Last Week's Answer: Asparagus Peeler

Tired of those tough asparagus skins wedging the way into your teeth? Hate the thought of using a bland ol' knife to cut the bottoms off? Need another useless gadget to go alongside your quesadilla maker and avocado slicer? Suffer no more!

The asparagus peeler easily snips and peels even the most tender asparagus stalks into green goodies ready for cooking. It clasps shut for easy storage and is (yay!) dishwasher safe. What about those pesky skins on beans and peas? Slice those hateful hides into submission and never wonder about a last-minute re-gift for the holidays again.
