Pineapple slicer

One of my favorite kitchen widgets is my pineapple slicer. It's very easy to use. You chop the top off of the pineapple, and then the slicer is simply pressed into the pineapple and turned. It corkscrews its way down into the pineapple (although it's easier than an actual corkscrew) and slices as it goes along. When you near the bottom of the pineapple, simply pull, and it removes the sliced pineapple as it slides out of the body of the fruit. Then detatch the handle and slide the spiral-cut pineapple off of the slicer. One quick chop with a knife and you have cut pineapple rings ready to be eaten.

But the magic isn't over: you've also got a hollowed out pineapple (with a core in the middle, easily removed with a knife). I fill it with freshly made fruit cocktail, put the top back on, stick in a few toothpicks to hold it together, and bring it to parties. It's always a hit.
