"Greats little gadget - but"
24 September 2015
This works really well on nice round ripe apples, mine however are off the tree and so are not the neat uniform shape you find in the supermarket, it left quite a bit of peel on. It didn't handle crab apples at all well as they tend to be a bit small and firmer. It does get stuck and wont crank up if the apple is firm so I'm not sure how it will deal with a brambly, certainly I don't think it will handle a granny smith. I wouldn't write it off though. its fun to use and my granddaughter enjoyed peeling her own apples for the apple cake we were making.
