I already have a regular apple corer and of course a suitable knife for preparing apples for whatever I am making. However this Amco Clean Cut Apple Corer is so easy to use, and to clean. Being a diabetic I eat several pieces of apple each day as snacks. Now I have a small plastic bag of perfectly cut apple portions on hand. Also the Clean Cut Apple Corer makes a perfect circle when it removes the inner part of the apple. This a very useful tool to have in my kitchen.
Thanks to Chefs for selling such a wonderful tool.

I have often wondered if such an item as a portion scoop would be useful when making meat balls.
Why did I wait so long? It is a very useful tool to make same sized meatballs. The scoop is easy to hold and use. Also very easy to clean when finished with the meatball making.
I would recommend this tool to anyone who makes homemade meatballs.
Thanks to Chefs for selling this item.

Nice to grind my dry herbs well, instead of my usual scissors. Very easy to fill and use, and the herbs were in small pieces - perfect for my soups. Now looking for dry herbs in the supermarket.

This fry pan is the best fry pan I have ever owned. I cooked an egg, which cooked quickly and then slipped it off easily onto a plate. Very easy to clean. I would recommend this fry pan to anyone who is looking for a small fry pan.
