Apple peelers are mechanical tools which peel, core and slice apples.
Peeling and slicing and coring enough apple to make several apple pies is exausting. Even the though of it makes me tired.
One would need traditional hand peelers, knifes for cutting and maybe a manual apple corer as well to get it all done.
An apple peeler however accomplishes all those things using just one tool and when done correctly can be much more safe.
An apple peeler does three things at once.
There are many blades and sharp edges on these tools. Use caution and follow manufacturer instructions.
Remove the core and repeat with more apples if needed.
The main option that is good to know about is that there are two main ways these tools are kept stable.
This is important to know before you order or purchase.
The clamp base style will not stand up by itself. It will need to be clamped onto the edge of a table or some other surface.
These types can be secured very well and provide a very stable tool to use if clamped correctly.
The suction base style will stand up by itself. It will have a wide based that supports the tool.
These types are most often secured by having a suction cup type of mechanism at the bottom of the base.
This apple peeler (like most) is basically the same as the images you see on this page. These tools are made from a cast so they are for the most part the same as others. This is the suction based version.
