This is not an advertisement – although I wish that I was paid to write. No, this is just a conveyance of my extreme joy and approval of a new member of my little kitchen family. Meet the apple/potato peeler.
It not only peels, but also slices and cores. It joined our little kitchen community on Christmas day (thanks Aunt Linda), but did not really show off its talent until today.
And guess what?
It took me 6 seconds to peel a potato. Just 6 seconds. Amazing! I am actually looking forward to apple season this year. Not to mention the fact that I can make my own curly fries.
So, if you have an apple tree or really like potatoes, I strongly recommend purchasing this handy dandy piece of equipment. Your hands wrists and patience will thank you for it.
There are, however, a few things to consider:
- If you have wooden counter tops, the suction version may not be for you.
- If you have big/long potatoes or apples, I suggest cutting them in half as the machine cannot really do its job with larger specimens.
- The ends of the potatoes will still have their skins.
