Why I like it: I don't know if you've ever tried to de-seed a mango before, but honestly, it can get a bit tough. This OXO mango splitter makes that much easier. As you probably know, I am a huge fan of mango, and include it in a lot of great salads like my spinach mango salad with prawns. If you are curious, I have a tutorial on how to slice a mango here.
- Removes mango seed and slices fruit in half with one simple press

Details: There's nothing as luscious as a ripe mango. Growing in popularity, mangoes are now available in many stores year-round and can be eaten fresh, cubed into salads, or sliced and baked on top of chicken breasts. Helping prepare the fruit for eating is this ingenious mango splitter from OXO. The splitter is a circular white plastic device with sharp stainless-steel blades in the center and OXO's signature black comfort handles on two sides. Holding both handles, the user pushes the blades down through the mango from the top, separating the seed from two halves of mango. The flesh can then be cubed or sliced off the skin on those two halves. After the prep work, the mango splitter slips right into the dishwasher for hassle-free cleaning. --Ann Bieri
