About The Product
If you and your family enjoy apples but are put off by having to peel, core or slice them - the Paderno Apple Peeler Corer Slicer with Suction Base # 49836-00 was invented just for you. Just attach the apple to the prongs, turn the handle and your apple is peeled, neatly sliced and efficiently cored in 10 seconds. What better way is there to encourage you to enjoy an apple a day?
• Strong suction base
• 2 shafts for different thickness
• Peel, core and slice
• Carbon steel blades
• Slice and core without peeling
The Paderno Apple Preparer has a strong robust body of aluminium with carbon steel blades and two nickel-plated stainless steel shafts, one 2mm and one 4mm for different thicknesses. This is much better quality than the cheap versions you see around. Fitted with an easy-release, suction base, which holds it firmly and safely on the work surface. Suction bases are only suitable for very smooth work surfaces. If you do not have a smooth work surface, just purchase a large smooth tile from a tile shop.
The apple, either an eating apple or cooking apple, is attached to the prongs and the handle slowly rotated. As the handle is turned, the peeling cutter removes a thin sliver of peel whilst the slicing blade automatically slices the apple into an attractive apple spiral. As the apple passes through the coring ring, the core is left behind attached to the prongs.
It can be used for preparing apples for use in apple pies, chunky style apple sauce and for freezing or dehydrating. A Tarte-tatin made using whole spirals of apples, rather than apple segments is very unusual. The Apple Preparer can also be adjusted for slicing and coring without peeling. This is particularly useful if you are making a fresh fruit salad from attractive dessert apples, where the skin is left on.
With the Paderno Apple Peeler Corer Slicer it is also possible to peel without coring and slicing - great if you want to do baked apples and the skins are badly blemished. Potatoes can also be peeled, provided they are reasonably even in shape. It also works on Pears, possibly many other fruits and vegetables can be peeled. Spare slicing and peeling blades are available from Juiceland.
