Rated 3 out of 5 by MelissaJane it's ok
I love the way this peels but after the first day the bottom would not stick to my counter tops. I have to wet the rubber bottom down to get it to stick for just a few minutes. I am thinking of returning it because of this. I think there is another brand that begins with a V..if you want to buy one of these, google that brand and buy that one instead. It's been around forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goodreview Have one at vacation home also.
I just love this little Gizmo. I even use it for potatoes when I make scalloped potatoes. When you peel an apple, the long row of skin is great for the birds.
I ordered one for our vacation home also. Makes making an apple pie a breeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by roseguypaul Very cool machine
Very slick little machine. Does it all at once. Very well made, cast iron base. Similar item is available at other sites and stores, but do not carry Beans lifetime guarantee, free shipping ,and a better base. It's the only way to go

Rated 5 out of 5 by Philippians413 Terrific, well-made, dependable, long-lasting
This is my second apple peeler. I bought the other one over 20 years ago. The old one still peels and cores perfectly, but the suction isn't as strong. The new one is perfect and I look forward to 20-plus more years of apple peeling. I commend LLBean on their customer service. They replaced the cutting blade on the first one years ago.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BrockportBill It's okay
Works fine with medium size apples that are firm. It doesn't work well with large apples or apples that are soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pks2000 Excellent quality device
What a great piece of equipment! Makes peeling apples a snap and has options for just peeling or peeling/coring/slicing. Pies or apple crisp take a fraction of the time using this! Didn't try potatoes but would imagine the potato would have to be small and smooth. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by celticlizzie Best thing ever!!
I picked this up a while ago, and finally gave it a try today. It's amazing!! Apple crisp is a favorite at our house, but peeling the apples has been no fun in the past. Once I figured out the tension, it worked great! Peeled, cored, and sliced half a dozen apples in no time! The apple crisp is smelling delicious in the oven right now! Considering we picked close to 18 pounds of apples today, it's going to get a workout soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by McGonigle Apple Peeler
I purchased this peeler several years ago and it has been used a great deal. Peeling apples by hand was a bore but now I can put a pie together in no time with this handy gizmo.

Rated 5 out of 5 No home should be without one!
We purchased one of these years ago and it finally gave out after daily use. So easy to use and clean. If you use apples for a recipe or just eating this works great!
