Best Apple Peeler

Nothing better than a freshly baked apple pie or even homemade apple sauce. The first step in creating these tried and true American favorites is peeling the apples. This can be a tedious and tiresome task when the apple count is more than one or two. Standard potato peelers don't always do the job, it's better to have a truly well made apple peeler. My five favorite picks needed to be either hand-cranked, handheld or electric, easy to clean and under $50. Don't keep struggling with pairing knives that aren't doing the job fast enough. Check out my list and get ready to peel the easy way.

Back To Basics Apple and Potato Peeler

This truly a classic tool for peeling apples. The Back To Basics Apple and Potato Peeler makes peeling, coring and slices apples hassle free. The enameled cast iron construction makes it sturdy and long lasting. All you have to do is make sure that the peeler is securely attached to your counter top. It has a suction which keeps it steady while in use. Attach the apple to the open end and crank the handle. This peeler will quickly do it all and leave you with an apple ready for eating fresh or cooking. Hand wash to clean and towel dry. To maintain optimal function, oiling the rod occasionally is suggested.

Euro Cuisine EP200 Electric Peeler

This is a truly unique, hand help electric peeler. The Euro Cuisine Prep Machine EP200 comes with a number of different attachments to clean, mix and blend liquids. However, this made my list because of what it does as an apple peeler. Not everyone has the space nor the patience to break out the big machine when you want to peel apples. This is a great buy because it's perfect for single apple use and can peel more just as quickly. The peels store inside and can be emptied afterwards. It comes with a rechargeable battery and easy to clean and store.

Oxo Good Grips i-Series Y Peeler

This is definitely a hand held peeler that can do the job that a standard peeler can not. The OXO Pro Y Peeler is a great tool for peeling apples or any other fruit or veggie. Great for thick or thin skin, this peeler is easy to use. The unique "Y" peeler attachment has been constructed to help remove blemishes from fruits or veggies. The non-slip grip ensures safe peeling. I like this peeler for apples because it is not big and bulky like the counter top variety. It may not be as fast as the standing type, but it works well. Easy clean up with soap and water.

The Pampered Chef Apple Peeler/Corer/Slicer

This stainless steel apple peeler is durable, heavy weight and a great way to peel lots of apples in a little amount of time. The Pampered Chef brand has been creating kitchen tools to make things easier for home cooks for years. The Apple Peeler/Corer/Slicer is no different. This machine easily attaches to the edge of your counter and maintains perfect stability during use. The all in one motion will peel, slice and core your apple to perfection. If you don't have a counter that supports attachments, you can also buy the counter top stand. It is a superior quality product that can do the job well. Hand washing is preferred.

Starfrit New Apple Peeler

Starfrit New Apple Peeler

I love this cute, light weight answer to the need for a less intimidating apple peeler machine. It is smaller than the standard machine, but make no mistake. It works wonderfully. The Starfrit New Apple Peeler comes with two stainless steel blades, a corer slicer along with a booklet offering instructions and fun recipes. It also boasts a wedge cutter and an ejector arm which helps remove the apple. It can easily adapt to various shapes of apples as well. This is also a hand crank machine. The suction feet at the bottom provide stability. Hand washing with soap and water is recommended.
