Must-Have Kitchen Gadgets – Apple Peeler, Corer, Slicer

Every kitchen has a set of indespensible gadgets. An apple peeler, corer, slicer is one of those such gadgets. Normally, I abide by Alton Brown’s mantra of no uni-taskers. While you won’t find a cherry pitter, avocado slicer, or a specific plate for eggs in my kitchen, you will find a garlic press and this apple peeler, corer, slicer (I’m going to call it a PCS from now on).

The first time I showed this contraption to Hubby, he thought it should go in a pile for Goodwill. We were going through kitchen items when we downsized to move into our tiny Boston kitchen. He had never seen a PCS and joked that it looked like a medieval torture device. I have to agree, it does look somewhat intimidating… I convinced him to let me keep it and promised to show him how awesome it was when the fall rolled around.

Soon enough, it was time to start thinking about apple goodies and I whipped out the PCS to show Hubby the wonder of this gadget. He was hooked instantly! Even to this day, Hubby likes to peel, core, and slice apples for various recipes for me using this contraption. It literally takes about 20 seconds to process an apple through the device.

If you don’t have one, I highly recommend getting one! I stole inherited mine from my mom when I moved out of the house. You can find them relatively cheap on Amazon as well. I have heard that the ones that suction to the counter aren’t so great. Mine has a clamp so you attach it to the side of your counter. It works really well.
