Starfrit Apple Pro Peeler with Apple Slicer & Core Ejector
Simple to use and lightweight
I have one of those heavy steel ones that I use when I want to peel five bushels of apples for applesauce. I wanted something that was easy care, easy to use and quick. This took care of all my wants. I takes about three seconds to peel my apple, core my apple, rinse my pro peeler and wipe it off. Done. No mess and no fuss. Perfect for someone that likes a simple apple now and again and don't want to lug out the heavy machinery.
Works great but.....
The apple peeler worked great except that, like other reviewers had said, it doesn't peel the very bottom of the apple and you have to peel it manually. That said, it does make quick work of peeling. Additionally, regarding the apple wedge slicer that came with it, I have to say unless you have a perfect apple where the core sits perpendicular, you have to position the apple crooked on the cutting board or the slices will be all off. I sliced apples for a pie and the slices were very inconsistent, plus I had to manually remove the cores from some of the slices. My guess is you'd have to use the corer first, THEN the wedger.
BEST PURCHASE I HAVE MADE YET!
I bought this to put apples in the freezer. We put up 1 1/2 bushels and they were seconds. It didn't matter if the apple was perfect or not it never failed. Even my husband was impressed, and he is hard to convince. We have had others for more money that did not perform as well.
Good Purchase for Apple Peeling
I would love to give this 5 stars instead of 4. This apple peeler is almost perfect except that it DOES NOT completely peel the skin off the bottom part of any apple that I peel. If this could be corrected or improved in the next model, this would get 5 stars. I made a sheet apple pie and this gadget helped a lot . Like I said before, I still had to peel the bottom of the apple. My kids are now eating healthier b/c they love this gadget. Now they want to eat apples more. So just improve the design, and this peeler will be perfect. I am glad that I bought it and would still recommend buying it. Takes extra work outta making an apple pie or apple sauce.
At first I thought how good can this be as it was priced so economically, but I was pleasantly surprised. This little gadget works and works great. In the flick of your hand it has an apple completed peeled and the corer finishes the job completely. Don't let the price fool you. I have purchased an apple peeler previously priced exceedingly higher that did not do the great job this peeler does. Good purchase, you can't go wrong.
One of the. Best kitchen tools
This is one of the best kitchen tools that I have bought- and I am a"gadget queen".it is easy to use,and clean-and makes making apple pie a breeze. Give this one a try, you I won't be sorry.
Honestly one of the best QVC purchases I've ever made. And I've made a lot of them!!!
I received this as a gift. Loved it so much, I bought for a gift. The peeling is good and easy. With arthritis my only problem was pushing the core out but easy for grand kids to do. I would recommend to anyone doing multiple apples.
Best apple peeler set
I bought this and had tucked it away, then when my son got braces I got this out to try it out. This was quick and easy to use. I was amazed on how well it works! This is an all in one set that can't be missed! I love it and my son loves the apples!
I saw this and thought it would be worth a try. I make apple slices for the holidays and was so tired of peeling apples. It was a major chore. This apple peeler is exactly as shown and described! I could not believe it was so fast until I peeled my first apple. I can find nothing wrong with this product! It is saving me so much time I still can't believe it. Not to mention, not wasting alot of the apple by peeling by hand, an extra bonus!
Great little tool
Neat little gadget that really works. Maybe not an essential cooking tool but it sure makes apple season a lot more fun!
I bought this for a friend of mine who owns a small bakery/mercantile in the beautiful mountains of NC. Todd, NC, just outside of Boone.
I've watched her for the past 2 apple seasons, peeling, coring and slicing ALOT of apples for her pies and cakes. So, anyway, she received this last week and she LOVES it. I went to see her today and she demonstrated it. One thing she does is, she flips the apple over, with the bottom up and peels the bottom.
QVC just saved my friend from having anymore hand cramps. Thanks Q.
