Full Review:

Peeling fruits and vegetables can be a lot of work if you have baskets to peel. If you love potatoes in your dishes, that is a problem. And while a very sharp knife can skin those potatoes fast, it can be perilous. With this, our SolidSmack Household Appliance and Tool Research Team tried to find the safest, fastest, and easiest way to peel potatoes. We tested 24 models from the leading brands in the market and peeled over a hundred potatoes to try how efficient and convenient they are. We also gave scores on their ergonomics, ease of use and cleanup, and price. With all that, here is the best potato peeler of 2021: Starfrit Rotato Express 2.0.

We all love the conventional potato peelers that can replace knives to make your fingers safer. They also make things easier for you, but even such a peeler can be strenuous to use for a basket of potatoes. It is the reason why Starfrit Rotato Express 2.0 is a true champ of this roundup.

It is called “Rotato” for a reason. It works by simply fastening the potato on the bottom holder and securing it by lowering the upper holder. Then, press the red button. The motor will then spin the potato as the blade is pushed on its surface downward to peel it completely. The process only takes seconds, making it ideal for peeling bags of produce. In our test, it only took us 5 minutes to handle 10 pounds of potatoes.

Starfrit Rotato Express 2.0 can also peel other vegetables and fruits such as zucchinis, apples, mangoes, and more.

Our testers also loved how great its build is. Despite its plastic body, the ABS construction of the holders, the base, and the rest of its body. It can solidly hold and spin potatoes steadily while the body stays firm on the surface, thanks to its non-slip base.
