This corer is sharp and does the job on firm apples as well as the softer ones. If you miss the center it is easy to try again from the other end and even shave a little off if you don't get it all. I found a twisting motion works best to work it through. I used to think the apple peeler corer slicer that you crank was great and it sliced out a peel 6' long, but this is simple, easy to use and clean and the price is certainly right. And those only work on firm apples. Besides I personally like the peel. Because the coring tube is very sharp, keeping a cutting sheet or something plastic or wood under it is essential when in use.

This is my latest, favorite kitchen tool!

With a little twisting on the way down, the corer slides right through the middle of the apple. With a hearty whack on the plunger, the core pops right out and into the trash/compost bin. I wouldn't recommend this product to the elederly or arthritic but an average, middle-aged woman should have no problem using this handy gadget (trust me, I am one).

Tips: If the core on a particular apple is larger than normal, just repostion the corer and go in for round two.
Twist the corer, ever so slightly while pushing down on the apple for a smooth removal.
When removing the apple core, place the plunger easily into the top of the corer and give it one good whack, don't try to push it out...smack it out!
The corer works great at removing the middle of cupcake as well, just fill in the new core with frosting!

I truly am enjoying my apple core ejector. It is great because I often want to remove the core only and stuff the center with with my favorite treat like peanut butter.

Since buying this corer I never cut an apple up without using it. It's a great tool - especially when I need to cut up several apples at once. We dehydrate apples every few weeks and this probably saves me an extra 10 to 15 minutes each time. It takes some strength to push and twist it through the apple. If you have arthritis or general weakness in your arms - this probably won't work for you.

Wish it was a little sharper on the end but other than that I just slap it through the core and then slap the core into compost.

This does exactly what it is suppose to do. The only "problem" with it, is sometimes its very hard to get the core out of the corer, but come on, this is a simple piece of equipment. Its a hole, you can't really improve it much, its just the way it is. So use a little muscle, and you will be fine.

Saves me time when I juice, so yeah, buy it.

Works as advertised, but it takes a fair bit of strength to push through an apple, and at times it's almost impossible to get the core out of the corer with the pusher, as its designed to work. I don't know why it's to hard to remove it, but I sometimes have to whack it on the countertop to get it out. I wish I had bought the Cuisipro Apple Corer, which my sister has. http://www.amazon.com/Cuisipro-747150-Apple-Corer/dp/B003AN7EW6 I read the reviews of it though and thought I was being very smart to get this one instead since it has no moving parts, which seemed to be the possible weak spot with the Cusipro. It would be easy to fix the other one if it did have a problem though, and this one is just going to be difficult forever.

This cut through the apple fine but the one I received does not have a sharp edge as other reviewers have noted. Once the core is inside the tube it is a pain to get out. One reviewer was just fine with "whacking" the plunger to get the core out and gave it five stars. Seriously, this is ridiculous! Yes, I had to put the plunger in the corer and whack it down on the cutting board to dislodge the core. I was under the impression all one had to do is put the plunger in and PUSH the core out...not have to hit it hard on the cutting board to dislodge it. If I didn't have to pay postage, I would return the silly thing! I can not imagine doing 10+ apples (to dehydrate) with this thing!

I've had one of these for years, and I think it's the easiest corer out there. I bought this one for my mom, who's elderly and has arthritis, and loves to bake pies. You do need a little strength to bang it through, but much less than the corer/slicer ones.

worthless - my second attempt at finding a decent apple corer - this defiantly wasn't it! you have to be herculean to get the core to push out with the plunger! and really needs the serrated edge the push into the apple - maybe this would work on mushy apples - but I prefer my apples fresh and crisp.
Definitely wouldn't recommend!
