The gadget in question is a pineapple slicer. Easy, peasy slices while leaving the core in one piece. Which then can be used to make yourself one of those exotic type cocktails as you marvel at how much work you saved yourself.
Start with a ripe pineapple.
This is the gadget. It is designed to be pushed into the pineapple and twisted, much like a corkscrew in a wine bottle.
But first you have the cut the top off of the pineapple! This is an important step.
Next line up the gizmo on top of the pineapple and firmly push the little teeth into the meat of the pineapple.
Learn from me. Put the pineapple in the sink while twisting down the gizmo. You are going to generate a lot of juice and a lot of mess.
There is no way to know if you are at the true bottom of the pineapple or not. Unless, of course, you drill right through it. Which you don't want to do because then you will have lost your receptacle for that exotic drink!
When you think you are there, stop screwing around and lift it out. Supposedly pulling all these uniformly cut slices with it. Kind of like a spiral cut ham.
I personally do not like the heart of the pineapple and this gizmo solves that problem nicely. It comes out all in one piece. Kind of like a plug you see geologists taking out of the ice on Discovery.
I must admit, even though I was pleased with my exotic drink receptacle, I was not pleased with the quality and amount of pineapple slices.
Although I appreciate the gift, I doubt that I will ever use it again. I guess I'm old fashioned. I like skinning the pineapple and slicing my own. I find that much more gratifying.
By the way, this is the post that inspired the quiz. The song from Annette Funicello, Pineapple Princess, kept running through my mind as I was using this gizmo. If you don't know who Annette Funicello is, ask your Dad. I'm sure he had a crush on her just like I did.
