KP duty in days gone by usually meant peeling potatoes–a relatively labor intensive, boring job. Now you can buy electric peelers designed to peel potatoes automatically. Some version of this has been around roughly since the 80’s, and unfortunately the expectations exceeded the reality. You are still better off using the old fashion peeler. But with so many on the market, how do you choose?
MarkdownMom likes the OXOGood Grips Pro Swivel Peeler. An item rated high by users and, what MDM especially likes features replaceable blades (sold separately) making it possible to just replace the blade when it becomes dull. Priced at $12.99 at Amazon. Black only.
A second choice you might want to consider is the Messermiester Pro-Touch Red Serrated Swivel Peeler ideal for soft skin fruit and vegetables. Stainless steel blade. Consumers report it makes light work of peeling tomatoes, carrots, parsnips and even squash. Comes with a clip-on blade guard. Best price $8.47 at Amazon. Best Consumer Rated.
