I can say it works wonderfully. Having a vise grip on the bottom and not a suction cup is key. After about 10 apples there's a puddle of apple juice under the tool, so I imagine a suction cup wouldn't work well. It's easy to use. Softer apples can be tricky, but I've found that you can place a finger on the spring-loaded peeler to add a little resistance so it doesn't cut so deep into the apple flesh. I mean, when I'm preparing 30lbs of apples at a time for sauce....it's a two handed affair anyway. When I go to slice the spiral-cut apples in half, I inspect for seed parts and do some quality control. It's not a perfect tool, but it does a very good job. If you want to eat an apple...go ahead and hand cut. But for more than 5-6 apples, I'll pull this tool out of the closet. I like the thin slices for pie. You get a denser pie.
My one complaint: The materials. It's part stainless, part aluminum. After a few apples, when the juice begins to flow, the metal parts that rub against each other create this black metal paste that can get messy. And it's certainly not anything I want in my food! It's mostly confined to the threads on the long screw to which you attach the apple. I keep a wet rag and wipe it down every 10 apples or so. It wasn't hard to keep the apples out of it....but still. When it comes to food, use only food safe materials. Uncoated aluminum is unacceptable. I would definitely have paid $10-$15 more for an all stainless model.
My very own Pampered Chef Apple Peeler/Corer/Slicer (PCS) arrived at my house, bought for me by my husband. He knew I was pouting about the Spiralizer - he saw the face. I had the PCS working on apples, zucchinis, sweet potatoes, and more. When he got home he adjusted the peeler blade's gap and started his own pile of food slinkys. He was more more adept, at first, in mounting apples for better coring line up. He would line the apple up with the circular cutting blade, disengage the rod, spike the apple, and then back the apple up so the peeler would start before the corer/slicer part started its business. Hardly took a moment longer. Grandma would have been so proud.
P.S, the curly sweet potato fries were great. Make "coins" out of the sweet potato core - kids will dig them.
Update - - 3/10/14 Well I was so eager to use the appliance that I failed to adjust the peeler properly, until last week. Since then, apple pies have been coming out the oven frequently. Ummmmm good ! ! I am estatic ! ! I am indebted to Pampered Chef for such a wonderful apparatus ! Forgive me for being impatient and not taking the time to properly adjust the peeler. Shame on me ! : (

Bought this a replacement for the one I broke, be care not to over tighten the clamp (don't use tools) you will shear the handle right off.
Otherwise, this thing is amazing! Read more
