Top Tips For Cutting Pineapple

  • Make sure you use a large, sharp knife. A sharp knife will cut much more easily through the tough skin and flesh, which means it’s less likely to slip and cut your hand. With a knife with a dull blade, you are more likely to use the point to cut and use more pressure, both of which makes for easy slippage (and cutting things you don’t want to!) A sharp knife also means it takes a shorter amount of time to cut through the pineapple.
