You might’ve seen this tool before; it was featured on National Public Radio and in the New York Times Magazine. Mangos are sweet, juicy and delicious, but they used to be a chore to prepare—not any more.
One simple press removes the seed and cuts the fruit in half. The splitter’s sharp and sturdy serrated blades slice cleanly through the fruit and leave almost nothing behind on the seed. The ergonomic soft grips cushion your hand while you press.
My kids talked me into buying a six-pack of mangos from BJs. (Naturally) they refused to eat them so I found a delicious juice recipe (2 mangoes, 4 oranges, 8 carrots, serves 2) to use them up. Problem was, pitting the mangos was a huge pain, very messy, and left a tragic amount of juice on my cutting board. I have a small kitchen with very little storage so I never buy gadgets, but the juice is so good that I took a chance on this one. It is worth every inch it takes up in the drawer! Now I buy and juice a six-pack of super-healthy mangos every week
Just like the previous reviewer, I wasn't sure if the mango splitter would really work. But I figure what have I got to lose, since I could return it if I wasn't happy with it. Well, three months later, I have used it at least at least 25 times and I love it! Cutting mangoes before was so messy. I don't know what I would do without it now
No more fear of buying mangoes. This tool makes it easy. Works best on regular sized mangoes. The bigger mangoes are a little more difficult to line up but its still better than using a knife. Love it! Bought a bunch for gifts.
