Just What We Needed Dept: The Rotato


Sometimes we just slap ourselves upside the head and say "how did I ever live without that?" That is why we have such big kitchens- to house our garlic express, our soda can disenfector, butter cutter and the automatic martini maker. But now we have to add on to provide room for the Rotato.

This amazing device uses electricity to remove the vitamin-packed skin of the potato, leaving you with just the inner carbo goodness.


There appears to be a manual version for those off grid types, but who would want that?

Our source, The Unclutterer, notes that "It doesn’t slice, it doesn’t dice, it doesn’t even julienne! All it does is peel, peel, peel."
