...get the eyes, get the eyes."
When I still had my baby teeth, my baba would take my hand and recite this little rhyme. "Peel potatoes" - she'd trace a circle on my palm. "Get the eyes" - she'd give me a sort of ticklepinch.
It's easier to peel potatoes and get the eyes when you have an ergonomic product such as this 2-in-1 Peeler by Starfrit.
A few weeks ago, I was given the opportunity to test-drive this model. I had my doubts; I thought that the handle design would be tough to use with my "reconfigured" hand. This 2-in-1 Peeler has become my favourite peeler. I quickly and easily peeled the carrots, alternating between the straight and julienne cut. Next up were those elusive potatoes. I must say that I'm practically an expert eye remover!
Now this is where things get fun for you. Today's 2-in-1 Peeler is the first of four Starfrit kitchen gadgets that will be winding their way to one lucky person at the end of the Gadget Tuesday series. If you comment on all four posts, I'll put your name into the hat four times. If your name is drawn, you will receive the 2-in-1 Peeler, plus three other items, courtesy of the fine folks at Starfrit!
For one entry, please answer the following question: what is your favourite way to enjoy potatoes?
