Fall Festival - Starfrit Apple Pro Peeler Review and Giveaway!



fallfestival


Today's Fall Festival feature on Snafood:
Divvies Review and Giveaway

Today on The Speedy Gourmet:
Starfrit Apple Pro Peeler Review and Giveaway!

starfrit apple peeler pro giveaway


As a child I spent countless hours with my mom in the kitchen.  I remember watching her peel, slice and dice apples for her heavenly Apple Crisp.  It took forever. Oh how I know she would have loved this "device" I tried today.  I was sent the Starfrit Apple Pro Peeler for review, and I couldn't help but think of mom as I set it up.

A little information about Starfrit's Apple Pro Peeler, from their website:

Thanks to its simple mechanism, stainless blade, integrated spike holder and four suction-grip feet for utmost stability you can peel apples effortless and without a mess with the Starfrit® Apple Pro-Peeler. The Pro Apple peeler takes only the skin off - not the fruit. It comes with 2 spare blades and plastic protectors for the blades and spike holder as well as an instruction/recipe booklet. Also includes a combination apple slicer/corer to prepare apples for pies quickly and easily cutting. Push apples in to 6 sections and eject the core. Clean the Starfrit® Pro Apple Peeler with a wet soapy cloth. Both slicer and corer are dishwasher safe.

I was so happy how easy this was to set up.  I had it up in running in about one minute, after taking it out of the box.  It has handy little suction cups that easily adhere to the countertop.  I put my apple on the spikes, turned the handle a few times, and just like that my apple peeled.  There was a long strip of peel when I was done, and it was just that - peel.  It didn't chunk up the apple or remove any of the "good stuff".  It was effortless.  I kept my mom in mind while I was using this, as she had arthritis in her fingers. This is definitely something that would have helped her immensely

I have seen similar products before, but they are all big and clunky, and I would have a hard time storing them.  That is probably why I have never owned an apple peeler before, other than the little hand peelers.  This is just the right size to store easily, and pull back out when I need to use it again.

I highly, highly recommend the Starfrit Pro Apple Peeler!  If you do a lot of baking (and remember Fall is here - lots of baking to be done!) it is a must have.  This is a great gift idea for that chef in your life too.

Starfrit has so many wonderful items...I am swept away with their selection of products.  Erin at Snafood did a Starfrit 10" Crepiere pan review and she is also giving one away!
