Oxo Good Grips Mango Splitter
Advantages: Reasonable price, sturdy, strong, works well, simple to use.
This is a 'good grips' mango splitter. It is basically a small device that is used to de-stone a mango with ease.
How to use
This really is very simple. Take your mango (not over ripe), place it stem side down, line up the splitter so it is sitting on the top of the mango. The oval shaped blade in the middle of the plastic circle (with black handles) should be in the middle of the mango. Then you just simply press down and this will literally slide through the mango. It's very simple and will you may need a little bit of force initially once it slides through the mango it is incredibly easy. Once this has slide down to the bottom of the mango you will have three parts. There will be two almost half moon shaped mango pieces and then there will be the seed left with, hopefully, minimal flesh around it.
Where can I buy this & for how much?
This can be purchased from Amazon.co.uk for £6.35 (August 2011) with free super saver delivery. This appears to be available from John Lewis & Lakeland stores for £6.95 if you prefer picking it up in store.
This is a fantastic little gadget! Before I purchased this I was spending a few pounds every week on a little tub of sliced, cubed mango. Now I am able to purchase them when they are on special offer, ripen at home and enjoy them whenever I want to with very minimal effort.
The price for this was reasonable, it is not the cheapest kitchen gadget but I thoroughly know and trust the OXO Good Grips name as I have been using their products for a couple of years now and so far I have never found a bad one that does not live up to their claims!
This mango splitter does cause a little bit of mess when it is used and I still have to peel the fruit away from the skin but it takes all the hard work out of the worst part of enjoying a home prepared mango. This cuts down on the time it takes to prepare a mango and the chance that I am going to slip with a knife and cut myself.
This is reassuringly simple to use compared to slicing my mango myself and it is dishwasher safe also so can just be thrown in the dishwasher after use. The black silicone style handles on this make it very simple to hold and I don't have to worry about it slipping when I am using it.
Summary: Fantastic mango splitter making life easier.
