When I first saw the Vacu Vin Easy Slicer Pine apple Corer, it wasn’t love at first sight. But, I took the gadget home to give it a fair chance, and that’s when it wowed me. In one quick action, it cored and sliced a pineapple, leaving the shell intact for use as a big piña colada cup.

The Easy Slicer works like a corkscrew. Center the serrated edge atop the fruit (cut the crown off first), and press and twist the slicer into the pineapple until you reach the bottom. Then slowly pull the handle to remove a cylinder of perfectly sliced pineapple. The Easy Slicer only let me down once—when I used it on a super-soft, ripe pineapple, it shredded the fruit. Other than that, this little gadget definitely works. It sells for $8.99 at Kitchenkapers.com.
