Well made, handy device -- I agree with the problem one buyer had, that the diameter is too small for some apples, and apple corers do come in various sizes, but given the situation of having THIS one and larger apples, it's easy enough to take a screwdriver or other such implement that fits inside (or a small needlenose pliers), and gently wiggle it to enlarge the corer's diameter (which also has the benefit of a gap and making it easier to use a fork tine to remove the core.

The corer makes quick work of getting the core out of the apple, but there's no safe & easy way to get the core out of the tool. You'd think it would just slip out, but I had to cut the excess at the back with a knife, then poke the remainder with a chopstick, taking care not to core my thumb or finger in the process...

We all had these at home in Holland. I was happy to get this but unfortunately the size is not useful for California sized apples so I returned. Wusthof kitchen tools last a life time, I was disappointed this would not work for me.
