Veggie Peel does a cook a huge favor

The Veggie Peeler saves the hassle of cleaning up those messy peels.

One of my wife’s favorite side dishes is “candied carrots” made Good Eats style. My son’s, of course, is french fries. And me? Well, I’m just happy with mashed taters. But it can be such a hassle to peel a half dozen carrots or so and then have to stop what you’re doing in order to clean up the peels. Sure, you can peel them in the garbage disposal, but often that can clog up the drain and not every kitchen has the disposal option. What does a cook do with all that vegetable detritus? Enter the Veggie Peel.

Simply but, the Veggie Peel is a peeler with a clear plastic chamber built into it to catch all the peels. When you’re done, it’s easy to take apart the Veggie Peel and empty it into the trash. No muss, no fuss. And with the double-sided, curved rubber grip, it’s easy for both lefties and righties to peel the veggies with ease. It almost looks like it could be “As seen on TV.” But even it if were, this is one of those – I have got to get me one of these – gadgets.

Available at Solutions, but unfortunately, for $20, it doesn’t come with a free set of Ginsu steak knives.
