The Thompson Apple Parer / Corer / SectionerThe Thompson Apple Parer / Corer / Sectioner  The Thompson may not be the rarest of peelers, but it is certainly one of the most graphic and highly sought after.  I attempted to make these look common a few years ago by buying, selling, or trading off 5 of them over a two year span.  It was an amazing string of coincidences with a large amount of luck mixed in.  I actually got two of them in one day.  I drove 8 hours to get one and then traded it for a sewing machine the same day.   Most patented apple peelers worked with gears and cranks and various designed cutters and knives, but with this one you lift the arm on the geared arch, load it up, and then swing the arm down to quickly peel the apple and at the bottom the cutter sections and cores it for you. Quick, fast and no fuss, and just a little muss.  A neat piece!

Buchi Apple ParerBuchi Apple Parer  This is a hard to find patented apple parer.  It is much heavier duty than many of those you see.   There is no rust and no pitting.  A nice one!   In operation, when the crank is turned table rotates a full circle and then the kickoff is activated and kicks the apple into the waiting bucket.

Good + . . . . .$395.00       SOLD!



75 Saratoga Potato Chip Slicer.75 Saratoga Potato Chip Slicer   The Saratoga Chip is world famous.  Google has entry after entry related to a search for that, and those links talk a lot about George Clum the Indian who supposedly first invented the potato chip in the 1850's in Saratoga Springs NY.  Information about this .75 potato slicing device was a bit more elusive and hard to find.  The patent was issued on June 18th 1887.  The info cast onto the frame says it was made in New Britain CT.  The best info is that it was .75 and sold by agents.  I wonder if the original Indian inventor, George Clum was getting any sort of a kickback?.

To use, simply load a potato or other suitable vegetable onto the rotating arm, and go. I have heard that this is going to be the next "thing" after the craze for kettle corn finally fades in to the haze of rancid smelling burned oil with sugar mixed in.   Let them eat chips. 

Fine . . . . .$100.00        SOLD!!



antique apple peeler2 Sinclair Scott Apple / Peach Parer  The Sinclair Scott may not be the rarest parer to be found, but it is certainly one of the prettiest, with great looking hearts cast into the wheel.  The design of the fork and the blades were made to work for peaches, which must have been a pretty messy job.  Buy it to use if you want to make the pie-making chore easier on yourself and don't want one of those new overpriced ones you see advertised for sale in the fancy-dancy kitchenware catalogs.

Lathe Type Patented Potato ParerLathe Type Patented Potato Parer I have heard that this is the new thing at fairs and shows in the Midwest.  Potato ribbons.  I can imagine a better deal, better for you, and better tasting than kettle corn.  It has features and performs much like standard lathe type apple peelers with a slightly different head.

Reading Hardware Apple Parer Mfg. By Harbister Bros.  This is one of the first parers that was produced and distributed by the Reading Hardware Co.  The history of this company is described in great detail in Don Thornton's comprehensive new book called Apple Parers.  The unique and unusual feature with this parer is the double turntable, and return feature of this mechanism.  Every aspect of this example is proper including the fragile kickoff, the paring arm, and all of the castings.  There is no rust and no pitting.  A nice one!   In operation, when the crank is turned table rotates, first in one direction, and then reverses to go in the other, all the while peeling the apple before the kickoff is finally activated and kicks the apple into the waiting bucket.

Eureka 3 Station Commercial Apple Peeler2 Reading 78 Apple Parers  Common but durable, the Reading 78 is the old standby for paring apples.  One would wonder why they ever had to make another one after this one came out it was such a good design.  In fact, they are still making them today.  But these are vintage.
