My Apple Peeler Corer Slicer

This is my best friend... well, during harvest season anyways...

It's the Apple Peeler Corer Slicer.  I just finished up canning applesauce, cranberry applesauce, and apple butter and did it in a fraction of the time because of this little handy gadget.  

Although it's uses are limited (often time to apples and potatoes), if you're a canner, this tool is for you.  It peels, slices and cores your apples all at the same time.  You just attach the tool to a table and push the apple onto the center bar.  Then crank the handle and it does all the work for you.  You can adjust the thickness of the slices as well with an additional attachment.

I love this thing.  Although I only use it for a few things, it was definately worth the money.  My mom and I have both used it for several years and it's still in excellent shape.

I've always wanted one of those! I was afraid they were gimmicky, you know like Salad Shooters? LOL. I'll keep my eyes peeled (sorry, couldn't help myself) for one now. Blessings, Whitney

I used mine for the first time in a while last weekend. We finally moved into a house that has enough space in the kitchen for me to move this gadget out of permanent storage - yay! The only problem was the peeler part didn't seem to be operating at 100%. Do you do any type of maintenance to keep it working properly?

I'm wondering if the apples were simply too big, or maybe it was user error (which is entirely possible!) :-) I do love that I can use this again and anticipate making lots of apple crisp this season!
