I have had one of these Apple corers for about 10 years and found it wonderful sadly mine has now cracked a little, so the time has come to buy another one, thanks Lakeland.

Brillian.... especially using my tip”
Excellent product. So easy. My tip is to slice a very thin amount off the bottom of the apple first. Only a thin slice, barely more than the peel. This gives the apple a nice flat bottom so it is very stable to push down onto. It also means that all I do at the end is shake the gadget and the perfect apple slices tumble off it. They never hang onto the gadget. I just have to pull the core out by hand. I know some people seem to have trouble freeing the slices but this tip really works!

I eat apples a lot more often since I got this - I hate biting into them because I find it hurts my gums and I get bits of skin stuck between my teeth. This cuts the apple into wedges that are easy to eat. It's not totally foolproof: - if you have an apple with a wonky core, then expect to get pips in the segments - and it doesn't cut completely to the bottom of the apple, but I don't find that this matters because you can easily just pick the segments off the top then push the core through with your finger and discard it.

This is a great wee gadget. It doesn't slice all the way to the bottom of the apple as mentioned by the other reviewers, but this is not a bad thing. Simply push down on the apple from the top and it will slip back through the corer. Then the apple can be torn from the core very easily, or for a packed lunch, left on the core, wrapped in a bit of cling film and popped in the lunch box to be unwrapped later without having gone as brown as it would if cut and put in a box. My son wouldn't eat apples at lunchtime until I started doing this. I really wouldn't be without mine.

Frustratingly difficult to remove the apple from it.”
by Carole Booker
I used a similar product at a friends house and thought how quick and easy it was. The OXO Good Grips one, however, is very disappointing. It slices and cores apples easily but it doesn't cut right through them. It is then very difficult to remove the slices and core without slicing my fingers on the very sharp blades. I'm afraid I am back to using a knife instead.

A note from the team: Thankyou for your feedback on the apple corer and slicer, we'll be in touch.
Although this product is very good at coring and slicing apples (provided you can keep the apple steady), it doesn't quite meet at the bottom - meaning that once you have pushed down as far as you can go, you still need to "finish the job" with a knife to get the apple slices out of the corer. And, it's very very sharp - so be careful when handling it!!
