Quickly slice apples and pears with this easy-to-use Wedge and Pop kitchen tool by Progressive International. The handy gadget not only slices an apple or pear into eight tidy wedges, but it also pops the fruit out in one fast motion.

In addition to helping release the slices, the wedger's cover also protects the blade during storage, keeping it sharp and ready to use.

Sliced apples (everything from Granny Smith to Red Delicious) and delicious pears (from Bartlett to Bosc) make a healthy choice when packing the kids' lunches or setting out an after-school snack. They also plate up well with cheese and crackers to serve to guests during a party or special event. Keep the task of slicing and coring apples and pears simple with the Wedge and Pop on hand.

Made of durable ABS, stainless steel, and polypropylene, the Wedge and Pop measures approximately 5-1/5 by 7-1/5 by 2 inches and can safely go in the dishwasher to ensure thorough cleaning between use.

It's easy to use, cuts very well, and is simple to clean.
S. Thompson
The blades are plenty sharp (as evidenced by a finger nick from one person who was using it incorrectly) and it's really simple to use.
Ephany

First of all, congratulations to the design team that finished the job on the venerable apple slicer. The plastic piece that you push after you flip over the slicer really does push the apple out of the slicer. Amazing it took so long for someone to figure this out.

That said, there are two design flaws that may haunt you after you get over that giddy feeling of total apple slicing control. First, the slicing blades are made of sheet metal that are folded in at the "core" of the slicer, creating numerous small openings for apple particles to lodge in ways that are very difficult to clean, except with a toothbrush. Second the little corners of the slicing blades are exposed around the outer perimeter of the metal slicing assembly. They are very sharp. If this utensil is grabbed the wrong way, perhaps out of a sink full of dirty dishes, the potential for a nasty cut is there and could easily happen in my opinion. Pictures of these design flaws will show up if you select to "view and share related images."

So, just after the return expiration window has passed I'm throwing it out. Bummer.

A good slicer should be a) sharp, b) easy and comfortable in the hands and c) cut through the fruit cleanly.

Typically, slicers can ace two of these - most are easy and comfortable in the hands, but the sharpest ones stay sharp by never quite going all the way through the fruit and the ones that do cut through completely dull quickly.

This slicer solves the problem rather ingeniously. You slider the sharp cutting blades straight through the fruit and then flip over the plastic lid to pop them out the rest of the way. It works on all manner of apples and pears. It's only "flaw" is that it can't magically make it easy to cut through crooked apples, but the person who figures out the solution to that problem probably hasn't been born yet.

Excellent, excellent, tool.

This product has one of those twist that make you say, "Well, that just seems obvious. I wonder why no one has done that before".

The built in cover (on a hinge, so it's never lost), keeps the slicer sharper longer. It also protects other items where you keep your slicer stored.

A clever twist on a common household item. Highly recommended.

Color Name: Green/ clear Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
At least three times a week I core and section apples, and have done so for a couple of years. The first tool I used for this task was a simple cylindrical apple corer that is centered over the stem and pushed down separating it from the apple, leaving the flesh to be sliced, diced, etc., as desired. It worked okay, but the core remained stuck in the cylinder, creating a somewhat hazardous situation. To remove it required a finger or a separate utensil to push it through. Pulling the corer out of the apple requires strength, and the action eventually causes the handle to come off. After trying several different brands, I moved on in search of a better design.

Next I tried something similar to this tool. The convenience of coring and slicing an apple in one movement is appealing, but I found a similar design flaw to the device noted above. The core gets stuck. Additionally, the blades sometimes don't cut all the way through the apple skin so effort may be necessary to free the wedges from the cutter. Again, depending upon the sharpness of the blades, this action may be dangerous.

Since this is a utensil I use frequently, I was anxious to test out this new version. The blades are sharper than my previous model which permits it to be easily pushed down through the apple. When done, snapping the plastic bottom on causes the apple core and wedges to pop up and out of the device, so, no need to put fingers in or around dangerous blades. This is a smart design and it works beautifully.

I am a female with reasonable, but not exceptional, hand strength and found the slicer required very little effort. One slice required the removal of a seed, but the core size for the utensil is no different than others I've encountered. There is simply no one perfect size.

Color Name: Green/ clear Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've obtained a lot of kitchen tools over the years, and this one is one of the better ones. I make a baked chicken and apple dish about twice a month in the fall and winter months, and this gadget totally cuts my time in half -- actually more. It's easy to use, cuts very well, and is simple to clean. Previously, I'd used a corer; this is much better than that. It slices evenly and precisely, and goes through an apple quickly without super-strength. The plastic on it serves double duty -- it keeps the sharp edges from cutting you or anything else, and when pressed against the metal, it gets that last part of the apple that would otherwise be difficult to cut.

I don't make apple pies, but this little gadget is inspiring me too!

Wonderful concept and pops fruit out fine, just happens I got a dull one and it is very hard to cut into the fruit. Three other people tried it without better luck, so it wasn't just my hand weakness.

Color Name: Green/ clear Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've had some apple slicers that I liked and others I hated. Some have rusted, others have too small a hole for the core leaving seeds and core pieces that have to be trimmed off.

This slicer is sturdy, easy on the hands and has really sharp blades for cutting. Once you position the slicer and go through the apple, you turn the lid over and push the whole thing down. This completes the cutting process and all the slices pop up ready to eat.

It has a good core hole but still leaves a little of the core in the slices. I'm just not sure what diameter it should be but I hate to waste part of the apple by having too large of a core hole.

A nice slicer and since it is about the same price as other quality slicers, a recommended kitchen gadget.
