    I was skeptical about this product because of mixed reviews, but the price was so low I ordered 3 of them, one for me, two for gifts. It works as described, is very easy to use, cleans up quickly, and all the juice stays in the bottom of the pineapple "bowl" unless you twist too far down and cut through the bottom like I did the first time I used it. I was really pleasantly surprised at what a handy kitchen tool this is. I love pineapple but hated the mess of cutting them and could never get all the brown eyes out. This slicer makes it soooo simple! The slices come out with no core, all the brown stuff gone, and in one continuous spiral that you can cut into whatever size you want. It's great!

    I ordered two of these for gifts for friends. Both were delighted with the slide-out drawer. I had never seen that before, nor had they. They made a nice gift and the price was very reasonable. Oiled bamboo makes a good surface for chopping fruits and vegetables but I would use one of the heavy duty plastic flexible cutting sheets on top of the bamboo for cutting meat, fish etc.

    This product is manufactured in China for a european company. It is a good idea, but has its flaws. The bamboo top is cheap and grainy; and one big minus is that it cannot be stored on its side because the bamboo is not secured. I bought three hoping to give as gifts, but after trying out one of them I will be returning the other two.

    I thought maybe this would be gimmicky and overkill, but I really like it. We compost in Seattle, so it's great to chop and peel and toss all the ends in the drawer instead of trying to aim them all in the little compost bucket. Also it cleans us easily. Only downside is, because it's hollow, chopping on this thing is a little loud.

    Maybe it's just me, but I couldn't get this thing to do anything. I am sending it back.

    So much easier than cutting it up with a knife. I had seen a lot of these kind of gadgets online but never bought one until now. I don't know about the others, but this works great, great, great!

    This is a smart design and a great cutting board. My friends were jealous and are now on the lookout for it on STP!

    The first time out I wasn't sure exactly how, so you might have to sacrifice a piece of fruit to find out. It is geared towards a medium sized fruit--make sure it's ripe. If you're tackling an expensive large Hawaiian pineapple, this will core and slice the inner part of the fruit--you may still have to surgically remove the outter flesh from the rind (if there's enough to make it worth your while). For the normal sized pineapples coming up from Mexico all winter long that you can pick up at the dollar store this is a really cool gadget. Just cut off the top and screw this thing into it--when you've reached the bottom you're done--cored and sliced fresh pineapple in a few minutes with minimal mess. It's going to be a popular gift to my friends and coworkers---maybe 3 extra isn't enough...

    Well...maybe this was designed to save time , but after I used it on a regular size pineapple without problem as far as cutting, it left so much behind that I had to spend twice as much time scooping the rest of the fruit from inside the skin.
    As a result it was twice the mess, twice the time.
    And it doesn't cut nice chunks that can be achieved with a knife . After all that inside is removed it still needs to be cut .
    The " spiral" is thin and torn - so again you have to find parts that can be used as chunks /i didn't find any/
    I purchase two of them with the intention of giving one to a friend - but I don't think she would be happy with it.
    I know I'm disappointed.

    Absolutely macerated the pineapple. I would return it but it would not pay me to that the cost was so small.
