Mangos are sweet, juicy and delicious, but often a chore to prepare. Not anymore, with the OXO mango splitter, recently featured on National Public Radio and the New York Times Magazine.
One simple press removes the seed and cuts the fruit in half. The mango splitter slices cleanly through the fruit and leaves almost nothing behind on the seed. Soft grips cushion while you press, and the stainless steel blades are sharp and sturdy. 6¾" long.

You must have one of these! I don't know how I lived without it. Slicing mangoes used to be a royal pain but this does it in about 5 seconds. 2 large, perfect halves right at your fingertips, ready to enjoy
This is the most ingenius idea I have seen in kitchen tools. I saw it for the first time in Sur La Table with my sister. She and her husband eat mangos frequently so I told her she should get one and try it. She did and they loved it; so much that they went back and bought another one to take to their beach house in Florida. Weren't sure if they could take it on the plane, but didn't have any problems. They raved about it so much that I decided to go buy myself one and now I eat mangos much more often because of how easy this little gadget is to use. Absolutely great product
I love mangos, but seeding the slippery little beasts with a knife is time-consuming and sometimes results in knife-nicks.
I used this product yesterday to seed a mango for a fruit salad. Unfortunately, I needed the salad; and the mango had not yet had time to ripen fully. As it turned out, this was a great test. I was able to remove the seed quite easily. Very little fruit was left on it, and both halves of the mango were dry and easy to hold while I removed the fruit from the peal.
