A chef in the Netherlands has come up with a novel solution for peeling apples when in a hurry. After receiving a large order for his tarte tatin, Jasper van Ramhorst turned to DIY when he could not find a kitchen appliance to do the job. Colleagues at the Eetcafé de Gribus restaurant filmed the head chef using a power drill to peel his way through a pile of apples in seconds.
All you need is a power drill and a regular vegetable peeler. Clean off a spade (aka butterfly) bit and insert it into the bottom of the fruit (be sure you wash your apples properly beforehand). Turn on the drill as you hold the peeler against the apple and watch the peel fly!
