Exciting kitchen utensil news

I realise it's been a while since I last posted, but it's all been a bit dull in the world of Noel. Mrs Noel has of course been doing well with her running and was first lady at Famous Grouse fell race, which was more than a month ago now.

So why have I posted now after such a long period of inactivity? Well, Santa brought me something that I felt I had to share with the world. It's an apple peeler and corer. I'd seen one of these at a friends house a few years ago, and was delighted to get one for Christmas - thanks Mum. However, when I describe it to people, it's a bit hard to visualise (even with arm movements and analogies to other kitchen utensils).

To fully bring it to life, I've had to step into the 21 century and video the proceedings. Interestingly, once I'd uploaded this onto YouTube, I noticed there were several other videos of exactly the same thing. Anyway, this one is mine. Enjoy!


  1. Cool - an apple lathe! Want one.

  2. Surely a missed opportunity for a quick round of 'I'm a Kitchen Utensil'?!

  3. That's got me thinking of circular apple sculptures 4 Winds. I think I should stick to crumbles for a while first.

    Yeah, Simon. I was tempted. I think my excitement at how good it was got the better of me.

    P.S. Happy New Year to you both :)
