General

Level of diffculty:

Difficult / demanding

Word or term in question:

Appareil à crumble

Context:

This phrase comes from a list of fancy desserts. The word 'appareil' occurs in similar phrases: 'Appareil brownie et cookie aux pépites de chocolat', 'Appareil à tatin', etc.
It is the sense of 'appareil' in these culinary phrases that is bothering me.

My comment:

"apparatus" or "machine" should be avoided as they sound too industrial. Why not just use a neologism which will be perfectly meaningful given the context you present?
