease.

Cut off the top first, then just twist the handle down…

And lift it out. Super easy. The black portion of the handle pops off and you can just slide the pineapple right off.

Now you have the whole pineapple in tact to decorate with it.

Pineapple upside down cake anyone? Yeah, that would be good.
