Stainless steel sink -$39 @ Menard's
1 1/4 (yes 1 1/4) horsepower disposal - $99 @ Costco
2 X 3 X 8 ft studs - 3 of them - ?$6 @ Menard's
Top of sink is about 3 1/2 feet.

I'm sure someone can do it cheaper and I know people can do it prettier but I don't think anyone can do it easier. I'll let you know how it works this fall.

Will the seeds throw in an off flavor once they're shredded?

Wouldn't that thing completely tear up the apples? Kind of like a blender?

How will you be able to keep the insides sanitary?

My guess is that you'd dose the resulting puree with sulfites but you can also run starsan through the thing.
