Before getting into the how-to, invest in a pineapple corer that will be easy to use. It is one of the best gadgets you will have in your kitchen – especially if you’re a big fan of pineapple.

Step-by-Step: Using a Pineapple Corer
Cut Off the Top of the Pineapple
To use the corer, cut off the top of the pineapple.
Place Over the Center of the Pineapple.
Press down to help the corer get a grip, then twist the handle of the corer and allow it to spiral through the fruit.
Pull the Whole Corer Out.
Finally, once you get near the bottom, simply pull the whole pineapple corer out.

You can unwind the fruit from the corer if you want to keep its shape and cut the side of the pineapple to get those pretty pineapple rings.
