All slicing, no dicing.

Going to Grandma's as a kid was always amazing. One certain time was the best though, the times I smelled those amazing smells. When she was baking pies.

Usually I just got to taste, but sometimes, I got to watch her make them. Even as a kid, I watched how long it took to get the apples around. Which, is the exact reason, I don't make Apple pies now.

I've been seeing these slice and core combos for years now, but this is my first time using one. Now this, was an experience.


But first, let's talk about the gadget! the middle, or work section, is nice and big, and seems to be really well made. You'd have to have a huge apple, to not be able to use this on it.

The handles are amazing. Most products don't care about those of us with Arthritis, pain, or even just our comfort. Chef Remi, gives us a nice silicone padding, which feels good on the hands.


It comes with an info paper zip tied to it, which was very annoying. I was able to rip the paper off, but had to burn off the zip ties. They need to look into a simple tag and string combo.


Now, in order to use this tool, pick an apple, wash it up, and sit it on the table. Simple right? The next steps are even easier. Simply center the tool on top of the apple (stem through hole), push down until it cuts all the way through the apple, and finally, push the pieces until they fall out the bottom.


If you are making a pie, eating them, or doing any other activity, where you need the apples peeled, do that before you slice and you will be good to go.


Pros:
Slices and cores in minutes.
Nice padded handles.
Easy to use.
Arthritis friendly.
Well made.
Nice look.


Cons:
Doesn't cut all the way through the apple.
Apples get stuck.
Zip tie tag.


The pro's outweigh the cons on this one. I am always saying this, but i am in love! I'm going to make an apple pie for Thanksgiving this year, a real homemade from scratch apple pie...it's been years! Please, check out the link below!

I love apple pie, but my favorite was the peanut butter roll. So much sugary goodness! What about you? What did your grandma or mom make, that you just love? Do you make it now?

I received this product in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are 100% my own.
