A real cool gadget

One day, before JW left for Greener Pastures Sdn Bhd, she asked me out of the blue... "Do you have an apple corer at home?". Hah? What's that? Then she started to describe this thingamajig she saw whilst she was walking around one of our favorite places IKEA. I was listening rather half heartedly as whatever it was, it didn't really sound that exciting.

A few days later, she bought one and gave it to me.


First look.. mmm.. a cross between a frisbee and a plastic space ship. Thanked her for it and brought it back. Didn't use it immediately as I had no apples at home. Don't believe it would work on an orange though, else it won't be called an apple corer would it :).

Decided to test it last week, finally ... and wallah..it is so easy to use... and also it saves the hassle of having a piece of apple looking bigger than the next...you know how little children can be...especially my niece and her brother.... sometimes you think you'll need to bring the scale out to weigh all the food up so that there is no fighting over who's piece is bigger.



I am not sure the exact price of this gadget but I think JW mentioned that it costs below RM10. Great piece of kitchen tool..... and no batteries REQUIRED :)

Looks good. Will get one for myself too.

In any case, I sort of expecting at the beginning that it would peel off the skin too! sigh.. disapppointed, no less, I would still get one anyway since it's so cheap.
