    Sharing this with all my buddies and welcoming any feed-back/additions!

    I plan to include one of these with each of the 18 wedgers I sold at my open house! (and any future sales as well!)

    Enjoy!

    I received these tips from my director...

    # Make sure you talk about rocking it back and forth.
    # Do NOT go straight down, way too hard that way, due to the fibrous nature of the pineapple.
    # Then when you hit the cutting board, pick everything up, and put it into the protective cover. (make sure you line up the tabs with the handles) and push the rest of the way.
    # The indentations on the cover will let the wedger go all the way through the pineapple, and effectively 'push' the pineapple up and out.


    I know when I used the wedger for the first time it didn't go all the way through the bottom of the PA so I pulled the pieces up & out of the wedger...then I got this email from my director with the additional tips...HTH :)

    At your open house did you demo the wedger? I'm having one this weekend and plan to make pineapple salsa ahead of time but was debating having an extra pineapple or two to show how it works. But I don't like pineapple so I don't want to have a ton on hand to waste?? THanks.

    Chrisy, yes, thank you for the post. I have 3 shows this weekend and all hosts have asked me to bring it. They are all buying a pineapple so this hand-out will be great for them. Everyone seems so intrigued with it.

    Thanks for the great handout! I plan on doing this demo just like our "Salad Chopper Salsa". It will be called "Salad Chopper Pineapple Salsa" though! This will be a great hands on recipe for shows.

    Thanks for the flyer! I'm going to put it in my guest folders--I think it will peak their interest and they'll have the answer to some of their questions right in front of them. And can take another recipe home with them :) Thanks, again!

    The flyer is great! I have an open house on Sunday. I bought two pineapples to demo (figure I can cut each in half and do 4 demos). I already know of a few people who want the wedger. I will give a flyer to everyone who buys one.

    Okay---Did a Friday the 13th open house at my MIL's this afternoon, evening, and didn't get a chance to get back on here. I've updated it with some of the earlier suggestions, and FORCED myself to put it into Word (Mac fan!). Enjoy again!

    I get a message saying the document is corrupt and can't be repaired (Christy, you gotta stay away from them gangsters!).

    The original version is beautiful, though, and I'll be happy to print that out for my show tomorrow morning.

    Nice format Leigh...

    But - I personally cannot read the font very easily? You might consider a different one for your customers.

    It might have been because it was a docx file. If it's saved as a word 97 file, I wonder if it would be able to be opened by everyone better.

  36. Thanks for the great info. I'm going to be doing a show and show casing the new 2011 wedgers and figured why not break out the pineapple one as well. Love the flyer, thanks for sharing.

    I've used the veggie wedger instead of the apple wedger I couldn't find and it did a great job.
