The Giro Apple Slicer can make an apple a day a little more fun.

The Giro Apple Slicer Uncommon Goods

Slicing an apple into a perfect spiral isn't the easiest thing to do. The Giro Apple Slicer can make the process relatively simple, whether you want a pretty accent for a dish or a fun way to eat an apple. The slicer curves into the apple, cutting the spiral around the core in a smooth stroke. It looks like a simple stainless-steel disc, missing the center and with a slight bend, but the Giro Apple Slicer is a useful tool to have. It is sharp, though, so even if a little one wants a spiral-cut apple, it's probably better if an adult actually uses the slicer.

The Giro Apple Slicer was designed by Jessica Battram and Christina Schafer and is manufactured in Germany by Mono, a company specializing in high quality flatware and table accessories. The slicer is dishwasher-safe, making cleanup of sticky apple juices that much easier. It works equally well with similar fruit, such as pears, and can be perfect for constructing elegant dishes or garnishing meals, as well as making unique snacks. If you're a fan of fruit in savory dishes, the Giro Apple Slicer can help you add a particularly unique touch. The Giro Apple Slicer is priced at $38.
