Knives and peelers are the most basic tool everyone needs in their kitchen. But those who use peelers constantly know how cramped the fingers become after peeling a few veggies at length. This review is for all the people who love working in the kitchen but need more efficient and easy-to-use peelers.
3. The Parameters
To decide on the best potato peeler and scraper for your kitchen we landed on these four parameters –
Practical usage – Were we able to peel and scrape the vegetables with ease or not? Was the grip good or was the peeler tough to handle?
The efficiency of the blade – Was it a vertical or horizontal blade? How smoothly did the peeler work on the veggies?
Weight and ease of handling- We wanted to see if it is lightweight or too heavy to handle. Lighter knives would obviously be easier to handle and put less pressure on our hands.
Peel thickness – We wanted to see if the peel was thick or thin? Was there too much food wastage?
