I use this for one thing and one thing only- coring jalapenos to do dove wraps. I’ve been cooking dove this way for more than 20 years and my technique had (HAD) always been to cut (while wearing gloves and glasses) the end off the pepper, then cut it length-wise, then use a spoon to scrape the guts and seeds out. Not the best but it worked.This corer is SO much better. Chop the end off, give 2 quick twists, tap the pepper on the cutting board and then cut down the length. Much cleaner result and saves a lot of time. When you’re doing dozens and dozens of birds a few minutes here and a few minutes there adds up. Great purchase.

I bought this to core peppers with after having issues with the other flimsy pepper corers on the market. Works great, nice and sturdy. Only issue I have found is that it is a bit big for the smaller peppers (sweet, jalapeno) and can take a little more of the flesh than I want sometimes but that is something I can live with. Cleans the insides out very nicely.

I’ve made stuffed jalapeños for years and this is hands down the best kitchen tool I’ve ever used for the task!Using gentle motion, the serrated edges make easy work of completely cutting loose the pith and seeds. There’s also a thin scraper on the convex surface of the blade that removes any dangling strands of pith still inside the pepper. The grip is comfortable and the double serrated edges make the corer usable in the right or left hand. I loved using mine so much that I bought another one as a gift for my brother. This is one specialty kitchen gadget the lives up to, if not exceeds, all exceptions.

If you are looking for a way to core jalapeños then look no further. This product functions as designed and works great. The handle is big enough to easily manipulate it while cooking but small enough to easily wrap your hands around for a firm grip. The serrated cutting edge easily hollows out the jalapeño guts while the cutting edge cuts the jalapeño membrane. Overall this is a great kitchen tool that was purchased as a replacement for my previous one that was lost in a move.

My wife makes salsa and would get the seeds on her hands quite often while preparing it and would have to deal with the burning. Since I bought her this, she rarely has issues with the seeds. I’ve tried it a few times too, and it is very easy to use. I didn’t rate the “durability” since I have only had it a short time, but it is well made and expect it to receive a good rating.

This is the best purchase I have made in a long time!! I absolutely love it!! Not only is it a big time-saver but it also saves me from getting the jalapeño juice all over my hands. I would highly recommend this product.

There are a surprising number of jalapeño corers for sale on Amazon and I had a really hard time knowing which one to choose. Many of them are more or less at the same price point, too, so that didn’t help me either. Because I’ve never owned another one, I also don’t have any way to compare different types of tools. I’m really under-selling my review, aren’t I?Here’s how I use the tool: I run the serrated blade between the core and the flesh of the jalapeño and then scrape the dislodged core out with the blade. That takes out most, but leaves some membrane and seeds behind. At that point, I scrape the remaining membrane and seeds out with the blade. I’m sure this is essentially the same method everyone uses and that I’m not contributing much with this description, but without reading instructions or advice on how to core a pepper, this is what was most intuitive.Formerly, I used a small knife, and that was really ineffective and imprecise. This fits well inside the pepper and makes the job considerably easier and faster. Also, the seeds don’t stick to the blade nearly as much as they stick to an ordinary knife. There’s a large opening in the middle of the blade, as you can see, and so many of the seeds fall through. The gap also discourages the seeds from sticking. I’m not having to constantly wipe my blade before coring another jalapeño.Another corer on here pulls out the center with sort of a curled piece, and I can’t speak to the effectiveness of that, but I don’t think it’s necessary based solely on my experience with this one. Once you cut around the center, it comes out with issue. This is a very simple design, but as such, it can be better adapted for a variety of uses and pepper sizes. I like it.Like others, I make jalapeño poppers, but low-carb ones – I soften cream cheese, add cilantro, garlic, and other spices, as well as a little shredded cheddar, and stuff, then bake. No breading. Before this corer, my method was to cut in half and scrape seeds and membranes, but they look so much prettier whole. And now that coring them is so easy, I’m making this recipe a lot more.I guess what I need now is a way to more easily stuff my whole peppers.

I love stuffed jalapenos! However, I DID NOT enjoy making them at all, UNTIL THIS TOOL CAME INTO MY LIFE! This crafty little tool makes cleaning out the inside of a jalapeno super quick! No more using knifes and stabbing my hand/fingers! I don’t have to worry about accidently cutting through the skin of the jalapeno anymore (or my own for that matter)! Now I enjoy both making the stuffed jalapenos and eating them!Recently, a friend was making stuffed jalapenos for a cookout and she was having the same struggles as me before I owned this tool. She complained about the time it took to clean out each one, and now the knife method didn’t do a good job in taking all the stuff out. I ordered this for her as a gift. She immediately used it and was fascinated about how easy it is to use and how it made making stuffed jalapenos so much easier, without the mess, and without using a knife to clean the insides. I definitely recommend this to anyone that loves to eat stuffed jalapenos like I do!

So glad I bought this! Anyone that ever fixes jalapeños, this is a must have. Some reviews stated that it does not work well with smaller jalapeños, I have had no problem.

This is a great tool! The first time I tried to core jalapeños, I tried a variety of knives and any other sharp pointy tools I could find in the kitchen. In the end, my best option was a Swiss Army knife, but it was far from ideal. It took me forever, made a huge mess, and no matter how careful I was, I still tore the tops of the jalapeños. I was determined to find a better way to core a silly jalapeño. I read reviews on Amazon for several different jalapeño corers, and I am SO glad I chose this one! It works great!! In just a short time, I had 14 perfectly cored jalapeños, with 14 intact cores. (See photo.) I highly recommend this tool!!
