I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product! It is so simple to use and makes applesauce making so much easier. There is no need to peel or core the apples before using it. Just simply wash, slice, cook until soft, and then run then through the grinder. It does a wonderful job separating the peel and core from the apple. It's a very quick process, too! If you have a large amount of apple to work through, I would recommend purchasing the larger tray.
