OXO Steel Apple Divider
You know the old saying: “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Well, everyone is telling us to eat more fruits and vegetables, and the apple, and its cousin the pear, are loaded with nutritional and disease-fighting benefits at a modest calorie intake. And they taste great! Very often, we’ll share an apple or pear for dessert and feel both virtuous and well-satisfied.
So once you’ve established that there are very good reasons to eat apples and pears (and in this case, studies show that raw is better than cooked), then the next question is: how do you do that easily, conveniently and with style. For us, then answer is an apple cutter--one of those round things with blades radiating out from a center hole, so that, when it works properly, it easily cuts out the core and cuts your apple or pear into several even wedges. This is also great for preparing a healthy snack for kids.
There are two things we look for in a good apple cutter: durability (it has to be sturdy enough to cut countless apples without breaking apart) and comfort (when you’re pushing 6-8 attached blades through an apple, it takes some pressure, and you want a cutter that is designed with your hands in mind.) We believe we’ve found the best one.
The OXO SteeL Apple Divider is everything you would want in an apple cutter: sharp, stainless steel blades that glide easily through fruit and yield perfect slices, with soft grips take the pressure off your hands. And the handles are raised to provide ample clearance between your knuckles and the table. We bought our OXO SteeL Apple Divider years ago, at retail, before we ever got into this business, and it’s been working flawlessly for years. It’s not a flashy device, it’s just a very well-designed, well-made tool that performs its function perfectly: the very essence of a Cool Tool!
