If you’ve never seen one of these machines before, you may wonder what this is. What you are looking at is a work of sheer simplicity and genius.
What do you do with it? Well, first you start by making sure the suction base doesn’t move around. Then slide the handle all the way to the right. Center an apple on the prongs. Here we have a beautiful, ripe Cortland.
Then you turn the crank, and the apple gets peeled. So fast. So effortless. I don’t know how I lived without it. Especially with a little one who absolutely must have her apples peeled.
But that’s not all. You get the apple peeled, cored, and sliced. That’s right. It does all three. That’s why this thing is called Pomme Magique.
With this handy dandy device, it’s easier than ever for us to enjoy one of our favorite local fruits and bake them into muffins and crumbles and other desserts.
The great thing is, not only does it work for apples of all shapes and sizes, but it’s so fun for Sonya to play with the apple spring while she snacks.
Since I bought this machine, Sonya definitely gets an apple a day to keep the doctor away— savored one ring at a time.
Want one for your kitchen? Montrealers, there’s an apple peeler/slicer/corer sale at Stokes right now. Or you can get one online here. Life-changing. So many zen moments turning that crank, watching the peel come off in one continuous spiral, and enjoying the sweet, crisp, cleanly cut aftermath.
