“Back to Basics” Apple Machine

The “Back to Basics” Apple Machine product is your typical machines for coring, peeling and slicing of apples.

This machine will also peel potatoes, but due the simple fact that potatoes are anything but round this tool is not very practical for such work, but it still does work.

Pro’s:  This machine has a suction cup base that can be attached to any smooth surface thus not having to clamp it to the side of a counter top.

Con’s: The only con is that without disassembling it you will have a “fun” time storing it, and since the product use might not be that high it will most likely get in the way most the year around unless you have a nice empty cabinet  for it.

    Hi John, in my experience it is better to buy an entire new unit as the effort in getting a part cost more than just buying the stock unit for about $15-$20.

    If you have one of the more expensive brands then usually the replacement parts are on amazon.com

    Good luck!

    Where can I get the attachment that enables me to peal and core only. I have the suction base one. Many times I donot want the apple sliced. model no. 1079055

      Correct me if I’m wrong but you have the Lehman’s unit and if I’m correct it is as simple as removing the blade and it will not slice at same time. I’d read the manual or the as someone at Lehman’s, they are usually very helpful.
      Good luck.
