Fabulous Fun For Gadget Lovers.
on 11 May 2013
I first saw this gadget on TV with Stephen Fry on his show the top 100 gadgets.
I was hooked and got one straight away.
I always prefer to eat an apple with the aid of a knife. A slice at a time always seems to taste better. This is the next best thing.
As a gadget loving male this is the equivalent to catnip or 'crack cocaine'.
It is one of those fabulous little machines that you love to play with.
You bung the apple or similar on the end and turn.
You need to experiment to get the perfect 'shave' of the apple but when you have the correct settings it peels the apple effectively once you.
The great think is that it slices the apple in one continues spiral (or should that be helix?)
You are left with a cylinder shape core.
Please chuck these out for the birds. Birds love them, especially Blackbirds which cannot get enough of windfalls. The big bonus is the birds will get the slugs as well!
The action of the machine always puts a smile on my face and I never get tired of using it. I know this sounds sad but hey a little time to play each day really is a stress buster.
You need to ensure to clean the machine which seems a drag if you peel just one apple and you have to take care with the blade which seems to be one of the sharpest I've ever encountered but it's really worth it.
We have a couple of apple trees and come chutney making time this is an enjoyable chore for me.
It's a heck of lot quicker than hand peeling.
Put simply if you have a relative that loves gadgets then this is THE machine for them.
Hours of fun and ensures your five a day is sated!
