Vacuvin Pineapple Corer, Slicer and Wedger

Product number: 26689

Preparing fresh pineapples can be a prickly business, leading to many of us reaching for the tinned variety. But what if enjoying fresh pineapple could be as easy and convenient as opening a can? Thanks to this rather nifty Pineapple Slicer and Wedger, it can be! Peeling, coring, slicing and wedging a pineapple in seconds, this clever kitchen gadget works like a corkscrew to prepare rings, slices or chunks.

How it works

The toothed centre acts as a pineapple corer cutting out the fibrous centre, and the outer serrated and inner angled plastic blades act as a pineapple cutter, slicing through the flesh as you turn the handle, creating a single spiral right down to the base of your pineapple that’s all juicy fruit with no chewy core or tough skin. Simply cut the spiky hairy bit off the top of your pineapple with a knife, pop the corer on top of your pineapple and twist the handle. Pull on the handle to remove the fruit, then push down on the wedger widget to cut into salad-ready chunks.

A taste of the tropics

There are so many sweet and savoury ways to enjoy the tangy tropical taste of pineapple, from classic puds to chutney and salsa. You’ll find lots of pineapple recipe inspiration on our blog, and don’t forget the shell: it makes a fun, fruity way to serve exotic desserts and cocktails. Piña colada, anyone?

"Its OK"

star star star star_border star_border

I purchased this pineapple corer to replace one that, after many years of excellent service finally broke. I used the new one and found the corer part worked OK but the wedger just made mush. In fact I didn't cut up the complete pineapple with the wedger, it was removed and the rest cut with a sharp knife as I had done with the original corer. Using a fresh pineapple, I tried again. Again mush was made. I will continue to use the corer, the wedger is likely to be discarded. The is a great disappointment as I had great trust in Lakeland's judgment of the products on sale.

"Worked well"

star star star star star_border

I had one of these previously and this worked well but this ratchet system didn't work as well as my previous one. Found it easier to turn the pineapple than the handle. It did give uneven slices but think probably it's my arthritic hands not keeping an even pressure. Overall a good result and like the divider to cut the rings.

"Easy to use, makes quick work of a pineapple!"

I bought this as sort-of a joke gift, for someone who has a pineapple dish they enjoy making. The pineapple prep was always the longest and messiest part, but this gadget makes light work of it! It has to live on top of the cupboard though, since it won't fit in the drawers.

"Brilliant - an ingenious design"

star star star star star

I've just been given this as a present. Kudos to whoever came up with this design. It is brilliant - removes the skin and the core, as well as slicing horizontally all in one go. If you want to cut the slices into segments, it will do that as well! It did leave some pieces looking mushy round the edges, but I can live with that for the simplicity and effectiveness of the "core" task.

"Useless"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

I bought this quite some time ago so I cannot rely on Lakeland’s excellent customer service. I used it once soon after I bought it and whilst not enamoured I kept it. Big mistake, second time of using the clips that secure the handle to the corer won’t hols making it unusable. Total waste of space. I only gave it one star for the one use I got out of it.

support_agent A note from the team

We’re very sorry to hear it's broken and will email shortly to help. All our products come with a 3 year guarantee, but as it's not a Lakeland branded item a proof of purchase is needed.
