Pineapple Perfection

Fruit has always been known as nature’s candy, and for good reason. It’s sweet, juicy and delicious. And we all know the best part is the loads of vitamins that, unfortunately, are not included in the Ferrero Rocher chocolates and Lindor Truffles that filled so many stockings on Christmas morning.

But when 2012 rolls around, and all the New Year resolutions are back in action, you’ll be ready to fill up on the healthy stuff thanks to the amazingly simple Pineapple Slicer from Crate&Barrel. Whole pineapples are decorative and delicious, but many opt for buying the pre-sliced chunks or canned rings to avoid the chopping process. When using a standard knife it may seem like the edible results are few and far between the prickly skin and the solid core. But thanks to this basic pineapple slicer you can have your pineapple and eat it too, all within seconds!

The plastic Pineapple Slicer is highly reviewed and recommended by many consumers who compared it to more expensive, complicated versions. It removes the juicy flesh with a simple twist of the handle. Dishwasher safe, this slicer only requires a small amount of effort to operate, so you won’t need to work out your wrist muscles pre-pineapple enjoyment. Priced at only $7.95, the Crate&Barrel Pineapple Slicer wont break your bank or your back.

Pineapple is the sweetest treat, whether it be for breakfast paired with berries and bananas or for dessert atop vanilla ice cream and sprinkled with coconut shavings. And for a new way to enjoy this tropical fruit try grilling it for a island-style snack.

And if you’re looking for a creative way to serve up some tasty treats at your New Year’s Eve party this gadget can help! Once you remove the pineapple flesh you can use the leftover shell as a decorative bowl for your fruit salad, or fill it with too-good-to-be-true pina coladas. And the cut-up pineapple pieces make a perfect garnish for your champagne glasses!
