Make room in your kitchen drawers by throwing away all other peelers
on December 15, 2006
You know the old rusty potato peeler you have in the kitchen junk drawer? You dont have to lie, we all know it's there. Getting rustier, duller, getting caught in the shish kebab skewers you use twice a year.
I bet you also have some other type of peeler, causing its own junk drawer drama. Its blade just as rusted, just as warped and damaged.
But you need at least two types of peelers, right? Even Alton Brown says you should have one straight peeler and one horizontal peeler, since they do different things in the kitchen.
What if someone invented a peeler that could change from a straight peeler to a horizontal peeler, and had a setting in between the two to give you a diagnol peeling edge, AND made the blade ceramic which means no more rusting up, no more running metal over your tubers causing them to brown early and look generally ugly? What if it could be used with your left or right hand equally as well?
Would you buy it?
I would. And, I did.
I've also bought one for everyone in my family who cooks, because it's just that awesome of a tool.
So seriously, throw out the old metal junky peelers your mom gave you when you moved out of the house, and get this peeler. The construction is solid. The dial which changes the blade position is very sturdy, with very definite notches at each blade position.
Also, it looks really cool.
