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.

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SCgardener Best time saver EVER!
I love this tool so much that I have purchased three of them. I gave one to my son-in-law to make pies. I gave one to my son to make it easy to grab an apple for dieting. I will buy more for gifts in the future. I can core and slice an apple in less than a minute. We wipe it down and throw it in a drawer.

This stays out year-round at our house and is used several times a week. We love to make "apple sandwiches" with almond or peanut butter, using the unpeeled apple slices instead of bread.
When we make apple pies, our granddaughters grab the long strands of peels and chomp on them while the pile of apple rings grows. It looks a little worse for wear and tear, but is a truly well-designed, long-lasting item that is still useful --and sharp, after thousands of apples in 20 years. I'm online to order more for gifts!

I have had an Apple Peeling Gizmo for years and have used it often. I recently used it for a church dinner. It was so quick an easy the people hand peeling apples were amazed. My wife and I ordered one for the church so they can use it when we are not there. It is sure to increase the number of apple pies at the church because it is so easy. I have never used it to peel potatoes. Our chef at church is going to try that next week.

I bought the apple peeler/corer for my parents' anniversary, since they love to make applesauce but hate spending hours peeling. The problem: it wouldn't suction to the table. After five reasonably intelligent adults couldn't get it to stick, we gave up and called L.L. Bean. Their customer service is great and they shipped us a new one with no problem. The second one suctions as it's supposed to, and now there is always fresh applesauce when I visit my parents. They love how easy it is to use and how quickly it peels and cores the apples.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AppleGizmo Good Purchase
I experience pain in my hands when peeling a large amount of potatoes, apples, I saw this on website and thought it would be a good thing to try. It takes a small amount of time adjusting the device to your liking. Once this is how you like it, peeling apples for a pie is a breeze. I also tried a few potatoes and it worked well. I used the device on granite countertop. The suction cup came loose a few times, could be from all the liquid from apples. My husband said, oh no, another gadget for the kitchen, he tried it and really liked it. Overall, I was very pleased with my purchase. I have used it several times.
