Comments: Do you need a special piece of equipment for every single kitchen task? No, definitely not. But we heard a member of our review staff oohing and aahing over one new tool that has only one task – to remove the skin from pieces of ginger, and she made a strong defense for buying this single-function tool. It works brilliantly and, unlike paring knives, removes only the skin. In fact, the stainless steel blade removes the peel while preserving the juiciest part of the ginger, which is just beneath the peel. The pointed tip is ideal for removing peel from corners and crevices

You’ll never notice it, but you’ll probably save enough money to offset the cost of this very inexpensive peeler by not throwing out bits of ginger attached to the peel. Actually, you’ll just get all the ginger you peel into your dish, rather than constantly throwing some out with the peel.
