When you need to clean up potato chips and prepare French fries, there are certain…
Potato peelers haven’t always been around in most kitchens. There’s a very good reason for this. In the beginning they were quite basic, consisting simply of a sharpened metal surface on which you stuck the potatoes. This method of potato peeling is still in use, but now modern versions have all sorts of extras to make them useful in many different types of kitchens.
A classic euro peeler is still among the best kitchen tools. There’s a reason for this. If you’re looking for a really great way to remove skin from potatoes, you need to look for a potato peeling tool that utilizes a metal blade. These days, they are made of a more durable metal design, featuring a strong, rigid metal blade.
In the last few decades, though, there has been an upgrade to the classic paring tools that also became a classic in many homes. Instead of just sticking the potatoes on the surface, these new versions feature a straight edge on one or both sides of the blades. This allows the user to cut a variety of different shapes. For example, instead of just removing the entire row of flat surface skin, you can actually cut out half of the potato with each slice. This is especially helpful when cutting long, rectangular shaped veggies. You can then proceed to remove the remaining skin and get those sharp edges.
The handle on some newer Potato Peelers is also different than the handles on the original Swiss peeler. The handles on many of today’s Potato Peelsers have been replaced with ergonomic leather grips. The reason for this is to help make it easier for the user to hold onto the handle while using the paring tool. The reason that the handle on the Kuhn rikon original Swiss peeler was such an issue is because it was so hard to hold onto. The new handles to solve this problem, making it easier for people to peel their potatoes without having to worry about whether they can get their hand around the handle.
There are other benefits that come from owning an electric peeler, besides the ability to peel your own potatoes. One benefit is that it helps save you time, since you don’t have to individually wash and dry your vegetables like you would have to do with a manual peeler. With an electric peeler, all you have to do is press the button, and you can have your potato and vegetable spa right away. The time it takes to dry the vegetables using a manual peeler is significant, especially if you’re working with a large number of pieces of food. Not only does the electric peeler help speed up the drying time, but it also helps keep your kitchen looking neat and clutter-free.
One of the best things about owning a potato peeler is the fact that you can get creative with the way you use it. There are endless ways in which you can use it, and depending on your preferences there are plenty of ways in which you can enjoy it. I personally love to use mine to make a quick and easy soup. All you have to do is cut up your potatoes (peeled, as well as rinsed) into chunks, add some water to fill up the chunks, and let the mixture warm up. When it’s ready, just place everything into a serving dish, add some water, some salt, and some sugar to taste, and you’re done!
Some people prefer to use their potato peeler to make an apple cider solution. The idea behind this is to allow you to get the apples off the skin as well as the green parts, which is what makes the cider taste better. You can take a slice of apple and put it into a pot full of hot water, and then turn it on the stove to bring it to a boil. Once you remove the slices of apple, simply place them on your peeler, add some lemon juice, some honey, and then let them steep for a few minutes until the honey is liquefied, which will loosen the skin on the apple cider.
I also like to use my potato peeler to mash potatoes. This is probably the easiest way that I know of to make mashed potatoes that taste great. Just put your potatoes into a pot with a lid (I like the mesh type), and add some water to cover them. Leave them for about two hours, and then drain them on a strainer. Then, you can put the mixture in your blender, along with some milk, some salt and pepper to taste, and you’re all set!
