I have been thinking about my blog and while I think the food is good, I think I need a little something else. I have decided to occasionally do some product spotlights.
My first product spotlight is the Williams-Sonoma Swissmar Peelers
These bad boys are awesome! I received this set for Christmas after using a serrated peeler over the Thanksgiving break and falling in love. The set comes with traditional straight edge peeler, a julienne peeler, and a serrated peeler. Also, not pictured, they come with hand-dandy covers for each one so you don't risk slicing your finger reaching for them in the drawer.
I don't know about any of you, but I hate peeling potatoes with a traditional peeler. I find I am more likely to slice my fingers open than remove skin from the potato. A serrated edge peeler is the answer to this!! It makes quick work of potatoes... even sweet potatoes. I have also used it to peel Butternut squash (if you have ever peeled one of these, one know this is miraculous). I have attached the blurb off the WS website about these peelers and even though my use is not exactly consistent with their description, I think we should think outside of the manufacturers box. I must say, well worth the $15 investment.
