Video: Apple Peeling Shortcut

Just in time for Pesach, a YouTube video has gone viral which depicts a chef using an innovative technique to peel apples in under three seconds each. There is no word yet on whether this works for potatoes too.

Update: Looks like the general idea works with potatoes as well.

    How does he keep the apples from turning brown and thus becoming very unatractive and for many unedable. What a waste of good food. As for potatoes, they are impossible to do anything with them as they lack taste and are very unhealthy.

    Useing a drill with potatoes will be a bit of a problem. Since they aren’t always round like an apple.

    If the peeler blade touches the drill bit does when get electric shock?

  • 9. Potato peeling expert wrote:

    A apple has a core which makes it easier to stick the bit into but a potato is solid and sticking the flat bit into it will split the potato.
    Plus who want to find a shortcut when peeling keeps the kids busy and out of the way for a week.

    Hmnn, I wonder if this technique would work for an ultra-chassidic baldy haircut.

    Works great on grapes and tomatoes!
    Also works great on ‘spin drying’ the romaine lettuce!
    (Never thought of that one Huh kiddies?!)
    Helpful hint: Try to make sure that your mother in law is sitting down at the table when you do this.
    She’ll just say, “Nu? The nebach went mishiga!”

    He’s a professional chef. There are many people who H”Y cut themselves just chopping vegetables. It’s probably a terrible thing for anyone to try at home – chamura sakanta mei’isura.
