Zyliss Twist and Scoop Grapefruit Tool

Product number: 73052

It can be a bit of a faff trying to peel and prepare your grapefruit for breakfast or a fruit salad without making a mess of it, and there’s nothing worse than getting a squirt of stinging juice in your eye as you attempt to separate the fruit from its rind. Zyliss’ Twist & Scoop is here to save the day.

Core, Cut, Scoop

First, cut your grapefruit in half and use the built-in corer to make it easier to release the segments, then get to work with the curved stainless steel blade to cut through the pith and cleanly segment your grapefruit and scoop out the pieces without an unfortunate ocular incident.

Stainless Steel Blade

The curved, double-sided stainless steel blade makes short work of cleanly cutting your grapefruit into whole segments ready for scooping out, and comes with a cover for safe storage.

Built-in Corer

The built-in corer in the comfortable handle makes for easy release of your grapefruit segments. Just push it in, twist and lift out the core.

Can be used on other citrus fruits too, and is dishwasher safe.

5-year manufacturer’s guarantee.

"Grapefruit juice floods"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

According to the video one turns the half-grapefruit face down and cores it. Unfortunately the core is not as straight as one would expect. Result: juice floods the plate and work-surface too. The scoop can't cope with different sizes of segments and more flooding follows. After several grapefruit tries I have returned to using grapefruit spoons.

support_agent A note from the team

The corer must be twisted as soon as it comes into contact the grapefruit, and then continue to twist as you push down to remove the core. It sounds like you may be pushing the corer straight down into the grapefruit (which squishes the grapefruit against the plate resulting in juicy mess) and then twisting. We find it doesn’t matter so much that the core isn’t straight, it removes all of the centre of the grapefruit on everyone we have tested. If the scoop is larger than some single segments on smaller grapefruits, it will easily remove two at a time. There will be some juices squeezed out in the process of removing the segments but the key to minimal mess is to ensure the scoop is pushed down vertically between the rind and the segment and then scoop underneath the segment pushing towards the centre to remove it. We hope you find these tips helpful.
