Using this Back to Basics device is an even safer way to peel apples than by hand with peelers and knives because your hands are always away from the blades during normal operation. In addition, you can do so many apples so fast that you finish before the mistakes arrive that come with fatigue.
This past Thanksgiving I decided to purchase the Back to Basics Apple & Potato Peeler and was pleasantly suprised to find that it actually works and works very effectively.
This model is easy to adjust the depth of peel and clean up is easy as well. It opperates smoothly and the suction cup holds tight to my formica counter top. It peels, cores and slices apples like a charm and makes short work of peeling a potato.
There are however, a few things that you should be aware. It doesn't come with any clear instructions on how to use or adjust it. (That was no problem tho because all you have to do is go the internet and type in "how to operate a potato/apple peeler". There are plenty of how to videos.) You can adjust the core/slicer blade down out of the way and easily peel potatoes but some potatoes have a flat side and the blade slides right by. If you adjust the blade to hit the flat side it can't accomodate the other side. But it does peel enough of the potato that it takes only a few licks with a regular peeler and your done.
I would definetly recommed this product for anyone even if you don't bake, its a quick and fun way to peel an apple as a snack or knock down that 5 pounds of potatoes for mashing.
Setup takes about 3 minutes. You can choose to peel slice and core or just peel. Making the apple pies I chose to peel slice and core. Loosen a wingnut and adjust the core/peel mechanism and that is it. The spring loaded peeling tool applies the right amount of pressure. There is a release latch so you don't have to "unscrew" the peeler back to the start position. The suction cup holds the machine tight to the smooth counter.
Move the screw to the start position, press the apple on the spears and start turning. The apple begins to get peeled in one switft motion the coring and slicing entail as the apple hits the end of the machine. The slices are even, the core is cleaning removed and the peel comes off in most cases in one piece. I peeled one as fast as I could to see how quickly it would work and I was able to setup peel core and slice then be ready for the next in 20 seconds. Makes the hard part of apple pies and apple sauces a passing thought.
I tried this on potatoes - doesn't work so good for that. Don't question it, just buy one and get rid of using the knife. This machine only takes off the peel too, not a third of the apple like using a knife.
