A Peeler is a kitchen utensil with a metal blade used to remove the peel or skin of fruits and vegetables. It is a great tool to remove only the peel, without removing much with it. Peelers range in size and shape depending on their intended usage.
One type of peeler resembles a knife with an elongated hole in the blade through which the peel or skin of the fruit or vegetable is removed. Another type of peeler resembles a safety razor, and is used to shave off the skin into strips.
The most popular types of peelers include the Potato peeler, the Y peeler and the Aussie peeler.
There is also a palm peeler.
