"Peel the Bramleys first."
06 August 2014
We had identical experiences to other reviewers with Bramleys. After several frustrating attempts I was about to return it when I had one last try after peeling the apples first. It then cored and sliced very well and was still less of a fiddle than coring and slicing by hand. It makes processing easier so it will continue to be used. I cannot remove the peeling arm but at least I can remove the blade for safety. One improvement to the design would be to put some pins or some such to precisely relocate the coring/slicing plate - once it gets loose it's very difficult to realign.
