“ Brand: WMF / Type: Peeling Fork „
I just found this jacket potato peeling fork in my kitchen drawer amongst a variety of other gadgets. To be honest I'd completely forgotten about it and it's been a while since I used it. I first decided to buy it on a whim after seeing this one by the German brand WMF for £8 on Amazon and thinking that it might turn out to be really useful.
The fork is made from silver stainless steel which is both rustproof and Cromargan polished. It does indeed look very professional and high-quality. The fork is only small at 15.5cm long so fits nicely in my drawer and consists of a rounded handle which is relatively thick and comfortable to hold for long periods of time in case you have a lot of potatoes to peel. This ends in three thin knife-like tines on one end which you can use to pierce the potato before baking and to hold the potato after it has just come out of the oven or microwave. These tines are very sharp and so you do have to be careful not to prick yourself. At the other end is the peeler itself.
It is really easy to use and operates in much the same way as a standard potato peeler by scraping the silver edge along the potato to scrape off the peel. It works really well as the metal peeler is large enough to take off decent-sized chucks of peel at a time and the peel comes off really smoothly without having to apply much pressure at all. It's also really easy to keep clean as its dishwasher safe so I usually just chuck it in.
Overall, although it hasn't turned out to be quite as useful as I had hoped due to me completely forgetting I'd brought it I can't fault the performance of this appliance. It has lasted well and still functions perfectly so, although it is quite expensive, you can definitely see the quality so I would recommend.
