Editor's Notes

April 21, 2020:

For this update, we removed the Westmark Jumbo, as it isn’t designed specifically for apples, and also has trouble getting through the melons it’s meant for.

To replace it, we brought in the CukAid Ultra-Sharp, an all-metal model. Our existing metal option, the New Star Heavy Duty, is a fine product, but some may find it too lightweight and would prefer a product that can cut more than 8 slices. The heavy-duty CukAid Ultra-Sharp is nearly double in weight and large enough to cut apples into 12 slices. Either of these options would be ideal for anyone who doesn’t want to deal with less durable plastic or rubber materials.

Due to complaints of it removing too much of the apple core, as well as issues with sharpness, we removed the Amco Dial-A-Slice, replacing it with the Mueller SpeedSlice. Unlike the minimalist style of other models, this slicer incorporates a stability pole that keeps the tool centered and on track as it cuts. This is a great option for those who might be intimidated by other models, or aren't able to provide the control needed to use them safely. The extra components do make it more of a hassle to clean, so if you don't have a dishwasher or sink sprayer, you may want to consider a simpler model.

If you're using your apple slicer to make apple pie, it's a good idea to roast them in the oven first. This releases the excess moisture that would otherwise go into the pie, and can result in a soggy, bland taste. By roasting them first, you concentrate their sweetness and tartness, making for a sturdy, flavorful pie. They will shrink during roasting though, so you'll need to add a few extra.

If you're interested in jazzing up your pie's presentation, consider one of these stylish pie pans.
