Peels just the skin!

Peeling fruits and vegetables is quick and easy with the Rotato Express. It peels just the skin without wasting any of the nutritious part of the vegetable. The Rotato Express is simple and safe to operate; even a child can use it. Its non-slip base holds it securely to the counter or other work surface. Rotato comes with a little plastic knife, stored conveniently under the base. It's specially designed for easy removal of potato eyes or other blemishes.

Peels the following foods
  1. Potatoes
  2. Cucumbers
  3. Apples
  4. Pears
  5. Peaches
  6. Turnips
  7. Onions
  8. Tomatoes
  9. Radishes
  10. Kiwis
Helpful hints

Before peeling, put a paper towel beneath the Rotato to catch peelings.

When choosing foods to be peeled, choose fruits and vegetables that are firm, blemish free and symmetrically shaped. Fruits and vegetables more than 5.5" tall should be cut in half so the Rotato Express can grip them firmly.

How to peel fruits and vegetables
  1. Center the food on the bottom food holder and press gently
  2. Lower the upper food holder so that it grasps the food and holds it securely
  3. Using the height adjustment lever, raise the cutter arm so that it rests on top of food to be peeled. WARNING: Do not grab cutter blade… it is razor sharp!
  4. While pressing lightly on the upper food holder, press on the power button. The skin peels off in one clean, continuous curl
How to remove peeled food
  1. Lift upper food holder from food and raise it to the top of the support column.
  2. Grasp food, and using a gentle back and forth rocking motion, remove food from bottom food holder pulling towards you. Do not yank your fruit or vegetable straight up from the bottom food holder. You don't want to accidentally swing your hand into the holder spike. WARNING: Do not grab cutter blade… it is razor sharp.
  3. Trip off any deep potato eyes with the little plastic knife. Use the same knife to remove blemishes on fruit and vegetables.

The Rotato Express, when it works, makes peeling potatoes and other veggies a breeze. It's especially great when making large batches of potatoes or turnips -- all that peeling can really be a hassle sometimes. The Rotato can turn a big job into a fast job and save you a lot of time in the kitchen. When it works.

The problem is, well, it doesn't always work. The build quality of this thing is cheaper than cheap. The blades pop loose easily because the plastic clips they're attached to are flimsy. Veggies with hard peels will constantly jerk the blades out. Even worse, the spring on the arm of my device popped loose after about two months of medium use. This renders the device useless unless you can manage to reinsert the spring (not an easy job).

At the cheap price, you could almost consider it a disposable item and just grab a new Rotato, but that's just too darn wasteful for such a big hunk of plastic.

If they delivered a better unit, even for $10-15 bucks more, I could heartily recommend this device for people who enjoy potatoes, turnips, or any other veggies that need a lot of peeling. As it is, it might be worth a look, but convenience comes with headaches.

I own a grocery store that has an expanding deli. I looked at one of these peelers but they had so many bad reviews. I hate wasting time and wasting potatoes peeling them. I bought this little thing and wow! It really works. Plus all the peeling go straight in the trash. My clean up is nothing. I should have bought this a long time ago. I have peeled about 100 lbs of potatoes with the same blade. So definitely the best bang for your buck. I also use it for making apple pies. I peeled about 30lbs of potatoes a week this is great for the money and electricity cost. So much faster ,so much easier, and doesn't waste potatoes. Thank so much!

I do love this peeler...it really does save a boat load of time. It takes me less than 10 minutes total to peel 5 pounds of potatoes. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5, is I wish it would peel closer to the top and the bottom of the potato, which would allow you to just trim the top and bottom, as opposed to having to manually peel them after they have gone through the rotato express.

My son & I prepare 250 pounds of Gravenstein apples for applesauce each year. We couldn't do it without this machine. We know that it was created for home use, not commercial use, so it probably wasn't intended for such intense use. Therefore, we run it for 15 minutes then let it cool for 15 minutes so the motor doesn't overheat. We just finished this year's batch, running it this way for three days at five or so hours each day, and it was terrific.

I LOVE this product. With 7 children I peel a LOT of potatos. The only problem I had with it was when it stopped working. It simply slowed down and after 6 months of CONSTANT use it died. Since I am buying another one it must be worth the money. If you love potatos but hate peeling them this is the must have gadget for you!

I bought the Rotato to replace my old electric peeler that finally died. I needed to peel a large stack of potatoes for Thanksgiving, and thought I had it made when I remembered the Rotato sitting in the pantry, unused since receiving it earlier this year. What I pulled out of the box was a lightweight plastic ghost of the old peeler. The blade could not grab hold of the potato skin, just skipped along making nicks until it reached the bottom and turned itself off. I tried it on dry and wet potatoes. I'm envious of those reviewers who had good luck with their peelers; I could not get mine to work.

After reading all reviews I decided to take a chance and buy(2), one for myself and another as a gift. Big Mistake.
Everything is made of plastic ,and I just don't see this lasting very long.
It is a cool gadget, but there is No quality to it.
Blade from my peeler also popped right off few times until I noticed that was broken.It does come with 2 spare blades so I was able to switch the blade. BUT than to make things worse whole cutter arm came off. It took me more than 5 minutes to force it back in place. After that It managed to peel rest off my apple or what was left of it. It did little better with the potato(softer skin).If you are going to use it only for potatos and lots of them it might be worth buying provided that it still "works".It Is kind of cool when it works, that's why I didn't give it only 1 star .Also I wish it was peeling little less deep. Even at this sale price I would Not buy this again, unless they replace some plastic parts with stronger materials(metal would be nice).
If you like to buy solid ,well build products that last for many years than Don't Waste your Money on this.I hope my review helps.
