It’s summer in less than a month, which means we’ll officially make the switch from soup to salad season!

It also means it's a great time to start experimenting with different seasonal fruits and veggies, creating innovative slaws, and mixing up the normal meat-and-veg plates we've been dishing up through winter.

If you need some new kitchen tools, this set of peelers from OXO will become your new must-have.

The peeler with 15,000 reviews

Available on Amazon Australia, this range has racked up a whopping 15,000+ ratings and reviews - with the average star rating being a very tidy 4.6.

OXO Australia is a well-known kitchen and homeware brand for many Aussies already.


They make innovative tools to maximise your productivity and convenience while cooking, including air-tight food storage and luxe kitchen knives.

But this set of peelers is their best product yet.

As well as being stylish and ergonomic, OXO has defined the peelers by the individual uses they provide - some of which you’ve probably never considered—like, using a handheld peeler to shred cabbage? Genius.

OXO Good Grips Prep Y-Peeler, $17.95

The ‘classic’ of the range is ideal for use on potatoes, apples, zucchinis, and other similar vegetables.

The compact, double-sided design allows for fatigue-free peelings (important when you’ve got a bag of veggies to get through), and the Japanese stainless steel blades will stay sharp and rust-free for years.

OXO Good Grips Large Vegetable Y Peeler, $13.99

A bigger variation of the same Y-Peeler, this one is perfect for large vegetables, like big root vegetables, eggplants, and pumpkins.

The ultra-sharp blade easily penetrates the thicker skins that are common on larger vegetables.

It's also great at quickly shredding cabbage for coleslaws or stir fry, saving you from trying to chop it finely.

OXO Good Grips Asparagus Peeler, $9.50

Have you ever tried to peel asparagus with your potato peeler? And, was it a total disaster?

OXO has released a specific asparagus peeler with a specially-designed curved blade that works on both cooked and raw asparagus.

It’s created only to remove the tough exterior and leave as much of the tender inner stalk as possible.

Needless to say, these peelers have gotten rave reviews from their customers, with many saying they work "fantastically" or "like a charm".
