The Rotato Express automatically peels for you

by Ally

If you have a serious love for almost pointless gadgets, you’ll enjoy this one.  Yes, you could say that you peel so many potatoes that you can’t handle peeling them by hand.  However, everyone knows that you’re just a gadget addict who enjoys having a machine to do even the most ridiculous tasks for you.  This for most would be one of those gadgets you get as a gift and although you think it’s interesting, it will just end up in the far corner of your kitchen cabinet.  Then eventually it will become so surrounded by other items that you’ll forget you even own it.

On the plus side though it does peel other items besides potatoes, like fruits and other vegetables.  Plus it’d have that nifty long curly peel left over.  To work the gadget you just adjust the bottom and top spike so it is jabbing into the chosen item and push the button.  Once the Rotato Express is finished it flips off all on its own.  It claims it’s ultra safe and extremely quick.  However, it’s debatable that it’s worth it when it’s priced at $30 from TaylorGifts.

I have the older hand crank model of this item. I must say that during thanksgiving this comes in handy. I feed about 20 people every year and they ALL love mashed potatoes (many don’t like the skin in the mash). This tool saves countless hours every year (also, I peel my apples for apple pie with it). I must admit that during the rest of the year (besides other holidays) it sits. The manual one that I bought 7 or 8 years ago was $10.

It takes about 18 minutes to hand peal a 60 count, 50 pound sack of potatoes, baker sized. How long does this device take to peal one potato?
