"I was skeptical at first at thinking if anything that came out of Dragons Den was ever going to be useful, but I'm rather surprised by this piece of kit.
You get 3 attachments which are used depending on the size of the pineapple. It's not always clear, when you've got a pineapple, which one would be best suited, but you just go by trial and error and I tend to find a medium size suits most pineapples in a shop.
It starts much like an apple corer. You twist the bottom into the pineapple so that it doesn't slide off, and then like a corkscrew you twist the handle until you think you're far enough down the pineapple. Again, it's not easy to tell, so trial and error really. It takes a fair bit of strength/stamina to keep it all steady, but nothing major. However you do leak a fair amount of juice especially if you accidentally go too far and pierce the bottom, so have a cloth handy!
Once it's far enough, you pull it out (again requiring some strength), and the pineapple is attached in a giant ring-a-round which you can easily take off and chop into slices for pizzas, fruit salads, or anything. And best of all, if you're a cocktail beginner like me you can experiment with using the pineapple shell as a glass for a Sex On The Beach cocktail. :D
All in all I'm very impressed with this. Build quality is fairly good, it worked first time and impresses friends when they ask "what on earth is that thing?" The usual quick service from Drinkstuff...... in fact I think I accidental got given Next Day delivery added for free as it arrived the next day!"
