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.

Color: Green/ clear Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
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.

Color: 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.

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.

Works awesome! The hinged cover that also pushes the slices all the way through the blades is an excellent innovation. I was a little worried that it would be awkward to use, but it's great!
As for the reviewers complaining that this is difficult to clean--one even saying that he had to resort to using a toothbrush to remove apple particles stuck in crevices--these people are clearly from another planet. Honestly folks, if cleaning this thing is problematic for you, you should probably not be around sharp things in the first place. There are no crevices. It easily rinses off under the faucet in ~1.445 seconds. Even if a few stubborn apple particles were to somehow remain stuck on the blades, they'll just dry up and fall off. Or, worst case, you might end up eating one with your next sliced apple, which will be totally harmless because it's just a tiny freaking particle of dried fruit. Some people actually pay to eat dried fruit. In larger quantities than microscopic particles, too. Really, you have much more important things to worry about, such as properly de-linting your jeans pockets, or pretty much anything else at all. So buy it, enjoy your sliced apples, don't try to use it to shred documents or cut firewood, and just rinse it off when you're done. (Sometimes a rogue seed will come out in one of your apple slices rather than all staying safely locked within the core, in which case you should deploy your backup seed-extrication plan and pick it out with your fingers. Flicking it at your spouse is optional.)
