Just because we don't recommend unitaskers for your kitchen doesn't mean we can't show them to you. Take a look at this potato peeler - clearly a modern attempt to update those old-fashioned table clamp styles of potato and apple peelers. This fascinates us, in a Rube Goldberg sort of way. It's a fairly self-explanatory gadget; just stick a potato upright on the spike, then let the peeler go. It automatically stops at the end of the skin. We wonder how well it works; has anyone tried it? And while we wouldn't buy one of these ourselves, we do wonder if it would be useful for people with arthritis who can't grip a peeler very well. Our grandmother doesn't enjoy peeling mounds of potatoes for Thanksgiving or Sunday suppers very much anymore, and a gadget like this might actually be more than a unitasker in the right kitchen. • Buy Rotato Express at Fresh Finds for $24.99 You can also buy a manual, hand-cranked version. • Original Rotato, $19.99 Related: Hot or Not?
