Independence Day Series American Flag Print Family Matching Sets Review
Rested: Our daughter is starting her own cupcake company so these are perfect for getting her started. This came quickly and is great for coring to fill the cupcakes.
Rose: I used it a few times for the apples when I was juicing and while it got the job done, I noticed the apples were oxidizing immediately after I cored it as oppose to using a regular knife to cut the apples. I don't know if anyone else was experiencing that so I opted for knifing instead. This little gadget has been sitting in the drawer.
Sage Shopper: I like eating apple wedges with skin on, and so does my husband. However he doesnt like to fiddle with paring knives and I sometimes skip this healthy snack, just from laziness. It sometimes seems a lot of work performing the usual quartering and then cutting out little pieces of core from the quarter, ending with core bits and seeds and juice dripped around. I decided to try a corer, so I initially purchased another brand of corer, last month , but after one use I repackaged it and took it back - the cut diameter was way too small for the size of apples i like (large Red Delicious). Most of the core was still inside the apple! Then I ordered this OXO one from Amazon, due to the good reviews.I can say yes it really works very well. Actually so well that my husband will now fix himself his own apple snacks with it.This OXO corer is easy to handle, easy to clean, and it takes out a decent sized core, with almost no missed core left behind. It removes a circle of twice the area of the old useless one i returned. The actual inner diameter of the OXO corer is 3/4 inch or 19 mm. The thickness of the actual steel is 1 mm. The length of the steel is just around 4 inches long and the rubber handle is just about 4 inches long. The rubber handle is oval in cross section and there is decent sized hole at the end of the handle for hanging it up . There are nice little rubber "fins" build in to the rubber handle to make pressing down easy on the thumb and fingertips.For the person who was concerned about the browning on the cut surface: yes this happens , it hardly makes the apple piece unpalatable, but to explain what is happening - this is just a bit of pulverized apple flesh that has been deposited on the cut surface, made of juice and broken cells of the apple which browns so fast in air, you see it within seconds. The color is natural oxidation of the fruit juice/pulp, it's not from the corer instrument. When you use the corer, the "cut" surface is a saw cut, so it is microscopically a bit more ragged than when using a knife. If the corer were to have a sharp tapered edge I imagine it would be a lot more expensive to manufacture, and if it were made of very thin steel the tool would be flimsy . Anyway if it's important to have the core be white, just rinse/drop the cored apple in to a anti-browning solution right away until you are ready to do whatever else you are doing to segment up the fruit. But I think unless entering your apple recipe in the county fair, most people would agree they would not bother with this blanching the core procedure.I gave a rating of only 4 stars becuase I can't say how long it will be servicable for, however it does appear to be well made. I would only say that for the price, if it lasts me one year of coring just one apple per day, it will have definitely paid for itself, and should then be rated 5 stars.
S. Jefferson "sammyjefferson": This OXO corer is one of the few kitchen gadgets that I use often. It makes fast work of coring an apple. I like the large handle. It is easy to clean. Sometimes it takes a little prying to get the removed core out of the cylinder, but its a small inconvenience compared to coring an apple the usual way. A good product, at a good price. Highly recommended.
S. Killian "Working From Home": I chose this because of the 'good grip' on the product. I have to admit, if u have a firm apple, u have to shove that corer thru with some serious force. Other than the area turning immediately brown that has been cored, I'm happy. I'd use this mostly to make apple pies. So some sugar and baking will hide the browning effect it causes. Still like it.
