Before I write my review of this let me say that I have owned 2 of these apple peeler/corer/slices before this one. I been using them for years and I'm well acquainted as to how they should work and how adjustments should be made. I would have chosen give this this product NO STARS if it was possible. Here's my review.
This is so cheaply made that the list of what is wrong with it is long. 1. There is only one rubber foot on the bottom, this does not provide protection to the counter top on the end closest to the clamp. The metal of the peeler rests directly on your counter top at the handle end of the peeler 2. Because there is only one rubber foot there is not stabilization of the peeler and there is to much vibration in the entire peeler when using the handle. it is impossible to get it tight enough to limit the amount of vibration because of the difference in height between the one rubber foot and the end without it. 3. It gouges the apple when peeling and no amount of adjustment to the peeler helps on either the peeler blade itself or the arm of the peeler with the spring. 4. It does not core the apple completely. I had half of the apples I did stop half way through the slicing/coring process and could not get the apple the rest of the way through causing more work in having to try and salvage the remaining apple. 5. The apple slices were inconsistent in thickness from beginning to the end of one apple on the ones I was able to get to peel/slice/core. Some slices were excessively thick, others were paper thin and disintegrated completely when handled regardless of care in handling them. This caused portions of the finished product to be under cooked in spots and over cooked in other spots.
If you have never owned of these previously you would have nothing to compare it to and may think that this is how they work. Not so! Do not waste your money on this product. I will be contacting Amazon to arrange a refund. I am so disgusted with the poor quality that I do not want a replacement for it but a full refund instead.

Not as well made as their old products.2015年11月17日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I've had a Norpro Apple Mate 1 for close to 20 years. It's had hard use during that time as we have 4 dwarf apple trees that produce more apples than we can use. As a result, I make tons of applesauce and put it in the freezer and give it away all through the holidays. That little Apple Mate 1 is a great workhorse for processing 30 apples at a crack. This year one of the 3 prongs on the fork part broke off so I went looking for a replacement. I did find an Apple Mate 3 but it didn't work as well. So I was ecstatic when I found the Apple Mate 1 at Amazon. However, the new Apple Mate 1 is smaller and lighter than my old one and in my opinion doesn't quite measure up. For some reason it wouldn't consistently peel the apples. We tried re-seating the blade and it works sporadically. The swivel on the blade arm doesn't have the range of rotation as my old one. I noticed that Norpro didn't even stamp their name on this product like they did with the old one. Anyway, we were able to replace the broken prong arm shaft on my old one with the new one so my old Apple Mate 1 is back in business. I am keeping the new one and will use it for parts for my old one. That's why only 3 stars.
Substandard product2019年11月2日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Wish I would have read more reviews before purchasing this particular product manufacturer. The peeler is smaller than other versions and doesn't peel evenly. The corer metal is flimsy and bends while using. One has to use the product to determine if it's good, so I don't know if I can return it, or not. If not, I'll sell in a garage sale for $1.00 (if I can get that much). This style of a peeler/corer/slicer is better than the suction models, so find something similar and stay away from this manufacturer.

I purchased this for a friend who mentioned how difficult it's been for her to peel and core apples lately. She does pies and applesauce. Haven't heard from her yet but I've had one for years and it works wonderfully once you get the hang of it. Cleans with clear running water and air dries. Adjusting the peeler can be a bit tricky so you don't demolish the apple. I've found firmer apples to work best i.e. Granny Smith, honey crisp. Softer apples work you just lose more pulp. I prefer how it sits almost anywhere on my counter as opposed to the clamp kind which requires a squared edge countertop. Never had a problem with the suction cup though you don't want water to get under the rubber bottom as it would probably rust. Would definitely recommend this item!
Works good2020年2月14日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
It clamps to the counter which is much better than suction! I had a suction and it never stayed put! I did apples! Because my grandkids love apple pie! And I hate peeling apples!
