The Apple Slicer from Alpha & Sigma is as described on the product. I love this type of slicer. It is so easy to place on the top of the apple and press down for nice even slices as well as coring with one motion. The 16 cutting blades are made of stainless steel. This also has non slip large handles. It also is dishwasher safe. I loaned my very old apple slicer to my elderly parents. I actually purchased this to give to them when they return the one I let them borrow. I am a weakling when it comes to my arthritic hands. This did a nice job of slicing. If not baking, good idea to sprinkle with lemon or fruit fresh to prevent oxidation. I was able to purchase this with a discount code.
