WFMW: OXO Swivel Peeler

Works for me Wednesday is sponsored by Rocks in my Dryer. Don't forget to check her site for more WFMW tips!!!

When it comes to kitchen gadgets, sometimes, putting out the extra money pays off in the long run. In my case, it payed off big when I purchased the OXO GoodGrips Swivel Peeler. The handle is very comfortable, but that's not why I love this product so much (even though it is ergonomically correct). I love the blade on this product. It is 2" long, and super, SUPER sharp. My peeler is pushing 8 years now, and it is still as sharp as the day I bought it. It peels potatoes, apples, carrots, cukes, and anything else your appetite wants to have peeled

I use it like a paring knife when peeling apples, and in my humble opinion, it works much, much better and faster, and now that apple season is upon us, I thought I'd share this six dollar tip with you! But, don't just take my word for it... Gourmet Magazine tested a whole slew of peelers, and this baby came in first place!

So, rush out and get one, and enjoy peeling ... stuff ... on a whole new level!

I can never get peelers to work but this one just might work for me. I will give it a try!
