We’ve tried all sorts of gadgets for slicing, splitting, and coring fresh fruit, but generally we don’t consider them essential—a knife is really the only tool we need. Mangos, however, are different. Trying to remove the pit can feel like a guessing game, and separating the oddly shaped thing from the clutches of the fruit is a sticky, slippery, and sometimes precarious procedure. That’s why we were thrilled to discover Oxo’s ingenious mango splitter. This is one gadget we’ll take over a knife any day. Just set a mango on end and press down on the splitter. In one quick motion, the sharp blades slice the fruit down the middle, cleanly excising the pit from the two succulent halves of fruit.
