The joy of gadgetry

A delicious, freshly cut mango is one of life's great pleasures. But, if you're like me and have the knife skills of an idiot, cutting a mango and getting enough fruit to justify the work is a very frustrating experience.

Worry no more. Just purchased a nifty mango slicer that works rather well.

There is your mango. There is your slicer.

Stand up mango stem side up.

Place slicer over mango.

Push down.

It's all separated. Do the tic tac toe slices on the fruit until just before the skin and slice off the bits. It greatly helps to have a fully ripe mango so the skin is much softer.

And there you have it. Not sure how long it will take for the blades to dull, but mangoes!
