Pineapple Cutting Hack

Cut Pineapple Like a Magician With This Unexpected Hack

Calling all pineapple-lovers: you're finally about to master the art of cutting the tricky fruit. Learning how to cut a pineapple can be intimidating and lead many people to buy the prepackaged (less juicy, overpriced) pinapple spears, but this video of a street vendor demonstrating the best way to cut a pineapple is about to majorly help you out.

Instead of focusing on the traditional method of getting rid of the skin first, which can easily leave you with pricked fingers, this guy starts by cutting from the inside by running a knife around the flesh to separate it from the skin. From there, he removes the whole core at once, and then carefully slices the pineapple into chunks before squeezing them directly into a bag — it sounds confusing, but once you watch, you'll totally get it. It's clear that his supersharp knife (which looks like a flexible fish fileting knife) is the key factor in successfully prepping the pineapple. As long as you've got a good knife and know how to work with it, you'll be able to mimick this method and get perfect, fresh-cut pineapple, minus the juicy mess, every time.
