Vegetable Corers I Use in My Kitchen

On the photo my most used and favorite corers. Corers so useful to garnish food and of course to prepare fruits and vegetables for cooking. It is easy to use and save our time! If you are planning to do food canning, the tools must have. When shop for corers keep in mind how you are going to use it. For example, my 0.5-inch corer is not strong enough for hard fruit and vegetables. You can see in the photo the corer slightly bent. I bought my corer many years ago if I am going to buy now new one definitely choose stronger one.

Shopping Tips

*When shop online, check newest people reviews about the product and trustful seller. The best guide. For example, I checked reviews for my apple slicer (which I love and want to buy for someone) and people saying new one not working well like old one! So items can look the same, but quality possibly can be different! Don’t be attracted by super cheap items, unless it has really good reviews.
