Having previously used Microplane products, I was excited to receive these new-to-the-market Grip’n Strip peelers in the mail today.
One serrated and one straight blade. They don’t look like the peelers I’m used to. With a circular design, the grip is easily balanced against my fruits and veggies while eliminating the need to choose between the traditional straight or Y model.
Grip'n Strips swivel twin blades contour to the food being peeled for both left and right-handed users. This easily allows for a back-and-forth peeling motion, as well as bottom-to-top or top-to-bottom motions.
With its non-slip grip encircling the top edge, it handles beautifully, even with wet hands. This lessens the chances of cutting myself. We’ve all done it; peeled a thin layer of skin or a fingernail, while peeling a carrot. Not pretty.
For people with grip challenges (carpal tunnel, stroke etc...) the circular design enables easier, painless peeling.
These delicate tomatoes peeled beautifully without ripping their skins. There’s no need to force these super sharp blades. The plastic covers lengthen the life of these blades while protecting your fingers in a crowded drawer.
The small blemish removing end piece eliminates the need for a knife.
Even though they are dishwasher safe, I don’t put blades in the dishwasher. I wash and dry them by hand.
They feel durable in my hand, and I won’t be surprised to be using these same pieces for years to come. Visit Microplane for more information and pricing.
