This huller is pretty easy to use. You just poke it through the bottom of the strawberry and push up. It cuts through the strawberry, and if you place it correctly, pushes the stem up. It's not difficult, but if you are slightly off, you don't get the whole stem in one push. I also found that this works really well with firm strawberries, but with riper, softer strawberries, it's harder to push through without damaging the strawberry you're holding.
The core of this huller is hollow, which I thought was good at first. It means that you are clearing out the center of the strawberry. The cutaway on the side is convenient, too for cleaning. But what I didn't like was that the red handle is hollow as well. I hulled a pound of strawberries, and about halfway through, the core was packed so tightly that I had to use a toothpick to get the strawberry pieces out of the red part. I'd been cleaning the center as I went, but I didn't realize how tightly packed the handle was getting. It wasn't like it made it that much harder to clean, but when I think about the amount of time it took versus just biting a strawberry off the stem, I decided this wasn't worth it.
While this strawberry huller does work as advertised, and it's kind of fun to use at first, in the end it's a uni-tasker that just isn't worth it
First of all, use a can opener to get the strawberry huller out of the package, the darn hard plastic! I washed and let the holler dry. Took out my strawberries, inserted the bottom of the huller into the base of the strawberry, pushed out the hull and any leaves, and that is it! Less fuss, less mess, and much more strawberry is left. I hulled a quart of strawberries in a very few minutes, cut them in half and then quarters.
Simple tool, that takes the mess out of preparing strawberries.

Overall, if I only ever had small berries I'd have no complaints. I have other Tovolo kitchen gadgets and it's a brand I love, this one just falls short.
This tool is not perfect. With a little effort and patience, it does work. It can produce four beautiful kiwi chunks and an empty skin with little to no waste. I found that it works better if you use it really slow. When I tried to use the tool quickly, it pulverized the kiwi. The tool also needs to be used on a kiwi that has been cut in half. So, you have to dirty a knife as well as the tool. For the tool to work, you place it in the center of your kiwi and slowly turn it a quarter of the way around. This makes the metal "cut" the kiwi into the chunks.
While it could use some improvements, it still makes it easier and a little less messy (this makes the juice squeeze out all over the place) than trying to peel the kiwi on your own. If you are a kiwi fanatic like me, it is worth it. If you only occasionally eat the fruit, I would probably skip it.
The corer works best with small to medium berries, but large berries sometimes need to be done twice to remove everything. Without question, it lost less fruit this way then when I simply cut the tops off the berries and use a knife to cut out the core.
I know the Alton Brown rule about gadgets that only have one purpose, but this huller is so small it easily slips into even a quite full kitchen drawer. I will store it with my canning tools which is where it will do the most good. It is comfortable in the hand even when used for an extended period of time. It does an excellent job with both firm and somewhat soft fruit. And, anything that saves preparation time whether making a pie or canning jam is a welcome addition to the kitchen.
