The multi-use kitchen tool
Many of us use our peelers for one purpose only – trimming the skins off fruits and vegetables. But this humble tool can do more than triple-duty in your kitchen. With a Kyocera Ceramic Peeler you can shave cheese slices: Use your peeler to shave super thin slices of cheese to garnish your dishes. Make vegetable ribbons: Turn your vegetables into artful ribbons for salads. Garnish cocktails: Use a peeler to peel off a zesty lemon, line or orange twist to garnish and add flavor to your evening cocktail. Make Chocolate curls: Run your Kyocera ceramic peeler down the surface of chocolate to make luscious curls, perfect for cake decorating. Shave frozen butter: Forgot to defrost your butter from the fridge for your breakfast toast? Shave off thin slices of your butter and they’ll melt over the warm bread. Remove fiber from celery: Use your peeler to shave off the skin and de-string the fibers.
Kyocera Ceramic Peeler Features
Choose from many brightly colored peelers in 5 different styles…bring some fun into your kitchen! A great introduction to ceramics kitchen tools: easy to use, lightweight, rust-proof and easy to clean with an ultra-sharp blade that stays sharp 10X longer than steel blades.
The Kyocera Difference: Zirconia Z206
Zirconia Z206 is Kyocera's proprietary advanced ceramic formula made exclusively in Japan. No one else can use or claim to use our material. The advanced ceramic material has very dense sub-micron particles, which leave minimal voids. This translates into a stronger, denser blade that holds an edge longer than other ceramic knives - period! The blade on a Kyocera Advanced Ceramic knife or kitchen tool means minimal resistance as you slice. Clean, precise, less-intrusive cuts, requiring less pressure is what makes all Kyocera ceramic products so unique.
Top Customer Reviews
The two little black plastic pins that hold the blade into the handle are the Achilles heel of this product. One is smaller than the other and it recently broke. I've heard this same problem from other owners of this product.
I'm waiting for a response from Kyocera as to whether this is covered under their 5 year warranty. But frankly, something like this shouldn't be happening, and it's a serious design flaw on an otherwise outstanding product.
Update to the previous review. I finally (things were kind of busy for them the Monday after Thanksgiving!) got a call back from Kyocera, they took my name and address, and immediately sent me a replacement for the broken part. The replacement arrived today, UPS 2 day delivery! I was very impressed with the speed and responsiveness of their customer service. It definitely makes a difference in whether I deal with a company in the future.
Based on this, I'd like to change my rating from 2 stars to 5 stars, but it doesn't seem to want to let me do that.
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.
But, the single blade means you can only use in one direction - away from you, if you're right-handed and toward you, if left-handed.
I hadn't really analyzed my veggie peeling directions before but have discovered, depending on the vegetable, some I peel away and some toward.
I briefly thought the blade could be removed and flipped. It can be removed. But it can not be flipped (pegs on the blade and holes in the handle are different-sized).
Kinda disappointed that the blade doesn't flip or it's not a double-blade or they don't offer a left-hand version.
If you peel all your veggies in one direction (the "correct" direction, for your handedness), then this seems like it's a decent peeler.
I like the rotating head. For fruit I keep the blade facing me at a 45-degree angle, so I end up using the peeler like an effortless paring knife. But for carrots and potatoes I turn it so the blade's facing straight away like a regular peeler.
The only thing I can think of that would improve this peeler would be if, at the end of the handle, there was a hook or something to dig out blemishes or potato eyes. If it had that, I'd agree it's the Perfect Peeler. But even without it, this is definitely my peeler of choice. It's pretty expensive, but if you're going to use it often, I think it's worth it. And hey, it's not like you're going to buy them often. I've had mine for over a year, and there's no reason to think I'll ever have to replace it.
I vaguely remember a reviewer saying that theirs broke, but didn't give it another thought until last night when mine broke too. I just called Kyocera, all it took was a quick internet search to find info about their 5 year warranty. Within three minutes they had taken my address to ship a new peeler......and never even asked me to prove my purchase. When I commented on that, the rep said "we trust you". So my replacement is to arrive later this week. Wow.
If it breaks once in a while, but Kyocera will replace it so easily, I'll keep on reaping praise.
FYI - Kyocera's customer service number for US and Canada is 888-700-7371
