Pineapple Slicer / Corer
After selecting the right size blade and attaching it to the handle, you cut off the top of the pineapple and put the blade on it squarely. Putting even pressure, twist the handle while you push down and go until you can feel the blade putting pressure on the bottom of the pineapple with your hands. Pull the handle straight out to release the pineapple slices. It takes some effort to break the suction. When you remove the tool you'll have one long curly slice of pineapple. You can either use the wedger that comes with the tool to slice the spiral into chunks, or you can just take a knife and cut down the handle if you want rings. If the pineapple is not ripe enough you will get thinner slices, if it's too ripe it will mush. Do all of this on a tray so you can capture any leaking juice, then pour any juice out from the shell, or fill the shell with coconut rum and orange pineapple juice and let it set for a couple hours then enjoy the drink!
