Holiday Gift Guide: Rotato Express Review & Giveaway



It seems that every year there is a kitchen gadget of some sort near the top of my Christmas list. I love to cook and any device that is going to make things easier for me in the kitchen is a plus. This is why I was thrilled to be able to review the Rotato Express from Starfrit.


What is the Rotato Express? It is a one touch instant vegetable peeler. It instantly peels fruits and vegetables with no effort from you. Using this unit to peel your foods cuts down on waste that results from manual peeling, which is great for me as I generally peel about half the potato off when I do it myself. Using this hands free peeler will save you time in the kitchen, I can do prep work while it peels potatoes for me. It will peel all sorts of veggies and fruits like potatoes, turnips, apples, pears, peaches, and more. The unit comes with two replacement blades stored in the bottom and a hand thumb knife in the back, so you can easily deal with blemishes on your potatoes. The three blades included with the Rotato Express will allow you to peel about 100lbs. of potatoes! That is quite a deal. Plus, it comes from Starfrit a quality brand I know and trust.

I tell you, this handy gadget really does cut down on meal prep time. When making mashed potatoes for 18 people, I was sure glad to have it around. It is a great addition to my kitchen and I am very glad to have it. I really hate peeling things, so this is a great product for our home.

Now, would you like to have one of your own? I have a Rotato Express to give one lucky reader. All you have to do is head over to Starfrit and look around a bit. Then come back here and leave a comment telling me which one of their products you would love to have. This is mandatory for entry.
