What Are Pulses? The Food EVERYONE Will Talk About in 2016

What Is This?

This mysterious kitchen gadget was found by TeamSugar member jendudley. To find out what it is,

Believe it or not, it's an apple slicer! This disc is designed to rotate around the apple, if you don't want but a few slices, you leave it up against the apple and it won't dry out or turn brown. Talk about clever! This dishwasher-safe, stainless steel device was designed by Jessica Battram and is sold out in most places, but you can find it for around $38.

To jendudley...You're supossed to grip the outside of the disc thing and twist it around the fruit. The blade in the middle makes a cut in the fruit to help...like this.<img src="http://www.momastore.org/wcsstore/MOMASTORE1/images/l_53826.jpg">The apple has to be smaller than the slicer, or it won't work. But the slicer's pretty big, so that shouldn't be a problem. On the Food Network, the guy who was demonstrating how to use it got through a whole potato.And they don't mention that for an apple, you're supossed to core it before you try & slice it.

I know the blade is isolated, but it looks like it needs a handle. Imagine the juice of the apple spilling on to the thing while you are turning it and getting slippery. How do you rotate it when it is halfway through the apple?

Jendudley: I don't think the blade is all the way around, but it does look uncomfortable to hold. They should make cute plastic colorful rings on the outside.I would surely use this!
