PRODUCT REVIEW: Pampered Chef Apple Corer, Peeler, Slicer
"Pampered Chef Apple Corer, Peeler, Slicer" Overview: Huge fan, great gadget.
Alright, I really love this. I mean really, really love this! This was probably one of the first kitchen gadgets I ever bought. I didn't even have my own kitchen when I first bought this, but I used it. It has saved me so much time and has helped create amazing apple dishes for almost 10 years now.
Of course for the sake of fairness there are a few drawbacks to the gadget.
First, if the apple is huge, larger than a soft ball its a little tough to get onto the spike/holder. Second if the apple is at all a little past its ripeness, the blade will just swoosh through it, but at least you know it isn't good anymore. Lastly, it only slices in one thickness which is great for breads, muffins, apple sauce or butter, salads, and salsas but not pies. The slices are too thin for a pie but tarts are great!
That is really it. It is a great time saver if your an apple picker. It takes roughly 30 seconds to per apple once you get in the grove. I can have a bushel of apples done and in a pot for apple sauce in under 20 minutes! Now that is a great time saver!
