Apple Peeler Review

September 22, 2010

The first time you use an apple peeler/corer (after you have assembled it, a maximum of five minutes) you think to yourself, where have you been all my life? All those apple pies could have been made so much faster. But the reality is,
you should really only invest in a peeler/corer if you are peeling more than 10 apples.

The peeler/corer works best with pairs of two people, one to peeler/core the apple and another to chop it into desires pieces. I only wish that the apple peeler/corer would be more stable. The suction version (on the left) is great to minimize the juice from the apples whereas the model shown below has a clamp. Both designs have flaws, the suction is not always strong enough and the clamp moves side to side.  The suction model was purchased from Williams-Sonoma, while the clamp version was purchased last year from the Canning Pantry.

We also noticed a model from the Pampered Chef, with a box base.  We may give this a try in the future to see how well it captures the peels and juice.  In the meantime, a cookie sheet works well…

    We have both of these, but we have used the suction cup model exclusively. So far, in two years, we have peeled three bushels of apples with ours and we love it! After the first year I ordered a few sets of replacement blades because I know I’m going to want to continue using this for many years.

    The model of peeler in the first picture is sold under many different names, but is obviously made in the same factory. They can be found for as little as $20 sometimes.
