Buy This: Steampunk Apple Peeler


Do you love Jules Verne and H.G. Wells? And do you also need to bake an apple pie for Thanksgiving? Well, take off your silly, little bowler hat and those ridiculous goggles, because have we got the perfect apple peeler for you! Dated back to 1899, this old-school, hand-crank, mechanical apple peeler is a necessary kitchen gadget to have at any Steampunk Thanksgiving celebration. It's currently selling for $1,200 on eBay, and the only catch is that you have to be able to drive to Pfafftown, North Carolina to pick it up; apparently, the seller wants no part of shipping this enormo-peeler to you and your Doctor Who-obsessed friends. 

So put on your petticoat, pop in your Wild Wild West DVD, buy this Victorian-era peeler and get ready to peel some apples!
