    What a great gadget, if you're doing a lot of mangoes or even one or
    two. No more flying mangoes on the floor. William Sonoma sells it
    for $12 and it really works.

    You put the thing over the mango, so that the oval on the gadget is in
    line with the pit and just press down. Then you crosscut score the
    inside of the halves, not cutting into the skin. Then you turn the
    halves inside out and you are done!

    There is not a lot better than mangoes, blueberries and bryer's
    lactose free vanilla ice cream!

    I got their 14 x 16 pizza stone and the mango depitter fir $6.00 when
    I returned the Cooks Illustrarted book on BBQ that I got for Hannukah.
    Great book but very basic.

    I only wish it would be worth my while. Mangoes usually sell for about $2
    around. They are not ripe, and I have not had much luck getting them to
    ripen properly. One the rare occasion that I get one that is nice and ripe
    they are wonderful.

    I have several knives round that will cut them in half. That's not enough
    of a problem to have to buy a special tool.

    One thing that is better would be Hagen Daz <sp?> Mango gelato. I had it
    once and really enjoyed it. I tried to get it in my regular grocery store
    and was told there was no such product. A few months later I found it in
    another store. I tried again at the regular place and the story changed to
    it not being something on the list of things they can get from their
    suppliers.
