This odd-looking contraption peels, cores, and slices a basket of apples for a tarte, a crisp, or fritters in less time and with less effort than can be done by hand. The old-fashioned apple peeler has a suction cup bottom to keep it steady on a work surface and a clamp to secure it to the edge of a counter or cutting board. To use, skewer an apple on the end of the apple peeler’s three-pronged fork with the tines positioned around the core of the apple. Next, swing the arm that holds the peeling blade toward the apple so it’s just grazing the skin. Start turning the apple corer’s hand crank and the machine simultaneously removes the apple’s skin and core while cutting it into narrow slices that are perfect for pie and desserts or dehydrating. A release button helps you to easily remove your finished apple from the fork. This apple peeler/corer is made of sturdy aluminum and weighs four pounds. Progressive provides an extra blade with the tool and covers it under a five-year warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde

Customer Reviews

Returned it and shopping for another brand.
MabelLucy
Then when it can't bend farther and starts cutting the apple, the alignment is off and it doesn't core right.
Mom of 3
I used it for making slices for apple pies which helps when you can get the apples peeled so quickly.

I had a small problem with this apple peeler, as I bake apple pies quite a bit. The blade bent, and would no longer core and peel fully. Well..I contacted Progressive, and they immediately had me send it back to them. They found the problem, let me know what it was..then sent me a new one, no questions asked. I love this peeler..so I was quite happy and very impressed. The point is..if you have a problem, they will remedy it immediately. Buy this peeler..as it works great, saves lots of time and you can rely on Progressive 100%! They stand behind their products..and don't look to blame you for any malfunction, as many companies do. :)

I don't know why I waited so long to get one of these. When I think of how many Holidays I stayed up late peeling potatoes.
I love peeler, I can cut a 10pd bag of potatoes in 12-20 mins!
We even tried cucumbers, and it works well with any fruit or veggie that is hard and has a skin. So now when my family wants homemade mashed potatoes or potatoe salad, they get it and I am not in the kitchen all day.

I've had one of these for years and it is the greatest. The clamp on style works better than the suction cup type, I think. Mine has interchangeable blades so it will peel and core or peel and spiral slice. Works for firm pears and potatoes as well as apples. And it is unusual enough that children {and men!} are willing to help just to get to work it!

This apple peeler is fun to use. It is the first one I have ever owned and really appreciate the time saved over doing the same job by hand. I baked an apple cake today which called for four peeled, cored and sliced baking apples. The apples where ready within five minutes! I would recommend peeling both ends of the apple before doing the rest on the peeler, as the peeler cannot reach that last 1/2" or so at either end. Other than this minor "flaw" it peels, cores and slices perfectly.

The apple peeler and corer does what it says it does pretty well. However it has a couple of serious flaws, it is difficult to remove apple cores from the prongs, I cut my thumb badly trying to do this. More generally the design makes it very difficult to get clean and dry and, because it is made of steel, drying it well is essential. Despite my best efforts the central shaft on mine has rusted.

Overall 3 stars, it is worth the cleaning and drying effort for doing a pile of apples, but not worth getting it out for a few.

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.)

this is such a useful as well as fun tool to have in your kitchen....it peels, cores and slices all at the same time.....it takes about 3 seconds to finish out an apple....as a footnote, it also works on potatoes....

Simply amazing.

This is a wonder for dehydrating. It took about 5 minutes to peel, core, and slice an entire bag of apples. My only complaint is with the plastic disk on the bottom side of the table clamp. It seems something that has more "grab" like a hard rubber would be more appropriate. Other than that its only weakness is with weak or soft apples, it will spin out the core and no longer be able to rotate the apple through the slicer. Although, my mistake was getting soft apples in the first place, yuck!
