To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
ORIGINAL REVIEW: "Horrible non-existence suction. Don’t recommend this product. In fact, I returned it and went back to using my old one."
UPDATE: I was contacted by the seller, less than 24 hours after I posted this review. I was impressed with their generosity and kindness of heart, as well as their sincere care. I got the impression they are committed to the buyers and I was also informed I most likely received a defective product - which I believe. I don't usually encounter this degree of professionalism anymore, and their multiple messages restored my faith in well run, family owned businesses. I will be receiving a replacement product in the next week or so, and look forward to bumping my review to a full 5 stars when the product function matches their impeccable customer service. Well done to the sellers!
LATEST UPDATE: Received the replacement product in very short time, it works perfectly, which confirms the seller’s belief that I originally received a defective one. The new one works like a charm, sturdy and functional. I must say, as happy as I am with the product, I am especially happy with the commitment of this company and their genuine interest in the satisfaction of their costumers, for that I would give them 10 stars!
The 'metal' handle was busted. Either damaged in shipping or sent broken. Impossible to use due to the necessity of said handle. Will require a replacement. (not sure why the handle is being sent pre-attached to the unit, as it can easily be removed)
We purchased the Spiralizer from Amazon a couple weeks ago. I wanted to replace our broken electric apple peeler which was really a bit of a disappointment.
I was looking for the "old fashioned" type of bar mounted or heavy peelers when my search pulled up the Spiralizer. It has decent to good reviews on Amazon, was an attrative red color, and was really cheap (that concerned me). So I bought it.
It's freaking awesome.
It works flawlessly, simple to keep clean. And Because I didn't read I only thought it peeled my apples......
Oh but SO MUCH MORE. It peels, cores, and cuts into a connected spiral (Hello, the name, right?)
But, it does this so perfectly! Apples, pears, potatoes (without tons of eyes of course). It's just phenomenal.
Sometimes it's the little things that make you smile. Count this as one of those for us. Five stars.
It's apple season... and my hands are tired from peeling apples with a paring knife!!! So, I ordered this product because my friend had one and raved about it! It arrived quickly and I continued peeling, coring & slicing apples in RECORD TIME! Wanted to put some in the freezer as well as make a couple of apple pies before family arrived. A couple of items... first, I was concerned about the suction -- DON'T BE -- it works so well on my granite for almost the entire process! The second item -- SCREWS! Again -- DON'T BE -- following the instructions was easy and not a worry at all. I especially liked this vendor's followup to ensure that I am happy with the Peeler with email and link. I highly recommend this product if you are in the market for a great apple peeler-corer- slicer! Now I'm going to try it on potatoes!
This is really easy to use and assemble or disassemble. It really only works for apples though. I tried pretty firm pears and potatoes, but it didn’t peel them very well since they aren’t perfectly round. It also left some places peeled on the apples even when it seemed to hit the knife in that spot. I think it would work better if the knife was in more to begin with. I used it mostly for canning applesauce from the apples off our tree. It was hard to use for the small and misshapen ones but I would expect that. Overall it is made really well and study and attaches to the counter easily and stays there. Just wish the peeler knife was closer in to catch all the skin.
I had a different peeler that just peeled apples that was pretty neat but it didn't also core and slice the apples. When I accidentally broke it I was sad but I like this one better now that I replaced the old one with it. It takes like 8 seconds once you get the apple set on the skewers. I haven't used this on anything besides apples but it should work with some pears and potatoes. It seems you can remove the part that cores and slices if you just want to peel the item.
Update: The suction cup is held in place by a metal thing and apparently mine must of got wet and rusted and it broke making the suction cup come off and it was not possible to repair it. It can be used without the suction cup but it's pretty tough to hold it in place. So for the durability issue I am taking off a couple stars. I would recommend if you by this try to make sure it doesn't get wet under the suction cup at the bottom.
I purchased this apple peeler on Amazon.om after reviewing all the other options and the item's reviews both positive and negative. I wanted a peeler that would reduce the amount of time it took me to prepare fruits for my new Harvest Right Freeze Dryer….the peeler arrived this morning just in time for my first attempt in freeze drying both pears and apples…it’s important to note that I’m rather hard to please and a bit of a skeptic when it comes to these types of instruments but I was amazed off my feet as to the shear genius of whoever came up with contraption…it worked beyond amazing. There is a few tricky handling issues, but they are over once one gets the hang of it! I'm very impressed with the quality of build and the simplicity of process peeling, coring, and slicing all at the same time! Cheers douglas
I love it! It's exactly what I wanted and bought it for myself as an early Christmas gift. I didn't know exactly how to use it but there are youtube videos showing exactly how to use it safely and effectively. It's awesome!! I can now peel veggies and fruits in 3 seconds flat - AND CORE THEM TOO. I love it! The suction cup is really sturdy and helpful. It will become a permanent fixture in our kitchen. Thank you!
Circumstances created in my household nearly 2 years made it necessary for me to learn how to cook - or starve, and frozen dinners were no longer a gustatorially-satisfying option. A wonderful lady I met recently stated making me low calorie apple crisp and apple pie deserts (substituting Truvia for sugar). While the deserts were certainly tasty, the laborious nature of cutting, peeling and coring apples by hand made it almost no longer worthwhile. I purchased a Brand-X electric peeler from Amazon and discovered that's exactly what it did - peeled apples. Period. It was still necessary to cut and core the apples. Unit returned. My search continued until I discovered this gem of an appliance. Not only did it peel cut and core the apples within seconds, but it was actually fun! Lo-cal apple recipes are now a staple of my desert menu thanks to this apple peeler/corer/slicer.
Looking forward to many years of use - a product that truly lives up to its name!
