Great Veg & Fruit Peeler
on 21 May 2013
This is an edited updated version of my recent Zyliss green vegetable peeler review.
I recently purchased the above lime green vegetable version then saw this offer for the pair sold together.
Whereas I'd previously deducted one star because the handle is a little too large & awkwardly shaped for small hands (my daughter of 12 had some problems with use) I've revised my feelings since it seems the larger oval shaped handle is somewhat safer and apparently suits arthritic fingers better. My only minor grouse is that the handle would benefit from a rubberised / non-slip surface.
Both peelers are excellent, attacking all kinds of veg and fruit with ease. The green veg version also shaves cheese strips effortlessly and the red one boasts a serrated edge blade for tackling both soft and hard fruit skin.
They contain a good sharp steel 'gouging' tip for removal of bad bits. The swivelling cutting blade is quite well forged compared with certain other peelers and I imagine is less likely to bend or snap. Protective plastic blade shielding snap-ons were also included.
The products are attractive, efficient and well made.
Purchased at £5.00 including delivery this offer is highly recommended, representing great value.
Unless you have tiny Pinocchio hands it's a sure-fire winner in the peeling stakes. Lol.
