Try the Tater Mitts gloves for potato peeling woes


Is it possible to peel potatoes (boiled) without a traditional peeler or say, a knife? Apparently it is – a company by the name of Tater Mitts claims that its brainchild, the potato peeler gloves, will help you do so with ease in under 8 seconds.

So all you have to do is to wear the gloves and rub the boiled potatoes, one at a time, in between your palms. The gloves have a serrated inner surface which pulls out the skin of the potato, leaving the flesh behind. And the gloves take away only a thin outer layer, ensuring that the nutrients are preserved.

Sounds simple, right? Wrong. Because, according to this Wired review, the process turns out to be quite messy and thus rules out their usage in high-volume potato peeling environments. From their stress test statistics, peeling a dozen potatoes not only leaves stubborn tuber residue on the mitt but also wears out the gloves significantly. A pretty raw deal considering the $20 price tag that it carries. Personally, a pair of strong hands is what I'd prefer over Tater (tattered?) Mitts anyday.

Also available at Amazon for $14.95.
