Okay, now I know I’m late to the game with this item. Seriously. Who never heard of using this nifty little gadget to peel potatoes, carrots, fruits, etc? Me, that’s who.
I grew up with the flimsy metal peelers that were dull, dull, dull. I remember my mom asking me to peel potatoes with it and I usually ended up gouging out half the outer layer trying to make it work. Since then, I’ve only ever used one to peel the skins from carrots. Even then I struggled. Now I buy the already peeled and bagged carrots. Much easier and more convenient.
Well, this past week I spent Thanksgiving with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law in Virginia Beach and she assigned me the task of peeling potatoes. When she handed me this really cool peeler, I looked at her funny. Seriously? I know I’m a huge klutz but I CAN use a knife.
I was amazed at how well these new peelers work. We slicked through those potatoes like they were nothing and I didn’t even feel guilty like I normally do for cutting so much off with the outer peel.
Needless to say, I came right home and bought my own (or two). So this nifty little peeler is my #2 favorite thing for December. Don’t you love the colors? I’ve got an orange and a green one. 🙂
I can tell you’re like me and you LOVE your kitchen gadgets! My discovery of these new peelers were two years ago when my father-in-law introduced me to them. I’m with you. LOVE IT. What colors did you get?
Too funny. Seriously, how did we not know this???? I have an orange one and a green one. As soon as we are finished moving, I plan to have something with potatoes in it just so I can use it. Or maybe an apple.
Great minds thinkg alike. 😉
I have a Pampered Chef peeler that works pretty well, but I have never seen these before. Where do you get them?
Very cool. I luv, luv, luv kitchen gadgets.
