I love seeing what kitchen gadgets are hot on the market. I freely confess that if I had the budget I would buy and try every single one of them!
This month the Food Network featured a product called Kyocera Perfect Ceramic Peeler that really caught my eye. You see peeling vegetables is one of the most boring and annoying tasks that I have to do in the kitchen. Grating cheese and carrots is up there as well. Not only do I long for the day when I will have a food processor, I also now look forward to the day that I can pick up the Kyocera Perfect Ceramic Peeler
So what about it caught my eye? Well its blade is made from ceramic and is supposed to keep its edge 10x longer than traditional steel peelers. It also had a swivvle head to maintain contact with contoured surfaces. Seeing the speed with which the various testers were able to strip potatoes and other veggies, I grew wistful.
Does anyone own this product? What do you think?
