No grief: This advanced peeler masters gnarly root vegetables

November 13, 2011 |  7:00 am

KYOCERA (1 of 1)I’ve noticed this Kyocera peeler in cookware stores before, and each time thought, no. I don’t really need this. But my little ceramic blade paring knife they make has become such a useful tool, I finally succumbed.

Not only is the blade of Kyocera’s Perfect Peeler super-sharp and thin, the head swivels and can be locked into vertical, horizontal or 45-degree positions, the better to peel that carrot or knobbly sunchoke. 

With this, peeling those spuds and gnarly root vegetables for Thanksgiving should be a cinch. It’s high-tech, like driving a race car compared with the usual dull potato peeler.

Kyocera CP-20 Perfect Peeler, $17.95. Available at Sur La Table, Williams-Sonoma  and online retailers, and from Kyocera at (800) 537-0294.
