Bananas are one of the most popular fruits in the world. They're easy to carry, come with their own convenient natural packaging, and are ready to eat right out of said packaging. However, they can be a little messy, especially if they're being eaten in any way other than simply peeled and chewed. The 3-in-1 Banana Split Tool from Amco Houseworks is a cheap and cheerful addition to the arsenal of any finicky fruit fan.

The 3-in-1 Banana Split Tool is a simple idea that claims to be effective in removing the mess and fuss associated with eating a banana. It's made from bright yellow plastic and shaped like a banana. Which is great unless you're unlucky enough to come across a straight one.

It features a serrated edge at one end designed to help you peel back the skin of the banana from the stem. At the opposite end is a wire edge designed to help split the banana in two. Along the length of the Banana Split Tool are spines designed to help you slice the fruit into up to 20 even slices.

Use a knife!

'Mess and fuss' eating a banana, we're kidding here, right? Just stick a straw through the skin and suck it's guts out!

@ Ct "Use a knife!" Hey, if that's so simple then why are there so many slicing tools like this?

I can see the infomercial for this now: The screen fades to a dimmed, fuzzy picture of a person struggling against all odds to peel a banana who could be shown how to do it by a person with late stage Lou Gehrig's disease. Wipe to a bright room with a loving, enthusiastic housewife with 4 potassium deficient kids (2 her own and 2 neighbor kids), all wanting banana snacks, as she dutifully and skillfully processes through 3 bunches of bananas delivering in nearly the time it would have taken her to slice said bananas but without the paid smile. Hurry, if you call in the next 2 minutes, we will throw 6 more of these "solution-looking-for-a-problem" miracle devices for free because they will all break the second the come within sight of a dishwasher! No really, you still have to peel the things and that is easy and what if you get a banana that doesn't fit the arc shape of this device? Then you are just screwed.

This is why I kept my Bass-O-Matic..... Stem, peel, all of it at one time. Whirrrrrr! All of the fiber, none of the hassle.

Here's a tip look around us and see how the rest of the primates eat bananas. They hold the stem and peel the easy to open end which is the bottom. Try it. If you are not completely delighted with it you can go blow ur money on that Banana Bobbit.

"However, they can be a little messy, especially if they're being eaten in any way other than simply peeled and chewed." Exactly, it is so simple. What a waste of plastic.
