From Ocean Spray, USA : First off I must say it is quite a versatile machine, it has done a good job of streamlining the process of both sizing and firmness testing thus far.  Furthermore, retests performed on random batches have so far come up nearly identical to the results of the first tests, which is a great sign.

When used as penetrometer, you can remove a piece of skin on 2 opposite sides of the fruit, and return the fruits during the cycle (As shown with apples on the video)
