Hi Steve and Group: A tomato corer is similar in appearnace to a melon baller or parisian scoop. But it is shallow, small in diameter (perhaps a 1/3 of inch across) and has serations around the edge. I must admit I usually just do the paper towel thing. Sometimes, i will use a paring knife to get things started. Most of the time the membrane will come off in one piece. Everyones mileage will vary of course.
