Great Gadgets: Electric Peeler To The Rescue

Zyliss Multipeeler Electric Peeler CNET’s Appliances and Kitchen Gadget blog features an uber-cool electric peeler. Yup, you heard that right. Electric peeler. Now you can skin potatoes, apples, and carrots like a bad ass. The peeler even features an intimidating (if not a bit redundant) name: the Zyliss Multipeeler Electric Peeler.

In all seriousness, this tool looks like it is a great gadget that will diminish the “strain-saving factor when peeling a large pile of fruits or vegetables.” The review mentions that very little effort is required to operate this gadget. I don’t own one of these yet, but I think I see one in my future.

Brian Krepshaw, the kitchen gadget blogger writes, “Sometimes it’s nice to have a tool that actually makes the job easier.”

Amen to that!
