I have long wanted one of these apple peeler/corer/slicer machines and earlier in the week I hit 'Buy Now' and eagerly tracked the progress on-line as my purchase moved through the courier system from Christchurch. This has to be the most brilliant invention ever. It looks great and it works way better than I had hoped. I have a penchant for pork (free-range 'Freedom Farms') but find the accompanying stewed apple tedious to prepare. This brilliant machine has it all done in under 30 seconds. Look at the tidy core, the spiral of peel and the perfection of the slicing - this is more than a kitchen gadget, it is a work of art.
