ii CONGRATULATIONS!
You now own the world’s finest apple/potato peeler. You’ll save time, effort and
money. We want you to get the most out of your new Victorio Peeler. Before
plunging right in and peeling a bushel of apples or bag of potatoes, you will want
to get acquainted with the Victorio Peeler. It’s designed to save you time, effort
and money by performing several tasks at once. With the turn of a hand you can:
• Peel, core, and slice apples
• Peel apples and potatoes
• Slice and core apples without peeling
• Make shoestring potatoes
And the Victorio Peeler always gives you the choice of leaving the peel
on or taking it off.
Warning!

Peeler has sharp blades and edges that can cause serious injury if used or
handled improperly.

Use caution at all times when assembling, adjusting or using this peeler.

Close supervision is required when using peeler near children.

For household use only.

Please read the entire manual before using.
Assembly:
Using the diagram on the left as your guide
1.
Using a Phillips screw driver, attach the handle using the included screw.
2.
Attach the fork to the end of the threaded rod.
1 Mounting to suitable surface: (mounting diagrams and info):
Before using the peeler needs to be properly secured to a suitable surface that is
secure and will stay firmly in place during use. This is required for the peeler to
work properly.
VKP1010 Suction Base Peeler: The suction mount must be used with a
smooth non-porous surface. When suction cup is used on the correct mounting
surface it will stay firmly in place and allow the peeler to be used without need to
reattach. Surfaces that may not be suitable for use are wood, small or rough tile,
unsealed granite and textured surfaces or surfaces with cracks.
VKP1011 Clamp Base Peeler: Needs to be attached to a firm sturdy surface. The clamp base will attach to a surface thickness of 1/2-inch to 1-1/2 inches. Clamp should only be tightened by hand. Do not use tools to tighten clamp, it
may damage the peeler and will void your warranty. See illustrations below for
proper mounting example.
2 Align, adjust and secure blades:
Before using the peeler it is critical that the blades are properly aligned, adjusted
and secured. Misaligned or unsecured blades will damage the peeler.
Align the coring blade:
Align the coring/slicing blade. The fork
should be able to pass through the center of
the blade without touching the sides. The
correct alignment is shown to the right. The
blade MUST be tightened firmly so it will
not move out of alignment during operation. * Use caution when adjusting,
blade is sharp!
Test alignment:
Test blade alignment by
pressing down on the
release lever. While holding the release lever down
move the shaft forwards
and backwards and watch
the fork as it is passing
through the center of the
coring blade. Observe
carefully to make sure the
fork doesn’t touch the
sides of the coring blade.
3 Adjust peeling blade:
The peeling blade works best when adjusted to about 1/8 inch past the head of
the peeling arm. To adjust the peeling blade, loosen the wing-nut 1/2 turn. The
blade can be moved forwards to remove more peel or backwards to remove
less peel. Firmly tighten the wing-nut after adjustment has been made. It may
require a few tests and further blade adjustments before you get the desired
result. * Use caution when adjusting, blade is sharp!
1/8”
Loosen Adjust Tighten Adjust peeling arm:
The peeling arm has been factory adjusted to have approximately 1⁄4 inch
clearance between the peeling blade and the widest part of the fork.. To adjust
the position of the peeling arm, either tighten or loosen the adjustable screw to
achieve proper spacing. Turn the screw clockwise to adjust it away from the
fork. Turn the screw counter-clockwise to adjust it closer to the fork.
4 Place apple on fork:

Press the release lever as shown in the illustration on bottom of page 3 and
while holding down the lever pull the spiral shaft away from the coring blade
until the fork is as far away from the coring blade as possible.

Place apple on fork (stem end first) and center the apple on the fork as well as
possible. Make sure the apple is pressed firmly onto the fork.

Turn the handle clockwise a few turns to make sure the apple is centered on
the fork properly. Adjust if necessary.

The illustration below shows how it should look when you are ready to begin
peeling.
5 To Peel, Slice and Core

To peel turn the handle slowly clockwise to advance the apple into the blades.
The peeling blade will automatically adjust to the contour of the apple as it advances forward.

To remove the core, push in the shaft lever and pull back on the handle. Core
will be ejected by the coring/slicing blade.

When peeling is finished carefully remove the core from the fork. Press the
release lever and pull the shaft away from the coring blade and back to the starting position.
For Peeling Only
Peeling apples and potatoes is quick and easy with the Victorio Peeler – no more
scraping your hand with a potato peeler.

Loosen the wing nut at the end of the Victorio Peeler. This will allow you to
disengage the coring slicing blade. Either move the coring slicing blade to the
side, out of the path of the shaft, or remove the blade completely
For Slicing and Coring without Peeling
For those occasions when the peelings are left on the fruit for flavor, texture, or
color:

6 Pull the peeling arm downward and engage the lock lever. The lever will keep
the peeling blade clear of the fruit.
Tips and tricks

Apples and potatoes that are firm, blemish free, and symmetrically shaped
work best.

For best results use only small to medium sized apples. Very large apples may
have undesirable results.

When peeling potatoes US Grade #1 will give you the best results.

Avoid using soft fruit. Soft fruit will have problems peeling and staying in
place on the fork.
Making Shoestring Potatoes
The first step to restaurant-style hash browns is cutting them to shoestring thickness. No more scrubbing potatoes and knuckles across the graters The Victorio
Peeler makes cutting shoestring potatoes almost effortless.
1. Remove the coring/slicing blade from the path of the shaft.
2. Adjust the peeling blade as far toward the potato as possible so that it cuts deep
into the potato.
3. Turn handle and peel the potato with the deep cut.
4. When the full length of the potato has been peeled, lock back the peeling arm,
pull back the peeling shaft, and then release the peeling arm.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until the peeling blade will no longer clear the 3prong fork.
7 Cleaning and care:

When cleaning the entire unit hand washing in recommended.

After washing dry thoroughly.

Peeling and coring/slicing blade can be washed in a dishwasher.

A drop of vegetable oil on the moving parts will insure smooth operation for
next use.
