Do You Really Save Time Using the Samurai Peeler?

by Theresa on July 11, 2009 · 0 comments

Samurai Peeler is one of many [tags]home[/tags] kitchen gadgets by the infamous Chef Tony. You might remember him from the those Miracle Blades infomercials in the late 80s, and lately with his Smart Lidz. In this video review, Chef Mark Alfano of Alfano's Restaurant uses the Samurai Speed Peeler in his daily routine, cutting up various vegetables for his sauces and soup stock.

Pros

  • Ergonomically correct handle makes it extremely easy to hold while peeling.
  • Quickly peels vegetables like in the infomercial but it will take you some getting used to the back and forth motion of a peeler.
  • The stainless steel blades really are tough enough to cut through a two by four and stay sharp.

Cons

  • There's no advantage to using a peeler to take the outer skin off an onion. It's so easy to take the outer papery skin off by hand and cutting the edges off the onion. This way it won't make you tear up.
  • The Japanese Mandolin bonus gift is supposed to make uniform pieces but instead it shreds instead of slicing the vegetable and is not efficient.
  • The peeler alone costs $9 which is a reasonable price. Although if you buy it online at the main [tags]samurai peeler[/tags]infomercial site you're going to pay extra shipping charges for the bonus gifts.

Samurai Peeler looks like it works as advertised although I can't  justify paying extra shipping charges for the free bonuses.  It probably is already in stores that sell As Seen on TV products. I'm wondering how much time you'd actually save if you're peeling a small amount of vegetables especially if you're already used to slicing with your traditional peeler. Although if you're peeling up large quantities of vegetables or fruits for a dinner party or something it may be a time saver.
