As a child I spent countless hours with my mom in the kitchen. I remember watching her peel, slice and dice apples for her heavenly Apple Crisp. It took forever. Oh how I know she would have loved this “device” I tried today. I was sent the Starfrit Apple Pro Peeler for review, and I couldn’t help but think of mom as I set it up.
A little information about Starfrit’s Apple Pro Peeler, from their website:
Thanks to its simple mechanism, stainless blade, integrated spike holder and four suction-grip feet for utmost stability you can peel apples effortless and without a mess with the Starfrit® Apple Pro-Peeler. The Pro Apple peeler takes only the skin off – not the fruit. It comes with 2 spare blades and plastic protectors for the blades and spike holder as well as an instruction/recipe booklet. Also includes a combination apple slicer/corer to prepare apples for pies quickly and easily cutting. Push apples in to 6 sections and eject the core. Clean the Starfrit® Pro Apple Peeler with a wet soapy cloth. Both slicer and corer are dishwasher safe.
I was so happy how easy this was to set up. I had it up in running in about one minute, after taking it out of the box. It has handy little suction cups that easily adhere to the countertop. I put my apple on the spikes, turned the handle a few times, and just like that my apple peeled. There was a long strip of peel when I was done, and it was just that – peel. It didn’t chunk up the apple or remove any of the “good stuff”. It was effortless. I kept my mom in mind while I was using this, as she had arthritis in her fingers. This is definitely something that would have helped her immensely
I have seen similar products before, but they are all big and clunky, and I would have a hard time storing them. That is probably why I have never owned an apple peeler before, other than the little hand peelers. This is just the right size to store easily, and pull back out when I need to use it again.
I highly, highly recommend the Starfrit Pro Apple Peeler! If you do a lot of baking (and remember Fall is here – lots of baking to be done!) it is a must have. This is a great gift idea for that chef in your life too.
Starfrit has so many wonderful items…I am swept away with their selection of products. Erin at Snafood did a Starfrit 10″ Crepiere pan review and she is also giving one away!
