Apple Corer

  • 7

Anyone know where I can get an apple corer? One of those old-fashioned things that you put an apple on and then turn the crank and it peels the skin off an apple.

  1. That's not a corer, it's a parer. Or look for a peeler.

    1. I bought mine at the kitchen store on Avenue just south of Davenport on the west hand side of Avenue. I'm sorry I can't remember the name of the store but it's nestled in between all of the flower stores. This was a few years back, worth finding the name and calling them to see if they still carry them. Otherwise maybe try IQ living on the Danforth, they carry everything!

      1. I found a Starfrit branded apple peeker at Zellers.

        1. Both Home Hardware and Lee Valley have apple peeler/corers.

          1. Benriner makes a nice one. Maybe Tap Phong on Spadina?

            1. Sorry - yes an apple peeler is what I wanted. I forgot all about Lee Valley (and it's one of my favourite stores), but the Bed, Bath & Beyond one looks like the exact same one and 25% less expensive.

              Thanks for all of the responses!

              1. Just saw them at St Lawrence Market kitchen supplies store. Eye high, at the end of the aisle near the cash.
