This apple corer/slicer is one of my favorite kitchen tools! I didn’t know about it until my 6 year old son’s Kindergarten teacher brought hers in to cut up apples for this year’s Thanksgiving Feast.
To use the tool, place the apple on a flat surface making sure that the stem area is centered in the middle hole of the apple slicer. This ensures that all the seeds stay in the cored area. Using both handles, press down hard with the slicer. As you can see from the picture, the slices can be grabbed from the top. I usually push the core out the bottom and put it in our compost bucket.
I think a 10 year old child may be able to use this slicer with some supervision for technique. Since slicing the apple is a bit difficult, I wouldn’t recommend letting a younger child try.
