Here's The Scoop

They make it look so easy in cartoons—the shipwrecked character cracks a coconut over a rock and enjoys the fruits of his minimal labor. Enjoy a similar experience, no animation required, with the innovative Fruitensil. Featuring a curved stainless steel blade designed to scoop out the fruit's meat, this unique tool scoops out the sweet "meat" in coconuts, watermelons, and more. Made in China.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

      Comments about FRUITENSIL:

      After breaking and bending several knives and forks trying to get the meat out of a coconut, I was excited when I saw this Fruitensil. I used it on three coconuts I had sitting on my counter in anticipation of the Fruitensil's arrival. While I wouldn't claim the meat came out like butter, it was definitely much easier to remove the fruit, and in bigger chunks, than my previous attempts with other tools. I am anxious to try it out on some melons, and hope to have that opportunity sooner than later!

      The Fruitensil makes getting to the "meat" of a coconut simple. It also allows you to easily scoop it out. Could this contraption make your next pina colada night a breeze?

      Unless I lived on a island do not think I buy to many coconuts to need this.

      We don't have coconuts in the Midwest. This is not a staple in my home

      I've cracked a few coconuts in my day and anything that can help scoop out the "meat" is great in my pantry.

      Made in China, so probably not so durable. Also unnecessary--learn to use a knife! Just another rarely used gadget in the junk drawer.

      Elizabeth

      I could totally use this one.

      while I love the idea, like so many others I am disappointed that it is made in China. I can get a made in china tool at any box store, I shop uncommongoods.com to avoid such things. find a source in the USA and I would buy it!

      I can see other uses for this, such as soft melons and such but sad to see more items out of China. The only thing that would keep me from buying it, it's made in China...

      I do think it's practical, but I'm afraid it would "fit" anything I'd like to use it on!?! Avacado, Melons, etc. It might though, sure wish you'd have a price with it, might determine more if I'd buy it or not!

      First of all it's made in China when it could easily be made in the US. It actually was developed in the US and then the manufacturing was sent to China. You also need a hammer to crack the coconut in half and a bowl to catch the water. I saw the video of how to use this tool on the internet It's not the greatest tool. A knife with a flexible blade works just as well. My husband often opens coconuts on the beach with nothing but a rock and a swiss army knife.

      its pretty pointless unless you eat an abundance of coconuts

      malu

      would be good also for scraping a pineapple's shell after using that tool to remove and slice its pulp .. that tool is handy but often leaves a lot in te shell (frugal me).

      I don't care for coconuts, but great for watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew any fruite or veggie that is round with a heavy rind. Not crazy about made in china, but it's a useful kitchen tool.

      Karen

      My husband and son love fresh coconut, and this tool may make getting it out of the shell fast and easy, too!

      Seems like one of those oddly specific tools that will rarely get use. Made in China is a major turnoff.
