Peelers – Believe it or not those vegetable peelers (and knives) in your kitchen drawer do NOT last forever. With frequent use, they may lose their sharp edge, and are no longer efficient. I have recently tested two new peelers: the Swissmar double-edge peeler, which is multi-directional, and the Swissmar Julienne peeler, which cuts scalpel sharp matchstick shaped pieces. Both are made in Switzerland and are ergonomically designed and work quite efficiently. Both feature a handy built in blemish remover.
Swiss Double Edge Peeler
With a premium double-edge stainless steel blade, this peeler moves smoothly and comfortably in any direction for quick and easy prep. The ergonomic contoured handle offers quick and easy peeling for both right-and left-handed cooks, and accomplishes multi directional peeling.
Swiss Julienne Straight Peeler
This unique peeler has sharp stainless steel teeth that create thin strips of veggies with one easy stroke. It is perfect for cutting thin "sticks" for garnishes, salads and stir-fries. The ergonomic contoured handle features a non-slip area for a secure, comfortable grip. We tried it with cucumbers, carrots and squash. This peeler makes it easy to mimic professional style food presentations. It worked effortlessly.
Both peelers have a 5 year warranty. For more information, and to buy, click here: Swissmar USA Gourmet Products
