No assembly required. Very easy to use. It literally took about 10 seconds for this thing to peel an average sized Granny Smith apple! It takes just the thin skin off, no gouges or otherwise. It stuck to the counter and turning the handle was not cumbersome or hard. I can go back to eat multiple apples a day and with less work than a regular peeler! Would definitely recommend this!
I love it! With kids in the house we cut a lot of apples, and this makes it so simple. I can honestly do it with one hand, while I hold a baby! Can use for apples, potatoes, zucchini, squash, kiwi, peaches, limes, oranges, we use it for so many things. Although apples are almost daily around here. I rate this 5 stars and highly recommend the fruit peeler to everyone! Thank you for a great product!
I am a grandmother with a very large family and terrible arthritis. Hand peeling apples or potatoes meant many hours of hand and wrist pain as I struggled to hold on to a hand peeler. I would have to start in the morning peeling only one or two potatoes, take a break, come back to it, you get the idea. This has been the absolute best!! Now five pounds of potatoes takes about 20 minutes. There is no strain to my hand or wrist and absolutely NO pain! I wish I had found this years ago.
It's freaking awesome. I really find it useful for peeling apples, of course, but also for peeling potatoes and some other root vegetables. I give it a 5 star rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ because it does what it's advertised to do very well. It works flawlessly, simple to keep clean.
I purchased this product for my dad so that he could make a pie more easily than with his hands which have arthritis. He said it was very helpful to him, and really helped the comfort of his hands so he could make pie.
I have a peeler / slicer, but I needed something that would just peel the apples. This little gadget is amazing - push the pins into the bottom of the apple, start turning the crank, and the apples are peeled in seconds. Push the button and the apple is pushed off the pins and easier to remove. You're left with a perfectly peeled apple and one long peel that doesn't cut too far into the apple.
This is one of the best things I bought for the kitchen! I have problems with my hands so peeling can sometimes be gruesome. I've tried this and loved it! It peels potatoes and fruits so EASILY. It literally takes like 5 seconds. Whomever, made this is a genius.
I've been making apple pies lately using the traditional peeler and stand mixer. I was really not at all happy with the thickness of the peel - I was losing a ton of fruit and I am just not okay with that. So I thought I'd see if the non-motorized peelers were better - and then I ran across this little gem. I was impressed by the photos of the peel coming off - there was hardly any apple meat. It cuts a wider peel than the more usual sort of metal peelers - so it is FAST.
I love Fairdales but never leave reviews. BUT... I Love this little gadget. Our farm has an apple tree that produces very small apples and peeling them was a pain. This little gadget is awesome!! It contours to these little apples and takes little to no meat while peeling the skins. The suction cups worked well on the tabletop so no issues there. I peeled half a 5 gallon bucket of small green apples in an hour by myself. I plan on using it for pears as well. Buy it!
This peeler was AWESOME to use! So easy!!! Peeled my first apple in seconds! Directions were easy to understand. Suction cups worked very well. It looks like it would handle a wide variety of sizes of apples - mine were pretty much medium but the swing of the blade would clearly accommodate larger fruit.
My husband and I love apples, when it is apple season we think of nothing to go through a bushel of apples. Of course I buy a peck or and peck and half at time. I make anywhere from 5 to 8 apples pies on a given day. What I life saver this item is. Easy to use, works very well on any size of apples. It saves my husband from having to peel while I prepare the crust. Highly recommend.
This thing works like a dream! My wife has arthritis, but loves peeled apples. This little device solves those issues beautifully! It works within seconds.
This product did everything I wanted it to. I had a full case of large apples to peel for applesauce. This item worked beautifully. No problems. Peeled my apples so quickly and nicely. This item was above and beyond what I expected.
Love it! Peels so perfectly and easy to use. The apple slicer is awesome and works great! My son (25mo old) loves apples and he loves helping to cut them up now too! Suction power is super strong.
