A few words about choosing the right peeler
All vegetable cleaning tools are divided into 2 main types:
- elongated like a knife, suitable for working round small fruits,
- with perpendicularly spaced blades relative to the handle, most convenient for peeling elongated fruits – cucumbers, carrots. They are considered versatile; they are also suitable for processing round vegetables.
The second thing you should pay attention to is the way of fixing the head with the blades. It can be stationary (this usually removes more of the peel) and rotating, which adjusts its position to the shape of the fruit, catching only a thin layer of the peel.
Another aspect of the choice is the blade material and its appearance. Ceramic lasts longer, it is easier to care for it, but fine sharpening is problematic, it is more difficult to cling to the peel with such a tool, and it is usually sharpened on one side. Stainless steel blades are much more functional – they are cheaper, sharpened on both sides. Serrated cutting surfaces better grip the thin skins of fruits and tomatoes, while smooth ones are more suitable for working with thick-skinned fruits.
