Tesco Go Cook Y Peeler
Advantages: Easy to use, well made, peels thinly
The fist thing to say is that the picture shown is not for the Y shaped peeler! However as the review title is for the Y shaped peeler that is what I will review! I nearly always cook from scratch and peeling vegetables is something I do daily. I am a bit of a sucker when it comes to kitchen gadgets and so when I spotted this stylish looking peeler from the Tesco go cook range I bought it.
Most of the vitamin C contained in vegetables is found just under the skin and so peeling the skin as thinly as possible is essential! I had been using a knife to peel with and it is really difficult to peel thinly and I would often end up peeling thick strips of skin especially from potatoes.
The peeler is a y shape ( hence the name). It has a sharp stainless steel blade and soft grip ,non slip black plastic handle. The peeler is dishwasher safe although I usually rinse it by hand. The blade is very sharp so you do need to be careful when drying ! I find the peeler really easy to use and it peels the skin away thinly so retaining those important vitamins. I use it mainly for peeling potatoes and it is a lot quickly than using a knife. I have also recently been given a bag of cooking apples and the peeler made the job of peeling them simple and efficient.
In the past I owned a Tesco swivel type peeler and found this a lot more awkward to use than the Y shaped peeler I now have. I really like the look and quality of the Tesco go cook range and think this peeler is great value for its £3.65 price tag.
Overall I would recommend the Y shaped peeler; just ensure you don't buy the swivel version!
Summary: Y shaped peeler from Tesco
