Right about now, you need a crowbar to get me away from my grill. Even in 100 degrees, you’ll still find me out there. The end result is just so worth it.
This entire month I’m celebrating grilled food. And OXO is doing it with me! Thanks to them, I had a chance to try out some of their newest products, perfect for the summer season. And every single one of them was awesome. OF COURSE. OXO never disappoints.
First up is the Ratcheting Pineapple Slicer. I cored and made flawless rings in less than 2 minutes. No need to even peel the pineapple. Seriously incredible.
Want a demonstration? I thought so! So we made a video for you. View and watch pineapple slicing awesomeness ;-)

Grilled Cinnamon and Sugar Pineapple Rings
Makes 8-10 rings
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 6 minutes
• 1 fresh pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into rings (fast and easy with the OXO pineapple slicer!)
• 1/4 cup cinnamon
• 1/4 cup sugar
• vanilla ice cream (optional) – I used Dreyer’s Slow Churned Light
• toasted coconut (optional)
Preheat an outdoor grill (or stove-stop grill) for medium-high heat.
In a flat dish, combine the cinnamon and sugar. Dredge both sides of each pineapple ring in the sugar mixture.
When your grill is hot, oil the grates or coat with cooking spray. Grill pineapple for about 3 minutes per side, or until heated through and tender, but not mushy.
Transfer 1 or 2 pineapple rings to dessert bowls and top with a scoop of ice cream and sprinkle with toasted coconut. Serve immediately.
