A few months after I graduated college, I got a job as a prep cook at a French restaurant, where I learned that snails come in cans and if you spill a tray of 12-hour braised duck confit on the floor, it’s kind of a big deal. But one good thing came from this experience: I met the love of my life, aka the Kuhn Rikon Original Swiss Peeler. Before the fall of 2017, I was only familiar with straight swivel peelers. I never gave vegetable peelers a second thought. It was one of many essential kitchen tools in my culinary tool belt that I’d reach for to make skinless mashed potatoes, butternut squash soup, or apple pie. But it was never something that I would, say, bring to my grandparents’ house to use on Thanksgiving (eventually, I just bought them their own).

Until one day, Maria, the kind dishwasher who I am forever indebted to, saw me struggle to peel a 40 lb box of potatoes for our hand-cut frites. The stainless steel peeler that I was using had a swivel blade that was on its last leg and I had blisters from the uncomfortable handle. She winked at me and pulled a banana-colored peeler from the front pocket on her chef’s coat. “Mama, here,” she said to me. “Oh gracias!” I replied, not knowing what to make of her generosity. That is, until I started to peel. The fluid, sharp motion of the blade hitting the vegetables, and the large surface area that it covered, was mind-boggling. I saw the words “Kuhn Rikon” molded into the candy-colored plastic handle and I immediately ordered four.

Mascarpone Cheese Has a Life Outside of Tiramisu

  Mascarpone Cheese Has a Life Outside of Tiramisu You probably know mascarpone cheese as a key player in tiramisu, the chocolatey, espresso-infused layered Italian dessert. But it’s so much more than that. Make extra creamy scrambled eggs by folding mascarpone cheese into the mix or spread it on a piece of toast and top it with smoked salmon and chives. But what exactly is mascarpone cheese? And how is it different from sour cream, cream cheese, or crème fraîche…or is it? Mascarpone is essentially an Italian version of cream cheese, though with a slightly higher fat content; mascarpone must have 40 percent fat, while cream cheese only needs to have 33 percent.

This Y-shaped vegetable peeler made peeling potatoes an enjoyable task (shhh, don’t tell the sous chef I said this). But contrary to what I have told myself, there are other vegetable peelers on the market that are just as good and dare I say better than the colorful Swiss peeler.

My Personal Favorite

Kuhn Rikon Original Swiss Peeler

The one, the only Kuhn Rikon in all it’s rainbow glory. Not convinced? Take it from the nearly 15,000 Amazon shoppers who gave this vegetable peeler a five-star rating. But I haven’t been totally honest with you yet. The thing is, this vegetable peeler is cheap and eventually, it will prove that. My blades get rusty within a few months of use and one even fell off altogether. Should any of that deter you or I from stocking up for the first or hundredth time? Absolutely not.

OXO Good Grips Pro Y-Peeler, $11.99

Every traditional Rom-Com follows a similar framework—typically, it’s a heterosexual pair. Sometimes the girl is uptight, sometimes she’s not. Sometimes the guy and the girl are best friends and sometimes they’re enemies. Ultimately they fall in love but not without a little turbulence from the cooler, hotter, smarter guy or gal who comes along.

A Taco Bell in Las Vegas is the only one with a taco-themed wedding chapel — take a look inside

  A Taco Bell in Las Vegas is the only one with a taco-themed wedding chapel — take a look inside Wedding planner Victoria Hogan told Insider she's averaging about 30 weddings a month at the Taco Bell Cantina on the Las Vegas Strip.Taco Bell's flagship Cantina restaurant in Las Vegas, Nevada, is the only Taco Bell with a built-in chapel. Enter the restaurant from the action-packed Strip, take the stairs, and you're standing in a serene wedding chapel … that's Taco Bell-themed.

That’s the OXO Good Grips Y–Peeler. I would never say that it’s better than the Kuhn Rikon (but it is) nor that you should buy it instead of the Kuhn Rikon (but you should). It’s just that I’ve owned one of these for longer than four Kuhn Rikon peelers and you really can’t beat the ergonomic grippy handle on this peeler.

Interchangeable Peeler

Global Vegetable Peeler with Interchangeable Blades, $54.95

This stainless steel vegetable peeler has multiple blades including two double-sided straight blades for your usual peeling jobs (think potatoes and carrots), a serrated one for thick skins such as lemons, butternut squash, or eggplant, and a blade to julienne vegetables for matchstick carrots or cucumbers.

Amazon’s Pick

The Absolute Best Way to Make an Egg Sandwich .
In Absolute Best Tests, Ella Quittner destroys the sanctity of her home kitchen in the name of the truth. She's seared more Porterhouse steaks than she cares to recall, tasted enough stuffing for 10 Thanksgivings, and mashed so many potatoes she may never mash one again. Today, she tackles the egg sandwich. The breakfast sandwich has been around for far longer than you or your hangover. In Breakfast: A History, Heather Arndt Anderson writes that the first recipe for “a true breakfast sandwich” appears in an 1897 cookbook called “Breakfast, Dinner and Supper.” The instructions are as follows: “Use stale bread.
