Do you love mangoes but despair at their indomitable resistance to efficient peeling and slicing Even if you have fantastic knife technique and aren’t one for kitchen gadgetry, you will get far more out of your mangoes for a tenth of the effort with this simple tool from OXO. The stainless steel blades split the fruit in half, leaving the pit nearly clean, and the nonslip rubber handles are placed high enough to prevent any surprise knuckle-slams on the cutting board. Every-one we know who has this tool claims to eat mangoes more often as a result, and that’s a good thing, because this tropical fruit is high in vitamin C and phytonutrients. Using this tool is also a fun way to get kids to help prepare mango snacks.
