Apple-peeling gadget de-skins fruit so you don’t have to

片手で林檎を支えながら、もう一方の手で突き出しロッドを押す

Check out this new gadget just for peeling fruit. You stick the core of the fruit into the metal tongs at center, and then by pushing and rotating the red plastic button and crank, you move the surface of the fruit along the adjustable blade. Useless or awesome? I’m gonna vote for useless — I actually enjoy peeling fruit with a knife, and besides, there really is on reason why you ever have to peel an apple. The skin is good for you!

  1. Yeah, I have an antique one..made in 1898! And actually, if the one above doesn’t also core and slice in addition to peeling, it’s LESS advanced than my 1898 one! 😉

  2. I got one also that peels, slices and cores.
    But what you got to know is that nowadays apples, unless they are organic, receive over 55 different chemicals during growth. The skin on your average apple is harmful, not good.
