The corer will remove the stem, core, and seeds in one fluid motion.

Built with sharp stainless steel edges, the corer can effortlessly carve through peppers without leaving behind a mess. The Amazon's Choice tool makes meal prep and mise-en-place a breeze, getting the job done quickly and saving you both time and extra effort.
