Top Customer Reviews
Many slicer have blades that are angled up and therefore they do not cut all the way through the fruit. I like this slicer as the blades are flat to the bottom and the attachment pushes the slices through so that very little gets caught in the blades. It does take some effort to get through firmer apples for 16 slices but I still prefer this over the 8 slice models. Except for the blades it is all plastic and I hope it hold up over time.
My 2 complaints about this (and all) apple slicers are:
1. The core diameter is too small so there can still be seeds and core pieces on the sliced apples.
2. The whole slicer should be about a 1/2" larger in diameter. Some of my favorite apples are fairly large and will not fit through this slicer. All the manufacturers seem to have about 3-3/4" to 3-5/8" diameter for the slicers which can be a challenge for some apple varieties.
Tip: For large and/or more fibrous apples, it helps to cut them in half first (at the "equator" line), carefully line the apple in the center of the cutter (leave room on the sides so your apple does not get stuck), get really good leverage (maybe have the apple on a cutting board at the level at your hips or even on the floor), and then go to town. Rock the cutter back and forth a little as you apply pressure and, when you're nearly through the apple, flip the tray under the apple and give that a push against the apple. I find this is the easiest eay to cut through large and/or tough apples. Besides, cutting in half gives you bite-size slices, and perfectly fills a sandwitch-size zip lock bag. Hope this helps!
The Good: 16 slices that are perfect for apple sauce, eating, dipping apples, pies, etc. Lid which pushes the core and slices out of the cutter, no more wrestling with a stupid core that's jammed into the cutter (That drove me crazy with the old cutter). The handles feel more heavy duty than my old cutter.
The Bad: I can't think of anything. This is a vast improvement over my old cutter!
