We cook a lot of meals with fresh vegetables at my house -- Mike is very much a meat and potatoes kinda guy (It's the Scot in him, I'm sure)!
However, I h*a*t*e to peel potatoes and carrots. And I can't eat carrots that haven't been peeled... I just... can't. Potatoes... some are great with the skin on and some not so much.
I've tried various peelers in my time and haven't ever been satisfied with any of them.
Lizz called me to tell me about a great Peeler she'd received and said, Mama, you have GOT to try this! So I did.
The Microplane Easy Prep Straight Peeler is fantastic kitchen tool. It's sturdy... a bit heavier than most peelers (thankfully! I like a tool with some heft to it)... and fits nicely into the palm of your hand.
The Microplane Easy Prep Peeler features a soft grip ergonomic handle with a sharp stainless steel blade. It's designed to make food prep easy and effortless.
It's certainly made life easier for me. I have arthritis. A small-handled peeler and my hands are in agony after 5 minutes. The larger, softer grip handle of the Easy Prep Peeler is such a welcome relief -- a blessing for arthritic hands!
Easily peel potatoes, carrot, cucumbers and other vegetables. The contemporary design of the new Microplane® straight blade peeler features soft grip ergonomic handles and sharp stainless steel blades designed to make food prep easy and effortless.
