Best Mango Slicers of 2019 Review

You will probably agree with me when I say: it’s VERY hard to slice a mango and remove its pit with a normal knife. And it’s even harder to make it look nice afterward.

Did you know that a mango slicer saves up to 15% of the fruit that would otherwise be wasted? In this post, I’ll share with you the best mango slicers and some fun facts about the fruit!

A good mango slicer is a true must-have for people that enjoy this fruit and eat it very often. The classic method of preparing a mango is by peeling it and later slicing it with the use of a moderately sharp knife. The problem with this approach is that often up to 15% of the fruit is wasted because of inefficient cutting around the pit of the mango. Apparently, some wise businessman spotted this problem and developed a slicer that is specialized on splitting the mango in two, and efficiently removing the large pit. What seemed like a crazy invention around a decade ago has resulted as a source of inspiration for tens of other manufacturers that imitated and improved the concept.

Nowadays, mango slicers are available in practically any color, shape and material. However, when there are so many products flooding the market, it can be easy to buy the wrong one. But, after hours of exhaustive research, we composed this list of the best mango slicers on the market today.

How to choose the best mango slicer?

A good mango slicer that is worth your money (and time!) should fulfill at least 3 out of the following 5 criteria. If it doesn’t, even if it is being offered for a very attractive price, we recommend you to look for a better alternative:

  • Easy to wash off after usage
  • Should be simple to use
  • 100% dishwasher safe
  • Be able to remove the pit of the fruit
  • Have a solid non-slip grip

Out of the five above, the by far most relevant criteria for a mango peeler or cutter should be that it removes correctly the pit of the fruit. If a mango tool isn’t sharp or precise enough to properly remove the pit, then you shouldn’t pay a single buck for it. Because as mentioned above, a messy approach to slicing a mango will result in a waste of between 10 and 15 percent of the fruit.

Mango fun and nutritional facts

  • Never judge a mango by its color. Just because the peel of the fruit has a reddish color it doesn’t necessarily have to be ripe.
  •  It takes around 3 days for a mango to ripe at room temperature. You can accelerate the process by placing the fruit into a paper bag and exposing it to the sun for a couple hours.
  • Salt and chili are added to the mango in many south american countries to intensify its flavor.
  • Eating mango makes you live longer. Many studies have shown that people that enjoy eating mango are also usually concerned about having a healthy diet and therefore live, on average, longer than people who don’t.
  • Mangoes make amazing salsas. Ever tried to blend a mango and use it as a dip for nachos or fish sauce?

Halfway through…

  • There are hundreds of different mango varieties. However, in there are only around 6 that are commercially traded in the United states.
  • Very rich in vitamin C. One cup full of sliced mango provides you with enough vitamin C (along with other nutrients) for the whole day.
  • One mango a day keeps the oculist away. This tropical fruit is full of beta-carotene which is highly beneficial for maintaining a good vision.
  • Squeeze a mango to tell if it’s ripe. As mentioned before, you cannot tell the ripeness of a mango by its color. In order to check if the fruit is ready for consumption just gently squeeze it with two fingers. If it’s soft then you are ready to go! If not then leave it to expose it to the sun for a couple hours. It’s amazing how quickly this fruit can ripen under the idyllic conditions.
  • Newbie. Did you know that the mango was first introduced to the United States in the 1830s? That’s only 180 years ago! By the way, it was first cultivated in Florida due to its favorable climate. Thirty years later the first mango entered the state of California.
  • Mango appetite. Although India is the world’s largest producer, it only accounts for one hundredth of the international mango trade. A 99% of the cultivated fruit are consumed by Indians!
