About this deal

As the leaves start turning and temperatures cool down, we often think about what cooler months promise for our tables—and our apples. This ergonomic Oxo set comes with three different style blades—a swivel, a julienne, and a serrated—so you'll have peelers year-round for every recipe.

It saves us a tremendous amount of kitchen time each fall and allows us to enjoy the apples that we freeze and dry all year long. There are plenty of multifunctional tools out there, which might be a good choice if your space is limited. Make some Apple Scrap Jelly or Homemade Apple Pectin or help the planet by making your own in-home compost bin. After lots of peeling of tough veggies and fruits, we didn't notice any decrease in the sharpness of the stainless steel blade, but three extra blades are included so you'll be set for a while. Lesley estimates that the gargantuan task of peeling apples for dehydrator testing would have taken her “easily five times longer” without this mighty little tool.The initial setup was probably a little less than five minutes, and the quick-start directions were very helpful. And though the rubber base has a lever to help it suction your countertop, it can be finicky and lose stickiness over time.

Fill a bowl with water that has added lemon juice or white vinegar at a ratio of 1 tablespoon to each cup of water, and drop apples in after peeling. We used the attachment to peel, slice, and spiralize apples for apple crisps, and found all the blades to be extremely sharp.If you make a lot of apple desserts—think pies, crumbles, or applesauce—this is a good tool to have around, especially because coring and slicing only takes the machine 30 seconds. You push the bottom of the apple onto the prongs of the rotary rod, move it flush against the peeler, and start cranking the wooden handle. If you're looking for a compact, modern device that's quick and easy to use, the PL8 Apple Peeler and Corer is a great choice.

The ProCook Apple Wizard is made from black enamelled heavy-duty stainless steel and features a non-slip suction cup on the base to keep it secure on your work surface. Our home tester also notes to be careful when pushing the corer through so as not to pierce your hand. It's also important that the handle is ergonomic, so you can peel apples for long periods of time without becoming uncomfortable. The beauty of this gadget is that you place a whole, clean apple on its mount and within seconds you have an “apple slinky” that needs one cut down the middle to create sliced of peeled apple. The peeler worked well for our apple crisps, but we did note that irregular shapes (like a sweet potato) can cause it to skip small sections of peel.Together, we're striving to make a positive impact on the environment and create a sustainable future. Whether it’s finding great products or discovering helpful advice, we’ll help you get it right (the first time). For my family, the hand-crank apple peeler’s presence has become just as synonymous with the holiday as the sour-cream apple pie we use it to make. The handle is of the traditional wooden dowel-shaped design and the parts are engineered to work hard and last a long time.

The full set does take up more room than a single peeler, but we appreciate that each has a blade guard to keep your fingers safe.Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places. Wetting the base a bit can help it stick too, a tip Lesley picked up somewhere along the way to dehydrating 126 pounds of apples. Since serrated blades are better for softer fruits and vegetables—think peaches, plums, and tomatoes—we used it on a soft Roma tomatoes before making a sauce.
