Fruit and Vegetable Peeler – Detailed Review
Price + Packaging
Although there is not MRP mentioned on the box, we bought this peeler for Rs 199/- from Amazon. It is packed in a black carton. The peeler and its packaging, are both, fairly lightweight.
Material + Construction
All the three blades are made of stainless steel. The rest of the body and handle are made of plastic. The sides and handle are bright green in color.
This works on a twisting motion. The handle needs to be rotated to change the blade style. The blades are not detachable, they can be changed by rotating the handle.
This peeler is equipped with three blades, each meant to serve a unique purpose. One is for peeling, the other is for softer skin, and the third is for julienne cuts or thin strips.
The twist motion worked fairly smoothly. This is quite comfortable to hold, and doesn’t feel unnatural. The blades are sharp and work well, as they were intended to. The peeling motion is smooth and efficient.
The small round protuding element is meant to remove potato eyes and ours did a decent job, but it’s not too efficient. Would recommend a regular knife for that.
Even the cleaning process is hassle-free. We did not open the peeler, and ran it under tap water and rotated the blades two-three times. This ensured that none of the veggie peels remain in the peeler causing it to rust faster. Make sure you dry it well before storing it away.
- Economic pricing

- Sharp blades
- Delivers on promise
- Easy to clean
- One blade had a stain
