Comments about GIRO APPLE SLICER:

Although the concept of this piece of kitchen equipment is very cool and unique, the blade is dull and smashes through the apple, rather than cutting it. Nothing that a good knife sharpener can't resolve I hope. A bit disappointing, considering the German made artistic piece had my expectations high.

Comments about GIRO APPLE SLICER:

I tried this before considering gifting it, but it didn't work as described. My apple slices were paper thin and broke a lot. There was NO continuous spiral as mentioned in the ad. I kept trying to get a different grip on it and bought a large clam shell of good apples in anticipation of making pies and treats. It was hard to start the leading edge (sharp side) and all my pressure to rotate the slicer did more damage to the apple than good.

Comments about GIRO APPLE SLICER:

I LOVE THIS THING!! I never eat apples because they're just not something I enjoy biting into. But this slicer is sooooooo easy and cuts the apple into appetizing, thin, tasty slices! I ripped it out of the box when I got it and immediately ate two of them, just playing with it! Plus, I have a recipe for apple quesadillas that calls for thinly sliced apples, I can finally make them!! I LOVE IT! It's a bit overpriced, but definitely worth it. I bought one for my friend too, who's a chef, and he loves it too!

    Comments about GIRO APPLE SLICER:

    When it works properly, it's great, but it doesn't always. Also, it doesn't core the apple well, so the strand often tears and looks messy.

      The giro makes a very pretty slice and it does keep the cut part of the apple from browning.

        Comments about GIRO APPLE SLICER:

        A bit expensive, but a very well made tool. Cuts apple in thin swirls and if you don't want the entire apple, leave it where it is and the apple with not get brown..great benefit. A bit hard to twist around apple, especially as you get to bottom of apple. But, very unique, well made and durable. Good for making apple pie slices.
