    I can peel, core and slice a 5 lb bag of apples in about 15 mins. add 2 minutes to dice the slices.

    All with one little paring knife.

    We are not into gadgets. No room for the clutter and a lot of clean-up.

    PS Plastic cutting sheets are a must when prepping.

    I hate gadgets I don't even have a microwave. I always find a knife is so much easier to wash up than a complicated chopper.

    This is a typical apple corer:

    Just push down and it makes wedges, you throw away the core. Then you still need a knife to dice the remaining wedges.

    Without this device, just use a knife for the entire process.

    I crush walnuts, pecans, in a coffee mill. Personally, I can't get enough power to use an apple corer. Clean up is an important consideration. It is much safer to handle a simple paring knife than a food processor blade.

    A lot of fancy kitchen gadgets are simply scaled down versions of commercial kitchen appliances. Home kitchens seldom need the volume and maintenance of automated food prepping equipment. I consider home cooking to be one of the few natural artisan pleasures of life.

    We have a good Oster blender - used mostly for cream soups, milkshakes and special adult beverage occasions. We have an electric coffee grinder.

    We have a manual can opener

    A selection of good knives, potato peelers, whisks, etc. Pots and pans, steamers, etc.

    I used to always have a good butcher block cutting board but I find the plastic cutting sheets handier.

    We love to cook. Especially in the winter.
