Return Apple Parers
After paring an apple a return reverses the direction of the paring arm. The paring arm in "quick returns" snap back after the gearing mechanism is disengaged. "Slow returns" reverse the paring arm while still in gear and may be used to pare apples in both directions. Click on the pictures to learn more.
