4.0 out of 5 stars
Comparison, 19 Sep 2008
I bought this as well as the plastic version with three sizes that can be found here: Vacuvin Pineapple Easy Slicer set of 3 (small, medium & large)
I first used the plastic slicer on a giant pineapple which made relatively short work of the pineapple but produced thinner slices than I was expecting and took a lot of pressure to make head way. I then used this version on a normal pineapple (sorry, I forgot the type) and this worked as I expected it should before I used the pastic one i.e. it was a lot easier and produced thicker slices than the plastic version.
The fact that it's metal seemed to provide it with less friction than the plastic version.
Overall I like this product and would recommend anybody to pay the little extra to get this version rather than the plastic version. The reason I have given four stars rather than five is that I cannot see a reason why this cannot come in a variety of sizes like the plastic one.
Little tip: When you've reached the bottom of the pineapple, pull up and continue turning the slicer to finish.
