I came across this page (How to peel a mango) while surfing and I found it very interesting. What kind of methods and knives/kitchen gadgets do you use to peel fruits? Are there different tools to peel delicate and heavy skinned ones? According to the answers, I'm planning to buy suggested tools/knives to peel fruits.
I am not one to fall for the "as seen on tv" sales pitches... however, I came across the Titan Peeler's on sale at a Bed Bath and Beyond.
Let's say I have never looked back! They are absolutely amazing, dishwasher safe and great for peeling anything.
Potatoes, apples, carrots, kiwi, you know it the peeler is great.
Between a good chef's knife, a good paring knife, a standard vegetable peeler and your fingers you can basically peel any fruit you need to.
Some fruits require extra work to peel like having to first score and blanch a tomato to more easily peel the skin off.
I've seen some special hardware for various fruits, but it's so focused on one fruit that it's hard to give any recommendations unless you're going to be peeling a specific fruit very often. Things like apple peelers that spin and cut at the same time come to mind.
I use 2 different veggie peelers. One has a smooth blade, and one has a serrated blade. The serrated one is great for some of the "tougher" or thick skinned items. The teeth really get a good bite into the flesh.
