Dezertsuz "Dezertsuz": I have used this on over 100 pounds of apples for canning and applesauce. Two things are annoying, hence 4 stars instead of 5. When it begins to get juicy, the clamp sometimes slips on the counter. If the apple core is not centered in your apple, it's a big mess, so eat those apples instead of using them with the machine. Otherwise, this works perfectly, and makes canning and cooking apples so much more "appealing."
frederick jacobs: this is a great peeler and corer we made a lot of apple sauce and juice and some pies. thanks
G. Powell: I had mine for 20 years and it recently broke. But heck, that's pretty good lifetime for this sort of gadget.On the downside, when I got it, it didn't peel very well. But after fiddling with the alignment of the blade it worked great. In addition with rough sided home grown apples, it can skip some of the peel. If you guide the cutter with your free hand it does most of the peel. Then a sharp bird's beak knife finishes the job in one or two swipes.For one apple it's not worth the cleanup vs a knife. For a pie with 6 to 8 apples it's wonderful. All the slices are even so the pie cooks evenly.I'll be buying a second one. (mine is the clamp version and I just clamp it to my pull out cutting board.)
Jeff Pastoor: This little gadget is slick. Put an apple on the end, turn the crank, and you have an apple that is peeled, cored, and sliced. I use it to make apples for pie filling and it takes me half the time now.
jen-marie: I have had three of this type of peeler/corer/slicer. The first was this one (The Pampered Chef Apple Peeler/corer/slicer) purchased probably at least 12 years ago which is now getting a bit dull. I bought the one that this review is for and another one (Apple Peeler Corer and Slicer Clamp Base - Back to Basics model A501) recently.There are two parts to this review--the first deals with this TYPE of peeler, and the other deals with this particular peeler.These peelers are handy. I do a lot of chunky applesauce, and the peeling/coring/slicing (especially the slicing) is very handy. They do have their problems, though:- The slicing blades aren't long enough. My apples are frequently too big to put in the machine until I cut them down, which means I have to peel them by hand as well.- You have to be careful about the coring, just like with any corer. Apples aren't all alike, and it's a little hard to make sure that you have the apple on the prongs straight. So you have to make sure (if you're not using a food mill at some later point) that you cut out whatever little bits of core are left.- It's a little messy. Juice sprays a bit and drips. You want to have a towel under the table, and you want to move anything a couple of feet away from the machine, unless you don't mind cleaning apple juice off it.- The machine always misses some peel around the stem and blossom ends of the apple. It is trickier to remove the peel from the apple manually once the apple has been sliced.Despite all of this, it is still a lot handier to use a good one of these than to do it by hand.This one is a good one. It does all that it says it does as well as can be expected. It is a little annoying that it takes two hands to make the peeling arm stay back, but that's really the only difference I found between this one and the Pampered Chef one which is a lot more expensive. It worked well, and was sharp enough, and stayed relatively solidly clamped to the table.It is really handy and I really like it, but because of the things listed above that are the same on all of these types of peelers (especially the bit about the blade being too short for large apples) I can't quite give it 5 stars. But I would certainly recommend it.
