Application September 21, 1944, Serial No. 555,145

1 Claim.

This invention relates to a device designed for removing the cores of apples or pears, the primary object of the invention being to provide a corer which may be operated to remove the entire core from the fruit, or which may be forced into the fruit at the blossom end, a distance whereby only a portion of the core may be removed, thereby providing a recess or opening in the fruit for the reception of sugar or other seasoning material desirable when cooking the fruit.

Another object of the invention is to provide a corer of this character having means for readily expelling from the corer that portion of the core removed .from the fruit.

With the foregoing and other objects in view, which Will appear as the description proceeds, the invention consists of certain novel details of lconstruction and combinations of parts hereinafter mo-re fully described and pointed out in the claim, it being understood that changes may be made in the method disclosed and in the construction and arrangement of parts Vwithout departing from the spirit of the invention as claimed.

Referring to the drawing:

Figure 1 is an elevational view of a corer constructed in accordance with the invention.

Figure 2 is a longitudinal sectional view of the corer.

Figure 3 is a sectional View taken on line 3 3, Figure 1.

Figure 4 is a sectional view taken on Figure 2.

Referring to the drawing in detail, the corer comprises a tubular body portion, indicated generally by the reference character 5, the handle of the corer being indicated by the reference character` 6, the handle being positioned in one end of the body portion 5, where it is secured by means of the pin 1.

One end of the body portion has a beveled edge, providing a cutting edge 8 so that the body portion may be readily forced into the blossom end of the fruit to be cored, to insure a clean-cut.

The reference character 9 designates a blade which is disposed longitudinally of the body prtion 5, the blade being extended inwardly from the wall of the body portion, at right angles to the wall, with the result that when the device is forced into fruit to remove a portion of the core, the blade will anchor the device to the core, so that when the core is twisted, the portion of the core cut, may be broken loose from the remaining portion of the core and readily removed. This blade is substantially long, so that it will be capable of cutting through the fruit to remove the entire core if desired.

line 4 4,

Disposed within the body portion is a rod I0, which carries the plunger ll at one end thereof, the plunger Il being formed with a slot for the reception of the blade S. At the opposite end of the rod l0, is a disk l2 which is of a diameter to closely fit within the body portion, so that the rod and plunger Will be held for true movement longitudinally of the body portion.

Formed integral with the disk I2 is a finger piece I3 which extends laterally through the elongated opening ld formed in the wall of the body portion 5.

In the use of the corer, the corer is forced into the blossom end of the fruit to the desired distance and then the corer is twisted slightly to sever the core from the body of the fruit. The core will remain in the body and be expelled therefrom by forcing the plunger ll toward the cutting edge 8.

What is claimed:

A fruit corer, comprising a tubular body portion, one end of the body portion providing a handle, the opposite end of the body portion being beveled providing a. cutting edge, said body portion having an elongated opening formed in the wall thereof, the ends of the opening being spaced from the ends of the body portion appreciable distances, a, rod disposed within the body portion, a disk mounted on each end of the rod, one of said disks providing a plunger, said rod and disks adapted to move Within the body portion, a nger piece formed integral with one of said disks and being extended through the opening in the wall of the body portion whereby said plunger is moved to expel material from the body portion, and an inwardly extended longitudinal blade formed within the body portion and having a beveled cutting edge disposed within the body portion and being disposed between the lower end of the opening in the body portion and beveled cutting edge of the body portion whereby a portion of the core being removed is secured against movement with respect to the core when the core is twisted in removing the core.
