Gadgets That Make Me Happy- My Favorite Messermeister Peeler


It’s amazing how little things make me happy-especially things in the kitchen. I try to keep up with all the new, small gadgets- but there are so many out there and it is impossible to keep track. I do enjoy using the right gadget while cooking- it is amazing how much time I save doing so.

My Mom loves collecting small gadgets for her kitchen as well- I guess that is where I get the habit from. I always find myself in the small gadget area at Bed Bath & Beyond, Crate and Barrel and William Sonoma. I love looking at all the colorful, cute gadgets.

The one I have chosen to talk about today is the peeler (Messermeister). We forget how important a good peeler is. I use it on a daily basis. I peel potatoes, mangoes, cucumbers, etc. I even use it to make chocolate curls. I bought this particular one last year once my previous one was on its way out. It is available on Amazon as well as at kitchen a la mode (for those who live in the Maplewood/South Orange area). After I buying it, I brought it home to test it out and realized how fantastic this peeler was. It is a cinch to use  and does not involve much effort- it swivels!!

I especially found out how good the peeler is when my sister in law came to visit and used it in my kitchen. She had stopped using one since she didn’t like how hers worked. After using mine, she promptly ordered one for her online.

This past Sunday on Mother’s Day, as I prepared dinner, I asked my husband to peel the potatoes. He proceeded to use the peeler and announced how easy it was to use. That is when I decided to write about it and tell all of you.

So, go get yours- you won’t regret it. While you are at it- tell us what you love using in your kitchen and can’t do without…
