OXO Good Grips Swivel Peeler
Every kitchen deserves to have a good peeler. Some home cooks prefer to use a Y-shaped peeler while others prefer a more straightforward one. If you’re the type of home cook who prefers the latter, then you should consider getting the OXO Good Grips Swivel Peeler.
The OXO Good Grips Swivel Peeler functions like any other vegetable and fruit peeler on the market. What sets it apart is the quality of its construction. The blades are super-sharp. They can peel almost any vegetable, fruit, or root crop that you have in your kitchen.
The twin blades swivel at two opposing points in the blade frame. This allows the peeler to remove the skin of ingredients regardless of how uneven the surface is. At the tip of the blade frame is a potato eye remover. There is no need to get another kitchen utensil to gouge the nasty eyes from your favorite starchy ingredient.
There is one issue that a few home cooks raised about the design of the Good Grips. The utensil comes with a protective case. However, there were a few incidents where the protective case failed or gave way. This leads to injuries in the form of small cuts on the fingers of some people. While this is saddening, it highlights the sharpness of the blades.
A better way to store the Good Grips is by hanging it through a hook. The large hole on the handle should accommodate any size of hook on your kitchen wall or cabinet. This should address accidental cuts that one may have if the Good Grips gets stored in a drawer.
Aside from a sharp blade, the Good Grips also have an excellent handle. The oversized handle comes with a textured design in its upper section. The surface also has a rubbery finish. It can help improve overall control of the peeler while working on your ingredients. It doesn’t matter if your hands are wet. The design of the Good Grips handle prevents it from slipping from your hand.
This tool is safe to clean in the dishwasher. It can also complement your other kitchen utensils because of its modern styling.
