From Goodwill, apple peeler/corer/slicer circa 1890
This is one clever kitchen tool. It's an apple peeler, slicer and corer all in one. Jacki, my sister-in-law borrowed this from her daughter so we could quickly make apple crisp today for the big post-Thanksgiving party. What a hoot. First, you turn a crank to suction the corer/slicer/peeler onto the counter. Then you pierce the apple on the stem end and start cranking the big handle on the other end. One little mechanism peels, one cores and one cuts! Fabulous! It'll make short time of our apple prepping for the crisp this morning. Who knew such a gadget had been around for 100 years!
