Potato Pelling Machine

Recommended Posts

Pretty rough. Could work better only on fresh potatos still in summer, not those which are digged in autumn for wintertime.

Hah, that's really cool.  It reminds me of a machine which basically rumbled the skins off of potatoes like that when I was working in a hotel kitchen when I was young.  It was all enclosed though (bah, health and safety!) so seeing the potato (or tattie, as I would call it) rumbling around in there pleased me.  

I also remember that even with the professional/industrial machine you still had a little bit of peeling/taking off bad bits to do once the machine was finished.

Great model!

that is hilarious!

horribly inefficient... but hilarious nonetheless! :D

 

I was expecting some form of sharp blade.... but was quite surprised at how well the large curved racks stripped away the skin...

Next step is to make another module that will slice them. Perhaps using a fast-spinning 40 tooth gear like a saw?

I love this kind of ingenuity.  Brilliant.

Another great creation from uefchen.:classic: 

And also a good reminder to wash any used Lego you might buy, as the previous owner may have been using it to prepare food or clean cat litter.

This is great.

Any chance of changing the topic title so it is easily searched for in the future?

I think "portato pelling" is part of the charm ;)

Wonderful creation! But now your next project has to be a LEGO washing machine... :wink:
