Earlier this summer I happened to be catching up on some blog reading on the bus ride home and came across a post on Off the Broiler about a mango splitting kitchen device made by OXO. I'm a big fan of OXO products because they're so well designed. And I have struggled to cut up my fair share of mangoes with their amorphous hard centers. So the next time my wife and I were in a housewares store we picked one up and sure enough it works as advertised. If you eat a lot of mangoes at home, whether straight-up or in salads, I highly recommend this little gadget. See photos below from OXO's website.
