Here's something to try the next time you're cooking and have to peel a bunch of stuff. There's a video online of a chef who came up with the idea of using a POWER DRILL to peel apples.
He takes each one and sticks it on the end of the drill. Then he just holds the peeler to it while it spins around. And he peels each apple in about three seconds. (Search for "Chef Uses Power Drill to Peel Apples.")
