Vegetable peeling just got a heck of a lot easier with this compact triple-peeler. One round tool houses a serrated blade, standard blade, julienne blade, and bonus potato eye remover so you can switch from peeling parsnips to tomatoes in no time.

A thick bottom and sides, which retain heat for even cooking, and wide handles that are easy to hold when you’re wearing oven mitts make this pan a star.
