Advantages: Great gadget and very handy
Disadvantages: Nothing at all
OXO Good Grips Mango Splitter is an ingenious device which allows you to neatly, carefully and expertly split a mango and be able to remove the hard nut in the middle without any effort at all. It cost just under six pounds and we bought it online about a year ago. It saves a lot of money if you enjoy mango but do not like to prpeare a fresh one yourself and therefore are tempted to buy the pre-sliced packets, which can cost a fortune.
Our little lad loves fresh mango and we all eat a lot of it as a family but it can be a real pain preparing the fruit and my other half usually leaves it to me.
This gadget is like using an apple slicer and it is so easy to use and requires hardly any effort. al you do is put your mango onto this gadget and place the splitter at the top of the mango, and gently push down the fruit. If the mago is not very ripe then you will have to put in more effort and push down a bit harder. The blades are sharp so be careful. What I personally love about this great gadget is that there is absoulutely no wastage of mango flesh like there is if you try to do it yourself. I have to say, personally speaking, there is very very little flesh left on the stone afterwards, especially if the fruit is at the correct ripeness.
It is easy to keep clean - just rinse under hot water and you will find that no debris stays on the blades as it just rinses off as it is quite a clean fruit to use. Or, if you want to, then you can pop it into the dishwasher with your other stuff and it will come out looking great.
It is possibly a bit expensive but if you work out how much you could spend on pre-sliced mangoes then it is worth it.
