But after about 3 months of regular use the inner spring in the corer that kept the metal parts together got really weak, and the corer's regular position became PERMANENTLY SLIGHTLY OPEN. All the fun of using it disappeared immediately. In addition yesterday (after 3.5 months of use) one of the rivets popped out... so now I'm coring apples again with my old good OXO gadget that I bought a few years ago.
Kind of disappointing experience, I'd not recommend you to buy Cuisipro Apple Corer if you are going to use it often.
I kept using this corer from time to time when I needed to core an apple and my other corer happened to be in the dishwasher. So here is my update: the inner spring got broken completely and fell out - ALL RUSTY. It's NOT made of stainless steel for sure (which is very weird for a spring). And rivet fell out again and got lost.
Looks like this thing falls apart just after 4 months of use. An example of good idea that failed b/c of lousy implementation.
Here are the two main issues;
(1) When you actually use it and rinse it off, the internal springs VERY rapidly rust
(2) The two little rivets around which the corer "pivots" very rapidly loosen up and fall out, rendering the product unusable unless you can find them and jam them back into place. But even if you can, they inevitably fall out again.
So, I first bought this in December of 2011. By February of 2012, I was having these problems. I thought maybe I just got a dud, and because I liked the product, I sent it back to Cuisinart. They replaced it. Same thing happened again with the replacement.
Long story short, yeah -- it's pretty cheap. But I'd rather not have to buy it every single year!
It works perfectly. The serrated edge (at the tip) allows you to easily puncture the apple, and a quick twist allows you to pull the entire core out. The corer opens, letting the core drop out--no digging it out with a pen or other instrument.
Also, there's a 25 year warranty offered by Cuisipro--takes 30 seconds to fill out a form online and you are set in case of breakage or other problems.
The price is a little high for just an apple core, however, it is well crafted, not flimsy metal. You don't have to worry about breaking/bending this on a hard Granny Smith. Well worth the price, in my opinion.
I like that it has the spring loaded piece to help you remove the core from the tool.
Now that I have used this a bit more, I found a flaw in it. The spring loaded section that opens to release the apple core: it very quickly got out of alignment. It is only slightly off, and you can push it over to correct before using, but it is a bit annoying.
Still works fast and much better than a knife.
Super sharp and goes right through the apple. (hint: sometimes rotating the corer just a hair helps it keep going effortlessly). Opening the corer, the apple core is easily removed from the unit. And clean-up is a snap.
Very ergonomic handle, feels very comfortable. Couldn't be more please with this product.

Works good for coring the apple. Note that it has fairly small diameter so it's not always easiest to get perfectly centered. Read morePublished 21 days ago by MangoAve
