Mango slicer. Enough said.

For every fruit, vegetable, grain, spice and beverage in existence, there’s a tool made specifically to solve whatever problems arise relating to that item. We can’t have everything (where would we put it?), but if you’re going to purchase just one of these, we implore you to make it this one: the Mango Splitter. It only takes one failed attempt at slicing a mango to realize that mangoes are impossible to slice. And luckily for you, the trusty folks at New York-based Oxo designed a press that removes the seeds and extracts the inside of the mango with ease, leaving little meat behind. And, as with many of Oxo’s products, the splitter is easy to grip and great at preventing slippage.
