Have you ever peeled, cored, and sliced two huge laundry baskets FULL of apples? By hand…?
I have, and let me tell you – it’s no fun at all! Last fall, we got two tall laundry baskets full of apples. It was great, don’t get me wrong, but we had to either eat them all or preserve them quickly so they wouldn’t go to waste. We opted to preserve them as pie filling, and it was delicious!
About a quarter of the way through our peeling, coring, and slicing, though, I was ready to give up! I really wished at that time that I had one of these apple peeler, slicer, and corer tools!
This year, I just might get my wish, since these are only $12.99 on Amazon right now! The original price of this was $39.99 and you can’t usually find them for less than $20 in stores – if you can find them at all! Overall, I think it’s quite a deal, especially since it could potentially save you hours of work and frustration, and rashy hands.
If you’ve never seen one of these in action, they’re really cool! You stick the apple or potato in the machine and turn the handle. And that’s pretty much it! It would definitely make short work of preserving apples or even making mashed potatoes.
Shipping is free if you have an Amazon Prime account or if your order total is $35 or more.
