Some helpful reviews
a Really worth the money spent, in saved time and frustration. It will peel, core and slice an potatos and apple as fast as you can turn the handle, about 30 seconds per apple. You’ll probably peel more potatos and apples then you need, just because it’s neat to watch it work.
Minus: You have to hold the cutter back until it gets started on BIG apples (or LARGE potatoes).
You need a smooth non porious surface to attach it too or it requires two hands to use it.
This is the first year my little orchard has produced large quantities of apples, so I hauled out a vintage mechanical peeler that had been sitting in the attic for 25 years. I spent an hour trying to fine tune it and not have it destroy every apple I tried. I thought I was stuck with hand peeling, but decided to check and see if there was anything available that wasn’t more trouble than it was worth. After reading the reviews for various peelers here, and watching a bunch of YouTube videos, I decided to give this one a try. It worked perfectly right out of the box, and required only about 30 seconds to screw on the handle and the tines.
- Solid construction, nicely machined, and well-finished
- Suction base sticks fiercely to my granite counter and doesn’t come loose; if you have a smooth, non-porous surface to mount it on, this is so much better than the ones that clamp to the underside of the counter with a screw (and invariably wobble)
- Very clearly written instruction book (not some bad translation into English from another language)
- Reasonable price (I know there is another one on this site that looks about the same, and costs a few bucks less, but I thought this one had better overall reviews)
- Works with a wide variety of potato and apple sizes, even ones that are pretty large; also adapts well to lopsided apples without messing up
- The hoop that does the coring does a really good job of keeping the apple centered, despite the shape of the apple. You just need to do your best to align the apple when mounting it on the tines, but the peeler is pretty forgiving even if the apple has a fair amount of wobble
- Once it starts cutting it doesn’t miss any part of the peel on the bulk of the apple; it leaves only about 1/8″ at the top and bottom where the apple is “flat”…and I just eat that
- The spiral cut slices are a great thickness for dehydrating, for freezing, and for making pies
