Does It Work: Titan Peeler

(KPLC) - The Titan package comes complete with two hand-held stainless steel tools. The smaller head is designed for peeling and slicing, while the julienne tool has the larger head used for grating and garnishing. But does it work?

Darren Daugherty of the Majestic Eatery agreed to test the Titan Peeler for us.

"It seems to be very, very sharp.  It's serrated," he commented as he looked at the packaging. "It grates, garnishes, shreds, shaves, peels, and slices. So let's put it to the test."

Darren began by peeling a cucumber, which proved successful, even working in both directions, eventually yielding thin, long slices. We were able to get thin round slices using the same blade for peeling. The julienne tool worked its magic on the cucumber, as well.

Next up, some hard cheese.

"It shaves cheese real well," Darren said. "If anybody knows, shaving cheese - getting nice thin slices of cheese - is always difficult. Of course, asiago cheese is a little harder, and it's pulling that off nicely."

The Titan Peeler peeled and sliced the potatoes with little effort.

Arguably one of the most difficult items to peel using traditional methods is the tomato. Did the Titan slice through?

Darren worked his magic on the tomato using the Titan.

"Tomatoes are always one of the hardest things to peel," he said. "If you're very careful with it, you can peel almost anything.  It's very, very sharp."

It seems nothing can get in the way of the Titan.

"I love it as a cheese shaver. It peels nice ripe tomatoes, [as well as] my hydroponic cucumbers," Darren said. "And you know what? [It slices] just great potato chips."

So the Titan peels back a "Yes" for this week's "Does it Work?" test. The Titan Peeler sells for approximately $15. The blades are covered by a lifetime warranty, and Darren warned that the Titan can be dangerous if not used properly. It can easily slice your skin and he doesn't recommend you let children use it. The packaging suggests you store the Titan and handle it with care due to its sharpness.
