After dividing your apple, try tying a rubber band around the apple for transport. The slices' proximity to one another will keep the apple from turning brown.

Since we bought it we now buy twice as many apples as we used to. The kids now snack on fresh apple more often and junk food less often. This alone has made this one of the best return to investment ratio products I've ever bought!
(My kids are middle-high scholl age--I'd be a ltiile carefuil with younger kids using it--the blades are sharper than they look.)
I just orderd a second one to keep at my office for quick & healthy afternoon snacks!
Frankly, I feel no home should be without one of these!
It cuts through an apple very quickly and precisely, much faster than if you were to use a traditional knife.
This is the perfect tool for a person who is prepping home made apple pie or apples in quantity.
It cleans easily in the sink or dishwasher.
The divider seems sturdy, but only time will tell.
That said, there are some "BUTs":
* Large size makes cutting smaller apples difficult.
* Occasionally an apple will shift while cutting and the cuts will be off.
* Large size makes drawer storage cumbersome.
* Be careful of the very sharp blades, accidental cut can happen.
* Usually does not cut 100% of the way through and one has to wiggle the core out and pull off the peices at the bottom.
If you don't mind coring and dividing an apple by hand then I say stick with your favorite knife. But for those of you for whom it has always been a chore, those who want to do it quickly, or those with a lot of apple to chop, this is a great timesaving tool.
Next my own experience. I received mine from Amazon a week ago (no cracks in the plastic, the blades are sharp) and have been using it since then, just preparing a single apple at a time for my own pleasure. I really like how quickly and easily I can get an apple ready to eat! I wish I had gotten one of these years ago so I would have eaten more apples and fewer less healthful snacks. (Personal note: my teeth aren't very good for biting so if an apple isn't sliced I'm much less likely to want to eat it.)
I don't have a cutting board so I have been cutting right on my small ceramic serving plate. I have found it cuts smoothly and easily if I rock it a little as I push it down to keep in control and not smash the plate. (In this case it is probably a good thing the frame is plastic and not metal.)
I am grateful to the reviewer who suggested to slice off the bottom 1/8" of the apple before using the corer so that the skin doesn't hold it all together and make it hard to separate the slices.Read more ›

Lost the previous one in the divorce and really wanted another. Like what it does and the simplicity of it. Recommend but won't work with a really big apple.Published 1 month ago by Joseph Yonke II
Keep looking. The way the blades join the center circle, there are gaps just small enough for apple to get wedged in, but not large enough to get it back out. Read morePublished 2 months ago by CATTA
It cores, divides, dices and slices. You can cut a rock with this and cut through a tomato like a hot knife through butter. Read morePublished 2 months ago by hate obamacare
