The Pampered Chef Apple Wedger
Advantages: Cuts perfect apple segments and safer than losing a knife (or a tooth)
Disadvantages: May find it fiddly to clean
We have many different kitchen and household gadgets in our house and one of the best ones we have is our Pampered Chef Apple Wedger which we bought about six months ago for just under ten pounds direct from Pampered Chef, as I don't beleive you can actually buy these things in any stores. It was my other half who decided we needed one to mainly encourgae the little lad to eat his fruit as he generally does not like it.
This has a three year guarantee and is made from good solid stainless steel with ten very sharp blades to cut your apple into ten even segments. It is very easy and simple to use and the idea is that you place your apple on the top and press down firmly and hey presto - you are also able to remove the core in the middle and can just chuck it away - so there is no waste. I take a little while to get the apple in position before I press down but once you have used it a few times, it gets a little easier and you get more used to exactly where it is best to place the apple. I particularly like the fact that the handles are very wide (and also made of stainless steel) so this makes gripping hold and pressing down that much easier in my opinion.
It is easy to keep clean but some may find it a little bit fiddly, especially washing between the blades, and you can either wash it by hand or you can also pop it into the dishwasher. Although some may find it fiddly, I personally find it very simple to keep clean and the bits of apple just wash off straight away.
It does look very stylish as it sits on our black worktop and a lot of poeple have commented on how good it looks. It also comes with a very handy plastic protective cover to make sure those sharp blades do not come into contact with inquisitive little fingers.
In our opinion a smashing gadget.
Summary: Great useful little gadget
