Kiwi Fruit Cutter
Peeling and cutting a kiwi fruit may be tricky as the skin is very thin, but with this Kiwi Fruit Cutter from Shimomura Kogyo it becomes fun and easy.
This little handy contraption is a 2-in-1 peeler and cutter, and it’s very simple to use, even for kids.
The kiwi fruit cutter comes in 2 parts; the stainless steel metallic loop cutter and the small plastic knife. Cutting the kiwi fruit is as simple as one, two, three! easily separating the skin from the fruit in seconds.
How to use
1. Use the small plastic knife to cut the kiwi fruit in half. (Easier to cut in half by turning the kiwi fruit while cutting).
2. Insert the kiwi fruit cutter into the center of the kiwi fruit, stop just as the cutter reaches the skin. (Remove the plastic knife when using the cutter).
3. Twist the kiwi fruit cutter round to cut and separate the fruit from the skin. (Turn the cutter slowly to avoid cutting into the kiwi fruit skin).
The kiwi fruit cutter might not cut well if the kiwi fruit is too small, unripe and hard or too ripe and soft.

We have started to feed our son Kiwi fruits as he loves fruits, so this device comes in very handy. Maybe we had some good kiwi fruits to cut (gold kiwi fruit in the picture gallery above), it was just as simple as the picture. Cut, insert and twist. Out comes the fruit pieces, nicely separated from the skin.
Apart from the small plastic knife, the cutter itself is just a metal loop which resembles a whisk, and is not sharp so kids can safely use it.
Washing is simple, just rinse the cutter under water and leave to dry.
I’m sure there are other ways to peel and cut a kiwi fruit, but this has to be the most fun way to do it.
