I know that Maya probably has covered this in the past, but I'm tired of seeing her nearly cut off entire parts of her hands (HINT HINT) to get some fresh pineapple each night. The Vacu Vin Pineapple Slicer peels, cores, and slices an entire pineapple in seconds and is made from durable plastic with a medium-sized blade. Perhaps if I get this for her in time for Christmas, each night she can eat pineapple with ease.
