250/366: gadget girl – wavy peeler

In 2008, on our trip to Thailand, we did a two-day class at Pum’s Cooking School.

We bought a great little wavy peeler there, which helps cut vegies decoratively.

It is very useful for shredding carrot for a soup or salad.

If you shred evenly down the entire circumference of the carrot, when you slice that carrot it has a beautiful edge like a flower, and presents well raw or cooked.

It works well with cucumber too.

As I was preparing the photos for this post, I was also getting breakfast ready, which made me wonder if it could work on bananas too. The shredded outer part could either just be eaten or used in a smoothie.

The good news is that you don’t have to travel overseas to get one, as they are readily available at Asian grocery stores right here in the Land of Oz.
