To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Fabulous! I use this every day. I'm on the Slimming World diet and eat a lot of fruit. This makes eating apples more of a treat than a chore. I also bought one for my granddaughter who has only just started eating fruit. This cuts apples into lovey thin, easily munched slices. I prefer this one to the cheaper 8 piece slicer normally available. It cost a little more but I think it was worth the extra cost. It is very sturdy and the blades are very sharp - exactly as I would expect.
Bought Feb 2018, it started off nice and sharp but gradually became blunter and more difficult to cut apples - and today the plastic holder snapped on both sides while trying to segment a small ripe apple. This has been used perhaps 50 times, it has not been abused, so sadly is not fit for purpose. Shame because it was great at first.
I specifically wanted a thin slicer, and this one does the job, but it's awkward to use - you have to cut the apple most of the way through and then finish it off by flipping up the (non-detachable) bottom and pushing the rest of the way through. I get what they were going for - past apple corers have been tough to get down that final few millimeters and you end up snapping the apple off and trying to pull bits out of the sharp wedge areas - but it just makes things awkward. I'd rather just do it with a cutting board. I've never found a corer that wasn't a bit awkward to cut with, and I haven't had a specifically harder time than usual with small apples on this one - I eat gala apples and they cut okay.
