How to Peel an Apple

Paring Knife - The most common method for peeling an apple, but not the best, is to use a paring knife. With a paring knife you just run the blade of the knife under the skin, from top to bottom. Unfortunately, you run the risk of losing a lot of the apple's meat this way!

Potato Peeler - They're not just for carrots and potatoes anymore! A potato peeler also makes for a great apple peeler. Just peel the same way you would a potato, and voila! 

Apple Peeler Machine - This is the easiest way to peel an apple! Just place the apple in the machine and turn the handle until your apple is peeled. These machines are relatively inexpensive. Many of these machines function as an apple peeler/corer!
