While it’s also possible to peel off an entire apple by poking a drill in the center, turning the drill on and using the standard vegetable peeler to do the peeling work, it’s just not the right way to do it. This is because as shown in the GIF image below it makes too much of a mess and a drill is probably not the best tool to be used with food for reasons that involve cleanliness and safeness.
Using a vegetable peeler alone to peel an apple, on the other hand, is not wrong but it wouldn’t be as quick and smooth as using an apple peeler.
This here is one of the many types of apple peeler but unlike most apple peelers it serves more function than just peeling an apple.
- It can peel an apple
- It can core and slice an apple without peeling it
- And it can peel, core and slice an apple all at the same time
However, like most things, there is a limitation to it. For this machine, the limitation is that it can’t only core an apple. This is because the coring and slicing blade is sort of a 2-in-1 kind of thing which makes it impossible to have one work without the other. So if you decide to core an apple with this, it will simultaneously slice it for you.
In other words, if somewhere down the road you know you’re going to be making baked apples but you couldn’t let go of the fact that this machine pack so much value for a reasonable price ($22-$24) but could let go of the fact that it can’t have an apple to be cored without slicing, you’re going to also need an apple corer.
