Corey, don't feel bad. I would probably have purchased it too. Although I need another cooking gizmo like I need a hole in the head, OK, another hole in the head.

Thanx.

Just about ALL of Presto's products are usually big hits, but I guess this one fell trough the cracks and went sour in a hurry!

I wonder if there was a design flaw in this thing and if Presto decided to pull the pug on it and take it off their website. One has to wonder.

I DO have their Options Multi-Cooker which is a great appliance!

Yes. Mashed potatoes are becoming a delicacy because it's the only time I peel my potatoes anymore

heck, I don't even peel them for mashed potatoes. But I can't called them mashed potatoes, cause folks have some pre-conceived notion of what mashed potatoes are

Products like this make me feel that the end of the world must be near. Using electricity to peel potatoes? No thanks - power bill is high enough as it is!

LOL flukx, I agree! My hands and a cheap-o peeler work just fine. Sorry Corey, I have made purchases like that before and wonder why I even doubted the skill of my own hands.

I remember when I got a potato curler as a wedding gift...... ummmm.... well, it sat in the box FOREVER before I finally donated it to Good Will, hopefully someone found some use for it!

Yea kitchenelf, it was suppose to make those curly fries I believe. Unless you are making curly fries and selling them, I can't see the point of having some bulky machine like that take up valuable space in my kitchen! I'm sure I have a few other things in my cabinets that I could part with!

OHHHHHHHHHHHH - I know the curly fries you are talking about - I'm thinking something like "butter curler" and my head just wasn't wrapping around it!

Actually, I think there IS a potato peeler that looks like the apple peeler. I think I've seen Emeril use one on his show.
