This $10 Self-Sharpening Gadget is Best Thing Ever to Speed Meal Prep

For years, I’ve been relying on a pair of produce peelers. One is red, the other green. Green is for hard-skinned produce like potatoes, carrots, apples—the red peeler for delicate, soft-skinned items like tomatoes, pears, and grapes. OK, just kidding about the grapes, but you get the idea …

I’ve come to loathe my peelers, not only because they don’t do a spectacular job of peeling but because I can never remember which is which. I don’t think I have ever grabbed the correct option on the first try. And since they are not marked, I have to actually try, for example, the green one on a potato to figure it out. Should be red on an apple (makes sense) but I can’t remember. So annoying.

But here’s something I’ve never considered about any vegetable peeler. Like fine cutlery, a peeler needs to be sharpened! That being the case, surely my peelers are meant to be disposable. There is no way I could get in there with a sharpener.


Dreamfarm Sharple Self-Sharpening Peeler

After reading, testing, and joyfully throwing out my pair of peelers, I have added a new member to my kitchen utensil drawer—Dreamfarm Sharple. This clever gadget is a fruit and vegetable peeler that automatically sharpens itself every time I open it, use it, then again when I close it. How cool is that? My new Sharple has brought a little fun and a whole lot of efficiency to my meal prep.

Sharpest tool in the shed

Its swivel design reduces waste, and the blade can be safely washed in a dishwasher without any risk of rusting.

For prying eyes

The handle tip of this product includes a practical and highly efficient potato eye and blemish remover for added convenience. Super easy!

    Where can I purchase this peeler? Checked Amazon and they said “don’t know when or if this item will be back in stock.”

    A potato Peeler that does not go dull!
    I just bought it.
    I am so tired of having to buy peelers when mine goes dull after a while.
    Thank you so much for sharing that information!!!

    I have this peeler and I am thrilled. It is a great tool for all veggies. I have arthritis and this tool is so much easier to use. Even works on potatoes that have gotten a little to soft to peel.

    I do not have this peeler so I can’t comment on it. I do have an OXO peeler that literally changed my life. I refused to peel carrots before because it was so difficult for me. The OXO sharpener has such a comfortable handle and, despite not having a sharpener, has never felt dull in the decade I’ve owned it. I have gifted one to many people over the years.
