This is a little gem. After spending many hours peeling, coring and slicing a plentiful harvest of apples this year I decided enough was enough and searched the web for a gadget to help me out. This is it!! If you have an apple tree in your garden this will be your new best friend. I believe you can also use it with potatoes and that it produces excellent curly fries, I haven't tried it myself but once the apples are finished (yes they are still being prepared for freezing) I will definitely give it a go.
