Microplane Professional Serrated Peeler
Does the man in your life enjoy preparing food? Then we have the perfect gift for him. Some peelers take off too much of the skin and leave you with hardly any of the fruit, this isn’t the case with the Microplane Professional Serrated Peeler as it has been designed especially to peel your favourite fruits. The handle is soft and easy to hold, with the Ultra Sharp stainless steel serrated double blade easily peels soft-skinned fruits and vegetables. We found it also worked well with cucumber, as well as tomatoes, kiwis, mangoes, peppers, peaches and more. Just one tip one buying this gift for someone, you may just need to buy two as once you use it you will never be able to go back to your old peeler.
