An apple corer is a device for removing the core and pips from an apple. It may also be used for similar fruits, such as pears or quince.

Some apple corers consist of a handle with a circular cutting device at the end. When pushed through the apple, it removes the core, to the diameter of the circular cutting device. The core can then be removed from the apple corer.

Another type of apple corer can be placed on top of the apple and pushed through. This both cores and slices the apple. This is also often called apple cutter.

An apple corer is often used when many apples need to be cored, such as when making an apple pie or brewing cider.
