Presto Peel-a-Meal Electric Potato Peeler

Presto 02905 Peel a Meal Electric Peeler

“Never again.” It’s a pretty good bet those words have been spoken aloud quite often during the past few days. But before we all experienced National Hangover Day on New Year’s Day, we had those pesky resolutions to consider. While there were certainly many utterances banishing fatty and greasy foods to the depths of oblivion, there were likely New Year’s Resolutions that dealt with the holiday season specifically. As in, “Never again will I make a million pounds of mashed potatoes!”

If these words sound familiar, check out the Presto 02905 Peel a Meal Electric Peeler. The electric peeler claims to peel apples, potatoes and more quickly and easily (and most importantly, automatically). If this sounds too good to be true, perhaps it is; reviews are mixed. But at less than $25, it might not hurt to try, and hey, one can always re-gift it if it doesn’t work for you. Better than a Big Mouth Billy Bass (70 bucks!?!).

Orange Peelers

Set of 4 Round Orange Peelers, a Simple and Practical Way to Peel Oranges

These Orange Peelers may not have a catchy name, but they do look to be handy little pieces to have about the kitchen. Considering the amount of words that rhyme with orange, it’s probably a good thing the designers stopped where they did instead of trying to come up with a too-cute clever name. Might have ended up with something like Porange Eelers! Actually… Nah. In any event, product features below.

Spin The Peeler

Joseph Joseph 3-in-1 Design Rotary Peeler

Different peelers are designed to do different things. Some are designed for soft-skinned fruits and vegetables like kiwis and tomatoes, while others are meant for tougher produce like carrots and potatoes. A third option is the julienne peeler, used to create matchstick-like thin strips. With three different blades for three different uses, the Joseph Joseph 3-in-1 Design Rotary Peeler provides all of the above in one compact design. With a twist of the dial, the convenient peeler switches to the desired blade, and is appropriate for both righties and lefties. After use, it unclips from its protective case and is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.

Three-point shot goes wide for this basketball gadget

Magic 3 in 1 Basketball Peeler Bottle Opener Storing Case

With the NBA Playoffs dribbling towards their inevitable conclusion (Cleveland in 5 over L.A.), it seems appropriate to highlight a basketball-themed kitchen gadget. With so many kitchen gadgets on the market it seems a bit difficult to choose only one. In that regard, here is the Magic 3 in 1 Basketball Peeler Bottle Opener Storing Case.

The three-point play combines a peeler, a bottle opener and a storing case. While the storing case is a bit of a stretch (foot on the line), the other two features are certainly useful. Granted, they all come in a weird basketball contraption, but somebody’s got to want one of these, right? Currently priced at $4.99 down from $16.99.
