Peels Quick but can't clean it
on October 20, 2013
After reading so many wonderful reviews, I was excited to get this peeler. We have a large apple tree and I was hoping to find a peeler that would keep up.
Pros: The peeler stays in place very well with the suction cups. It does peel the apples very fast and it peels all sizes which is great. The handle is easy to grip and the blade moves quickly over the apple. The blade is very sharp, I was able to peel boxes of apples in one day using the same blade. It does however come with a bonus blade. Also it has safety covers for the blade and apple holder, great bonus because it is very sharp!
Cons: To start off the handle falls off easily, not to big of a deal it hooks right back on. Also if the apples have bruises, it tends to get snagged on them. For the most part, I loved the apple peeler until it came time to clean it. I followed the directions exactly, but the device itself isn't sealed along the edges and the juices form the apples get inside it. I tried running it under water to get it clean, but no luck. My sister also bought one and I asked her and she had the same problem and she ended up throwing it away. It's to bad, because this is a great peeler.
