My little “Bug” loves apples….well just about every fruit for that matter but he is quite fond of apples both red and green, but to be honest it can get a little dangerous cutting up the apple in slices for snack time while having to keep my eyes on both “Bug” and our new puppy since they are into everything, so I’ve recently been looking into purchasing and apple cutter or peeler to make it easier and quicker on me to get back with my full attention to “Bug” so when I was offered the opportunity to review the Apple/Pear Cutter from Rosle I couldn’t have said yes fast enough!

We were sent an Apple/Pear Cutter to review and it wasn’t long after it arrived that my little man was wanting an apple and peanut butter for snack time so I was very excited to use my new apple cutter and let me just say it worked wonderfully and I was back to spending snack time with “Bug” rather than spending the time slicing and peeling the apple!
Here is a little about the Apple/Pear Cutter (taken from website):
Fruit or vegetables are divided into eight equal parts and the core is cut out separately. The wide handles give a good grip and ensure optimum transmission of pressure. Ideal for apples and pears as well as potatoes.
Ok, so we know it works great on apples but I didn’t want to stop there we usually have a Sunday dinner of beans, taters and cornbread so I decided instead of spending 25-30 minuets peeling and slicing the potatoes for fried taters I had my husband peel them and then I used my Apple/Pear Cutter to slice them into eight parts and it worked great, so it’s now my tater cutter too LOL, and let me also note that it makes wonderful home cut fries as well!!!
But, I bet yall are wondering about the clean up right? I know I was but it’s really quite simple I just rinse and put it in the dishwasher on the top rack and let it go and it’s come out nice an clean every time!
I’m loving having the Apple/Pear Cutter around our house not only does it make quick work of our apple slice snacks and fired taters and fries it’s really simple to use all you have to do is place over the apple or whatever you are cutting, press down and there you go your done and it’s very comfortable on your hands and has a wonderful little “lid” to place over the blades when not in use….then add in super easy clean up…what more could you ask for?
