I just received my Johnny Apple Peelertoday and am so excited. I did my homework on Amazon, looked at the comments They were many and varied. One person said that he tried to return his machine to the maker who told him that it was a knockoff made in China, instead of Taiwan (that was my first checkpoint.) I also saw a post where they said they used magnets to find out that their cast-iron peeler was not cast-iron, that it was light and flimsy. Mine attracts magnets, is neither light nor flimsy and if it comes apart I'll let you know in the future, but I don't think it will. I heard complaints about their machines peeling the apple too deeply, not sticking to the counter and had no instructions. After having read the instructions in the JAP I found out that my very, very sharp blade can be adjusted to a deep or fine cut. I also noticed that several people asked if they could peel potatoes and the answer was either no or I don't know. Well, you can not only peel potatoes with this but you can make shoestring potatoes. Now that's amazing! I guess the main reason I purchased this VICTORIO is when after hearing all these complaints I saw that, although this was around 25% more expensive than most of the peelers, there was a five-year guarantee and that did it for me! I just peeled six apples to make applesauce in my Instant Pot and it was slicker than grease on a door knob! I hope this comment helps. Good luck with your purchase!
It takes about 40 seconds to core, peel, and slice an apple.
Here is what I liked best:
-Solid construction, nicely machined, and well-finished
-Suction base sticks fiercely to my granite counter and doesn't come loose; if you have a smooth, non-porous surface to mount it on, this is so much better than the ones that clamp to the underside of the counter with a screw (and invariably wobble)
-Very clearly written instruction book (not some bad translation into English from another language)
-Reasonable price (I know there is another one on this site that looks about the same, and costs a few bucks less, but I thought this one had better overall reviews)
-Works with a wide variety of apple sizes, even ones that are pretty large; also adapts well to lopsided apples without messing up
-The hoop that does the coring does a really good job of keeping the apple centered, despite the shape of the apple. You just need to do your best to align the apple when mounting it on the tines, but the peeler is pretty forgiving even if the apple has a fair amount of wobble
-Once it starts cutting it doesn't miss any part of the peel on the bulk of the apple; it leaves only about 1/8" at the top and bottom where the apple is "flat"...and I just eat that
-The spiral cut slices are a great thickness for dehydrating, for freezing, and for making pies
I was concerned that the loop-shaped blade would "waste" more apple flesh than a straight blade, but the waste is trivial. In fact, in my experience with a straight-bladed model, the gouging on all the apples that weren't perfectly shaped did lead to a lot of waste. For my first batch, I processed about 50-60 apples of 5 different species, which ranged widely in size, symmetry, and firmness. The only one I had trouble with was one that wasn't a firm apple to start with and had been sitting out for a couple of weeks; it was so soft that the tines started to turn freely in the core before the whole apple was finished being peeled. If I would have processed it when it was fresh this wouldn't have been a problem.
I set mine up on the edge of the granite counter right next to the sink, and all the waste went right in: no more peels and apple juice making my floor sticky.
This is one of those kitchen gadgets that works well consistently, as opposed to those that work well 90% of the time, but are annoying and time consuming the other 10% of the time. In fact, this is actually fun to use and fast...and that's important when you are looking at dealing with bushels of apples.

Now I have peeled potatoes with very good results. Here is a little trick that I discovered. If you have an odd shaped potato or apple and for some reason at the beginning the blade wants to chew up the potato or apple, just lift the arm back a bit so it is not sinking into the apple/potato. Also if its like failing to remove some peeling in some parts just gently also push in the arm towards the apple/potato.
I would say it peels 95% of the apple/potato. Just at the core at both ends yo will see some peeling that you can easily touch up or just leave it on.
Overall, this works really well and shipping was super fast I might ad also.
