Topic: In The Kitchen
I really love the dehydrated apples slices I've been making but often delayed making them because I dreaded all the peeling, coring and slicing it takes. To the rescue, a chance encounter with an awesome kitchen gadget. At slightly less than $20 I was enthralled.
Simply push the base of the apple onto the 4 prongs:
Start cranking the handle and your apple is peeled, cored and spiral sliced all in one step. One apple takes about 15 seconds.
The entire apple can be slid off the core in one stack:
I then quarter the stack:
And drop the pieces into cool water with a little lemon juice in it:
My dehydrator holds two apples per tray:
The most time consuming part of the process is now laying out the slices on the trays. Tomorrow I will have a brand new batch of dehydrated apples to munch.I used it to peel potatoes for a salad the other day, also. It will peel only, peel and slice and core, core and slice. No peel and slice without coring as the corer and slicer are one unit.
This tool was definitly worth the price!
