A Big Disappointment”
Having read great reviews I was very disappointed with this item. Maybe I'm using it wrong, but I just seem to end up with a load of mushy pineapple, a glass of juice and a big mess. It seems to squash the pineapple rather than cut it and leave me with a puddle of juice. Off to the charity shop I think.

i don't like it”
by Helen Wickens
Bought this quite a while ago after reading fab reviews. I never use it now. Have gone back to a knife. I usually love Lakeland gadgets but not this one. Find it very hard to turn the handle and hate losing all that sweet juice over the work top. Others love it but doesn't work for me.

A breeze to peel and core a pineapple in one go.”
This Pineapple slicer is useful when making juices. It is so simple to use. The flesh comes out cut into a spiral which is easily separated into pieces or left whole to go into the funnel of the juicer. Any residue flesh left on the outer shell, I had a a particularly fat pineapple, can easily be removed with a small sharp knife once the shell is cut in half lengthwise. I stood the pineapple on a plate which I had placed on a damp cloth, to stop the plate slipping, this way I was able to catch any escaping juice. A very good product

A fun gadget but.....”
by R Hudson
There were no instructions, just some small pictures on the box. Had to check on youtube to see how to work it. My first attempt was disastrous, juice everywhere and I was left with a pulpy mess. However, when I tried again, I managed to get some decent rings. It did take two of us though, as my hands aren't big enough to hold the pineapple still,l and I had to stand on tiptoe to work the "screw". I shall use it again though, easier than cutting with a knife.

Hate preparing pineapples but this gadget makes it so easy, very well made and takes a minute or so to now peel and core a pineapple. Great would highly recommend

I have just bought this gadget, and rushed home with a pineapple to try it. It is amazing. The pineapple was very ripe, but it did not mush up at all. Done in seconds. Minimal pressure is required to cut through the fruit. No nasty spiky bits of skin. No worktop wash with juice. Love it.

Not up to the job”
by Mrs Carol Segar
I thought this gsdget would make pineapple preparation easier. However so far only one successful result. The handle comes apart during use so makes it impossible to turn the slicer in a corkscrew plus the plastic is not sharp enough especially the wedger which just squashes the pineapple to a mush rather than cutting into cubes. I've decided to go back to using a sharp knife!! Very disappointed as this was not cheap. Feedback please!!

I have wanted a pineapple corer since my daughter sang its praises some time ago. Sadly my first attempt was a complete disaster leaving juice and mess everywhere. also it was really hard work getting it to turn. I've watched the video, I'll have another go but I may be sending it back

I replaced my old slicer with this one as I thought the wedger was a brilliant idea as I cut my pineapple into chunks. But I have found that the wedger just does not work, I end up with a mush. I will use the slicer - but I could have saved my money as my old one was ok and I gave it away as I did not need 2.

Great piece of equipment”
by Mr Ray Montague
If you enjoy fresh pineapple but can't be bothered with all the hassle of prepping it then this is the best and only gadget you will ever need, what an easy way to prep a pineapple.

I have wanted one of these for a while as I waste pineapple when preparing it with a knife. To say I was amazed by it is an understatement, easy to use, easy to clean, no hard skin left, cut into small wedges and the inside of the pineapple was all removed with no skin left on the flesh at all. If you buy no other gadget for your kitchen, buy this, I would never be without this now, utterly fantastic and absolutely the most useful thing I own, I will now buy pineapple more because I can prepare it properly. Thank you Lakeland.

not for me”
you need two people and very strong wrists to use this,one to hold the pineapple.tried it on three pineapples,not much luck just a pile of mush.gave up as our wrists had become painful.this is not a gadget for people without upper body strength ie us oldies

pineapple slicer and wedger”
I found this really easy to use, barely had to press at at all, just turn the handle. Easy peasy!

I bought one of these as I love pineapples but they are rather messy to prepare! It worked very well, although you need to have quite strong wrists to use it.

We all giggled!”
by liz rowe
Used this for the first time in front of my 6 and 9 year old boys and we all just burst out laughing - in the past they have seen me fiddling about peeling, coring, chopping and picking little "eyes" out of pineapples - this is so quick, easy, visual and minimum waste with the three size options provided. It really is brilliant!

No mess with this gadget. Makes cutting pineapples so much easier.
Published 08 05 2013
Every home should have one. I was a little bit dubious after reading some of the reviews but decided to go ahead after a work colleague purchased one and didnt have any problems. Works a treat and simple to use. Saves on fruit wastage and plasters trying to angle a knife in the right direction without slicing your fingers off! I would definitely recommend to others.
