Ideal for potatoes and pears. Not just for apple paring, coring and slicing use the Norpro Apple-Mate® and Apple-Master® to create curly fries, chips-on-a-stick using russets or sweet potatoes. Scallop potatoes. Quickly create onion twists to deep fry, make french onion soup or to garnish a steak or hamburger. Core and slice pears for dessert.
