    I have one of these and LOVE it! Makes slicing pineapple not such of a chore! Highly recommend 😀

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SO glad you have been loving yours, Alyssa! We love to eat Pineapple in the summertime! I really need to snag one of these!

  2. Dana Edwards

    I agree with Alyssa! It definitely works!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! Thanks so much for the feedback, Dana!

  3. anika

    I have the one that hip2save posted from and its amazing I wouldn’t use anything else going forward for cutting pineapples.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the great review, Anika! Awesome to hear how well it has worked!

  4. Casey

    Best invention ever.

  5. andyrussell

    but don’t throw away the core! The core contains an enzyme called bromelain, which has anti-inflammatory and digestive properties and pinapple is the only natural occurring source

    • GAmommyof4

      Ok, so what do you do with the vitamin rich core?

    • mo

      So how do you suggest we use the core?

      • Bunny

        The core is great in smoothies. Freeze any extras in a ziplock bag.

        • Michelle

          We throw ours into smoothies too!

      • je

        I have one and don’t care for it. It wastes so much of the fruit. Besides, I like to eat the core too.

      • JD

        Freeze and use as cooler in punches. Use in meat marinades as a tenderizer. Put in food blender with your favorite fruit smoothies ingredients to cover the gritty texture. Place meat tenderizer on insect bite and cover with frozen slice of core—brimelain in both.

    I wondered y didn’t I own these earlier! Totally worth it even for double the price. Unlike avocado slicer or garlic one this is a hit at my home

  7. CJJ

    Got one at Aldis years ago and love it. Still going strong. They always offer their pineapples for great prices and they’re delicious but cutting them, while not impossible, is a chore. Not with this, it cores and peels and slices in spirals!

    My husband “invented” a recipe. You begin by using this gadget and going most of the way to down (about 85% of the way down). He then takes the pineapple out, but leaves the base on the pineapple in tact (so it’s a big hollowed out cup or tall bowl). He then makes a sweet and sour rice dish with red peppers and chunked pineapples and fills the “bowl” with it. Sitting in the pineapple skins lets the juices from the pineapple infuse the rice mixture and not only does it look festive but tastes out of this world!!!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh wow! That does sound yummy! Thanks for sharing your hubby’s invention with us!

  8. Tammy

    I have one and love it!

  9. Jessica

    I bought one the other day and man if you don’t have it get it me and my kid ate the whole pineapple once cut and our pineapples are 99 cents right now so I got my second pineapple yesterday I’m trying to figure out what’s good and what’s not from there because I haven’t liked any of there chips and I bought the fit active ice cream and it was real bad it’s worth going for some things but it’s hard to stop multiple places with a toddler

  10. Judy

    I bought one recently and I’m going to return it. Not a fan. Didn’t work well and didn’t save time in my opinion.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Darn! Thanks for the honest comment, Judy!

  11. Amber

    I love it. Use it all the time

  12. mel

    I got one of these last summer and it just sits in the drawer. My kids prefer when I cut the pineapple into sticks or chunks instead. I didn’t know about the core, we just usually gnaw around the hard part, so I’ll start saving it for smoothies.

  13. Ben

    Got one from Aldi. Awesomely priced tool. Just dont use it on too big of a pineapple.

  14. Pattie

    My mom is from Panama and makes a drink, Chicha de Arroz con Piña, from the peelings and core.
    You place the peelings and core in a pan. Add enough water to cover it. Add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of rice. Add cinnamon sticks. Boil this for 30-40 minutes. Let it cool in the pan. Squeeze the peels to release all of the juice and remove from the pan. Place the contents of the pan into a blender. Once it is liquefied, transfer to a container to cool in the refrigerator. You can add sugar to taste as well as a touch of vanilla.

    • Mirela

      Thanks for the recipe! I’ll try it!

    • Ask

      Thank you for posting this recipe! We love to try new things.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      That sounds yummy! Thanks for sharing!

  15. Bargain Shopper

    This is a great gadget to have. Although I think you’re better off not cutting off the bottom. I cut the top off and spin the cutter into the pineapple. When close to the bottom I give a pull and the pineapple comes out loaded on the cutter. I can then scrape the sides for crushed pineapple ice cubes and get the juice that comes out from the slices.
    Also worth noting I think is pineapple freezes well. When in season I’ll slice up several and seal in food saver bags to use later. I divide by portions that’ll suit my needs. For example 3 slices for a smoothie, 4 slices for pineapple chicken, 6 slices for a baked ham and so on.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for the helpful tips!

  16. Evaa

    I bought the same kind in Menards for $1.99(After Rebate)

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Great score!

  17. Ger

    I LOVE this thing! Bought it last time you posted & it’s literally the best thing ever!!! So much quicker, easier, & less messy!!!

  18. lk

    I had one and found it very difficult to use. I prefer a knife. Just donated mine to Salvation Army.

  19. JA

    Going tomorrow to see if my store has these! I’ve wanted one of these for awhile!

  20. Jen

    I bought mine from Aldi a few years ago for the heck of it after I had seen more expensive ones at other stores. I was skeptical and wasn’t sure if it would work or if I’d ever use it, but for the price I gave it a try. I don’t buy fresh pineapple often, but for when I do, it’s a great gadget to have.
