Mango Splitter

Removing the flesh from a mango in tidy pieces can challenge even a seasoned pro's knife skills.

Published July 1, 2006.

The OXO Good Grips Mango Splitter remains a favorite gadget in the test kitchen and is our go-to tool for pitting mangos. To see if our recommendation still holds true years after we last published this review, we recently used a freshly purchased copy to pit and slice 20 mangos. It was faster and cleaner than using a knife to hack around the long, skinny pit, and the sturdy, grippy handles made it dead simple to use. It still receives our recommendation.

What You Need To Know

When we came across this mango splitter, we gave it a whirl. Similar to an apple corer—it's pressed down onto the fruit like a two-handed (ultra-sharp) cookie cutter—this gadget has a central hole shaped to match the narrow contours of a mango pit. At first, we had a terrible time balancing the mango for the initial cut, but once we trimmed the bottom flat, the splitter plunged through the fruit easily and cleanly. Try as we might, we couldn't round up a mango too small or large, and the mango splitter never left extra fruit on the pit by overestimating the pit's size. This is one of those rare kitchen gadgets that works.
