Rosle Peeler – This is the peeler that brought my sister to tears. You’ll never find a sharper peeler. More a fine kitchen tool than a gadget, and you’ll feel the difference in the nice, weighted handle. I gave one to my sister just before Thanksgiving when she was dreading peeling potatoes for 35 people. She called me right after she tried it, and let’s just say it worked so well it made her cry! -- $29.99
