experts in ceramic cutlery have developed another useful
tool perfect for any kitchen. Kyocera’s Ceramic
MEGA Peeler combines simple design with their advanced
Zirconium Oxide blade for a tool that can peel through
the thickest of rinds, including mango, melons and other
fruits and vegetables. The peeler is also useful for shredding
cabbage or shaving cheese and chocolate. Although the
gadget retails at approximately $10, the wide, rust-proof
ceramic blade is extremely sharp and will last much longer
than steel blades. However, be careful not to drop the
peeler, as ceramic can shatter.

We simply love to start a lazy weekend day with a soft
boiled egg and a couple of delicately cut slices of bread
to dip in. Those of you that want a perfect cut will have
to get ahold of one of these egg-top cutters. You can
also use it for hard-boiled eggs and use the shell in
preparation of items like L'Oasis chef Louis Outhier's
scrambled eggs with caviar. A bit of caution: your first
few tries won’t be perfect as it takes a bit of
practice to get it just right.
