If you're simply throwing kiwifruit on cereal, the tried and true method of scooping out the flesh with a spoon does the trick, but when it comes to preparing them for a fruit salad or pavlova topping, cutting off the skin can be time consuming.

As this video shows, kiwifruit perfection can be achieved in three easy steps.
