Summer is rapidly approaching and our favorite warm weather fruits and vegetables don’t seem so far away.

If you’re anything like us, you’re already dreaming of the bright and colorful pies, tarts, and salads you’ll be making in just a few months. But if you really want to make the most of tomato and peach season, you really need to buy a serrated peeler.

Adam Hickman, a recipe developer in our test kitchen, explains why:

Hickman says that, unlike a straight-edged peeler, a serrated peeler won’t tear apart soft fruits and veggies like peaches and tomatoes.

To use one, simply place the serration on the skin and gently peel. It’ll come right off—no blanching required!
