The first try, I was sitting at the table, with an unpeeled Gala apple in front of me. It didn't work out too well. My brain then kicked in, and I realized that leverage was going to be necessary. So the next one, I stood over the unpeeled apple and shoved that slicer through. I flipped it over and snapped the lid closed to push the pieces through the blades. Boom. 16 beautifully cored slices of apple. Angels sang, I tell you.
Peeling each individual slice was a bit of a pain, so I went ahead and peeled the rest of the apples before using the slicer. The corer almost always got everything, without wasting a ton of apple flesh. For the few slices that still had a little bit of seed or core left on them, it was a simple matter to chop it off. The slices were uniform, thin enough to cook beautifully, and were done easily. Before I knew it, I had far, far more apple slices than I needed for the single apple pie I intended to make. So we had two deep dish, overflowing apple pies instead, and it was wonderful.
Tips for those who purchase this:
*Stand when you're using it; you get much better leverage.
*Set the apple on it's head to slice; it balances better that way.
*Peel the apple first (I'm getting a peeler for Christmas, you bet).
*Use the plastic cover to push the pieces back through the blades, and not your finger. Those blades are sharp!
*Have a paring knife on hand for the few bits of core that are missed and to occasionally clean out the little bits that get stuck between the blades.
I don't care if I have to buy one of these suckers every year; it's well worth the investment. For what it's worth, though, it seems sturdy and very well made.
Update: I've had this for 8 months now and still like it. I did discover that you can peel just around the top and bottom and it works just as well as if you peel the entire apple. This is good if you like unpeeled slices. I do this sometimes when I want to eat fresh apple slices. I'm not sure if I made it clear in my original review that you slice first with the plastic bottom open then snap it closed and push down to pop the apple out. Works like a charm every time.
Update: I've had this slicer for almost 2 years now, and somehow I recently managed to break the plastic ring that goes around the blades. I'm still using it, but it's much harder to push down, now that it's broken. So I guess that means that it's time to order a new one.
Tip* I am 5'7"...I make sure I place the apple & slicer blow my elbow height so l can lean into the press when pushing the blades through the apple. I do this to make sure I get through the apple in one hard press, instead of many little attempts to press down, make sense?
Love the 16 smaller slices that pop out when you press the metal plate up underneath the apple once you have cut the pieces. This makes POP them out onto your plate. Great Design!
But it takes a Wonder Woman's strength to push it down through the apple.
I use my rubber tenderizing mallet to get it started, then grab both handles & pound the apple on the cutting board.
The release gizmo is genius!
The slicer is ruggedly made, apparently. 😅
Like the skinny slices.
