After spending time pealing a 10 lb. bag of oranges from Sam's Club, I wondered if someone might know of a device that would help peal oranges quicker and better? Thanks!

I only peel one at a time, why do you need ten pounds of peeled oranges?

I use a paring knife and section them if there is a lot to do.

But here are some ideas that I found while searching for info on how I do it:

I am sorry about the misspelling as I was posting in a hurry and didn't check my post! Yes, I have a juicer attachment that goes on the Kitchen Aid Mixer. So, you can juice the oranges in a hurry and I have a half gallon of fresh juice in my refrigerator for breakfast. The peeling has been the biggest chore. Thanks to all that have replied ! Reps to all of you!

Ahhh... you do have that little thing to squeeze juice out of lemon, right? Little ribbed dome? So you take a knife... cut orange in a half...place half onto that dome ... and...
How time taking is that?

Matter of fact, you can simply hand squeeze orange... unless you buy them where I buy them, then they are 2 adult man fists together size.

The juicer I have is like a food processor that you put the fruit part only down the spout and it separates the juice from the pulp. It is not like the kind you mentioned.

Oranges are not peeled in commercial juicing facilities. They're just smashed up whole and the peels, seeds, etc. strained out later.

I find oranges much easier to peel by hand if not cold or refrigerated first. I like them room temperature. Also, I find that navel oranges are easier to peel than other types like Valencia or blood oranges. Not sure if this is helpful at all in your case but for future reference.
