Potato Peeler- The Safe and Easy Way to Peel Potatoesby Jhon Smith Web Analyst
Potatoes have been in existence for
a long time now. So too have been potato peelers. While a lot of people still
use the common knife for peeling potatoes, potato peelers have also been in
existence for a very long time now. They have made life easy for many a
homemaker around the world. Easy and safe to use, they can be counted among the
most used type of equipment in a kitchen.
While potato peeling machines are
available, the manually operated potato peelers still continue to be the
favorite, for the ease of operation that they offer and for the fact that some
of the models can also double up as onion peelers. There are various types of
peelers doing the rounds these days. One
of the most commonly used types is the ‘y-peeler’. This type of peeler looks
almost the same as a razor and is extensively used in many countries. The
Australian type looks just like any other ordinary knife. You can also find the
French ‘econome’ design peelers which come with a unique blade design
consisting of two slits.
In many places a mechanical apple
peeler is also used for peeling of potatoes. These crank operated devices can
cut an apple or a potato into a helical shape. They can also be used as an
onion peeler. They are also useful for cutting other fruits and vegetables
including, carrots, cucumbers, pears and beetroot too.
The most widely used are the
straight and the y-shaped peelers. Both of them can be operated with ease. It
is advised that right handed people need to use them with their left hand and
vice- versa. Whenever you are using an onion peeler or a potato peeler, make
sure that your hands are pushing the peeler in a direction opposite to your
body. This will ensure that you don’t end up accidentally cutting your fingers.
The best direction to start peeling,
whether it is for onions schiller or for potato wafers, is to start from the
center of the top. This will help you hold one side of the fruit firmly, while
you carry on the peeling operation on the other side. This will also help you
avoid accidental cuts too.
These days Onion Peeler is also being
extensively used, particularly in commercial settings such as hotels and
restaurants. In a restaurant setting, the potatoes are first subjected to
treatment using steam jets. This loosens the surface skin, which makes the work
of the peeling machine a lot simpler. There is another technology too that is
available nowadays, known as the ‘magna scrubber’. This machine consists of
rollers with rubber studs. The potatoes or beets or tomatoes are tumbled on the
rollers. This process helps remove the skin of the fruit or vegetable.
