Follow Me on Pinterest As fall settles in I share a review of one of my favorite fall kitchen gadgets: The Apple Peeler Corer Slicer by Progressive International. We love this gadget. It saves us a tremendous amount of kitchen time each fall and allows us to enjoy the apples that we freeze and dry all year long.

Apple Peeler Corer Slicer: How Does It Work?

The Apple Peeler Corer Slicer is a small gadget that can be stored in your pantry and brought out during apple season. It is clamped to your counter top easily with the use of a screwdriver to tighten it. (Watch the video at the bottom on tips.)

How Quickly Can You Process Apple with a Peeler, Corer, Slicer?

The beauty of this gadget is that you place a whole, clean apple on its mount and within seconds you have an “apple slinky” that needs one cut down the middle to create sliced of peeled apple. The “apple slinky” is our affectionate name for a peeled apple with spiral slices. The whole apples is still one but has a “slinky” appearance. Simply cut down the center for your slices. You can see the action at work in our close up video of the gadget.

You can create a powerful amount of apple slices with this gadget. In about one minute in our review video we created about 2 cups of peeled apple slices. Imagine focusing on the task instead of talking in a video and you will see that you can process a whole lot of apples quickly.

Apple Peeler Corer Slicer Review: Are The Slices Too Thin?

Follow Me on Pinterest This gadget creates slices that are great for pies and dried apples. They are very thin which will reduce the cooking time and drying time. You will also have cooked apple treats with consistent slices that cook evenly, a benefit that is hard to achieve by hand.

The slices are a bit thin for snack and finger food. This gadget is more suitable for large apple processing projects.

Tips for Using the Apple Peeler, Corer, Slicer

In this video, I recommend keeping a screwdriver on hand to tighten the mount on the gadget. The key negative review of this gadget on Amazon is that consumers cannot keep it tightened. It wiggles and slows down the apple processing. A screwdriver is the key to a good experience.

In addition, very small apples will not peel well because the core tends to get caught on the gadget. Keep in mind these were very small apples that caused a problem. Most apples you find will work well with this gadget.

Where to Buy an Apple Peeler, Corer, Slicer?

This gadget is priced typically under $20 for the budget-conscious consumer and will save hours of food processing every fall. We recommend that you buy it today to begin saving those hours in the kitchen. You can find one in a local kitchen gadget store or simply buy an apple peeler corer right now online. (This is our recommended apple peeler corer.)

Enjoy your mountain of apples!

  1. Thank you for the information! I have been wanting to buy an apple peeler, etc but did not know which is the best and did not want to have “another” kitchen gadget. I have been making my own babyfood and apple season = lots of applesauce, etc.

    Thank You Again

    I have one, love it. However, it does not work for knarly apples. The apples must be nice and round.

    Pampered Chef has one and they also have a block of wood you can clamp it to instead of the counter. I like that better. Apples do need to be free of bruises. This works for peeling potatoes too!!

  6. I have been using my Apple Peeler, corer, slicer all week, I love how much time it saves, and it is fun to use, my older children get a kick out of using it too! ~April

  7. I have been using one of these for years! In fact I am already on my 3rd one. I make dried apples with a little cinnamon and sugar for Christmas and they definitely make the job a lot easier. I love the “Apple Slinky” name. I’m definitely going to borrow that, so much easier than saying apple peeler, corer, slicer machine!

    I have one that suctions to the counter instead of clamping. It never moves and works great on even the smallest apples. The brand is Kitchen Collection but I got it used so don’t know where you could get it retail.

  9. I have one of these and it sure makes peeling apples easier. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday. Hope you are having a great week and come back soon!

  13. This is cute, an apple peeler, corer and slicer topic which of course seems nonsense for many but the information is way not ordinary anyway.
